Yup, a study has surfaced that shows that the drunker a guy gets, the sexier he thinks he is. And after reading the results of this study, I have to say, it all makes perfect sense.

Although we all know that men tend to think about sex more frequently than women do (one in 20 think about sex once a minute—wow!), a new survey of 5,000 people shows that women may be substituting those hot and bothered thoughts with worries about what they're eating. The British survey found that 25 percent of women think about food every 30 minutes, while only 10 percent report thinking about sex that often.
When we're living our best lives, it's easier for others to fall in love with us, or to feel happier with the life they're sharing with us. But how do you know how to find that ideal, authentic version of yourself? We asked three experts to share their tips. Here, YourTango Experts provide practical advice on making peace with your looks.
Physical appearance will always be a hot topic. It's the first thing we notice when evaluating a potential match, or anyone for that matter. We all know that these days the somewhat stereotypical ideal body type is that of a super-slim celeb. We snap up gym memberships, try tons of fad diets and take weight loss supplements to obtain that amazing physique. It's pretty indisputable; for most of us, appearance is important. At least to a certain extent. We had to wonder, though. Exactly how much does weight matter in the dating game? We took to our Facebook page to ask YourTango users their thoughts on this question: "When it comes to dating, does weight matter?"
Love a strong jawline on a man? Researchers at the University of New South Wales recently found that we're not just looking for signs of virility—we're looking for a badass. A new study shows that a poor, dangerous environment makes bad boy, masculine men attractive. Is this why Denise Richards is dating Nikki Sixx, another in a long slew of bad boys?
Bad news, ladies. Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics, says that handsome men are a dying breed. According to research collected over a 53-year period, beautiful people are more likely to bear daughters, so as women populate the earth, the likelihood that the pretty ones will pass on their "attractiveness" genes to sons decreases.
Should you stick to singles who are as attractive as you for dating success? Some dating websites think so. A couple who met on an ugly person's dating site recently got married. We wonder: are ugly and beautiful dating sites a good or bad idea?
If you're like most women you probably hold back during sex sometimes because you aren't 100 percent confident about the way your body looks. If you're the type who switches off the light and dives under the covers before your husband can see you, then you may be missing out. When you spend time worrying about what body parts may be too soft, too jiggly or just plain ol' too big, you end up ruining your own good time (and his).
You're getting ready for brunch with your guy: what do you put on to wow him? If you're reaching for your favorite thigh-grazing minidress, you might be surprised to find out he'd rather see you in swears. UK fashion sites My Celebrity Style recently polled 1,125 guys about women's fashion, asking them what they love and what they hate about our closets. Here are some of their surprising answers.
The New York Times recently featured a study of 6,000 Australian women that revealed significant weight gain after marrying or even moving in with a significant other. Keeping our waistlines while cohabiting in domestic bliss comes down to being vigilant with how we eat. And, perhaps we could all aim to be a little sportier with our significant others. Go bike riding, take up a class at the gym, train for a marathon, play kickball or the Wii, even. Or if you really aren't the sweat-in-public type, at the very least you could aim to have more athletic sex.
Five-thousand members on BeautifulPeople.com woke up one morning to find their accounts were inactivated due to their holiday weight gain. We registered on the site to see if the members are really as stunning as the site claims they are. The results were surprising.
