women: August 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgAlthough many women claim to find them naff, researchers have found almost two thirds actually like it when a guy uses a cheesy chat-up line on them.

Almost four-in-ten women have gone out with a man who approached them using a cheesy line, with one-in-ten even going on to have a long-term relationship with them.
The survey also revealed 59 per cent of women think a man using a chat-up line shows he has a great sense of humour, with another 58 per cent saying it shows he is confident also.
Surprisingly one-in-twenty women even reckon they'd be MORE likely to go out with a guy if they came out with a chat-up line to impress them.
However, they did also say this likelihood would increase significantly if he also happened to be rich and good-looking.

275x250.jpgMarilyn Monroe has been named the greatest blonde of all time after beating off competition from Cameron Diaz and Scarlett Johansson.

The 'Some Like It Hot' star - who died in 1962 - pipped other fair-haired women to take top slot judged be a poll of 3,000 people.

Actress Grace Kelly came second while French beauty Brigitte Bardot was third and Cameron Diaz was the highest placed modern day star, making it into fourth.

Other women named in 'Greatest Blondes of All Time' list were Holly Willoughby (5th), Madonna (11th), Tess Daly (18th) and Paris Hilton (20th)

The study also found men were significantly more likely to try and hit on a blonde haired women… and then rejected and go home with a brunette.

275x250.jpgEight out of ten women admit regularly ripping the price tag off newly-purchased items before arriving home - to hide the true cost from their other half.

A recent study found millions of women try to cover their tracks after a spree by fibbing about the price of clothes, shoes and accessories.

The report revealed two thirds often describe new items as 'an absolute bargain' in a bid to throw their partner off the scent. Others regularly claim 'it was in the sale'.

A quarter said they hide new purchases in the wardrobe, while just under half wheel out the old 'It's not new - I've had it for ages' yarn.

But in odd news it turns out men tell just as many lies about clothes… like all those times he says "No, of course it doesn't make you look fat".

275x250.jpgCity bosses in Venice say they have granted a female gondolier with a full licence for the first time.

Giorgia Boscolo had to pass a year-long series of tests for her right to join the men in the gondoliers' guild and row tourists around the lagoon city.

The 24-year-old - whose father was also a gondolier - now joins the 424 men who are also qualified to navigate the narrow canals.

However, at the moment the mother-of-two is only allowed to fill in for one of the guys if he wants to take the day off.

And given they are allowed to charge £30 for each 20 minutes in the 11-metre long, black craft… it's probably not that often.

275x250.jpgTwo thirds of British employees, both male and female, say they would rather work for a man than a woman, it has been found.

That's because female bosses were accused of being bitchy, hormonal and incapable of leaving their personal lives at home.

A third of 3,000 employees polled claimed women in charge are 'loose cannons' - ready to stab colleagues in the back at any time, and who constantly feel threatened by other people in positions of authority.

By contrast, both male and female workers believe male bosses were less likely to get involved in office politics, were easier to reason with and rarely suffered from mood swings.

Men were also said to be more straight-talking than women… and probably easier to distract from the fact you're not working, with either a chat about football or a flash of cleavage.

275x250.jpgThe average woman will try on more than 21,000 items of clothing during her lifetime… but will only buy half of them.

On average, women are said to go shopping four times a month and on each trip they will try on ten tops, pairs of jeans, dresses or shoes.

That means they try on a total of 40 different items each month, which adds up to a staggering 480 a year.

However, only five of those items make it into to the tills during each shopping trip and one of those will later get returned and another never worn.

Top reasons for returning items include them not fitting properly or the shopper feeling guilty… though not about wasting time of their bloke sitting outside the changing room.

275x250.jpg60 percent of British couples always have sex in the missionary position, and the average sex session lasts just 24 minutes, it has been found.

A sex survey of 3,000 people has revealed the 'ins and outs' of sex in the UK  by asking couples intimate questions about their love-making.

It was said that most couples try out just three positions during the average sex session - but end up with the standard 'man on top'.

Two thirds of couples also admitted the 'doggy style' method of love making is their second favourite, followed by 'woman on top' with 57 percent.

The study also revealed the average sex sessions lasts a speedy 24 minutes… and worryingly, yes, that includes foreplay.

275x250.jpg Simply wearing the colour red makes a man more attractive and sexually desirable to women, it has been found by researchers.

Psychologists conducted tests by getting women to rate the attractiveness of a variety of men and state their willingness to date, kiss, and engage sexual activity with them.

They then digitally altered the colour of the T-shirts the men were wearing and compared the responses, finding men in red were consistently scored as being more attractive.

Those who have been wearing red were seen as more "powerful, attractive, and sexually desirable" said professor Andrew Elliot… who only wears red from now on.
