Quirkology recently teamed up with fitness expert Sam Murphy to explore the relationship between sport and attraction. They surveyed thousands of people to find out which sporting activities would make a member of the opposite sex more attractive.

The results revealed that 57% of women found climbing attractive, making it the sexiest sport from a female perspective. In second place was extreme sports (56%), followed by football (52%), and hiking (51%). At the bottom of their list came aerobics and golf, with just 9% and 13% of the vote, respectively.

Meanwhile, men revealed to be most attracted to women into aerobics (70%), followed by yoga (65%), and going to the gym (64%). Last on the list was 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 Murphy. '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!'
