7 Do's and Don'ts for Mind-Blowing Drunk Sex

Drunk sex is a favorite for many college students and shy adults alike. Why? Well alcohol isn't called liquid courage for nothing. Alcohol is a huge confidance boost for many and usually facilitates feel-good vibes. If you find yourself taking some cutie home after having a few, then you definitely need to keep these do's and don'ts in mind.

  1. DO ask how many drinks they've had

    When you are about to get it on, definitely take a second to ask how much your partner has had to drink. The last thing you want is to start getting it on and them to fall asleep or worse… puke.

    The lines can already become very blurred when it comes to drunk sex, so make sure to check in and make sure your partner is in a good place - both mentally and physically - before going to pound town.

    There is nothing worse (and potentially slightly illegal) than waking up next to someone who has absolutely no recollection as to what happened last night.

  2. DON'T forget to lock the door or to go somewhere private(ish)

    While there might be some temptation to find the nearest closet or bathroom at whatever party or bar you're at, try not to make love in the club.

    I am a huge proponent of having sex in public places, but if you've been drinking, you are not at your stealthiest. The last thing you want to do is get caught and thrown out of the club or your buddies house for banging in his bed.

    Plus, drunk people have the habit of starting to hook up in the middle of parties, and no one needs to see that.

    Save yourself the embarrassment - and potential legal trouble - and go back to your place to get it on.

  3. DO use a ton of lube

    Okay, time for some science. Alcohol dehydrates you, a lot. And yeah, dry mouth sucks when you're trying to make-out but know what sucks more? Dry vag. And it's totally a thing.

    Dehydration caused by drinking will keep your partner (or you) from getting wet. This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as "whiskey vagina" and is easily the most unfortunate symptom of drinking.

    However, it is fairly easy to remedy with a whole lot of lube. That's why it's always a good idea to keep the disposable packets of lube, along with plenty of condoms, in your pocket or purse when you're going out.

  4. DON'T try any acrobatic sex poistions

    Similarly to how I wouldn't recommend you push it with having sex in public places while you're drunk, I wouldn't encourage you trying anything acrobatic.

    If you think it's a good idea to try some different and potentially dangerous sex position while drinking, you're a little dumb. If you wouldn't do it sober in a shower for fear of slipping and cracking your head open, then don't try it drunk.

    Don't try anything that involves lifting, twisting, or things of that nature (you're also less flexible when you're drunk because you're dehydrated!). Otherwise, you're going to pull your back, drop your lady friend, and look like a complete idiot.

    Instead, opt for lazy sex positions that are usually better suited for morning sex.

  5. DO watch your nails

    One thing I've noticed with drunk sex is, even if you weren't rough, you always wake up with inexplicable bruises and scratches all over your body.

    I encourage you to watch your nails. Girls, if you have anything sort of acrylic nail style that resembles a talon try to refrain from scratching his back and keep your nails away from his eyes. You'll find yourself waking up alone after your one-night stand if you manage to bloody him up.

    Guys, if you haven't clipped your nails in a long time maybe try to keep from aggressively doing anything with your fingers. I'd recommend sticking to external use of your extremities because your nails are probably dirty and may be broken or unfiled. The last thing you want is to cause any sort of internal bleeding if you catch my drift.

  6. DON'T forget to hydrate

    Sex is a physical activity. You wouldn't go on a run without hydrating before and after, right? So try to get some water in your system before and - at the very least - after you get it on.

    This will help with flexibility, making it less likely you'll get a muscle cramp mid-coitus, and with dry mouth which will make kissing a whole lot more pleasant.

    Before getting on, try to stop touching each other for five seconds so you can pour yourselves a glass of water to keep bedside.

  7. DO keep checking in verbally

    Keep in mind: you are drunk. And sometimes you might find yourself or your partner getting more intoxicated as you have sex. So make sure you keep checking in verbally because the last thing you want is the other person to pass out or black out and you do not realize it.

    Make sure that neither of you is feeling gross or uncomfortable. If you need to stop, stop. You can always pick this up again when you're sober.

  8. DON'T get embarrassed if you can't finish

    Believe it or not, not being able to finish is something common amongst both sexes. So don't get uncomfortable if you can't finish.

    Whiskey dick (and/or vagina) happens to the best of us. The other person is extremely likely to understand and not think any different of you for it

    Besides, this is what morning sex is for! Try to get the other person to an orgasm and if all else fails, call it a night and pick it up in the morning!

  9. DO stop and take a breather if you feel nauseous

    I have been on the internet enough to know that drunk sex can quickly end in a cringe-y disaster. If you start to feel dizzy or notice that your partner is acting weird, stop and check in with them. The last thing you want to do is end up covered in puke.

    Just the thought of there being a possibility that you could puke on a partner, or get puked on, even makes me gag. Just know that if you're having drunk sex, this is a real possibility, so make sure you open up communication immediately so that this doesn't happen to you.
