Beer was wonderful for my sex life. Especially when it was consumed in mass quantities by young college girls.

" Problem drinking may dampen both a man's sex life and his chances of having children,"

Judging from the dickheads who get beer muscles, I'd say this study is crap. Funny how thier names are usually Mick or Yo! Vinny.

alcoholic men can develop signs of low testosterone, including shrunken testicles and enlarged breasts

Booze has only hurt my sexlife in that it has made give my REAL number to women of a sort that don't pose for "Vogue" if you know what I mean.

Other than that, the "whiskey" aspect of sex makes a man quite popular and a woman more than willing to distribute your Resume', if you know what I mean.

Other than that basic error on the part of the writer, I find the scietific idea that booze means you don't have to pull out, being a BAD BAD BAD message. I think most 19 year old married men will agree with that.

(did I go to far with that?)

I wasn't aware that one drink every few months constituted "problem drinking."

I have always said that sterilization agents should be mandatory in any malt liquors sold in the United States. Better to post this at DU, it will scare the welfare queens. If they are unable to breed they will be unable to shake us down for money.

According to the researchers, these findings likely reflect direct damage to the testicles caused by excessive alcohol.

They also had a far higher rate of erectile dysfunction (ED) - 71 percent, versus 7 percent of abstainers.

Its called "whiskey d***". I don't need to convene commission to authorise a sutdy to produce a report in India, mind you, to tell me that.

They're learning this now? Prostitutes knew all about this, more than two centuries ago:

...I had no tender inclinations. I made an apology very easily; and she was very good, and said it happened very commonly after drinking. However, I was much vexed. --James Boswell, journal entry for June 5, 1763.

Could be holding you tonight,
Could quit doing wrong, start doin' right.
You don't care about what I think.
I think I'll just stay here and drink.

Hey puttin' you down don't square no deal.
Least you know the way I feel.
Take all the money in the bank.
Think 'll just stay here and drink.

Listen close and you can hear,
That loud jukebox playin' in my ear.
Ain't no woman gonna change the way I think.
Think 'll just stay here and drink.

Instrumental Break.

Hurtin' me now don't mean a thing.
Since lovin' you, don't feel no pain.
My mind ain't nothin' but a total blank.
I think I'll just stay here and drink.
