Drunk Fruit Flies ‘Just Like’ Male Humans on a Binge

03Mar08

Mating Fruit FliesThe activities of fruit flies exposed to alcohol are apparently similar to those of the human male when on a drinking binge, Science Daily reported. Go figure.

According to scientific research, booze makes fruit flies want to hump more, while providing the bugs with less sexual inhibition (in other words a ‘flop-on’) and also makes them more inclined to show affection toward men; aka ‘inter-male courtship’.

I don’t mean to damn this piece of research, but I could’ve told you that without shouting around for hundreds of fruit flies.—Rachel Brook
