Okay... well for the record not every woman likes chocolate, and I've never heard of a guy getting horny after eating chocolate, so where exactly is this info coming from?

For the alcohol, girls tend to be smaller than guys so the alcohol effects their bodies faster than girls. Also I remember hearing the guys have a higher percentage of water in their bodies which dilutes the alcohol more than girls, but I'm not entirely sure where I heard that or if it's true.

Anyways different things affect people in different ways, what makes you ask these questions about chocolate and alcohol anyway..?

Also, medications like birth control can affect a woman's ability to process alcohol, along with body weight and structure.

For the record though, I don't know any guy who can drink 'a zillion bottles' and still be sober. While my boyfriend doesn't act like a drunken frat boy after having a few beers, he's still not fit to drive. Blood alcohol level determines your sobriety, NOT how you act or appear.

Aside from the friends who are allergic to chocolate, I can't say either gender prefers chocolate more than the other. My boyfriend likes choco more than I do. But i'm just pickier about which choco I eat (i go gourmet).

Alcohol? It parses better into muscle than fat. Women have high % of body fat, so the alcohol stays in our bloodstreams longer, keep us intoxicated longer. Men have more muscle per weight, so the alcohol absorbs better and metabolizes faster.

People who drink more develop a tolerance ot the stuff. it takes more booze to make the person feel the effects. they may have the same blood alcohol level as anyone else who has drunken the same amount, but they feel it less. that's dangerous because they won't feel it if they've had too much till they pass out or die.
