well some books that have to do with sex, and involve trying a lot of new things, sexually and mentally, suggest that you may want to drink, or get intoxicated by other means to loosen youself up. (That is with your partener when you have both discussed the event and all)what do you think of this?

It would seem to me that if a person had to anesthetize part of his/her brain in order to have sex, then s/he hasn't passed the sexual readiness test. Alcohol can relax you but it can also badly impair your judgement as several contributors to these boards have already mentioned.

But i'm somewhere in b/w ThisGuy and Bobo. Part of me says it's wrong at all ... But the wine thing w/ dinner seems fine. It all depends how much you mean to drink and why you want to drink in the first place.
If you can only have good sex when you're semi plastered ... Well that can't be good.
I don't know what books you've been reading, but they were obviously written by authors who don't know a thing about the human sexual response cycle and how it works, or about understanding consent.
Gumdrop has excellent points. Studies have shown for a long time that having sex under the influence massively impairs judgement, and people who would usually use condoms and safer sex practices or effective birth control tend not to very often when inebriated. In addition, at Scarleteen, it is important we remind everyone here that if you are under the legal drinking age, you cannot lawfully drink.
And lemme tell you: if you ever end up in an acquaintance rape situation and were unlawfully drunk, you royally screw yourself when it comes to having a case.
In other words, just not smart. Not to mention the negative effects it has on sexual response.
