I’m glad scientists are spending all their time researching sex and not inventing jetpacks and rocketing to Mars and curing cancer and shit. Sex dudes, it’s complicated shit and it’s on our minds all the time but science-bros are in labs doing experiments and firing lasers and mixing up chemicals to work it all out.
Figuring out fuck and relationships and what goes on in the screwed up brains of men and women is complicated and today’s Peeperz sexy science news is a good example of researchers discovering a mix of of obvious and what-the-fuck. Psychologists at France’s Pierre-Mendes France University did some experiments and found out that drinking booze makes one think they’re more attractive…okay we all knew that. The drunker they got their test subjects (a mix of guys and gals) the more attractive and sexy they rated themselves.
The wtf-part came in the second study they did, they gave 94 men (only men this time) some cocktails half of which had no booze and half of which had lots and they told the guys that some of the drinks were alcoholic and some were virgin but they didn’t say which was which. Then, when it was time to rate their own hotness, the guys rated them selves higher if they thought their cocktails were the boozy ones, even if it was a liquor free drink! And the men who got a drink they suspected might have no alcohol in it rated themselves as less attractive, even if there was actually booze in the cocktail they drank!!
Got that, so both drinking, and thinking that you’re drinking, ups your self confidence and how supersexyhot you feel.
Sounds like it’s a good reason for me to crack open my 5pm forty.
