Best in the bedroom: Survey reveals tradesmen make the best lovers

It’s like an old wives’ tale that tradesmen are good with their hands, so we wanted to put that to the test. This kind of research is certainly different to the sort of thing we usually do here at MaterialsMarket.com but we know this kind of fun study will appeal to our customers – many of whom are tradespeople. 

The results were very insightful – it was revealed that three quarters (74%) of tradespeople are more ’skilled’ with their hands than other professions. 

We surveyed 2,000 people from across the UK to collate the data and asked the participants to spill the beans on their love lives and how good their partners are between the sheets. We asked all of those surveyed what jobs their partners do and to rate their overall bedroom experiences.

The full list of the top 20 professions that make the best lovers, as voted by Brits are:

  1. Plasterer
  2. Electrician
  3. Teacher
  4. Mechanic
  5. Builder
  6. Graphic designer
  7. Architect
  8. Plumber
  9. Personal trainer
  10. Accountant
  11. Gardener
  12. Carpenter
  13. Mortgage adviser 
  14. Nurse
  15. Chef
  16. Cleaner
  17. Dentist
  18. Retail assistant
  19. Call centre operator 
  20. Lawyer

We had fun conducting this survey and we hope this story brings a laugh to the workplace. Not only that, perhaps the findings might help singletons in their search for a potential partner, as who knows maybe a profession is much more than just a job!
