Mixing Alcohol With Energy Drinks Could Lead To Casual Sex
In this not-so-shocking scientific study, Researchers at University at Buffalo's Research Institute on Addictions in New York state found that people who mix energy drinks with booze are more likely to have casual, risky sex. (Guys, you should be taking notes!)
"Mixing energy drinks with alcohol can lead to unintentional over-drinking, because the caffeine makes it harder to assess your own level of intoxication," said Kathleen E. Miller, the author of the study. "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."
Casual or intoxicated sex can increase the risk of unwanted outcomes, such as unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, sexual assault and depression, Miller said.
And while we are the subject of not so shocking alcohol/sex related revelations: Hookers cost money, booze will increase your chance of nailing a fatty and if you have relations with any member of Motley Crue the chances of getting an STD skyrocket by 10,000 percent.
