Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes (October 16, 2002)

The more you drink, the more you attractive members of the opposite sex become. Well, that's what Professor Barry Jones of the psychology department at Glasgow University says. He's just concluded an exhaustive study on the subject. Students at his university were asked to rate a series of photographs of 120 male and female students at another university. They were to rate them 1 to 7 with the highest number being the most attractive.

The participants in the study were divided into two groups; one half had consumed 4 units of alcohol, the other half abstained.

No real surprise in the outcome: those students who drank alcohol found the faces of the opposite sex 2 per cent more attractive than the abstaining group.

According to Professor Jones alcohol stimulates a specific area of the brain, the nucleus accumbens, that determines facial attractiveness.
