Study group discussion: Alcohol and sex

This my viva question.. The boldest I have come across. The external asked me how does alcohol affect one's sexual performance. I went through 50 shades of red within a minute!

Haha. I think it decreases sexual performance.. As in erection. I'm not sure though. Heard it somewhere.

I said, it increases the desire but decreases the performance.
He quoted a line by Shakespeare then!

Alcohol causes loss of libido.

Sexual dysfunction in the alcoholic may be due to the depressant effect of alcohol itself, alcohol-related disease or due to a multitude of psychological forces related to the alcohol use. The spectrum of sexual dysfunction encompasses:
Decreased sexual desire—persistent or recurrent deficiency or absence of desire for sexual activity giving rise to marked distress and interpersonal difficulty;
Sexual aversion disorder—persistent or recurrent aversion and avoidance of all genital sexual contact leading to marked distress and interpersonal difficulty;
Difficulty in erection—recurrent or persistent, partial or complete failure to attain or maintain an erection until the completion of the sex act;
Difficulty in achieving orgasm—persistent or recurrent delay in or absence of orgasm, following a normal sexual excitement phase;
Premature ejaculation—persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation, before, on or shortly after penetration and before the person wishes it, which causes marked distress.

Alcohol abuse is the leading cause of impotence and other disturbances in sexual dysfunction.
