From the Bible to pop music, the implication that alcohol works like some sort of love potion has been around for ages. But does alcohol actually have an aphrodisiac effect?

Cambodia's biggest beer garden culture can be found in cities such as Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Over recent decades tourism has increased and big beer companies saw an opportunity to capitalise on this. A beer girl's job is to promote and sell as much beer as they can for the establishment or beer brand they work for. Employed by local and foreign breweries, they spend their shifts approaching customers, persuading them to drink with them. These young women are usually paid on a commission-only basis. This means they often have to drink all night long with their customers, encouraging them to spend more money, exposing them to high levels of alcohol consumption, violence and harassment.

Most research on alcohol consumption and related sexual violence focuses on Western societies. Drawing on traditional masculinity scripts, this article contributes to the culturally specific understanding of how Nigerian sociocultural constructions of alcohol consumption facilitate sexual violence against women. In-depth interviews were conducted with 31 male and female undergraduate students aged years , exploring how the gendering of alcoholic beverages facilitates men's perpetration of sexual violence against women in a Nigerian university. Thematic analysis was conducted using NVivo 10 software. To maintain a notion of "respectable" femininity, women consumed these drinks, but this created gender-specific risks.
