Little did Betty know she was wasting her time going to the pub

I knew it, I knew it…the difference between a dog and a fox isn’t 5 drinks… it’s a myth, people. Beer goggles it seems has the opposite affect on men. Yep, that’s right ladies you become  less attractive in the eyes of males after a few ales. A group of scientists asked 240 men and women in bars and cafes to have a look at a series of photographs of women and comment on their age and attractiveness. Half the group studied had been drinking when photo’s were shown. Hmm, but interestingly, alcohol reduced the females ability to guess the age of the women in the photos, but not the men. It also appears those who were drinking alcohol  rated all the women in the photos as less attractive than those who hadn’t been drinking. So I guess you have no excuses boys for having to bite your arm off in the morning !

Psst If you don’t believe the beer goggle theory, read the article from the Telegraph.
