Drunk straight guys? I’ll pass
In recent days, a study has been bandied about that explores the willingness of drunk straight hooking up with other men. Perhaps you’ve seen this line of research? It first appeared on VICE and then made its way around gaydom.
In case you missed it, here’s the actual study that was published in the Journal of Social Psychology.
To make a long story short, the research suggests that the more straight guys drink, the more inclined they are to get it on with other dudes.
Check out this direct quote from the authors' of the study:
“Most notably, alcohol intake was related to increased sexual willingness of men with a same-sex partner, suggesting a potential shift in normative casual sexual behavior among heterosexual men.”
Drunk Straight Guys
Putting aside the fact this research speaks to the cultural phenomenon of “beer goggles” (the drunker you get, the hotter another becomes) you really have to ask yourself if hooking up with a drunk straight guy is such a great idea?
Not to rain on anyone’s parade but if the dude is intoxicated, even just a little, he is – by definition – impaired. In other words, that individual’s ability to make sound, healthy judgments isn’t at full capacity. Who wants to mess around with that?
Plus, some believe this kind of sex to be a form of sexual assault.
Second – and this is the part that’s not so sexy – drunk sex is nasty, regardless if the dude is straight or gay!
I should know because I’ve engaged in it plenty of times. It’s nothing but an exercise in disgustingness.
Have you ever hooked up with someone hammered? How about trying to get your mojo on when you are tipsy? Was it fun? Do you even remember it? I’m going to go out on a limb and say no.
Drunk sex really that great?
Let’s do a quick review of the cons.
First, as far as the other guy goes, there’s a GOOD chance he can’t get it up. Not even a little. The alcohol and brain chemicals cause wires to cross, creating a wet, limp noodle.
I’m not just saying that. Check out the research on how alcohol can be bad for your sex life!
Second, drunk kissing stinks! It’s sloppy, toothy and not very satisfying. Plus, the stank of alcohol fermenting in his belly and coming up through belching tastes vile.
And Lord help you if the guy smokes when he drinks. That makes for a mouthful of gross!
Finally, other forms of sex when a dude has been drinking aren’t very memorable. Ever try to bottom drunk? What about topping? How did that go for you?
In closing, I’ll just say that chasing after drunk guys (straight or gay) really isn’t a good idea.
In my experience, you are far better off with a willing, fully alert man that isn’t drunk.
You’ll be much happier 🙂
