5 Scientific Reasons Drunk Sex Is A Terrible Idea

June 10, 2015 2 min read

There are few among us who hasn't been there. You're a few drinks in, feeling pretty good, hitting it off with someone new or feeling particularly into your partner, and you just can't wait to get home and rip the clothes off. Problem is, it is a terrible idea. Even science says so... Here's exactly why you should probably take a pass.

1. It numbs the vagina

Alcohol depresses the central nervous system. This inhibits the part of the nervous system that control respiration, circulation and sensitivity of nerve endings. These areas are crucial for arousal and orgasm so if you're loaded, it makes your sex feel a little less than earth shacking.

2. It affects his erection

Consuming large amounts of alcohol has been linked to erectile dysfunction. Alcohol causes dehydration which causes a decreased blood volume and a rise in angiotensin, the hormone associated with erectile dysfunction.

3. It can prevent either of you from getting off

Alcohol has been proven to delay or prevent orgasms. In 2004, a study found 11% of alcohol users were more likely to have issues reaching orgasm. The fellas had difficulty ejaculating and the ladies required far more stimulation than sober women.

4. It stops her from getting wet

It may lubricate you socially but it isn't so when it comes to sex. Again, booze dehydrates you and that includes vaginal lubrication. He can't finish and she's desert dry. Sounds more than just a little uncomfortable.

5. It makes you more likely to forget protection

Alcohol has been proven to make you 7 times more likely to have unprotected sex. STDs and possible babies are so much more serious than your drunken desire to hook up. Do these facts give you a reason to pause? Is this enough to make you reconsider?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
