Which sex is better?

Back in the day, during my early sex-having moments, I must admit, I used to knock a couple back to relax before engaging in a little one-on-one action. Hey, don't judge me. I needed a sip or five to open up in what was a really big deal for me back in the day. Nowadays, I'm usually doing it with a significant other, so I don't need much to loosen up my inhibitions.There are some people who still do it for the numbness, and there are others who do it to enhance sex. I've been there—drank a little alcohol to get in that place where sex gets amazing. But, the way my heavy-handed pours were set up, I got drunk which led to not remembering much. That's the exact outcome researchers discovered in a study conducted on men and women. Joseph Palamar and his colleagues at New York University drafted 24 heterosexual adults to participate in answering in-depth questions about their sexual experiences that involved marijuana and alcohol.
