According to a recent study, college students (and, by extension, possibly the rest of us) are more likely to hook up with people casually if we’ve been drinking alcohol mixed with caffeine than if we’ve just been drinking alcohol alone.
The study comes to us courtesy of addiction researcher Kathleen Miller, who published it in the recent Journal of Caffeine Research. It found that people who had beverages like, say, redbull-vodkas or jagerbombs had a higher chance of not knowing or caring about their last sexual partner, and of being high or drunk the last time they hooked up.
It’s not exactly clear why this is the case, but it does make me wonder: do you drink these kinds of beverages?
I get that the study isn’t about what you drink but how you act when you drink what you drink, but it just kind of makes my stomach turn to think about drinking a Redbull at all, let alone one that’s been mixed with vodka.
What about you?
