Let's be honest, drinking does certainly loosen us up sometimes.
And for Nadia Bokody, that's when she had her first encounter with another woman.
The sex writer, from Australia, opened up about the "crazy drunken night" she experienced during her student years.
She said it was something she wouldn't speak about or confess to anyone at the time.
But now she's gone into detail about that first encounter in a honest piece for news.com.au while speaking about her sexuality.
Nadia said: "I'm drunk. Not slurring, messy drunk. Just nicely buzzed.
"The lights of the nightclub weave around us, lassoing our bodies together."
She continued: "Time slows down to the erotic pulse of the bass, and we kiss. It's also my first encounter with another woman."
Although she had tucked away this memory in the "farthest corner" of her mind, she admits it's still there.
Nadia wrote: "It won't be the last time I'll deny this part of me exists.
"I just remember internalising the idea women who were attracted to one another could provoke disgust.
"At age 13, my grandmother commented on my hair, 'don't go too short, you'll look like one of those lesbians'."
And just a couple of months before Nadia met her boyfriend, she dated a woman.
The writer detailed: "Although we were openly affectionate in public.
"I found myself deliberately omitting gender pronouns while talking to family and friends about the relationship.
"Despite being attracted to women since I was 16, my relationships with men and otherwise 'straight passing' appearance.
"I never felt like I was existing in a closet, either. Rather, I was stuck in between showing my true self, and staying behind the desk."
The writer continued: "If my boyfriend and I broke up, and I dated another woman, would I feel the need to omit her pronouns again?
"The truth is, I'm not straight. I'm bisexual. I've always insisted I don't prescribe to labels.
"But in reality, my refusal to define myself was the ultimate form of covering."
So Nadia concludes to not mask who you truly are, adding: "If I learnt anything from my early same-sex experiences.
"It's that the only thing worse than opening yourself up to heartbreak, is concealing your heart altogether."
