Why Does Alcohol Make Us Want To Take Our Clothes Off?

Getting drunk makes people act overall retarded, from slurring their speech, picking fights for no actual reason, dancing like an epileptic or walking sideways (to be fair, most people can’t dance for shit, and if you’re a woman, high heels make even the very basic act of walking a challenge). People also flirt to the point that makes you forget there is such a thing as subtlety or play tongue wars with a random you just met.

However, if you’ve had enough grog, the clothes on your back somehow become too heavy to carry or are an irritant to the skin, so we start getting naked. But why is do we have the notion to take our clothes off when drunk? You could simply dismiss it as drunken stupidity, but there’s actually quite a few reasons why we become wannabe nudists.

1. Alcohol lowers peoples inhibitions
This one’s a no-brainer, almost literately, as alcohol does hinder our brain cells to work properly. But this isn’t something to be underestimated just because it’s common knowledge. People will do just about anything they think is a great idea, though in reality it’s a terrible idea, such as getting starkers.

2. Drinking games
Besides the fact it’s simply “the rules” of many drinking games to strip, it’s also a challenge to see who’s not only the best drinker, but to see who’s brave enough to get their kit off in front of everyone. This is usually followed by stupid chants and uproar from the other participants in how hilarious they think it is. In its defense, it’s a great way to hook up if someone you’re keen on is playing too, as they get to see you, and hopefully you see them, in all their glory.

3. Drunk peep really wants sex
Again, alcohol lowers peoples inhibitions enough to get naked, and what’s the major reason they get naked (besides changing clothes)? Sex! Yes, your primitive urges to mate rears its ugly head after drinks. Peeps get horny as fuck and now that they’re drunk, they don’t care too much if they’re too forward with the hottie they like, they want to get it on! Good for them I say; just don’t forget the conny!

4. Peeps think they’re funny
Though society is nowhere near as uptight as it used to be years ago, people will always and forever have a somewhat prudish attitude towards nudity. There’s a time and place for it, and it’s certainly not the nightclub or the street (not that’s ever stopped these people of course). Most people watching these wannabe nudists strut their stuff with less than amateur strip teases or nude runs would dismiss them as dickheads, but these people probably wouldn’t dare do anything like this when sober, so we guess we do have to cut them some slack. This video was in one of our Clubbing Fail articles, but it’s just such a great example of what I’m talking about. Exhibitionism at its best and worst.
