About Dr Love



I am only mentioning drugs in the context of human sexual behaviour.
I am often asked about the effect of drugs on potency and fertility, for example.  We all know that alcohol causes 'brewers droop', which is to say that a guy who's drunk may be randy but he can't always perform.  Marijuana, on the other hand, tends to cause the opposite problem — a guy can go and go but sometimes can't ejaculate.  Conversely, a small amount of alcohol can improve staying power so long as the guy is not too drunk to benefit from it. It has been known to help sufferers of premature ejaculation, for instance.

And, yes, the bad news is that prolonged use of some drugs, such as 'speed', can cause infertility.

I'd like to say don't take drugs at all, but, if you must, at least consider why you do.  It is the addiction that is at fault, not the substance to which you're addicted.  There are many forms of addiction, including addiction to sex.

A recent fad that needs a mention is body-piercing, for example, of nipples and genitals.  Health authorities warn that bloodborne diseases such as hepatitis B and HIV/AIDS could be contracted by people who come in contact with body-piercing implements or infected blood during the procedure.  The same also applies to tattooing.  Again, don't let fashion or peer pressure lead you into taking risks with your health.

Your body is your responsibility, whatever your age, and no quick thrill or fashion fad can be worth putting it or your life at risk.  Always keep that in mind and don't let anyone talk you into doing something you feel is wrong for you.
