Learn more about the unfortunate phenomenon of Whiskey Dick through this beginner’s guide, alongside important tips to avoid softening that morning wood.
Defining Whiskey Dick
According to Medical News Today, Whiskey Dick is defined as:
“a temporary condition where a person cannot get or maintain an adequate erection after consuming too much alcohol.”
Additionally, it’s a non-medical term for an alcohol-related erectile dysfunction (ED) or alcohol-induced sexual dysfunction towards penis owners. Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get an erection hard enough for sexual intercourse. Due to this, it leads to emotions of shame and embarrassment towards the penis owner, while perhaps their partner feels disappointment if they were anticipating sexual intercourse.
This condition happens because alcohol is a depressant affecting your central nervous system. This would then cause your brain to slow down alongside other parts. And most definitely, that includes your penis. It’s no wonder our brains would take time to process and concentrate on our surroundings. It even messes with our limbs when we try to walk or move while under the influence. What more when you’re trying to do the deed?
This condition is also why the confidence levels of penis owners drop while their anxiety increases. Further on this, this study shows how testosterone levels can lower in under 30 minutes from drinking, lessening one’s capability to have erections and even have sexual drive.
Facts About Whiskey Dick
There’s so much more that lies behind whiskey dick than just being a soft, uncooked weiner when stuffed with too much alcohol. Below are extra interesting facts about whiskey dick to know of, for you or your partner. Whoever has the balls in the relationship, pun intended.
1 Whiskey isn’t the only alcoholic culprit.
In fact, another name to call Whiskey Dick is drunk dick because all kinds of alcohol can bring you to that state. Even with varying concentrations, all alcoholic drinks contain ethyl alcohol or ethanol. In other words, the more alcohol you intake, whatever kind it is, the more likely you’ll be affected by whiskey dick.
2 There’s no certain amount of alcohol you intake to get Whiskey Dick.
Yes, no special formula will bring you to this point. There are no studies between erections and the effects of alcohol done so far. Hence, there’s no way to predict how many drinks will get you there and affect your body and attitude because we react to alcohol differently. Some may handle it better than others.
However, we can delve deeper into the factors influencing our alcohol tolerance. Dr. Paul Turek, a reproductive urologist and expert on men’s sexual health, pointed out how factors like age, metabolism, ethnicity, and genetics shape influence one’s tolerance.
A few extra factors under this caliber include:
- Blood alcohol level
- Medications being taken
- Speed of drinking
- Whether you’ve eaten or hydrated
- Physical and emotional status
3 Once it’s there, better luck next time.
Although whiskey dick is a temporary kind of erectile dysfunction, there’s no chance you can get laid that night. Alcohol can numb your body, especially your private parts. Even if you try to please yourself, you won’t feel much of an impact compared to when you’re sober. Not only that, you can’t predict how the alcohol can metabolize in your body, and most professionals say that it can stay the whole night. So when the dick is numb, it’s numb. Since you can’t wrap it before you can even tap it, wrap it up for the night and perhaps reschedule your dick appointment to when the d can get up.
4 There’s a link between alcohol dependence and sexual dysfunction.
Social drinking with close companions is one thing. But binge drinking or gaining a co-dependent relationship with alcohol is a completely different story. According to this study, consecutive drinking can eventually lead to such dysfunction, including premature ejaculation and reduced sexual desire. For that, you won’t achieve your aspired orgasms and even begin to have a drinking problem from the first whiskey dick incident. For that, drink responsibly, folks.
5 There are a few variations of Whiskey Dick.
Whiskey dick is a type of erectile dysfunction triggered by alcohol. As an ED, you may find it difficult or impossible to get hard at all or simply have a weaker erection than when sober. Some may get an erection, only giving them a while to reach those o’s. As for others, they can get hard but not maintain it until the bedroom, or there’s really no erection at all.
6 Alcohol actually messes with your process of getting aroused.
A literal cockblock! Because alcohol is a depressant, it meddles with your coordination, memory, and nervous system. Thus, when you’re feeling horny, your nerves won’t give the proper signals to react and all. So when the mind is willing, the body won’t cooperate.
This also means less blood flow to the penis and an increase in angiotensin, a hormone in charge of heightening your blood pressure and helping your body retain water and sodium. Based on Hims, whiskey dick causes vasoconstriction, or a narrowing of your blood vessels. Thus, it becomes more difficult to remain hard.
