Annie (AKA Hey Terra!) has been around long enough to have experienced a lot of what Life can dish out. But, it hasn’t been so long that she's forgotten what it's like to be your age. Check out some of the thousands of email questions teens from around the world have sent to Terra. You may learn something useful from her answers:
“Can drinking alcohol make a guy's sperm not able to get a girl pregnant?”
Hey Terra,My friends were talking so I wanted to clear this up... Does a mans cum water down if he has been drinking?? Is it possible that a man cums in you but because he has been drinking you don't have to worry about getting pregnant??
ABSOLUTELY FALSE!!! What a guy drinks or eats has nothing to do with his ability to make sperm and get a woman pregnant. (Though if a guy is really drunk then he could have trouble sustaining an erection, but that's another story.)
If you are having unprotected sex (which is the only way a man's semen <cum> could get inside of you) you are:
- AT RISK FOR PREGNANCY
- AT RISK FOR SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES like herpes, HIV/AIDS, and lots of others. Click here for the whole list.
Are those enough reasons NOT to have unprotected sex?
I hope this helps you and your friends take better care of yourselves.
