Sex, Alcohol, and Body Image

In today's Daily Mail, there's an intriguing article, One in 20 Women Has NEVER Had Sex Sober as They Lack Body Confidence. But that's not the most interesting factoid in the piece...

Almost half of those questioned said they preferred sex while under the influence of alcohol because it helped them to lose their inhibitions and be more adventurous...

The average woman has slept with eight men, but was drunk with at least five of them.

On two of these occasions they couldn't even remember the man's name the next day.

Four out of ten have 'always' been a bit tipsy when they have slept with a partner for the first time.
But astonishingly 48.5 per cent said they preferred sex while under the influence.

The study also found that 75 per cent of women said they liked to drink before getting into bed with their husband or boyfriend. Some 6 per cent of women have never had sex while sober.

More than half of women polled claimed drinking with a prospective partner was 'part of the dating process' so they were bound to be a bit drunk when they had sex.

It was also revealed 14 per cent of women in a relationship can't face sleeping with their partner unless they had a couple of glasses of wine beforehand.

All very fascinating. But I'm not sure what any of it has to do with "body confidence." It just seems like stupidity to me.

Welmer accurately describes the moral standing of Social Cons relative to PUAs :

“So when I criticize social conservatives, I’m not thinking of good, religious people, but rather those hypocrites and liars who hide their base instincts in a cloak of righteousness. They are the Pharisees of today; the kinds of people who mask their avarice and lust with legal constructs and false piety. The PUA, who openly declares what he is doing and honestly explains why is morally of a far higher stature from my point of view.”

Ummm, I have no idea what you're talking about, although, if I DID know, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't agree with it.