7 Whiskey dick can be rooted in dehydration.
Alcohol is a diuretic, which hastens the process of getting rid of fluids and sodium from your body through your renal system. This is why we often tend to have bathroom breaks in a social drinking system, leading to dehydration and a drop in blood volume. It’s an endless cycle of getting thirsty and then urinating after, but only to reduce your chances of getting an erection because you need strong blood flow to get your penis to spike up.
8 Getting whiskey dick doesn’t mean your partner isn’t into you.
So your partner drank a shot or 2 extra than their limit, and now their penis has softened. Whiskey dick is merely a natural manifestation of how alcohol responds to their body. It’s nothing emotional or personal since they decided to outdrink themselves. The frustration you may get is understandable (it happens), but again, whiskey dick is unpredictable. Your partner may feel under the dumps too, so rather than still pursuing a sex-filled night, be understanding and talk about it. That way, you’ll know more about your partner and their limitations so you’d know how to avoid a situation like this again.
9 Having a soft penis may mean that you’re not ready to do the deed.
Listen to your body. If you don’t, it’ll make you listen…. through whiskey dick.
If you’re out on a date and mayhaps gotten quite intoxicated, yet capable of thinking and deciding that you want to sleep with them, your body may feel otherwise with pressure. Thus, your mind can be aroused and ready to be put in the zone. Yet your penis refuses to get hard. Take this time to reevaluate if you’re really prepared to get steamy with someone, not for the sake of getting it over with.
10 If it happens, there’s no need to panic.
Again, whiskey dick is temporary. Often, it can happen to a penis owner once in their life at a random time, and that’s it. Hopefully, they know their limits by that time and refuse to be put in that situation again. In other words, whiskey dick is not an immediate sign of erectile dysfunction in the long run. It’s more of a wake-up call to not overdrink and another way to know more about your health down there. Having a short-lived temporary erectile dysfunction cautions you to be more open and aware of possible vascular problems in the future when left ignored.
Whiskey Dick Prevention Tips
With the important facts listed earlier, it’s only reactive of us to avoid such a scenario. And for that, we compiled our top prevention tips for getting a soft dick when you’re in a steamy mood.
1 Drink in moderation.
The less alcohol in your system, the better. Not only to keep your dick up but in general, if you aim to live a long life. Plan ahead of time how many drinks you’ll have in any social drinking setting, whether alone or with close companions. Hold yourself responsible for your actions because nothing goes well in excess, especially with alcohol.
2 Sleep it off.
Since whiskey dick is unpredictable regarding how long it’ll last, most professionals say it’ll stay that way until all the alcohol fully metabolizes into your system. So chances are that it’ll be all good the following day. So before bracing yourself for a hangover, it’s best to get some rest to re-energize and make it up to your partner as soon you’re hit with the popular morning wood.
3 Eat and hydrate!
Never ever drink alcohol on an empty stomach! You’re more prone to blackouts and insanely bad hangovers if you ignore supplying your body with needed nutrients. Make sure to have some food in your stomach and constantly hydrate with water or non-alcoholic drinks before going out. Because when you’re full, it can actually slow down the absorption process of alcohol in your system.
4 Be honest with each other.
As mentioned earlier, getting whiskey dick can be an embarrassing cockblock. If you’re the penis owner struggling to get an erection, be open and transparent to your partner about it. Inform them that it occurred due to your drinking habits that evening (or whatever part of the day), and that it’s unknown when it’ll be okay again. Not only will they learn more things about you, but it’s more relieving to be genuine with them without judgment since sex should be a topic you constantly communicate on.
Meanwhile, if it’s your partner that’s going through a state of whiskey dick, please don’t let it affect you personally. Again, this is not a reflection of their attraction towards you. Instead of letting your possible frustration elevate, slowly let go by listening to your partner and their concerns. They’re just as discouraged and need all the support they can get. Because that’s what partners do; to be there for each other no matter what your dynamic is.
5 Don’t force yourselves.
Whiskey dick numbs and makes one’s penis flaccid for a good erection. So don’t try to revive what’s already malfunctioning for the night, and move forward to other non-sexual activities. Especially when you’re drunk or tipsy, you’re more prone to making irresponsible decisions you’ll regret the following day. An example would be committing unprotected sexual acts that don’t have penetration because your mind is slowed down and lacks proper thinking skills.
