Surely this is something you've discussed among friends, but to give your next conversation about the nuances of sex under the influence a bit more weight, teams of researchers from New York University and Johns Hopkins University published two separate studies on the topic in the Archives of Sexual Behavior and Psychopharmacology. The first study in Archives of Sexual Behavior is an in-depth, qualitative study that focuses on the details of how marijuana and alcohol affect sex, and followed the sex lives of 24 participants — 12 men, 12 women, all heterosexual — to glean information. The second from Psychopharmacology focuses on cocaine's effect on sex based on controlled administration of the drug to 12 participants who didn't know whether they were taking the drug or a placebo during the study. Some of the surface findings seem cool and fun — people are more talkative! Sex lasts longer!

My drinking is out of control. Getty - Contributor 3 I have a boyfriend but act like I'm single when out with mates I went to a nightclub last week and I got really drunk on cherry vodka and lemonade. It tasted good but made my head spin. At the bar, these two guys started flirting with me. I knew them by sight as they live in the town. I think all my judgement had gone.
Emily Barrett 1. We've always known this to some extent especially those of us who have woken up the next day in a stranger's house with nothing but a dry mouth and a distinct feeling of regret , but now it's been scientifically proven. In a small study of 24 heterosexual people - half men, half women - researchers found various ways in which drinking alcohol or smoking marijuana can affect sexual prowess and performance - and it's not always positive. However, before we reveal the 14 ways that getting drunk or high will affect your bedroom habits, it should of course be mentioned that doing the dirty with anybody while intoxicated is not recommended, as a person should be able to give consent before they get down to business.
