BOOZE SORRY NOW? Boffins say women suffer more from beer goggles
GREAT news fellas!
Boffins have found that women are more likely to suffer with ‘beer goggles’ than men!
A study of volunteers from Roehampton University found that boozing reduces ability to assess facial symmetry – and the more symmetrical a face is, the better looking the person.
But female drinkers were less able to distinguish between attractive and not so attractive after just a couple of vodkas.
Tests included studying images of faces that had been manipulated so that one was symmetrical and the other wasn’t.
Women made more errors when asked to pick between the two.
Dr Lewis Halsey, who led the study, said: “What we have shown is that people’s ability to detect symmetry is part of the explanation for the beer goggle effect.
“The consequences could be considerable.
“A lot of people said they met their partner when they were drunk!”
