Sex and Beer

I recently wrote an article discussing sex and dating, asking the question, Sex, too early?  It addressed a suggested sociological/economic approach to sex: surmising sex too early (such as first date sex) reduces the social cost of sex; therefore, drastically changing courtship and reducing the need for marriage.  The authors recommended holding out on sex to secure a marital partner. 

 This idea, I refuted, of course. 

Sounds ‘old school’ to me and the only ‘old school’ I prefer is rap.

So why write about it again and mention beer? 

Because you may be one who feels there are occasions when first date sex fits and is right for you and your date.

If you have the interest and desire to have sex that first night, how might you determine if your female partner will be open and receptive?

According to recent research, if you want to know if she’s likely to sleep with you on the first date, just ask “Do you like Beer?”.

 OKTrends statistics states,  people who say they like the taste of beer are far more likely to be open to sex on the first date.

“No matter their gender or orientation, beer-lovers are 60 percent more likely to be OK with sleeping with someone they’ve just met,” OkCupid said in its blog poston the topic.

For women, OkCupid said the beer question was the only one with a meaningful correlation to first-date sex, but for men they found a few other key questions.

Asking, “In a certain light, wouldn’t nuclear war be exciting?” implied an 83 percent chance of first-date sex.

Two other questions — “Could you imagine yourself killing someone?” and “Assuming you were in the position to do so, would you launch nuclear weapons under any circumstances?” — both implied an 82 percent chance of sex on the first date.


This research  looks at just your mere liking of beer, not consumption and change in judgement (aka ‘beer googles’),  or how drinking lowers our inhibitions, nor our tendencies to make choices we typically would not make while sober and the like.
Just by enjoying the taste of beer makes us more sexually open.
Cheers to Sex and Beer.
You decide if: 1) you like beer 2) you are open to first date sex  then make it SMART, SAFE, and FUN.
