Finding Loose Women (Hint: Their Names End in "A")

Rate: 41 Flag

A 

 (What a naughty scarlet letter...)

 

The French are always a valuable source of important data about women.  This week, France-based Smartdate, an online dating service, released some news sure to cheer lazy men looking for shortcuts in the hunt for compliant partners.

The company’s research arm, Smartdate Labs (I would love to know what goes on there), announced that women’s names “play a determining role in sexual behavior”.  It seems women whose names end in “a” tend to have more – far more – sexual partners than women whose names end in other letters.

Smartdate surveyed more than 17,000 of its female members, regarding their lifetime number of bedmates.  They found that while the average was 4.4 total partners, the gals with an attractive “a” at the end were doing more than twice as well.  Ladies with names such as Laura, Tania, Lola and Julia reported jogging horizontally with more than 9 lifetime partners.

Needless to say, this is a shocking discovery.  There are French women who’ve only slept with 4.4 men?

I’ve met French women for whom that's a memorable weekend.

Nevertheless, there must be a kernel of takeaway wisdom to these survey results.  At a party, in a bar, in the office or at church, men should now know not to waste their time trying to impress Ellen, Susan, Emily or Beth.  They’ll have a much better chance with Angelina, Isabella, Sofia or Emma.  It's the exotic "a" that marks the softer targets.

As Smartdate's CEO puts it, "Exotic names attract us and make us dream... And it is without doubt for this reason that they they perform better when it comes to seduction." (My translation.)

Indeed.

I’m grateful to Smartdate for this insightful research.  And if I have a daughter someday, I’ll be sure to name her “Quiznik”.

Coincidentally, another study shows that Laura, Tania, Lola and Julia are the most popular names for prostitutes.
On a related note, I understand that compliant men may have the last name "Now".
This explains all those one-night stands I've had! ;-)
Maybe this explains why I've always been attracted to women named "Spatula".

What?
I better get busy, there is no I in team...
I recollect a 1.4, he was definitely quite a guy. Very grateful that I haven't run up against (or laid down against) a .4.
Methinks Barbara -- Bush, Walters and Streisand -- might prove the exception to this rule
And so nice to see that WellPoint shows special concern for women whose name ends in "a"
I wonder if I should drop the "h" from my name.
How long do you think it will take to push through the name change paperwork to Abbya?

I think that word is taken already,... but still
I don't want to be the one to report this news to Stellaa.
gotta love those spanish and italian women!
You are funny M Loup. Just to set the record clear A is the first initial ob my last name. ~R
My dear FusunA, you break my heart...
I've slept with .4 women. Parts were missing.
I'll never forget that .4 of a man I slept with. Truly an unforgettable experience. (I think I'll try to find him on Facebook.)
Well, now, this sure explains a lot. I never dated a girl/woman whose last name ended in "a". Guess that's the price you pay for growing up in an era in which critically important research like this was unavailable.
So THATS why families have 2.5 children...... they're from women who've had 4.4 male partners!! The mystery is explained at last!!

For those zillions of delicious women out there who are contemplating jumping my bones, I AM NOT part of the .4 of men.
I am, thank you very much, one of the two .5 children my mother had.
MTN,
Borrowed the Atheist Nexus logo?
If we want to go by names isn't Felicia, which does end in a, pretty much the Holy Grail?
Hi, Stellaa! Hey, il s'agit d'une étude banale, non?
@Anthony: That is a very clever, clean dirty joke. Love it!
because the word scarlet was in your post I just had to add something ...
don't forget christina
@Stellaa: That's a marvelous expression.
wouldn't I love to know what that meant..
I have no explanation I can rely on for being off the chart in this study. I have been married 4 times. You know there were auditions. The "a" in my name is trapped in the middle.
Dr. Freeborn, we really should chat over a beverage about your experiences and observations. I'd be an attentive audience. Always willing to learn. ;)
Heyyy! My name ends with an A. Oh, wait...all of a sudden everything makes sense.
now I know why my mom dropped the a :( damn...I could have been having much more fun.
cinderella comes to mind here...

