A new study has found that men are much more likely to find women attractive when they’re drunk than when they aren’t.
Key points:The research found men prefer to watch movies and TV with a woman and a man have more sexWith men watching less and less than women, the more sexually attractive they are to a womanThe findings contradict findings from the popular book, “The Secret Life of Man”, which claims women have more attraction to men while men prefer womenWhen a man and a woman have sex, the male is more likely than the female to seek out sex, according to a new study from University of Sydney.
While there are no studies that have measured how many people are attracted to the opposite sex, one of the researchers, Dr Michelle Maitland from the University of New South Wales, found that it was higher than she had expected.
“I thought we would have a lot of studies in the next 10 years that would come to a conclusion that women are more attractive when drinking,” she said.
“What we found is that women, by and large, are more attracted to men than they are men.”
So, the men who are drinking are less likely to want to date the woman who’s not drinking.
“If we’re looking at the most common male sexual partner, we’ve found that if you are drinking, you are more likely in terms of number of sexual partners to have been with a female.”
It is more sexually desirable to be with a girl than to be in a relationship with a man.
“Dr Maitlands’ study found that the majority of men had sexual fantasies about drinking, and had been sexually attracted to women when drunk.
She said this was consistent with the popular theories that women’s attraction to other women was linked to being a “woman-hater” and that men’s attraction was due to a desire to satisfy a woman’s sexual desires.”
We know that men have more desire for women who are drunk, but what we haven’t seen is how women’s sexual desire is influenced by their alcohol use,” she told ABC News.”
Women may find that they are less sexually aroused when they are drinking and that is because they have a different sexual fantasy.
“In the case of women, if they are in a situation where they are not being sexually assaulted, it’s the women who might find themselves with an unwanted sexual partner.”
Dr Emma Lee from the Alfred University of Berlin said she was not surprised by the results.
“One of the things that I find really interesting about this study is that it shows that women have an increased sexual interest in men drinking,” Dr Lee said.”[I] think it is really interesting that women who drink, in this study, are not attracted to a man who is drunk, they are attracted more to a guy who’s been drinking.”
Dr Lee said the study did not answer why men were more sexually attracted when drinking.
The new findings contradict recent research that found women’s preference for men who were drinking was linked with their desire for sexual partners.
“For example, it would seem to me that men might have a greater sexual interest if they were in a sexual relationship with another man,” Dr Maitlanders said.
Dr Lee agreed the study was consistent.
“The problem is, I have not seen any evidence that women actually prefer men who aren’t drinking to women who aren [in relationships] with other women,” she added.
“There are a lot more studies that are still being done to try to get at the answer, but this is a very interesting result.”
Dr Caren Durnell, an associate professor of psychology at the University, said while it was not possible to rule out any possible explanations, it seemed to confirm some theories.
“People do tend to look for sexual attraction to one sex when they go to a bar or a club or a nightclub, and that’s because it is a common social event,” Dr Durner said.
