Finding Loose Women (Hint: Their Names End in "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.)
I’m grateful to Smartdate for this insightful research. And if I have a daughter someday, I’ll be sure to name her “Quiznik”.
