Alcohol and drugs are not a good combination, at least not for the people who are impulsive. People do crazy things when they are drunk or stoned.

Multiple survey report reveals that people get drunk just to have an amazing sex.

A study which was conducted in the United States Of America suggests that drinking alcohol and getting stoned simultaneously can increase the odds of unsafe sex for women than for men.

“Women could be especially vulnerable to the negative consequences of unprotected sex (e.g., unwanted pregnancy, STIs) when they are under the influence of alcohol and/or marijuana,” said the lead author of the study Jumi Hayaki, a psychology researcher at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.

“Our results seem to indicate that men’s sexual behaviour, at least with respect to condomless vaginal sex (sexual intercourse) with an opposite-sex partner, becomes disinhibited at a higher threshold than for women,” Hayaki said in an email.

When women who are at their teenage or 20's/30's get drunk and stoned on the same day, then as per the study, they’re three times more likely to have unprotected sex than men comparing from the days when they don’t use any of those substances, the study found.
