Men Prefer Brunette Lovers, Survey
Men prefer brunettes when it comes to picking lovers.
While blondes are often cited as being more fun, a new survey reveals that brunettes make the best lovers.
While 58 percent of men believe that brunettes are better in bed, only 16 percent say that blondes are the best lovers. The survey also revealed that 12 percent say women with black hair and 9 percent say women with red hair are the best lovers.
"Until now, brunettes have had fun quietly," said hairdresser Russell McGrath, operations director at Michael Van Clarke London, according to the Daily Mail. "But now they're outshining the blondes and are enjoying a sexier approach to life."
"We find women often come into the salon asking to go brunette for a sexier look - from Elizabeth Taylor to Audrey Hepburn and Anne Hathaway, brunette starlets have inspired women for decades," McGrath said. "Brunettes have healthy locks with bounce and shine in abundance - this promotes confidence which makes it the number one choice for hair color."
The survey, conducted by Lovehoney.co.uk, also revealed that having a sense of humor is hugely important when choosing a partner. The survey found that a quarter of women believe admit that they would sleep with a man who is funny, even if they find him unattractive.
The survey also revealed that a way to a man's heart is really through his stomach, with the majority of men say that they are more inclined to hook up with a woman who knows her way around the kitchen.
"Our poll shows that men are looking for brunettes who are great in the kitchen.
'It probably explains why the brunette baker Luisa Zissman was such a hit with male fans of The Apprentice," said Lovehoney co-founder Richard Longhurst, according to the Daily Mail.
"Women want a dark-haired lover who can laugh them into bed and they are not too bothered what he looks like - so I guess that is very good news for Michael McIntyre," he added.
"Seriously, this shows that most of these sayings have entered our vocabulary because there is some truth in them, though some more than others," he said.
