Women Prefer Guitarists Over Sports Players, Says the Latest Study
We all know that the ladies have a thing for axemen, but now there is even a study that has officially confirmed it.

The latest research from the French University of South Brittany saw a young 20-year-old man approaching about 300 women, roughly aged between 20 and early '30s, in a local shopping district. After giving compliments for their appearance, the man asked them for their number, sometimes carrying a guitar case, sometimes a sports bag and sometimes no bag at all.

The results were clear - the guitar case is the winning ticket, besting both the sport bag and the empty handed approach, easily doubling the success rate. Interestingly enough, carrying a sport bag proved as less efficient then carrying nothing at all.

To sum it all up, the guitar case has earned the guy a phone number from one third of the women he approached, empty-handed approach had a 14 percent success rate, while the sport bag did the trick with only nine percent of the ladies.

"This experiment tested the assumption that music plays a role in sexual selection," the Psycholohy of Music journal reports. "Results showed that holding a guitar case was associated with greater compliance to the request, thus suggesting that musical practice is associated with sexual selection."

So there you have it, grab that case and hit the streets, you would't want to leave the ladies yearning for too long, now would you?
