Couples to avoid this Christmas


With tonight being the traditional night for couples in Japan, goo Ranking conducted a survey into what kinds of couples ruin the Christmas mood.


Between the 5th and 7th of November 2012 1,049 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 58.8% of the sample were female, 10.2% in their teens, 14.6% in their twenties, 27.5% in their thirties, 25.1% in their forties, 11.0% in their fifties, and 11.7% 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.

As you can see from the list below, inappropriate snogging seems to be quite a turn-off for those around them. Here’s a couple who better not get any closer and risk number 14…
