Does a tramp stamp attract men? According to a new study from France, the answer is yes.

French psychiatrist Nicolas Guéguen had women lay out on a beach in a bikini. Sometimes they had a temporary tattoo on their lower back, sometimes they didn't.

The results? According to the Huffington Post:

The researchers found that men were much more likely to approach and make verbal contact with women sporting a lower back tattoo than those who were not. Furthermore, men were quicker in making their approach when the woman had a lower back tattoo than when she did not.

The study showed that 24% of the men who walked by approached the women with tattoos, but only 10% approached the women without them.

Researchers interviewed over 400 men in their 20s and found that they believed women with 'tramp stamps' are more likely to go out with them, are more likely to have sex on the first date and are more attractive.
