What is it about women and booze?
I’ve been on a zero alcohol rule for about five months straight – something I do every now and again to clear my mind. I’m not much of a hard liquor kind of guy, although thanks to my time in Moscow, I can appreciate ice cold vodka straight followed up with a zakuska. What I do enjoy is a glass of good wine, whether it be Spanish or French red, or Austrian white.
In any case, enough stress at work these days (too much work rather than too little), I decided it’s time to sleep a little deeper – and to apply the traditional homeopathic recipe, good wine.
Leaving the booze and getting back to the women, for some reason I always find that one has more and hotter women in one’s bed when drinking. A teetotal man diminishes his chances of an exciting night or even acquiring a girlfriend by about factor of about four or more.
Happily enough my current girlfriend isn’t much of a drinker so life without booze hasn’t bad to me this round. But now that I’ve gone back to opening a good bottle of wine in the middle of the evening or over dinner, a little surprise was waiting for me.
Even the most conservative women seem to expand their sexual horizons radically when watered with good wine.
So the deal with booze for women seems to be that it
- disinhibits them physically
- lets them drift into the lovemaking with more feeling
- gives them a psychological get out of jail free card
The psychological get out of jail free card is perhaps the most important one. "I did that?," she asks incredulous. "I must have been drunk."
Or in the case of a casual fling. The friend asks "Did you sleep with him?"
Answer: "Yes, but I was drunk."
Friend: "Ah that makes sense."
Well maybe to women it makes sense. Otherwise I’m not sure. Who on earth wants to sleep with people drunk with whom one wouldn’t want to sleep sober?
