Here’s some good news you definitely want to hear in the lead up to the silly season: drinking gin makes you feel sexier.
And that’s not just a conclusion we’ve made while sipping on one too many G&T’s, but findings of a new study published in the British Medical Journal Open.
Researchers examined the responses of 30,000 people from across 21 countries, who were asked about feeling energised, relaxed, sexy, confident, tired, aggressive, ill, restless and tearful while drinking.
More than half of respondents related spirits (including gin, whiskey, vodka) to feelings of confidence, while four out of ten associated them with feeling sexy. We could have told you that.
But there’s also a dark side, with spirits being blamed for feelings of aggression, depression and tearfulness.
