Wow, get liquored up and you're more likely to engage in unsafe sex!
Who'da thunk it?
I'd really like to know how much money, and whose money, was spent learning something we all knew.

For the hetero U.S. population, getting killed in a car accident while drunk (or other accidental death) is a much bigger risk than getting HIV from having unsafe sex while drunk.

Let's face it, when you have too much to drink you are more likely to engage in unsafe activities. This has only been true since alcohol was discovered...

I'm not real sure of the results. Just give me a billion dollars, unlimited access to the Jack Danials plant and 12 women. I will do a study on this and give you results as soon as I sober up.

Of course after this experiment I will need another billion, unlimited access to a Starbucks, 12 more women and a few yrs to research.
