Scientists Prove Beer Googles Are For Real!

Beer Goggles Make You Sexy

Matthias Liechti, an eminent Scientist from Basel University Hospital in Switzerland, obviously had nothing better to with his research grant money and decided it could be best spent getting people drunk and seeing if they were more likely to root a fugly if they were half tanked instead of sober.

After plying the research group with beer, they found that “beer goggles” do indeed take effect and that the inhibitions surrounding sex were lowered.

Well fuck me, if they didn’t figure out something we’ve all known for years — especially at 3am when the “ugly lights” come on due to the bar closing and you’re still happy to go home with someone you wouldn’t even give a second glance to sober.

The bed news from the study however was that the level of sexual arousal didn’t go up as well i.e if someone’s not horny when they start drinking, they’re not going to be at the end either.

And as guys know, “brewers droop” is a well know and researched side effect of drinking too much.

One caveat on the study was that being a miserable, depressed asshole doesn’t suddenly make you more attractive to the opposite sex — unless you’re a goth — people are still more attracted to friendly, smiling people.

“We found that drinking a glass of beer helps people see happy faces faster, and enhances concern for positive emotional situations,” professor Liechti stated.

So who wins out from beer googles?

Turns out it’s the guys as women are more affected by it than them — they’re more likely to think you’re attractive and therefore more open to getting laid.

According to Professor Wim van den Brink, from the University of Amsterdam, this is due to “differences in blood alcohol concentration between males and females with the same alcohol intake, differences in tolerance due to differences in previous levels of alcohol consumption or by socio-cultural factors.”

So the long and the short of it is that these Scientists have proven what we’ve know for ever — getting pissed is a great way to getting meeting the opposite sex!

If you want to send me $500,000 to continue this no-brainer research I’ll happily expand on the study and add my own conclusions — from the local nightclub!
