Don't drink this when you're alone

Today's OMG research into the obvious:

If you drink a Red Bull, then polish off half a handle of Captain Morgan, you're more likely to have casual sex.

That's according to a new study from University at Buffalo's Research Institute on Addictions which took a look at the link between sexual activity, alcohol use and energy drinks (or AmED).

"Mixing energy drinks with alcohol can lead to unintentional overdrinking because the caffeine makes it harder to assess your own level of intoxication," Kathleen E. Miller, senior research scientist at UB's RIA and author of the study, said in a release. "AmEDs have stronger priming effects than alcohol alone. In other words, they increase the craving for another drink, so that you end up drinking more overall."

Let's see, with alcohol, you lose your inhibitions, but throw in an energy drink and you're super alert. Nah, can't see it.
