Was James Bond An Impotent Drunk?

According to a study by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) James Bond’s lifestyle as a Martini-loving ladies man would have landed him six-feet-under by his mid-50s. Wine-searcher.com breaks down the study, which suggests that hen would have died from an alcohol or tobacco-related disease, and goes further to explode the notion that Bond would’ve been the ladies man he’s famously portrayed as. According to the study, “The level of function as displayed in the books is inconsistent with the physical, mental and indeed sexual functioning expected from someone drinking this much alcohol.” BMJ also impressively tallies up every sip Bond takes in 12 of Ian Fleming’s 14 Bond novels, determining that the only time he wasn’t drinking was when he was either hospitalized or incarcerated.
