Coldplay fans are least likely to have sex on a first date than fans of a slew of other acts - according to a new survey. Music-based dating website Tastebuds.fm, which matches potential partners based on their taste in music, has carried out the research.
They asked users how far they’d likely go on a first date. Users were given the options of "I’d only meet up for a chat", "Perhaps a kiss" and "I’d go all the way if the mood was right."
Answers were then matched with users' tastes in music, leaving Tastebuds with the result that on average Coldplay fans were the least likely to have sex on a first date, while Nirvana fans were the most likely. Other acts with average fan responses in the 'Least Likely' category included Adele, Lady Gaga and Kings Of Leon, while fans of Metallica, Linkin Park and Kanye West were high in the 'Most Likely' category.
Says NYMag: Perhaps this study should have also been broken down by gender; we think the salient "statistic" that has been uncovered here is that women won't tell dating sites they'll bang on a first date but men will.
The results were:
Least Likely to 'go all the way'
3. Lady Gaga
4. Katy Perry
5. Kings Of Leon
3. Linkin Park
4. Kanye West
