goo Ranking had a look at the charms of plump guys; I’ll keep my eyes open for the female equivalent, of course!


Over the 5th and 6th of October 2012 1,064 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 58.2% of the sample were female, 10.5% in their teens, 13.7% in their twenties, 26.6% in their thirties, 27.6% in their forties, 11.7% in their fifties, and 9.9% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. This question was for the females only.

I cannot think of anything to add to this, so here instead is someone looking fat and gentle…
