For many women, alcohol is not only a way to relieve stress, but also an opportunity to relax before sex. A recent study from the UK showed that 75% of women like to “recharge” before going to bed with a boyfriend or spouse, and 6% of women never have sex sober. Five British women frankly told why they drink before engaging in an intimate relationship.
Women, like men, do not mind relaxing over a glass of strong drink. For most of them, alcohol is a stress reliever and relaxation tool. Intimate relationships are also a challenge for self-esteem and self-confidence. This is one of the reasons why ladies breastfeed before sex. Sometimes this habit leads to unexpected consequences.
Here are the frank confessions of British women who are afraid or have ever been afraid to make love sober.
Drinks to relax, but sometimes it leads to injury
Sam Walsh, 43, lives in Kent. A dose of alcohol before sex helps her to forget about any inhibitions. She doesn't get drunk in the trash, but loves to drink a glass or two to relax and tune in to the right wave. This is especially helpful when a woman goes to bed with a new boyfriend.
Sam divorced her husband in 2013. After the divorce, she had one long relationship and several dates with men from dating sites. She began to think less about work, and more about intimate life. Alcohol gives her the opportunity to relax as much as possible before sex and relieve stress after a hard day at work.
The British prefers prosecco and Sauvignon Blanc. The wine makes her drunk, but not splash drunk. The woman admits that she did not know the measure before, drank too much and even fell asleep during a romantic date. In addition, Sam has suffered several injuries during sex. Once she accidentally drove her knee in the eye of her boyfriend, leaving him with a bruise. There was a case when a woman sprained her ankle, falling out of bed. Drunken sex has another drawback - in the morning it's hard to remember how wonderful the night was.
Alcohol helps to forget about the complexes associated with the body
Hairdresser Melinda Dean, 33, lives with her two-year-old son Kaidan in Wolverhampton. When the British woman was 20, she loved to flirt with men, and before that she was always charged with alcohol. Such a pastime helped her to forget about complexes and taboos.
Melinda was very young when her mother left them with her father. As a teenager, she survived the death of her dad. The girl did not have the right guidance for adulthood. In her youth, she was unsure of herself, hated her figure and large breasts. To somehow cope with painful feelings, the girl drank 3-4 glasses of alcohol on dates before kissing a guy.
When it came to sex, the British woman made love under the covers and with the lights off. It often happened that Melinda woke up in the morning with a man and did not even remember who was sleeping next to her. The girl had to undergo regular examinations by a gynecologist.
Only after Melinda became a mother did something switch in her head. She fell in love with her body and stopped worrying about any flaws. Now a woman drinks before sex only if she wants to experiment in bed. She no longer limits herself to just the missionary position and leaves the lights on. Now Melinda is very confident and enjoys sex in a sane state.
"World Champion" in drunken sex
Eleanor Conway, 41, lives in London. She has not been drinking alcohol for 5.5 years, but for a long time she had sex only while drunk. In the past, the woman suffered from alcohol and drug addiction.
Eleanor interacted with men on dating sites and often slept with them on the first date. This happened when she was 20 - 30 years old. She was constantly charged with alcohol before making love. After the British woman began to lead a sober lifestyle, it took two years to get rid of the habit of casual sex. Now a woman is enjoying the act of love without a drop of alcohol and is very happy about these changes.
Lost count of drunk sex
Rachel Lewis, 27, lives in London. As a teenager, she was unsure of herself, and after the 21st birthday she realized that complexes can be forgotten with the help of alcohol. Alcohol loosened the tongue and gave courage in order to start a conversation with the guys.
Alcohol changed the girl's social life. After drinking, she became talkative and flirted with men, gaining the courage to take the first step. Rachel easily dared to sleep with a guy after drinking hard drinks. She lost count of casual sex.
Two years later, the girl tried to determine herself. She realized that she had never tried to make love sober. The British woman realized that this was not normal and decided to go to bed with a man without alcohol. It took Rachel two years to dare to take such a bold step. Now the British woman does not drink when she goes out with friends, so as not to awaken in herself an uncontrollable feeling of lust.
Wine made me feel sexy
Megan Thomas, 32, lives with her daughter and son in Kent. After divorcing her husband five years ago, she started dating. Due to the stress of breaking up with her husband, she lost her confidence and lost a lot of weight. Alcohol helped the woman to calm down and gave courage before the next meeting with a man.
After a few glasses of wine, most of the guys seemed more attractive to her. In some situations, a woman would not enjoy a date if she were not drunk. Alcohol made it possible to feel more seductive and easier to agree to sex. As a result, lovemaking ceased to bring satisfaction, since Megan's sensations were completely blocked due to the alcohol she had drunk. She no longer had sex sober.
Two years ago, Megan decided to quit drinking. At the time, she had a steady boyfriend. The woman tried to make love while sober and was pleasantly surprised by the difference. Since that time, she has become more confident in herself. Now, when a British woman enters into an intimate relationship with someone, she chooses the right men and enjoys the process, remembering every bright moment.
