It’s official: A new research claims alcohol makes you more attractive to the opposite s3x. Scientists at the University of Bristol found that having ‘one large glass of wine’ increases ‘facial flushing’ and ‘confidence’, making the drinker ‘more attractive’ to others and more likely to ‘get lucky’.
Researchers quizzed 40 heterosexual male and female students and asked them to rate the attractiveness of three groups of people who were sober, tipsy and drunk.
The study found that tipsy people, who had downed one large 250ml glass of 14 per cent wine – that’s one-third of the bottle – were consistently voted as the ‘most attractive’.
Sober subjects and those who had ‘had a few too many’ were rated as far less attractive than a ‘tipsy’ subject.The study states:
‘In addition to perceiving others as more attractive, an alcohol consumer may also be perceived by others as more attractive, and therefore receive greater sexual interest from potential mates.An increase in such attention from others may also positively reinforce alcohol consumption, particularly in social contexts.’
