Dr Amanda Ellison from the psychology department of Durham University has revealed that by a “fluke of nature” alcohol switches off the rational and decision making areas of the brain, while leaving the area responsible for lust and sexual urges intact.
Research by Bristol University claimed that people appear more attractive by both sexes after they have had a drink, reported by The Telegraph.
However, in the recent studies Dr Ellison revealed that after “as little as half a pint of beer alcohol starts bonding with the receptors of the upper lobes which control decision making”, while the “more primitive section of the brain which governs sex drive is carrying on unaffected”.
“We still see others basically as they are” said Dr Ellison in a report by Metro.com. “There is no imagined physical transformation – just more desire”.
