Romantic Music Likely to Convince Women to Give it Up!

If romantic music is playing, a woman is almost twice as likely to give an “average” guy her phone number than if the background tunes are neutral, a new study shows. French researchers played a song considered romantic and another deemed neutral while 18- to 20-year-old women interacted with male volunteers ranked average in attractiveness, LiveScience reports. The subjects who heard the flirtier tune parted with their digits more easily.

The women and the “average joes” discussed the difference between two food products. Each man then recited a line written by the researchers asking for his counterpart’s phone number to set up a coffee date. More than half of women who listened to the romantic song agreed, but only 28% of those who listened to the neutral song gave up their phone numbers.

    There’s a reason Barry White’s been playing in backgrounds for decades.
