Pleasure Center

Volume 4, Issue 13, November 23, 2013

As I took one drink, I started to feel more relaxed and uninhibited. I felt I was able to calm the shyness and embarrassment I felt to take another step forward. I was feeling more relaxed but, still stressed from the day’s events I decided to take a couple more drinks, I felt euphoric in a way I had not when I was sober. I felt looser or it loosened up my way of being, I was better able to talk and socialize with the drinks I had, my body loosened up and the tight muscles and joints became loosened. I continued to look around me but, still was not confident with what I had, so I continued to drink more putting back three or four more drinks, I started to become less stressed and then I loosened my clothing revealing an unbuttoned breast. The men started to notice me and I felt beautiful and sexy. I forgot I had to meet my friend. I took my time in walking over to the bar again because I was really confident now. I drank up two more drinks making it somewhere around five or six within an hour and a half. I stumbled and my head began to spin, I could not keep my head up and everything was so blurry that I didn’t really see faces, it was all a blur. I fell, struck my head, but there was no pain. I stumbled to the bar and do not know how many more drinks I put down because when I woke up I was having trouble breathing, I completely blacked-out and this guy was on top of me, and I did not know who he was, or how I got to that room. I was raped because I did not know who or how I got to this place.

Alcohol and its effect on the pleasure center of the mind-brain is a myriad of emotions, altered states of mind, and fleeting moments of pleasure. It has numerous effects on the mind-brain and body listed below:

  • Anxiety reduction
  • Euphoria
  • Sedation
  • Dis-inhibition
  • Aggression
  • Forgetfulness
  • Tolerance
  • Blackouts
  • Addiction
  • Withdrawal

The drinks of alcohol of one (1) to seven + (7+), can lead to the behaviors that transpired above in responses and reactions that lead their victim on a downward spiral of semi-conscious and unconscious behaviors, that are marred by the inhibiting nature of alcohol. Many of the women who are raped or who may not even report a rape are victims while under the influence of alcohol. Of 270,000 students between 1950 and 1990, 55% of those who reported are victims of assault where alcohol was involved, including and not limited to sexual assaults and violence. Current college drinking reports and statistics have estimated that alcohol related assaults has rose between the 1950's and 1997.


The table below shows the averages by percent of the population of alcohol related incidents.


Alcohol is a mind-altering component [{Kotulak, Ronald (1935- ). P.105}].

Alcohol affects and causes a neurological mutated response or reaction that is fired off when it system is soaked with alcohol; it mutates the neurological transmissions. During its absorption in the bodily system the subject is unable to learn properly or have the cognition to understand what they are doing on a normal level. If they drink alcohol in school, it becomes impossible to learn. The blood in the body system is affected in a way that the cells or molecular system is affected, so when the neurological system goes into firing mode the transmissions are altered that they are firing off abnormal sequences and the responses or reactions in the body are also fired off in an impaired fashion. Chemicals are produced with miss-fired or altered states in the molecular structure and the effects can be devastating. An example of how much alcohol could affect your molecular system is if the victim or subject was an alcoholic pregnant woman the fetus would be a product of the alcohol in its molecular structure and it could cause facial malformations, retardation, developmental disabilities, and malformed infants. Alcohol affects all the tissues and molecular structure in the body.
