Hi again,
I'm curious about alcohol and sex. A friend of mine was drinking the other night and our guy friend took her home. She said she remembered all but about 5 minutes of when he took her home but said she's nervous because she can't remember that 5 minutes and is scared maybe she had sex with him. It seems impossible to me that if you couldn't remember a 5 minute period and that was all you couldn't remember, that you could have had sex in that time and not know it. Is she just being paranoid? It is it possible? I told her I didn't think it was possible but I'm no expert of course and now it's got me curious.

Hi There,

Well, it's certainly possible that *something* sexual happened in those five minutes. Alcohol can lower inhibitions, and impact memory. That doesn't mean that the something sexual was intercourse.

Is there anything specific that is making her worried that there was sexual activity besides just not being able to remember that five minute stretch of time?Beyond that, we really couldn't say one way or another what happened with your friend.

No she says she has no reason to believe something happened she just usually doesn't forget things so I think it got her nervous. She's really scared by pregnancy so that doesn't help. And I don't believe she would do it I think she was just concerned. I know alcohol lowers inhibitions it just seems impossible that you could remember all around a 5 minute window. But I could be wrong, that's why I was curious

Drinking alcohol can lead people to have hazy memory or even lapses in memory.
