Scientists have proven the link between sex, drugs and rock-n-roll
Scientists at the University Penn state harrisburg have investigated the relationship between sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. The paper was published in the Human Ethology Bulletin.
“Sex, drugs and rock-n-roll — historically a triptych in pop culture. However, in scientific literature there is no empirical evidence that there is a positive correlation between these three phenomena,” — said in the Preface.
The researchers surveyed 181 men and 286 women. The results showed that communication really occurs under certain circumstances. “Depends on how you interpret variables”, — said in the study.
It turned out that women musicians are five times more likely to report short-term sexual relations without a condom. Musicians-men are three times more likely to use narcotic stimulants.
Heavy music genres such as punk, metal, techno and rap were the most associated with sex and drugs.
Scientists stressed that the results of the survey are preliminary. Further studies will be conducted on a wider range of respondents.
