London: 46 percent of men in the UK placed sports at the top of the things that sets their heart racing while sex was ranked second, a study has revealed.
The study also revealed that the scariest thing that majority of men have done is ride a rollercoaster, and 12 percent of men surveyed said that they have never done anything risky, the Daily Star reported.
The most daredevil part of the UK is the south-west with 47 percent claiming that there is “nothing” they would not do for a thrill.
Northern Ireland is the least adventurous with only 14 percent wanting an adrenaline rush.
The research, which was conducted by OnePoll, and quizzed 1,000 men aged 18 to 34, also found that 75 percent men shied away from real danger.
But they often do “macho” things like carrying heavy items – 29 percent and eating spicy food that they do not enjoy – 23 percent.
The survey was commissioned to celebrate the release of extreme sports film ‘Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D.’
