Theresa May Leads the Polls As She’s Officially Voted the UK’s Sexiest Politician

  • Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May are officially the UK’s sexiest politicians
  • With 24% of the female vote and 24% of the male vote, Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May top the list
  • On the other hand, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron (3%) and Shadow Home Secretary Dianne Abbott (2%) are the least desirable politicians
  • Men said that power (40%), intelligence (30%) and solvency (25%) were the most important factors behind their decisions
  • Women had a similar set of priorities; intelligence (44%), power (30%) and solvency (20%).
  • The results come from a survey of over 500 members on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

With the general election just weeks away, IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, has asked its members to take part in a slightly different kind of poll, with over 500 of its members asked on which politician they find sexiest.

Surprisingly, much maligned health secretary Jeremy Hunt topped the polls, receiving 24% of the female vote.

In second place was none other than Boris Johnson (20%), followed closely by Labour MP Dan Jarvis (15%) and, oddly, Jeremy Corbyn (10%),

On the other hand, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron received just 3% of the vote, making him the least attractive politician.

John McDonnell, didn’t fare so well either; with just 5% of the vote, only Tim Farron is less attractive than he is.

Other notable entries include former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who received 7% of the female vote.

Perhaps rather surprisingly, Theresa May was voted as the sexiest female politician (24%), with Yvette Cooper a close second (20%). Green Party leader Caroline Lucas rounded off the top 3 (18%).

There was no surprise when it came to the least popular female politician however: Dianne Abbott. Receiving just 2% of the male vote, she beat Emily Thornberry (4%) and Nicky Morgan (6%) to bottom spot.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson also featured,  as did Conservative MP Esther McVey;  both received 9% of the vote.

Men said that power (40%), intelligence (30%) and solvency (25%) were the most important factors behind their decisions, while women had a similar set of priorities; intelligence (44%), power (30%) and solvency (20%).

Christian Grant, spokesperson for the site, explains:

“It’s fair to say that, on the looks front, the British political scene is missing a Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron or even a Sarah Palin.

“What we do have, however, are intelligent and solvent people, and that’s where the attraction seems to primarily lie. Theresa May kitted out in lingerie doesn’t really make for a sexy calendar, but for many people, power is attractive, and she’s definitely got that in abundance.

“The same can be said of Corbyn; he’s got that cute grandad thing going on. For Tim Farron and Dianne Abbot, however, well, the latter hasn’t even mastered the basics of mathematics for crying out loud.”

Most Attractive Politicians – Male

  1. Jeremy Hunt (24%)
  2. Boris Johnson (20%)
  3. Dan Jarvis (15%)
  4. Jeremy Corbyn (10%)
  5. Michael Gove (8%)
  6. Other (8%)
  7. Nigel Farage (7%)
  8. John McDonnell (5%)
  9. Tim Farron (3%)

The Most Successful Words for An Online Dating Profile Have Been Revealed

  • The comprehensive list of the best and worst adjectives to use for your online dating profile have been revealed
  • Men are looking for a woman who describes herself as sexy, honest and confident, while women want honesty, intelligence and confidence
  • Women should stay away from describing themselves as shy, trustworthy and happy, while men should also avoid shy and happy, as well as curvy
  • Many men (4%) like women who describe themselves as curvy, but only 0.6% of women describe themselves in this way
  • Interestingly, women are more likely to describe themselves as sexy, but they’re less likely to ask for someone sexy in return
  • The results come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who studied over 400,000 profiles on their site

Struggling to get much attention on your online dating profile? Include the words “sexy”, “honest” and “confident” and your chances of success will significantly increase.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, studied over 400,000 profiles on their site to find what men and women were both looking for from their ideal partner, as well as how they described themselves.

If you’re a woman, then the key words to include on your profile are “sexy”, “honest” and “confident” as 15%, 10% and 7% of men respectively are after these traits more so than anything else.

In the meantime, stay well clear of describing yourself as shy (2%), trustworthy (1%) and, oddly enough, happy (0.3%).

