Two "Studies" That Will Make Your Head Explode

Here are two studies that should be viewed side-by-side, just for their train-wreck appeal. Regarding the sex survey, The Count is half Italian (from Italy, not American-Italian), and Italian men are having more orgasms than anyone else. Har-dee-har-har. ;) And in case anyone is wondering, Italian women crave sex. Looks like Italian men can deliver. Hee hee!!

Pity Britain Wales. Those guys have a lot to learn.

Men in Swansea, England suck at sex. And it doesn't stop there. [Correction: Swansea is in Wales, not England.]

According to a new survey, the city's men spend an average of 3 minutes 35 seconds when making love to their partners. According to a new survey, the city's men spend an average of 3 minutes 35 seconds when making love to their partners.

That performance puts Swansea in a mid-table position, a long way behind league leaders London men and their average of five minutes, 10 seconds, but comfortably ahead of relegation- threatened Brummies with their disappointing two minute, 25 second performance.

The survey was compiled by television channel Speed Auction TV, who asked 2,000 women between the ages of 18 and 45 to rate their men's performance.

I wonder if those men have beer bellies? Playgirl - a magazine known for appealing to gay men - conducted a survey, and found that women like men who are a bit pudgy. I just kept thinking about that silly article that said men should opt for jeans that are too tight rather than baggy. Sorry to disappoint you, guys, but women aren't turned on by hairy buttcracks and flab hanging over your jeans.

The study also found that women are attracted to poor men. I seriously doubt that many women would want to be involved with men who are perennially unemployed or can't hold a job. Before the trolls jump on this comment, keep in mind that when married couples have children, they may decide between themselves that mom will stay home with the children. She's not slacking off. She's taking the primary care of the children, and that's work. I won't even bother to respond to any trolls who try to egg me into an argument over this.

On the other hand, I agree that chest hair is sexy. Now, back hair is a turn-off.

A new survey finds ladies like their men scruffy, a wee bit chubby - and definitely not a metrosexual.

Playgirl asked 2,000 of its readers what they find sexy in a man and the answers were surprising: 42% said they thought love handles were kind of sexy and 47% approved of chest hair.


Rich playboys need not apply - only 4% of women said the size of a man's wallet mattered. Metrosexuals are also out: 73% want a guy who is "rough around the edges."

Chubby for men can mean different things as some men are built like square boxes, especially Irish types. All of my brothers were box-like figures, even when they were little. I think what the article is saying is most women don't like men who are too thin and spindley.

Also, the other numbers sound about right too for the average man, spendinig somewhere between 2 and 6 minutes for ordinary lovemaking. It makes you wonder why women even bother.

It takes me five minutes to figure out which shoe to take off first when I'm getting ready for bed. According to this survey, sex could have been over already for about 2.5 minutes before I got my first shoe off.

Yet women keep insisting on shagging men all over the place. Even these one-night stands women engage in have me totally baffled. For the life of me, I can't figure out what women get out of them...

I mean it made sense when I was a teenager to do these things as generally you were shagging your future husband, who was going to be the father of your children and supporting the whole lot of you for the next 50 odd years.

But NOW what's the point of it for 2.5 minutes of pure bliss I guess.

Oh well.

It's not a proper survey on body image unless it leaves a large number of people feeling unhappy. :) Oh, and that'll be Swansea, *Wales*.

I'm glad someone else noticed Swansea was misidentified as *gasp* English and, despite my affinity for the Welsh, I can vouch that I've had better experiences with my 1 ex bf who is English men compared to the Welsh one.

I'd also like to point out that while Swansea men may be behind Londoners, they're apparently well ahead of other Englishmen, such as men from Birmingham.

And frankly, I don't believe it about the Londoners: I've never met an English guy who didn't think he was God's gift--and we all know that such attitudes *never* make good lovers. I suspect that women in rate men in London more highly for the simple fact that there are so few Englishmen there!

Argh: the above should read "women in London rate the men there...."

Ack, that was my dumb fault. I should have been clued in by the name of the web site: "This Is South Wales." Yes, Swansea is in Wales, not England. My bad. I'll go skulk off now and bang my head on the wall for not paying proper attention.

Why do I get the feeling this "survey" was submitted by some bored convict, like most of the letters in "Penthouse Forum". I hope you guys didnt' think it was a real survey!!
