Beer Goggles is How I Dated in My Early 20s
Beer goggles are great for everyone. Pound some brew, throw your restrictions out the window, and have a good time. Ask anyone who has ever drank and they’ll confirm beer goggles are real. Not even just the part about making others more attractive. Booze makes you happier in general. But just to make sure there is no debate, science went out and proved it to be true.
From NY Daily News:
Researchers from the University Hospital of Basel tested 60 healthy men and women who drank alcoholic or non-alcoholic beer. The team tested what effect brews have on empathy, sexual arousal and face recognition — and it turns out, the hop drinkers got happier. They showed a greater desire to be with others than their straight-edge counterparts after just one pint, and they also recognized happy faces more quickly.
Beer goggles also made people — and especially women — less shy about sex. Both groups were shown sexually explicit images, and the more socially-lubricated sippers rated them as more pleasant than the subjects who didn’t get their drink on. The team suggested booze hits gals harder because they generally have a greater blood-alcohol concentration than guys do after chugging the same amount.
So now when you tell someone to loosen up and have a drink, you can tell that science said so.
What are your thoughts on this readers? We’d love to hear a few stories about the time you slipped the beer goggles on.
