Musicians listed as most sexy profession as footballers placed at bottom

London, Jan 30 (ANI): It was previously assumed that most women would jump at the opportunity to date David Beckham, but this may not be the case if the latest research is anything to go by.

A new survey asked women what they thought the sexiest profession was for a partner and the top result has been revealed as a musician or artist, while footballers come last with just 1 percent of voters finding the athletic profession sexy, the Daily Mail reported.

In second place was men who work in the financial service sector, with the study describing them as ambitious, confident and intelligent.

Professional footballers earned their place at the bottom of the chart because women viewed them as over-confident, vain, self-absorbed and as having a bad reputation.

Other professions that made the "hot" list include teachers, doctors and writers/journalists.

Teachers were described as inspiring, caring and interesting whilst doctors where seen to be professional, motivated and protective.

Women also found writers/journalists attractive, describing them as creative, artistic and informed.

So, despite not earning a footballers wage they, along with accountants, teachers and doctors could be next to attract the most glamorous WAG's.

Top 5 sexiest professions are:

Musician/Artist (32 percent)

Financial Services (24 percent)

Teacher (13 percent)

Doctor (9 percent)

Writer/Journalist (7 percent) (ANI)