r
but then, we were never very close.
Hmm. My first name ends with an "A". My middle name both starts and ends with an "A". I have an awful lot of catching up to do. Or maybe the people at Smartdate do. At least according to their numbers...
I cry foul!!! I feel like a carnival shooting range duck, I have been married more than 4.4 times and my name does not end with an A! Some of you ladies that end in A need to step up and do your share. Frisky men are running wild, proposing to everyone that moves!!!

stray men running loose everywhere, mumble... can't even go to the grocer without being cruised, grumble... need to buy some large curlers to wear shopping, grrr grr... if they are going to gawk they should at least open the door, still mumbling... but love the post.

Interesting study. I wonder how this study would compare to Americans. I've been married to 1 man for 24 years. However before that I had 1 relationship with 1 fella and somewhere during my marriage me and my spouse lived separately. I had a relationship during that time... which led to my reconciliation with my husband. So 3 sounds like many. I wouldn't say that having a higher number means something positive. Higher numbers might mean something more for men. But I'd prefer to keep those numbers low. :)
I have always wanted to change my name from Mary to Maria, now I know why.

4.4?
What grade were these women in?
I'd always thought I was kinda sheltered, but 4.4 was just the seventies.
I have to say MTN, the last marriage stuck and within a month it will be our 20 year anniversary. He might wonder. Really, once you find an inspiring good partner, it's a tremendous relief to those of us with a little mileage.
anyway, they aren't loose. more like 'lovable.'
did they count guys you slept with that you thought you were in love with or just guys you slept with? wait. maybe i shouldn't ... ;
I'll personally vouch for this.
hey-- heres a name for a woman. Ambrosia. or maybe its the name for all women, wink :p
No wonder why Alotta Fagina was so popular in Austin Powers!!!
his website is very good, you can go and see it===clshoe.us===
Aha...so I was right about Rebecca...xox
How many decimal points does oral sex get? 4.4 is laughable, really, but they probably don't want to offend the virgins.
Ah, no wonder I am such a love magnet. My name starts with an A and ends with an A.
Haha, this is hilarious. I am sure my name would have been something along the lines of "Kunich" had my father known this.
What would be interesting is to control for ethnicity, class or other groupings. Certainly, I'd expect more Marias and Luisas from an Italian family and Bridgets and Shannons from an Irish.

And do the actual names matter more? Do Wihelmina and Agatha do better (or worse, depending on your values) than Jenny or Cindy?

My real name, for the record, ends with a very unsexy consonant. As do my middle and last names.

That .4 is all a woman needs sometimes.
Holy correlation-equals-causation, batman! My wife of 28 years has a hyphenated first name, both parts end with an "a". And her middle name ends with an "a". It's true!

Oh, forgot about the french part. Does "french" activities count?

[R]
I changed my name long ago from something ending in "A" to something far more pronounceable. Now I find out I made a mistake?

Hmm...Nikka...or perhaps Nicola?
4.4 is average for a lifetime? Hmmm.
Damnit! My parents almost named me Tatiana!
Rut-ro! I'm screwed. Both of my daughters' names end with "A" as well.
"I wonder if I should drop the "h" from my name.
Sarah Cavanaugh"

Well then you'd be left with a "g" and a little spot at the end;-)
Are the French calling me a slut?

So that's why I wanted to change my name to Ludmillia.
How did "Bubbles" and "Choo-choo" do? R
@David Price: Bubbles and Choo-Choo are doing just fine. I picked them up at a bargain price at the Michael Jackson estate sale! Happiest chimps you've ever seen. ;)

If that were true, every woman in Italy (myself included) would be having one helluva good time...ALL women's names end in A.
Then again, the time you had would depend on the guy...
