‘Beer goggles’ are a myth

Ever felt one too many drinks have fooled you into thinking someone is better looking than they are?

Well, you wouldn’t be alone… but you would be wrong, it is claimed.

‘Beer goggles’ are a myth because we see each other no differently regardless of how much alcohol we have had.

The part of the brain controlling sexual urges keeps going no matter how much we have drunk.

It means our ability to assess someone’s attractiveness stays the same – until we pass out, that is.

Beer Goggles

‘We still see others basically as they are,’ said Dr Amanda Ellison, who conducted the study.

‘There is no imagined physical transformation – just more desire.’

‘Alcohol switches off the rational and decision-making areas of the brain while leaving the areas to do with sexual desire relatively intact.’

Dr Ellison says it is a fluke of nature that the lust section of the brain – the oldest part – still functions in the face of booze.

Her findings go against previous studies which have suggested people appear more attractive to others after they have had a drink.
