Poets Get Laid More Often!

Professional artists and poets have about twice as many partners as other people, British psychologists have found.
The study also showed that the average number of sexual partners increased as creative output went up. What the artists produce draws attention to them, which seems to enhance their sexual allure.
So maybe you should just chuck away your gym membership, forget about wooing the chicks with rippling biceps, and hit the verse?

Update:

More depth and discussion of course from the Guardian.

You see this why us science geeks never get any. We're just at the opposite ends of the creative spectrum.

All is not lost - some scientists write poetry go see sham's blog. Now if gene girl isn't sexy, who is??

Even in traditional chinese movies, you'll see scholars and poets getting the maiden. In English world, Giacomo Casanova comes to mind.

Kamigoroshi said...

Hahaha...I do write poetry in fact. Just when there is actually a girl that bothers to pay attention in the first place. :)

don't wait for the girl - just start writing and gerrtting your words out there and you'll become a real babe-magnet!

of course traditional chinese movies are all written by failed scholars and poets, so naturally they make sure that in their fictional world, scholars and poets get all the babes. Writing from HK I can observe that the guys with the flash jobs and the flash cars also get the flash babes. But do you really want a piece of human tinsel for a girlfriend?

Wow!Is that what it takes?Oh well,no harm then in jumping on the bandwagon:

-----------------------------------
Charm Her Not With a Rose,
Floor Her Instead With Your Prose,
Scientists May Stun With Stupendous Feats,
But 'Tis The Poets Who See Action Between The Sheets,
With A Sip Of Wine And A Pull On A Fag,
They Rhyme Their Way To A Rock-Solid Shag,
So Grab Pen and Paper,My Aspriring Lover,
And Write Your Way To A Leg-Over!

-----------------------------------
Sharon,let me know if I suddenly seem a tad more attractive:-)

Poets have to worry about being sued for child support more often ? I'm not sure if that's a good thing :)
