Want More Casual Sex? Mix Alcohol With Your Energy Drink
A scientist at the University at Buffalo's Research Institute on Addictions in New York state says, in a new report, that drinking alcohol mixed with energy drinks can lead to more casual sex!
The reason, says Kathleen Miller, is because:
Mixing energy drinks with alcohol can lead to unintentional over-drinking, because the caffeine makes it harder to assess your own level of intoxication. Alcohol mixed with energy drinks have stronger priming effects than alcohol alone. In other words, they increase the craving for another drink, so that you end up drinking more overall."
The study was apparently done with college-age adults, so I personally doubt that the mixing of alcohol and energy drinks had anything to do with it. I think it was probably just the mixing of college-age adults and alcohol - period! One thing that is good to note from this study, in my opinion, is the fact that the caffeine in the energy drinks can make it harder for you to assess your level of intoxication.
Drink responsibly people!
