Press Release: March 16, 2010
The North East of England has been voted the region with the Best Lovers in the UK, in a survey of female daters.
It narrowly beat London and the South East in a poll conducted by Forget Dinner, a casual online dating site www.forgetdinner.co.uk
The firm polled over 2000 of its female members from a cross section of the country in a bid to find both the best and worst lovers in the UK by region.
The North East was named as the region with the Best Lovers in the UK. It narrowly out-pointed London & the South East, which was well ahead of Scotland and Wales and West in joint third place.
Yorkshiremen were named the Worst Lovers in the UK narrowly taking last place ahead of males from the West Country and the Border regions.
In the same poll, respondents were given the option to explain their choice and the following comments about each region were collected.
Lovers from the North East were considered to be attentive.
London lovers were labelled as eager to please.
Yorkshiremen were dismissed as lazy in bed.
We are often told that other countries make better lovers than the British so we decided to carry out our own research, says Howard James, the founder of Forget Dinner. We are pleased for the North East and ask all Yorkshiremen who might be a little lazy in bed to take note. It was also interesting to see that the majority of women voted for regions other than the one they actually live in.
