Making a good grilled cheese is an important skill to look for in a lover

Apparently in lieu of something better to study, a team of researchers have looked into the relationships between grilled cheese sandwich consumption and people's sex lives.

4,600 people were surveyed by dating site Skout, which found that 73% of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least once a month, compared with 63% for those who aren't into that delicious mess of bread and cheese.

32% of grilled cheese eaters have sex at least six times a month meanwhile, compared with 27% for the grilled cheese-less.

I always question respondents' honesty when it comes to their sex lives, but if you're willing to join me in not pissing on the parade we can now assume that people who eat grilled cheeses are generally very gregarious, sexual beings.

Perhaps more interesting was the study's section on cheeses used in the sandwiches.

American was favoured by 41%, followed by cheddar (33%), mozzarella (10%), Swiss (8%), provolone (6%) and brie (2%, who the hell uses brie?)

N.B – In case you're drooling, that grilled cheese in the photo is from Grill My Cheese in London.
