A new survey was just released that asked New Yorkers about their sexual habits. While most of the results were what you'd expect (i.e. most people lie about the number of people they've slept with), there were some surprises. 

The most surprising result was that a majority of New Yorkers consider alcohol an enhancement to sex. 

Now, it's not surprising that a lot of people consume alcohol before having sex; it's just weird that people consider it an enhancement. It's especially surprising that men consider it an enhancement.

There's a term "whiskey dick," and we all know what it means: A guy drinks too much and can't get his dick hard. It doesn't only result from drinking whiskey — any alcohol can bring it on. Apparently, there are a bunch of men in New York that hope to get whiskey dick.

While it might seem weird at first, when you think about it, it makes sense. Sure, there are obvious effects of whiskey dick that can ruin the fun. If you know how to handle it, however, then it can come in handy.

We sat down and figured it out, and here are the benefits of whiskey dick:

1. It slows him down.

Sex is exciting. Sometimes it's good to having something in your body that keeps things from getting too exciting too fast. It's about finding the right level. Not enough and the party ends too soon; too much, and the party never happens.

Just right, and the party lasts long enough where you don't have to apologize to your guest.

2. He tries new things.

If you're having trouble getting things to work, then you have to get creative. Maybe you try a new position, or a new move, or a new technique. Even if it doesn't work out this particular time, you've stored the data for future research.

3. He's more honest.

Everyone knows that alcohol is basically a real life truth serum. That's especially true in embarrassing situations. Hey, everyone has their own sexual appetites, but it can be hard to admit those to a stranger.

However, if you're drunk and feeling like you may need a little help getting things going, then you won't be able to stop yourself from being honest. No matter how hard you try.

4. He's more relaxed.

When things aren't working right, it's pretty stressful. Well, guess what doesn't help? Stress. At least when you're drunk, you're more likely to stay calm and see what happens. Also, you'll be more likely to say, "I can't do this now. Set an alarm and we'll do it in the morning."

5. He's braver.

Even if you're suffering from whiskey dick, at least you got this far! You approached someone you'd normally be too intimidated to talk to. Now you just have to figure out a way to always have drunk confidence without also destroying your equipment at the same time.

6. He's got an "out."

The thing about being drunk is that it's not a constant. There a different levels to being drunk, and as the night goes on, you'll experience each one.

Sometimes, the drunk runs low and you find yourself sober and with someone you don't want to be with. Well, even if you're not actually suffering from it, claiming whiskey dick is a good way to get out without hurting anyone's feelings.

7. He can be himself.

We don't have to be proud of it, but we all pretend to be someone we're not when we're around strangers. Meeting new people is intimidating, so we feel the need to be the best, if not entirely accurate version of ourselves.

Unless we're drunk, in which case, we just don't care. Even if the night ends in embarrassment, at least we got to introduce you to the actual us.

8. Sometimes, it's better when things don'

Look, when we're drunk, we don't always make the best decisions. Sometimes we get involved with someone who maybe we shouldn't get involved with.

In those situations, let's just say it's not always bad thing when our body doesn't want to work. It might be embarrassing in the moment, but the next morning we're thinking, "Thank you, whiskey!"
