No Such Thing As Beer Goggles

No Such Thing As Beer Goggle Says Study

Beer goggles are the age-old get-out clause for justifying a romantic encounter with someone who inexplicably turned ugly in the few hours after you left the pub.
But is a kangaroo court of friends right to accept the phenomena as a defence? Er, sorry lads, no - drinking alcohol apparently makes men find women less attractive.

The demon drink also makes no difference to a man's ability to guess a woman's age, research found.

'This study seemingly flies in the face of the commonly held notion of beer goggles,' said psychologist Dr Vincent Egan.

To test the effect of alcohol, Dr Egan's team showed pictures of a 17-year-old girl - some digitally aged or enhanced by make-up - to dozens of people in pubs and bars. Half had consumed alcohol and were given a rating between 'relaxed and benign' and 'unambiguously drunk', while the other half were sober.

All were asked to comment on the age and attractiveness of the girl in the photos.

The drunk volunteers rated all the girls less good-looking than did the sober volunteers. Alcohol also reduced a women's ability to guess age but not men's.

'Alcohol had no effect on the age perceptions of males viewing female faces, suggesting male mate preferences are not easily disrupted,' said Dr Egan, of Leicester University.

It also suggested drunkenness should not be an excuse if a man is accused of having sex with a minor, he added.
So all those who have used this excuse in the past - what's your excuse now?


I'm trying to think of mine right now - I was sure she was a looker, honest.

What! No-one EVER said that alcohol makes someone look attractive.. Being pished just means you're happier to bag up with a minger. Everyone knows that!

All alcohol does is lowers one's standards. A munter is still a munter.

Read the BBC report instead - it doesn't completely miss the point of the study like this one does. All the study did was decide that beer goggles don't stop you judging age (and in fact said we overestimate regardless off pishedness). It doesn't mention anything about attractiveness - and we all know that Ace's point above is spot on there - just that "I was arrseholed and figured she was 18 yeronner" is becoming a less stable defence.

The thread title should be alluding to a different kind of excuse, of which my favourite would be "she's drinking in a bar, tarted up to f*ck with a multipack of johnnies in her handbag, m'lud - WTF was I supposed to assume?"

I think what explains the situation is that we do absolutely ridiculous, sometimes dangerous things when we're batfaced. Doing the business with a complete munter being only one of them. I can't recall whether the any of the mingers I've plugged were any better looking just cos I was pished, but I do remember being at a party when a huge fat ugly crocodillapig latched onto me and practically dragged me upstairs. When we got to her bed I can recall thinking to myself, oh well, any hole's a goal and just got on with it. In the morning, when I woke up and saw where I was, and who I was with, I screamed and ran naked out of the room clutching my clothes.
The point being, had I been sober there was absolutely no way on earth that I would of considered humping her, but the alcohol clouds our judgement and changes certain normal restrictions on our actions, thank fuck, we'd never have any fun if it wasn't for the demon drink.

To sum it up: When drunk you know what you're doing; you just can't stop yourself ;)

What the booze does is make the blokes think they are more attractive - that's why they feel confident enough to describe a "five" as hideous, when they are a minging "three". :)

Just roll off the munter and smile happy in the knowledge that a shiite fcuk is still better than a good w@nk. Take a snap of the her with your phone, for evidence, standing well back for the wide angle if required, wash your c0ck in her sink then leave. Job done.

Besides - describe your worst blowjob.........FANTASTIC! And you can't do it yourself!

What leads you to that extremely inaccurate decision, may I be permitted to enquire.

She was really really horrid, I'll never ever forget the night, but at least the nightmares stopped.
