The survey, which posed questions over sex, health and women on behalf of pharmaceutical firm Pfizer, indicates that 43 percent of Swedish men experience difficulty understanding what women really want.
Typical male sex fantasies are reported to range from sex outdoors, oral sex, and sex with colleagues. Other carnal activities of choice include anal sex, sex toys and sex with the neighbour, while by far the favourite fantasy was sex with more than one woman.
The sample of 2,112 men aged 20-80-years-old, overwhelmingly opted for bums and breasts as the most attractive features on a woman.
While more than a third of respondents argued that age has no bearing on the female lure, the younger men in the survey tended to prefer women in their forties and fifties, while every other other man aged over 51 said that age was of no relevance.
Hockey legend Börje Salming was tipped as the “Sweden’s most manly man”, closely followed by strongman Magnus Samuelsson, and actors Dolph Lundgren and Mikael Persbrandt.
Self-assurance was cited as the most manly feature.
According to the survey two out of three men claimed to think about sex at least once a day, with two percent claiming to have sex on average several times a day. Nine percent of respondents meanwhile admitted to never having sex.
