Can you imagine a romantic night without a bottle of champagne or a glass of red wine that will relax you?
A nice conversation, delicious food, and a drink of your favorite alcohol are a must-have on your date night. First, you eat, drink, and cuddle; afterward, it’s time for some love.
If you think alcohol before making love is bad, then you’re probably right. However, that counts for large amounts of alcohol, like 4-5 glasses or more. This amount of drinks can only make you drunk, not horny.
The reasonable amount that will spice up your sex life and increase your libido is about 1-2 glasses of red wine, champagne, or your favorite liquor.
Everything beyond will mess up your sexual performance. So, let’s see what drinks can make you hornier and ready for love.

Does Drinking Alcohol Make You Hornier?
The common belief is that drinking alcohol has an aphrodisiac effect and makes you hornier. But is this true? Does drinking alcohol make your sex life better? Does alcohol have the same effects on women and men?
Here is the real effect that alcohol has on your sexual desire and performance.
Effects in Females
If you’re female, alcohol can have some effects on your sex life
One or two drinks may boost your sexual arousal
Testosterone is a male sex hormone that affects your sexual desire. When you drink alcohol, your testosterone levels rise, and you will have more sexual desire.
But that counts only for one drink because if you consume more alcohol, you will get the opposite effects –your sexual arousal will decrease.
Your mindset also plays a big role in increasing your sexual desire. Because when we drink, we feel more confident and sexier and expect to meet someone. If you wish and subconsciously want something to happen, there is a big chance that it will happen.
It can weaken women’s genital sensitivity
Small amounts of alcohol have less impact on women’s genital sensitivity, but too much alcohol can significantly decrease their genital sensitivity.
Therefore, when it comes to mixing alcohol and sex, it’s best to drink only small amounts of alcohol, to relax a bit, and not to get drunk and be unresponsive.
Orgasms are harder to achieve
Many women have difficulty achieving orgasm after drinking larger amounts of alcohol. There are cases when women drinking more than two drinks need longer stimulation to achieve orgasm than the ones that drink only one drink or none.
But there are also cases when women can’t reach orgasm when drinking alcohol.
It makes it harder to get wet
When women are horny, the blood flow in their genitals increases, making them swell and prepare for intercourse with self-lubricating.
But if you have too many drinks, this self-lubricating can not occur at all. This can result in friction, pain, and discomfort during intercourse.
Effects in Males
Alcohol also affects men’s sex life, and they can experience some difficulties
Getting an erection might be difficult
Drinking larger amounts of alcohol can affect men’s ability to get an erection. While drinking too much alcohol regularly can cause erectile dysfunction. But there are also other ways alcohol can affect men’s sex life. For example:
Alcohol depresses your central nervous system.
Alcohol boosts angiotensin II, a hormone associated with erectile dysfunction. Alcohol also decreases the blood flow to the penis and can delay ejaculation.
It’s unlikely that 1-2 drinks will delay or prevent ejaculation, but drinking larger amounts will certainly do. On the other hand, one drink can make you hornier and increase your sexual desire.
Common Myths About Alcohol and Sex
There are various myths related to alcohol and sex. According to some studies’ results, what is true and what is false is easy to conclude.
When you’re drunk, everyone looks more attractive to you
There are few studies on this topic, and the conclusion of one study from 2014 is that when we are drunk, people look more attractive to us, even the people that we would not find attractive when sober.
That means when we are drunk; everything looks beautiful to us. We can even end up in bed with someone we normally would not like. The reason for these unwanted situations is the effect that alcohol has on our brains and body.
When drunk, we can have slurred speech, blurred vision, changes in our behavior, mood, and judgment, loss of coordination and balance, and slow reflexes.
Everyone Processes Alcohol in the Same Way – FALSE
It’s not true that everyone processes alcohol in the same way. Men and women absorb and metabolize alcohol in different ways.
Men have more body water than women, even if they have the same body weight. Therefore, men have more water to dilute the alcohol and lower concentrations of alcohol in their bloodstream compared to women.
That means if a man and a woman drink the same amount of alcohol, they will not get drunk at the same time.
You Can’t be Sexually Assaulted When You’re Drunk – FALSE
Suppose you have a few drinks or even get drunk; that is not a justification for unwanted sexual activity. According to research, alcohol is contributing factor and can be the reason for sexual assault.
Therefore, getting clear consent from both sides is necessary before any type of sexual contact. Drinking alcohol and getting drunk is not an exception to this very important rule. It’s extremely important to get consent when drinking alcohol and engaging in sexual activity because if the other person is drunk and can’t give you consent, you’re committing a sexual assault. You can be charged and go to jail for rape.
Alcohol Helps Your Performance in the Bedroom – TRUE
Alcohol helps your performance in the bedroom and increases your interest in sex, but only if you drink it in small amounts of 1-2 glasses. If you consume larger amounts of alcohol, it can have negative effects on your sex life.
Alcohol can definitely make you hornier, but only if you drink it reasonably: two drinks per day for men and one for women.
Anything more than that can make you drunk and mess up your sexual performance, and instead of being hornier, you will become worried.