If you’re a man whose profile is filled with references to how handsome everyone tells you you are, remove all of that and instead refer to yourself as honest (13%), intelligent (10%) and confident (9%); women value your character over your vanity.

In terms of what to avoid, there’s nothing that screams “undateable” quite like referring to yourself as shy, curvy or, again, happy; just  1%, 0.09% and 0.4% of women respectively are looking for these traits.

In terms of how people described themselves, you’re most likely to stumble across a man who’s honest (10%), intelligent (9%) and confident (8%), while women are honest (9%), sexy (8%) and intelligent (7%).

Interestingly, many men (4%) like women who describe themselves as curvy, but only 0.6% of women describe themselves in this way. Women are, however, more likely to describe themselves as sexy, but they’re less likely to ask for someone sexy in return.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explained the importance of creating a good first impression:

“With so much competition, the world of online dating is all about fine margins; anything that’s even slightly off-putting marks you as a liability.

“Many people struggle to strike the balance between confidence and arrogance, instead adopting an overly modest approach, but that rarely works. Who wants to go out with someone who describes themselves as shy and introverted? Nobody, that’s who.

“It’s no surprise to see that both men and women are looking for someone whose honest and confident, but there are some interesting differences between the sexes.

“Most notably, men are, on the whole, gravitated more toward someone who really sells their looks; words such as ‘sexy’ or ‘curvy’ are all-important.

“While these aren’t exactly unimportant to women, you’ll find that they’re more concerned if someone’s intelligent or affectionate  – without that, it doesn’t matter how sexy you are.”

The ideal number of sexual partners has been revealed, and 12 is the magic number

  • There *is* an ideal number of sexual partners to have had, and it’s 12
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, surveyed over 1,000 people to find that 40% of men and 49% of women thought that between 10 and 14 partners is best, with 12 being perfect
  • 60% of men and 55% of women agreed that sleeping with as many as 12 partners is indicative of someone who’s sexually adventurous, liberal and transient.
  • Conversely, 70% of men and 66% of women said that anything less than 10 partners indicates sexual inexperience and a lack of adventure in the bedroom
  • Men and women disagreed when it came to sexual history; over half of men want to know how many people their partner has slept with – they want to know what the competition is like – while as little as 45% of women are interested

Is there an ideal number of sexual partners someone can have? As it turns out, yes, and that number is 12.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 1,000 people to find out how many sexual partners they’d want their new lover to have had.

As many as 40% of men and 49% of women said that between 10 and 14 partners is best, making it the most popular answer. Within that range, both men and women landed on 12 as the perfect number.

As it turns out, this represents an increase on last year’s finding, where 10 was seen as the ideal number.

Why 12? Well, 60% of men and 55% of women agreed that sleeping with as many as 12 partners is indicative of someone who’s sexually adventurous, liberal and transient.

At the same time, an overwhelming 70% of men and 66% of women said that anything less than 10 partners indicates sexual inexperience and, more importantly, someone who is a bit too conservative in the bedroom.

Both sexes also agreed that anything above 19 partners is a red flag, indicating that perhaps someone is too eager to jump from partner to partner, or simply too selfish and very difficult to please.

There is, however, one notable point in which men and women fundamentally disagreed, and that’s in knowing their partner’s sexual history. For men, this was incredibly paramount, with as a little over half (53%) stating that they’d want to know how many people their partner has slept with, while as little as 45% of women were interested in knowing the same.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, commented:

“We are more liberal, tolerant and sexually adventurous than we’ve ever been, so the numbers game matters. A good sexual connection is the cornerstone of any solid relationship, so someone who is lacking in sexual experience, is a little too conservative between the sheets, or both, is a legitimate cause for concern for some people.

“Men are a little more self-conscious when it comes to competition, too. Their need to know how many people their partner has slept with derives from their competitive streak. They want to be seen as the biggest and best; whether that stems from genuinely wanting to satisfy their partner or to massage their own ego is another matter entirely.

“Women on the other hand, they’re just happy to enjoy the moment, past experiences aside.”
