"You should show everyone in the bar how great you sing and dance"

It’s called liquid courage for a reason

level 3

Because it's a liquid?

level 4

yes

level 5

But has it gone too far?

Nah, text #13 has got to be the lucky one.

level 7

The lucky one is the ugly person drinking cranberry and water all night waiting for everyone else to lower their standards.

level 8

I think they call them rapists now.

level 9

This is a point of political weirdness for me.

There was always an unwritten rule that you don't have sex with someone who is emotionally over the line or intoxicatedly over the line.

But getting a little liquid courage to "do the deed" was quite standard. As was regret. Because of the Bible, or your mother, or the talk of the town, or whatever.

But you know if you did it willingly and you just... IDK, owned up.

All this talk of "I was three beers deep and regret what happened" and that's rape has me very worried about how you all are going to handle things.

A person who's passed out can not give consent, but someone who makes questionable choices while drunk... maybe that's why thy got drunk? I'm glad I don't have to deal with it because I'm married and If that changes (knock on wood it won't) the people I'll be dating will hold the same values as me.

level 10

Same. I had loads of drunk sex I would not have had sober and I regret none of it. One of them I got to know properly later and is now my husband. Obviously I’m with you on the don’t touch the unconscious - apparently needs saying, sadly. I suspect (and hope) it’s not really that much more terrible and confusing out there now, than a decade or 2 or 3 ago. We only hear about horrible cases, or bad attempts at rules about it.

level 10

I agree. There is a huge difference between "I was drunk and didn't think" and "I was so drunk I was able to make a coherent sentence, let alone understand what I was being asked". If you think the person is too drunk to give you a blowjob, then that person is too drunk to fuck.

Why do you think there is a problem here, u/SteamandDream? u/larrydocsportello is responding to a comment by u/PM_NUDES_4_AVG_HAIKU which uses the phrase "for a reason": the former's "too" refers to that, while his "also" refers to its being called "idiot juice" in addition to its being called "liquid courage". Totally straightforward: nothing to see here; move along.

I drink a lot of vodka and this is why my main credo is No Karaoke ever.

level 3

You should try it, karaoke black out nights lead to poon and greatness. I thought everybody knew this. Sing war pigs and the tails gather like curly fries.

level 4

Yo real talk. The confidence and charisma it takes to go up on stage and make a fool of yourself makes it so much easier to get laid (provided you follow the two rules). All you need to do is pick a song everybody knows and have fun with it (a lot of songs will get everybody singing which can mask if you're not great at singing). Sing and dance and don't care what anybody thinks, and you're golden.

level 5

I thought the two rules were 1) be attractive and 2) don't be not attractive.

level 6

He was talking about subset B. The rules you stated are subset A and most always be included before applying subset B. B rules are bonuses but not necessarily required to achieve your goal if you already possess the qualification for subset A.

level 6

Yes, because the only people who have ever had sex are conventionally attractive people.

level 7

And this brings us back to hard liquor.

pick a song everybody knows and have fun with it

Making my way downtown walking fast

Faces pass and I'm home bound

level 6

Good choice, honestly. If you’re like me and can’t sing worth a damn, the more embarrassing and funny the choice, the better. And a song like that would be great.

level 7

I can't carry a tune to save my life, but I will 100% sell this song with more energy and enthusiasm than Terry Crews, but I can't promise I will know the words to this song like that legend does.

level 6

Can almost guarantee if you do that song and make it fun you'll get laid.

level 5

Wait really? I'm about to try this. I'm pretty confident in myself but hate getting on stage. Maybe it'll finally cure my stage fright with a little alcohol.

level 6

Alcohol helps a ton. Also don’t be the first one up there. Wait a bit. It’ll give you a feel for what songs go over well (because this varies based on the crowd) and everybody will be more drunk which lowers the pressure.

But yeah, dude. There’s a certain charm about somebody who isn’t afraid to make a fool of themselves in public. It’s like the ultimate confident move, both guys and girls alike. But I’ll mention, there’s a difference between making a fool of yourself when it’s super fun (like Karaoke) and cringe-worthy making a fool of yourself.

level 7

Haha, no doubt! I saw a guy I had just met sing Little Lion Man by Mumford & Sons very, very well. And even though I'm straight and not a fan of their music, I suddenly found that guy very attractive LOL.

I mean dude was seriously talented though.

An alternative approach, for any man who wants to live life a little closer to the edge, is to pick 'Dance With The Devil' by Immortal Technique, and rap it whilst staring intently and with as few blinks as possible at the woman/man/object you're intending to seduce (the fact that you are able to stare in this way, without looking at the lyrics, demonstrates that you've already memorised them - a robust indicator of your dedication and strength of character), keeping your face expressionless and stroking your penis rhythmically through your trousers - increasing in grip strength and extent of stroke, though not in velocity, as the track approaches its climax.

Don't tell me this. My boyfriend's go-to karaoke song is despacito (played out song that everybody hates, I know,) but he looks damn good singing it. He can sing the whole damn song, both English and Spanish parts, without looking at the screen. He's latino, tall, and fit. I've had women look at me with absolute envy when he sets the microphone down and walks over to kiss me. He went to karaoke tonight without me because I didn't feel like going out. Sure, I want him to have fun with his friends, I trust him, but it's weird to know how jazzed up other chicks get by watching my boyfriend at karaoke.

Huh. I do a lot of karaoke and my main credo is No Shots ever (in front of other people).

I will get up in front of hundreds or thousands and belt out some embarrassing Disney duet, but the only time I will ever drink is alone in my apartment when I know for a fact that no one will need me the rest of the day. (I work at a TV station and can get called in if something blows up - sometimes literally - and so drinking is generally not a great idea.)

It a reference to the neckbeard lifestyle. Guys who fancy themselves gentleman might use this type of language to woo women and are unaware that it has the opposite effect. Anyone who has any social awareness would not talk that way.
