Red­heads have more sex, says study

Sunday Times - - World -

BLONDES may have more fun but red­heads have more sex, ac­cord­ing to new re­search in Ger­many.

The study, con­ducted by Ham­burg sex re­searcher Dr Werner Haber­mehl, looked at the sex lives of hun­dreds of Ger­man women and com­pared them with their hair colour, re­ports Ananova.com.

He said: “The sex lives of women with red hair were clearly more ac­tive than those with other hair colour — with more part­ners and hav­ing sex more of­ten than the av­er­age. The re­search shows that the fiery red­head cer­tainly lives up to her rep­u­ta­tion.”

He added that when women dyed their hair red, it was a sig­nal that they were look­ing for a part­ner. “Even women in a fixed re­la­tion­ship are let­ting their part­ners know they are un­happy if they dye their hair red. They are say­ing that they are look­ing for some­thing bet­ter,” said Haber­mehl.

How­ever, psy­chol­o­gist Chris­tine Bau­manns said that it might not be the women who were ac­count­able for the bet­ter sex lives of red­heads.

She said: “Red stands for pas­sion and when a man sees a red­head he will think he is deal­ing with a wo­man who won’t mess around, and gets straight to the point when it comes to sex.”
