What Women Want

Survey: Brit chicks prefer skill in bed over dollars in bank.

Saturday, January 27, 2001.

LONDON — It seems that for British women, skill between the sheets is more important than money in the bank. A new survey on female attitudes in Britain reveals sexual prowess is rated as a more desirable characteristic in a man than money, sense of humor or intelligence.

Meanwhile women hate cheesy pickup lines, being belittled and men who talk to their breasts.

Nice Bum

The survey of 18- to 34-year-old women for mens' magazine FHM revealed that skill between the sheets was rated above bank balance by 84 percent.

A sense of humor was important to 74 percent, while only six percent thought a good body was a priority and just four percent listed intelligence as a prerequisite.

Other traits which women found attractive were kindness, honesty, fidelity, a decent standard of personal hygiene and a nice bum.

First Date Sex

Of the women questioned in the "Know All Her Secrets" survey published on Friday, 75 percent agreed they would have sex on a first date.

Almost half questioned, 46 percent, admitted they had fancied other women, and one-in-five have acted upon it.

If women in the UK prefer skill in bed over money in the bank, then how can 75% agree that they would have sex on the first date?
