Apparently, a percentage of the population (myself included) experiences a sharp rise in libidinous energy the night after tossing back one too many. I decide to research the phenomenon earlier today on account of being once more afflicted due to last night’s consumption. Mind you, I’m far from being extremely nauseous and having a major headache… I just could have done without those last couple beers.
I have been unable to find any factual info about this. Only anecdotes and bewilderment by many confused and feisty people.
I would like to share in your bewilderment, having never heard of nor experienced this condition. When I’m hungover, I’m too busy feeling nauseated or having really stinky gas to crave sex. (ymmv, maybe it’s a gender thing? I’m female)
My guess is that alcohol messes with many different brain functions, triggering post-consumption phenomena such as extreme hunger and craving for fat and protein, a vague feeling of unease, tearfulness, “the stares”; horniness is just another misfiring of some neurons caused by the comedown from the intoxicant. But I have no actual idea nor cite.
At times, when I’m drinking I drink too much to get it “up”. On these occasions I give my girl oral satisfaction, then sleep. In the morning, of course, I’m up and raring to go from the night before. Sometimes I get nooky, sometimes not. If not then it’s time to take the situation in hand…
Makes sense. If you’re incapable of getting out of bed, there’s still one method of built-in entertainment that is still easily available to you. It doesn’t take much stimulation to let the libido override the desire to not move.
Back in my youth when I routinely got plastered, the morning afters were often inspirational, in a weird way. Amidst the headache and general weakness there was a positive feeling of coming to my senses, of sharpened acuity and mental clarity, right about the time when my blood alcohol dropped to zero. Often I’d be horny, too. I think this was simply because of the dulling effects of alcohol wearing off, and normality feeling extra-special in comparison.Hey, I can actually feel my penis, and I like it
That’s funny, I thought it was just me. Mind you I’m a rather randy fellow for the most part anyway, but it happens to me too. Of course I’m in no state to actually do it as I tend to look and smell like something a hobo discarded at that point, but boy howdy I’d like to.
Quite, quite different. To me, morning wood is a purely physiological thing, with no desire attached to it. Whereas hangover horniness is a strong sense of non-specific desire, even if one is still too wasted to do anything about it.
