It’s a tough choice, but it’s likely that most people would give up alcohol before they gave up sex.
Not the booze-loving Aussies. According to a new survey by charity FebFast, one fifth of Australians would miss grog more than nookie if forced to abstain.
And it’s not just sex they would be willing to give up in order to carry on drinking.
The poll revealed that 12 per cent would rather get rid of their car, while the same number would willingly ditch their mates.
Of course it could be the case that too much booze is having an adverse impact on their sex life, hence the reason why so many Aussies would give up sex first.
According to Dr David Delvin, a GP and family planning specialist, alcohol is a major cause of erectile dysfunction.
He explained that many men who consume large amounts develop what’s referred to as Brewer’s Droop and tend to lose interest in sex.
Women can also experience problems with flagging libido by drinking too much, he added.
So perhaps if the Aussies laid off the booze they’d find they were a little more reluctant to go without sex.
