Topic: sexual health
In the course of my past two years covering health and wellness issues for Blisstree, I’ve often been surprised by what draws vitriol and what doesn’t. Time and again—be it with my own or my co-writers’ posts—the ones I fear may stir anger never do; and those I’d never have suspected provoke intense scorn. More

But researchers at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health say pretty much anyone who’s had more than four or five drinks is more likely to have unsafe sex.
In the study, researchers randomly assigned participants to a drinking or sober group, and asked them to rate their intention to have unprotected sex. The more alcohol they consumed, the greater their intention; at 0.1 mg/mL blood alcohol level, the likelihood of engaging in unsafe sex was up by 5%. More
