About Me

I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Beer Goggles: How Alcohol Makes Ugly Attractive

We all know alcohol can change the way you look at that certain someone from across the bar. Find out why.

Everyone looks better after you’ve tipped back a pint or two, and now we may know why.

It turns out that alcohol dulls our ability to recognize cockeyed, asymmetrical faces, according to researchers who tested the idea on both sober and inebriated college students in England.

“We tend to prefer faces that are symmetrical,” explained Lewis Halsey of Roehampton University in London. That’s well established by previous research, he said. Read more

How Beer Goggles Make the Opposite Sex More Attractive

Researchers at Kyungwoon University in Korea report that alcohol makes the opposite sex more attractive because it blurs our vision. Does that means nearsighted people would get the same effect by not wearing their glasses or contact lenses? Somehow I doubt it. I think the impaired judgment caused by alcohol is the major factor. What do you think?

What is it that makes members of the opposite sex more attractive to people under the influence of alcohol? Is it just impaired judgement? A team of researchers led by Cho Hyun-gug, a professor of visual optics at Kyungwoon University, say the reason is that alcohol consumption decreases vision and makes faces appear less clear.

"Beer Goggles" Last Longer for Women Than Men

For men, “beer goggles” wear off as quickly as the alcohol, but in women, the effect lasts much longer, a new study has revealed. This sounds like a good reason for us women to quit drinking.

Researchers found that women who drink even moderately develop a reduced ability to rate attractiveness in male faces, even when they are sober.

Those who drank were less able to detect male facial symmetry, a marker of attractiveness and good genes which is thought to play an important role in the choice of a partner. Read more

New Study Proves That "Beer Goggles" Are Real

“Beer goggles” are real, say scientists. People really do look better when you drink, and it’s not just the opposite sex that looks more attractive.

For the first time, scientists have proven that “beer goggles” are real – other people really do look more attractive to us if we have been drinking.

Surprisingly, the beer goggles effect was not limited to just the opposite sex among the ostensibly straight volunteers recruited for the study – they also rated people from their own sex as more attractive. Read more
