How much does booze affect your *romantic performance*...?
This question is for both sexes...

Does it take a lot? Is it only certain kinds of alcohol?

:toast:

Share your tales of woe and embarrassment with us all, won't you?
:hi:

1. Depends - after 1 beer, affected a little
1 hour later after that beer, I'm actually better.

2 beers? Forget it.

2. Really? Two beers and you're out?
Guess you'll just have to stick with the vodka! :toast:

5. 1 beer = 1 hour later good. 2 beers = 2 hours later good.
Now I can perform, just not well

3. It depends on how drunk I get.
Once I'm puking drunk, I'm not much use to anyone. If I'm just buzzed, it makes me a little more aggressive (in a good way). I really don't drink much anymore, though, not that I've quit or anything.

6. After two drinks, I fall asleep.
Generally, this is considered bad date behavior.

7. One drink is enough for me
to get into it, I can be more erm.. outgoing and expressive (normally quite reserved.)

two or more is an invite to go to sleep so I don't do that.

But the truth is, the right person will make me feel like that without the booze. I'm still looking for that man.

12. Its takes a few more drinks for me, but they have the same effect...
I become more, open, I guess is the right word, normally I'm somewhat shy, I also end up laughing a lot, honestly, its more like giggling.

22. Oh yeah, I know all about it
I've done some really stupid stuff in that condition too, sadly.

I would really love to find someone I feel free with without the booze!

Don't see it happening anytime soon though.

24. Yeah I've done plenty of stupid stuff too...
Mostly it involved me developing a new bruise the next day.

As far as the other thing you are talking about, well, I think I through with relationships, the last woman I was with, this past Thanksgiving, just used me and then dropped me. I think I'm done with that shit, it hurts too much.

13. Only affects my interest, not performance
After a few beers/shots-"in the mood".
After several beers/shots sleep is the only thing on my mind.

15. Not a valid question for me because of meds.
I can't drink. And if I did, even one shot would mix with the meds and take me out entirely. :P

Too much and I'm too numb to enjoy. It's finding the correct timing.

Not that it matters anymore.

but with subsequent libations, I lose any and all interest. That said, I don't have any tales of woe and embarrasment- I've never had a fabeled "coyote morning."

40. Not really....
and I drink just about everything. Perhaps beer has a lesser effect on me than wine or spirits/mixed drinks but it's only marginally less.

Once I get a chance to try Absinthe, I'll let you know the effect of that.... ;)

what a great thread idea.

For me, it makes me much, ah, friendlier and uninhibited... and amazingly I last forever when I have had a few...Unless I have had too much, then I just go to sleep/pass out...

There have been many episodes of strip beer pong to prove it too... :evilgrin:

32. "Lechery, sir,
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 03:01 PM by montanto
provokes and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes
away the performance . . . it makes him and it mars
him; it sets him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him and
disheartens him; makes him stand to, and not stand to . . ."

--Shakespeare

But seriously, I can drink a great deal and still perform. As a previous poster said, it actually increases my stamina. Of course there are limits, and I have reached them on occasion. I don't suffer any embarrassment about it though. Hangovers on the other hand always dishearten me!!

:beer:

Regular lagers, not light beers. In those kinds of situations I cut myself off after 1 beer or 1 drink of hard liquor.

and thus pretty much uninterested in any romantic performance.

It was almost pointless.

Sober is much better. And I don't drink any more.

56. I don't know.
Okay, after one pint of beer, or a couple of glasses of wine, no problem. After six or seven pints of beer, not good. That has been my experience. I haven't done enough research to find out where the tipping point is.

Given that I haven't drunk alcohol now in like five years, the tipping point is probably very few drinks.
