It's official. Smoking And Drinking Will Get You Laid

But will you find love?

For a generation raised on 'Just Say No' and being recommended to Talk To Frank, we aren't used to positive news when it comes to smoking and drinking.

No, they still won't give you super powers or help you with a promotion but it might just mean you have more sex than your peers.

A study conducted by Ghent University in Belgium found that young men who smoke and drink are more attractive to women as short-term relationship partners than those that don't. 239 women were asked to rate their perceptions of mens actions in terms of healthiness and riskiness when their smoking and drinking varied from low to moderate to high. They were then asked if they wanted to date the men long or short-term.

Although results showed that risky and thrilling behaviour was a huge turn on for a fling, it showed for longer relationships women preferred less risky and healthier men.

But the link the female studies made was backed up when the men were tested too.  Women thought that heavy smokers and drinkers had more risk-taking personalities and preferred casual relationships. Sure enough in the second study of 171 young men a larger proportion of them were more interested in short than long-term romance. 

In other words, women love a fling with a bad boy but you might want to lay off the substances if you think she's the one. Wait, didn't we know this already?
