The Sexiest Sport: Climbing

  |  Posted in

According to a study by Quirkology, over 6000 people were asked which sporting activities would make a member of the opposite sex more attractive. 51% of women found hiking attractive, 52% found football to be exciting and 56% found extreme sports to be attractive. But….

Rock climbing won the competition with 57%! It’s official. Rock climbing is the sexiest sport from a female perspective. The lowest scores came from aerobics and golf, with just 9% and 13% of the vote respectively.

In contrast, men were most attracted to women into aerobics (70%), followed by yoga (65%), and going to the gym (64%). Bottom of their list came bodybuilding (5%), rugby (6%), and golf (18%).

“Our findings suggest that women who’ve been pounding the pavements in search of love would do better taking up aerobics, while men seeking women need to ditch the weights and get on the climbing wall,” said fitness expert Sam Murphy, who teamed up with Quirkology on the study. “That said, the best way to find happiness – not to mention a long-lasting fitness regime – is to do what you love. Unless, that is, it’s golf!”
