Man know more about cars than sex
Most men know more about what happens under their car bonnet than they do about their own bodies, according to a new survey.
Nine in ten were confident they could locate a car's oil dipstick but only half were able to identify key parts of their own anatomy.
Altogether 90% said they could locate a car's oil dipstick and 89% could point to the radiator, says research by the Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor.
But just 6% accurately identified the common causes of erectile dysfunction, with a third wrongly believing it was caused by wearing skinny jeans.
When asked to locate key sex organs, just 52% answered correctly in the survey of 1,500 men. Amazingly, one in 12 thought they were in the ear.
Dr Tom Brett, sexual health expert at Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor, said: "We all know that two of the most important things for many men are their sex life and their car.
"If the car's not performing properly, the British male is usually pretty confident he can get under the bonnet and solve the problem.
"But when it comes to the mechanics of their sex organs, men are clearly less likely to spot a potential problem."
what do you think?
Well, mabey if men were offered half the amount of checks women are offered then they may know.

very true Robert
That's what Saturday nights are for, Robert lol
Perhaps your laydee could offer you some checks? ;-)
"a third wrongly believing it was caused by wearing skinny jeans." LOL! Surely they were just saying that as a joke because they didn't have any other answers?
The fact that one of the options was "in the ear" kind of makes me question the credibility of the study..
Who said it was multiple choice
That's true but if it were multiple choice, I could see some men selecting "ear" because it's so rediculous. Otherwise, of the 1,500 surveyed, 125 blokes got it a bit wrong haha
I can only assume that they questioned some dweebs. Who on Earth wouldn't recognise a car radiator or dipstick (male or female)?! Happily, my man knows plenty about sex and we have a local garage man who looks after the cars.
Poor guy in the garage obviously knows nothing about sex lol
At least your man and the garage have one thing in common.and that is they both know how to use their nuts.
Ha ha ha @ both!
we all know that two of the most important things for many women are their shoes and their chocolate
Not having that!!! Hoover and duster fella :0))
Youve forgotten the sink.
Shoes,yes! Chocolate?! No! I'll choose my xbox over a box of choccys any day!
Despite all the things we know today, I think humanity in general is actually getting stupider as time passes...
I know where both dipsticks are.
Yea and we all believe this survey dont we !!! What a load of old tosh ,anything to degrade men .I know a number of men who have been to doctors about personal mens issues and have been treated with total disrespect and told they dont need check ups ,totaly agree with Robert ,Men are not offered the same health checks as women and certainly dont have the same opportunities for check ups .If we go to docs we are dismissed and if we dont we are told we dont care about our bodies and know nothing about them,we are dammed if we do and dammed if we dont .Bet if the same lame questions where asked to Women you would get the same answers ,the only difference is they would not be publisized
Football, cars, beer and women................in that order.
