No, G-d forbid! A Jew should never do that and has no excuses if (s)he does (but we all do sin). You are supposed to be so drunk that you no longer can tell the hero in the story from the villain.

"what is Purim"

Great history - naked women, espionage, and in the end, with G-ds help, we avoided extermination, and we killed thousands of our enemies!

short version.
