Taking Artsy Photos Is 7th in List of Sexiest Behaviors, Scientists Find
815 subjects (119 males and 696 females) were asked to rank those 43 activities according to how much they find them “sexually attractive in a mate.” The survey used a 5-point scale ranging from 1 (sexually unattractive) to 5 (sexually attractive).
“The taking of artistic photographs” was chosen by participants as the 7th sexiest creative behavior, behind playing sports, taking a date on a spontaneous road trip, recording music, making a clever remark, writing music, and performing a band (#1 through #6, respectively).
The study also suggests that, on average, women consider artsy photography to be a sexier activity than men do. Men consider it to be on par with dancing and painting, while women consider it to be on par with dressing fashionably and performing in comedy.
