A 2014 study conducted by the UK’s leading extramarital affairs site IllicitEncounters.com has revealed the male professions that women find the sexiest.
The study asked over 2,000 female members of the dating site what they thought the sexiest profession for a potential partner was and why. The top job title to get a ladies attention is entrepreneur; it’s unsurprising that creative, risk taking and intelligent entrepreneurs top the list, with examples such as Dragons’ Den star Peter Jones, Richard Branson (Virgin), Michael Smith (Mind Candy) all being ranked as top female crushes. However, straight-laced bankers and stockbrokers occupied the second place profession with women describing them as ambitious, ruthless and confident.
According to the study, the least attractive professions are professional footballer and politician. Probably not helped by the over exposure of the world cup and recent election campaigning, women viewed them as over-confident, vain, self-absorbed and as having a reputation.
IllicitEncounters.com spokesperson Mike Taylor commented: ” With the World Cup over (Well for England anyway) and the footballers antis on the pitch now moving off pitch, they could find themselves struggling to score as women find their over-confidence incredibly off-putting. Women who are looking for a new lover often look for a man who is as attractive on the inside, as well as the outside; they want someone they can have an emotional and physical connection with. It appears that whilst footballers may be attractive on the pitch, off the pitch most women feel they would have little or nothing in common with them. So despite their fame and fortune, most women find their arrogance, and reputation as a real turn off.”
Other professions that made the ‘hot’ list include doctors, firefighters and musicians. Firemen were described as heroic, caring and brave whilst doctors were seen to be professional, motivated and protective.
Sally 44 from Yorkshire, who uses IllicitEncounters.com to meet married men commented: ” I am looking for a date with someone who can provide stimulating conversation. I find men who are overly vain and egotistical off-putting, and I can’t imagine anything worse than going for dinner with a politician – I want to be excited, not bored to sleep, and I doubt they are dynamite in the bedroom either.”
Women also found musicians attractive, describing them as creative, artistic and mysterious. So footballers and politicians should watch out it looks like women are picking brains over brawn in the sexy professions stakes.
