They are more adventurous in bed and like sex more.
Almost six out of ten people (58%) say brunettes are better in bed.
The results are the same for men and women – just 16% chose blondes, followed by lovers with black (12%) and red hair (9%).
Four out of ten respondents (42%) say brunettes are more likely try new things in the bedroom.
And just fewer than half those polled (47%) also say that brunettes are the most sexually voracious.
The results are a resounding victory for brunette beauties such as Kate Beckinsale, Emily Blunt and Natalie Portman over blondes such as Scarlett Johansson and Cameron Diaz.
They are from a new survey of 1,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, Britain’s leading dating website for married people.
Blondes may not be best for sex but they are top when it comes to cheating.
Just over half those polled (54%) said blondes are the most unfaithful, followed by brunettes (26%) and those with black (12%) and red hair (8%).
The poll tested the truth about some of our other well-known sexual sayings.
You CAN laugh someone into bed.
Nine out of ten of us (91%) say that a sense of humour is a big factor when choosing a lover.
And a quarter of women (24%) say they would sleep with a man who is funny even if they aren’t attracted to his looks.

Three-quarters of women (75%) and 63% of men say their best lover was a terrible dancer.
More than six out of ten of us (64%) say income is irrelevant, though a third (33%) admit it is a factor but not the main one.
One saying which appears to be true is the fact that quiet people are more sexually voracious.
More than a third of us (36%) say this is the case most of the time and 56% reckon it is sometimes true. Just 9% say quiet people are also shy in the bedroom.
Men really do think about sex more than women – with 59% admitting it is on their mind several times a day, compared to just 45% of women.
Christian Grant, spokesman for IllicitEncounters.com, said: “There is no doubt that blonde women get more interest from men on dating sites.
“But they are not likely to make the best lovers and they need watching carefully because they could be dating someone else at the same time.
“This new research from IllicitEncounters.com shows that brunettes might be the best options if you want to have fun on a date – and a great time in the bedroom.”
Most of IllicitEncounters.com’s male members are white collar professionals earning an average of £54,000 a year.
Women on the site cheat more than men – enjoying three clandestine dates a month, compared to men’s two.
