Shocking Study: Beer Goggles Don't Make People Look Better . . . They Just Make You Not Care
According to a study by the University of Durham, beer goggles don't work quite the way that you might have imagined.
Drinking alcohol doesn't exactly make other people SEEM more attractive to us. When we're drunk, we still see people just as attractive or unattractive as we do when we're sober.
But alcohol DOES switch off the part of our brain that handles impulse control. That means we don't have a little voice telling us that doing certain things might be a bad idea.
But alcohol DOESN'T shut off the part of our brain responsible for sexual desire. So beer goggles don't make unattractive people look better . . . they just make us not CARE how they look. Did we really need a scientific study to tell us all this?
