Members of the free dating website were asked the question, Would you date a porn star?. More than half the men surveyed said they would date a porn star compared to only 7% of women. Unsurprisingly, those who said they were using dating sites for fun were the most likely (58%) to date a porn star.

Having establshed the nations willingness to date a porn star, Smooch.com asked members whether they would be willing to marry one. Whilst the percentage of those willing to marry a porn star declined, surprisingly nearly 30% of men said they would marry a porn star. Nevertheless, the ratio between men and women remained the same; as with dating a porn star, seven times more men (28%) said they would marry a porn star than women (4%).

Arguably, although more members would choose to date a porn star, than to marry one, the results suggest that not all of the members who would date a porn star were motivated by sexual desire. Thus it would appear that in a reversal of the historically traditional position, men are more accepting of a sexually experienced partner than women.

Additional information:
Smooch surveys are extremely detailed, incorporating information about its respondents as detailed as facial hair and weight, allowing us to unearth the following strange facts.

* Moustaches were arguably a requirement for men in the adult industry during the 70s. Nowadays, men with beards are more than twice as likely to date a porn star than men with moustaches.
* Think lads mag centrefold and you instantly think blonde; however only 23% of blondes would date a porn star compared to 40% of those with black hair.
* People who described themselves as average looking were less likely to marry a porn star (19%) compared to 38% of users who described themselves as stunning.
* Low wage earners are far less likely (25%) to fantasize about the plumber than those with a high range salary (64%).
* Members aged 31-35 were the most likely to date a porn star (42%), and those aged 36-40 were the most likely to marry a porn star (24%). Either side of these age groups agreement gradually declines, though it is unlikely for the same reasons.
