Men have a lot of questions when it comes to alcohol and sex. After all, there are a lot of myths and rumours about this on the Internet today. With that being said, in this post, we are going to take a look at one of the most common questions men ask: does alcohol make you last longer in bed?
So, can you last longer in bed if you have had a few drinks?
Alcohol can make you last longer in bed – this is true. The reason for this is because it can delay ejaculation. Drinking a lot can delay ejaculation, which means it can take you more than 30 minutes to reach an orgasm and ejaculate. However, it is worth noting that there is a fine balance! Some men are unable to ejaculate at all if they have been drinking a lot. Having a few drinks is unlikely to have an impact on this.
Research about the link between alcohol and sexual activity
There has actually been quite a bit of research on the subject as well. Prof Dr George Lee Eng Geap, Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur consultant, revealed that intercourse intervals are very variable between people. However, there are a number of different factors that can influence the duration, including age, degree of arousal, partners, and the circumstances during the intercourse session. One factor that was looked at was drinking alcohol before sex. It was discussed that a small amount of alcohol can help to prolong ejaculation. This is because alcohol has an impact on the central nervous system. It helps to slow down the brain activity that is required to achieve an orgasm. However, as discussed, if you drink too much alcohol, it can result in you not being able to ejaculate at all, and so you should keep this in mind.
What drinks are best for lasting longer?
When it comes to your drink of choice, dark brews, in particular, have been shown to be beneficial. This is something that Dr. Kat Van Kirk has spoken about. She has revealed that brews like Guinness are rich in minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin B, as well as others with probiotic qualities. Phytoestrogens, which are chemicals found in alcohol, are those that have been proven scientifically to delay orgasm. This means your overall health can be fortified and you will not feel sluggish during sex because these drinks are better on your stomach.
Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of the impact that alcohol has in terms of how long you are able to last in bed. While it is true that alcohol can result in you being able to last longer, this does not mean that you should drink excessive amounts of alcohol. If you do this, you may not be able to finish at all.
