MOST peo­ple have BOOZE to thank for the num­ber of notches on their bed­post.

A new sur­vey has re­vealed that a whop­ping two-thirds of Brits have only ever bonked on the first date when they’ve been un­der the in­flu­ence.

Just 30 per cent of peo­ple said they had shagged a part­ner for the first time when they were stone cold sober, ac­cord­ing to a poll by dat­ing app Temptr. I’M GONNA CLI­MAX FOR YOU!

The sur­vey quizzed more than 2,000 Bri­tish adults, aged 18-40, about their first sex­ual ex­pe­ri­ences and whether they were fu­elled by the hard stuff.

Ac­cord­ing to the find­ings the main rea­son for so many drunken romps was nerves, with a whop­ping 81 per cent of peo­ple ad­mit­ting they downed a drink to calm them. And 58 per cent said their lack of self-con­fi­dence was the main rea­son they felt the need to guz­zle so many drinks be­fore hop­ping into the sack.

Founder of Temptr, Jack Knowles, com­mented: “Hav­ing sex on the first date is com­pletely up to the two peo­ple in­volved.

“If you feel com­fort­able with the per­son and you feel as if you’ll have a good time, go ahead and don’t let other peo­ple judge you for it.

“How­ever, if you do not feel com­fort­able with the idea of hav­ing sex, don’t drink just DON’T get me wrong, I’ve def­i­nitely had sex­ual en­coun­ters where I’ve necked a few drinks be­fore­hand to calm any jit­ters – but not every time! Sex can be great when you’re both a bit tipsy as all of your inhibitions go out of the win­dow, but peo­ple shouldn’t rely on it to have a good time – you can’t be drunk every time you shag. to put your­self at ease and then go home with your date.”

The dreaded feel­ing that some­thing could go wrong was an­other worry, ac­cord­ing to the adults polled, with 42 per cent of those polled ad­mit­ting they have wor­ried about po­ten­tial sex­ual blun­ders.

Fi­nally, al­most one in three peo­ple con­fessed that they re­gret­ted the first time once the deed was done.

The most com­mon rea­son put for­ward for re­gret­ting it was...that they were too drunk to en­joy it! I’VE never had sex on the first date, all of my ‘first times’ have been a few dates in when I feel com­fort­able with the per­son. And by the time I feel com­fort­able enough to sleep with them, I don’t see the need to have a drink. Plus, when you’re sober there’s no risk of for­get­ting what you got up to next morn­ing – and you need to know whether it’s a romp worth re­peat­ing!
