One of Tiger Woods’ paramours is claiming the two of them took Ambien before sex because, "You know you have crazier sex on Ambien. You get into that Ambien haze." My husband and I have a bottle of Ambien, and while I’ve heard of the dangers of Ambien sex, I also know that anyone’s marriage could use improvement, so we considered being inspired by Tiger. But we realized this is what would happen: We would pop our pills, get into bed, and he would say to me, "Hey, baby, you are turning me zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz." At least in the morning we would be very well rested.
