SEX AND SEXUAL PROBLEMS: MEDICATIONS

It’s amazing how many people say they had their first experience of intercourse when they were drunk or lost their inhibitions under the influence of recreational drugs. Improving your libido is one thing but if your inhibitions go out the window, so do all the promises you make to yourself about safer sex. The morning after can find you with more than just a nasty hangover. Interestingly though, hitting the bottle in a big way interferes both with a man’s erection (brewer’s droop) and a woman”s capacity to orgasm. Some recreational drugs like cocaine will reduce pain and this can be downright dangerous with some sex games, particularly the ones that involve toys and implements. Without the limits of pain you can do a lot of damage that will be an unpleasant surprise when the drug wears off.

Prescribed medications can affect your sexual responses too, so it’s important to know the possible side effects of any of your drugs in case they are responsible. If erection problems come on.

after you start a new medication it’s always worth checking whether the drug is the problem. Some blood pressure tablets fall into this category and it would be easy to explain away the erectile failure as an inevitable part of getting older. There is a long list of other drugs that can affect sexual ability too, like the oral contraceptive pill and some antidepressants.
