Drunken sex risks of young.

BOOZY youngsters admit sleeping around and cheating on their partners after drinking too much.

A fifth of 18 to 24-year-olds have reckless sex - because they are too drunk to care, says the Government's Know Your Limits study.

Two thirds of the 4,500 quizzed said they have no will power with booze and only three in 10 can limit their drinking.

Almost half the men could not remember what they had done, one in four vomited in public and a fifth urinated in the street.

More than half said excess drinking had ruined a night out or a family celebration.

Drinks counsellor Suzie Hayman said: "Alcohol messes with your senses, leaving you more vulnerable to accident or attack.

"Take it a little easier and you won't ruin your night or your life."
