Can you believe that someone actually got funding for a study showing that the "beer goggle" effect really exists? I also can't believe that there is actually a journal call Alcohol. Well, there is and one study they published states that being drunk "diminishes a guy’s ability to detect facial symmetry, a crucial component of what we think of as human beauty. When this sense is dulled, an average-looking face may seem like it belongs to a hottie". The others study "shows liquor makes guys more likely to misinterpret a friendly female glance as a bold come-on". You can read more about the studies here but I think all their conclusions are kind of intuitive. I even remember, in college, guys ranking girls on how many beers it would take them to, well, have sex with some of them wholooked less desirable (I am being nice here). I also had a ranking system but it was just the opposite. Not being a looker myself, my scale would be an estimation of how many beers a woman would would have to drink before she would consider having sex with me. Let's just say it was usually more than eight or nine and it was rarely reached.
