Metallica, Nirvana and Linkin Park Fans More Likely to Have Sex on First Date
Tastebud.com, a music and dating site, published their (most likely unscientific) research today asking their users how likely they were to have sex on the first date. Basically the site figures that people who listen to the same music are more apt to get along in the bedroom. The results of the research weren't that surprising.
Adele, Coldplay and Lady Gaga listeners were the least likely to have sex on the first date, while fans of grunge-rockers Nirvana were the most likely to end up looking for their underwear in unknown bedrooms the morning after.
Blur fans were also 20-percent more likely to get it on on the first date than Oasis fans.
Tastebud.com asked 408 of their members: "How far would you go on a first date?" with three possible answers:
* I'd only meet up for a chat
* Perhaps a kiss
* All the way, if there was chemistry
The question received 408 responses in the space of a week. We looked at the average response for people who were fans of each of Last.fm's top 20 most popular artists (week ending March 27, 2011) and assigned a score of 1 for the first answer, 2 for the second and 3 for the third.
The result is the graph.
