Have you ever heard the saying, “What is the difference between a gay man and a straight man?” The answer, they say, is: “six beers.”
Do you agree?
Well, it appears the saying has a grain of truth in it. At least according to this study conducted in the Midwestern United States by Breanne R. Helmers, Colin Harbke, and Julie C. Herbstrith. Published in The Journal of Social Psychology, the study is titled, “Sexual Willingness with Same- and Other-Sex Prospective Partners: Experimental Evidence from the Bar Scene.”
The researchers reportedly conducted the study outside of bars where they examined 83 straight male and female respondents and measured their “sexual willingness with a same- or other-sex partner.” How? By making the participants watch a randomly assigned 40-second video clip of attractive people—a male and a female—and then asking them if they’d buy the person a drink or maybe have sex with them. The researchers of course, took into account the amount of alcohol the respondents has had by asking them to take the breathalyzer test beforehand as well.
Results of the study showed that the level of alcohol intake is related to women’s sexual interest for both men and women. As the women’s alcohol intake increases, so did their sexual interest for both genders but the more sober they were, the lesser the interest is as well.
Men on the other hand, expressed willingness to have sex with attractive women regardless of the amount of alcohol they consumed. However, as their alcohol intake increases, so did their interest to have sex with the attractive guy in the video especially those who had over 10 drinks. The study however, stressed that the respondents’ sexual willingness is influenced both by their “alcohol intake and the perceived attractiveness of a same-sex prospective partner.” The researcher concluded that the result suggested a “potential shift in normative casual sexual behavior among heterosexual men.”
Anyway, what do you think about the results of the study guys? Do you agree with the aforementioned saying above regarding the difference between a gay and a straight man? Have you ever slept with an inebriated straight guy before? How did that go for you?
