London: You may say what`s in a name, but
a new study has claimed that men called `Paul` and women named
`Catherine` are most likely to have a fling.
What`s a bit interesting is that researchers have
found that wife-swappers are more likely to be in their 20s
and well-educated rather than the stereotype of beer-bellied
blokes and bored housewives.
Lads named Andrew, David or Mark were among the most
likely to swap partners, as were girls called Clare, Sarah or
Emma, the study found.
The couples were most commonly white, middle-class
university graduates with careers in advertising, PR or the
media. And the majority were found to be in a long-term
relationship but not married, `The Sun` reported.
They indulge in their hobby about twice a month, the
poll for a swinging club found. Many travel for up to three
hours to parties in the UK`s swinging capital London -- as it
provides them with anonymity.
Mark Roberts, 39 - whose firm Fever Parties has hosted
60 bashes involving about 6,000 swingers over the past decade
- was quoted as saying: "Young people these days are a lot
more open-minded. It`s one of those things they want to do --
like going backpacking or to the theatre."
Roberts said Premier League aces had been refused
entry to his parties -- as they would draw attention.
