Findings in a recent research have warned that alcohol consumed with energy drinks can ultimately result in young adults indulging in risky sexual activities. However, the case doesn’t stay true in case caffeinated drinks are avoided.
The research carried out researchers from University of Buffalo in New York, included questioning 648 students aged between 18 and 21. They were enquired as to how many times they consumed alcohol mixed with caffeinated drink during the last month and how many times did they engage in risky sexual activity.
It was administered that 75% of the students combined energy drink with alcohol. These students were more likely to have sex with someone they were not aware of or maximum acquaintance.
Moreover, it was stated that such category of students would be highly drunk and won’t be in their sense while they have sex. However, the mixture of the two drinks was proposed to have no effect on their decision to use protection or not.
Study author Kathleen Miller compared both the cases, one in which students took alcohol alone and one in which they mixed the drink with energy drink, and concluded: “The addition of caffeine had effects on their promiscuity that didn't happen with alcohol alone”.
