On both sides of the pond, men and women regard a good sense of humour, confidence and a fit body as the defining attributes of sexiness; nor income, intelligence or an attractive face make it to the top of the leader board.

More than 42% of British females and over 48% of women in USA think a good sense of humour is the key to being sexy, whilst opinion between UK and USA men is split between attributes such as a fit body, confidence and a good sense of humour.

But even in times of recession, it would appear that a ‘healthy income’ does not make you sexy, it does not matter if you are in the United Kingdom or the United States of America, this option received the least amount of votes from males and females in both countries, in the latest survey from, EasyDate's casual dating website. Voters at were not that excited about ‘Intelligence’ or an ‘Attractive face’ either.

UK and USA members were asked 'what makes someone sexy' and were given 6 different qualities or attributes to choose from: a fit body, tons of confidence and self assurance, a healthy income, intelligence, good sense of humour and an attractive face.

At first glance, women in the UK do not seem that different from women in the USA when it comes to their opinion on sexiness but in closer inspection we start to see a difference.

More than 40% of respondents in both groups of women regard a good sense of humour as the attribute that defines whether someone is sexy or not; however, opinion seemed to split in their second choice, where more than 45% of American females selected ‘tons of confidence and self-assurance’, whilst only less than 23% of UK women chose this option.

Nearly 30% of males from the UK think that a fit body makes females sexy, whilst more than 26% of men in the USA share the same opinion. But apparently a similar sized section of the male population seems to take into account personality with more than 27% of UK men giving top marks to a good sense of humour and more than 27% who think ‘confidence and self-assurance’ win the case.

The strongest similarity comes from male and female opinion in the USA, where ‘a fit body’ was given almost an equal vote by both genders; 26.24% from men, 26% from women.

Results were based on a sample of 800 respondents, equally divided in four groups of 200 each, by gender and location.
