    Binge Drinking Leads to Unsafe Sex

    Ya think?.........

    And so for our Blinding Flash of the Obvious Archives:

    Binge drinking leads to unsafe sex

    Friday, September 5, 2008

    (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- According to the Centers for Disease Control, 75 percent of alcohol consumed in the United States is in the form of binge drinking -- and that staggering figure is contributing to unsafe sex and STDs among women, according to a new study.
    Results of the study show binge drinking, or drinking five or more alcoholic beverages at a time, puts women at a substantially greater risk for engaging in unsafe sexual practices and contracting gonorrhea.

    How is this "new" news. I have many times before that drinking and specifically binge drinking leads to "risky" conduct like unplanned unprotected sex, STD, rape, sexual assault and other risky and stupid conduct.

    But it continues and will likely continue.......

    Exactly. But maybe I just think so because I'm a reprobate and many of my formative years were spent drinking too much followed by unsafe sexual activity.....
