Study: Beer Drinkers Are More Likely To Have Sex On The First Date
World

A dating website found a simple way to weed out the one-night stands from the potential mates. If your dates like beer, it may mean that they’re more willing to have sex early in the relationship. But if your dates enjoy horror films or want to live on a boat, they may be interested in a long-term relationship.

The statistics revealed that those who drink beer are 60 percent more likely to sleep with someone early in relationships. According to Harvard graduate Christian Rudder, who founded OKCupid, the idea applies to both gay and straight people.

Rudder analysed the profiles and interactions of hundreds of millions of users and pinpointed three questions that could best predict whether couples would have a long-term relationship.

Rudder found that these three questions could predict compatibility more than questions about someone’s views on sex, smoking, or God.

  1. Wouldn’t it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?
  2. Do you like horror movies?
  3. Have you ever travelled around another country alone?

Rudder also explored how a woman’s description of her body relates to her self-confidence and sex drive.

He found that a woman’s sex drive rises until her late 30s, then drops. He also found that a woman’s self-confidence increases with age.

Rudder discovered that women who described themselves as “curvy” were more interested in sex, while women who said they were “skinny” were more interested in a relationship and had less self-confidence.

Rudder’s blog also contained graphs that showed that women who do not like exercise are twice as likely to have trouble achieving orgasms than women who do like exercise; frequent tweeters have shorter life relationships than everyone else; and people living in richer areas are more likely to want casual sex.
