You're not going to believe this, but science has proven that men are way more likely to take women up on random offers of sex than vice versa. But some brave truth-seekers asked the vital question...what about in other countries?
In science, it's important to not take anything for granted, to constantly question even our most deeply held assumptions. But this study by researchers at France's University of Southern Brittany may have taken that ideal to an unnecessary extreme:
Gender differences in receptivity to sexual offers have been found in previous studies conducted in the United States. However, this effect has never been replicated in another culture, and the impact of the attractiveness of the solicitor remains in question.
In search of the truth, the researchers launched this incredibly scientific, mildly creepy experiment:
An experiment was conducted in France in which male and female confederates of average versus high attractiveness approached potential partners of the opposite sex (120 males and 120 females) and asked them: "Will you come to my apartment to have a drink?" or "Would you go to bed with me?" The great majority of the men were willing to have a sexual liaison with a woman, especially when she was physically attractive. Women were more disinclined to have a drink, and none but one accepted the male's sexual request.
So now, who's ready for the most obvious conclusion to any scientific paper ever?
Such results confirm that men are apparently more eager for sexual activity than women are.
You don't say...
