Study: Alcohol Leads to Sloppy Sex and Poor Choices

So they aren’t the most shocking study results, after all most of us have  had the drunken one night stand experience at least once. You wake up, wonder who in the heck is lying next to you and then the whole night comes flooding back as you slowly try to inch your way out the door.

According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, Canada, however, there’s more to consider then just waking up  next to “Bad Breath Larry”.  According to the study, the more alcohol a person consumes, the more likely they are to have unprotected sex.

HIV Plus Magazine reports that,”Researchers found that an 0.1 mg/mL increase in blood alcohol levels raised the likelihood of engaging in risky sexual behavior by five percent. ”

That means if your a female it will only take about four drinks, or five if your a male, before you forget everything you’ve learned about HIV and STIs and say screw it..lets just screw.

Of course, some of the side effects from such actions are hangovers, a burning sensation when urinating, or a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis, and or the transmission of HIV.

“Since alcohol abuse is one of the leading factors in HIV transmission, lead author Juergen Rehm said HIV prevention programs should put additional focus on reducing heavy drinking,” reports the magazine.

If you do suspect you have been exposed to HIV or any other STI, contact your physician as soon as possible. In Idaho, you can also get a free HIV test at your local a.l.p.h.a. office or call your local health department for more information.
