Post MOST effective way to get a woman into bed is by running yourself down, say scientist

His wry, self- deprecating humour is as important as his floppy hair and English charm at ensuring he always wins the heart of his leading lady.

Now scientists have discovered the technique used by Hugh Grant's film characters can bring the same romantic success offscreen.

Taking the mickey out of yourself works far better than clever jokes, which might be seen as boastful and put women off.

The findings were outlined by anthropologist Gil Greengross, who conducted a two-year study into the role of humour in seduction.

He discovered that the type of humour used by Hugh Grant in the film Notting Hill - in which he attempts to charm Julia Roberts with the poor contents of his fridge - works the best.

'Many studies show that a sense of humour is sexually attractive, especially to women,' he said.

'But we've found that self-deprecating humour is the most attractive of all.

'It is a risky form of humour because it can draw attention to one's real faults, thereby diminishing the self-deprecator's status in the eyes of others.

'But based on the idea that verbal humour evolved to function as a fitness indicator, self-deprecating humour can be an especially reliable indicator, not only of general intelligence and verbal creativity, but also moral virtues such as humility.'

Before putting too much stock in their analysis, I want to know when the last time these scientists got laid....

If women went by sense of humor, I'd be friggin' Hugh Hefner...

The most effective way to get a woman into bed is to look like Hugh Grant...

I agree that having the same type of sense of humor is very important to "connect" with another person. Which is the first step to getting laid.

It's funny but I was attracted to my husband because he has a great sense of humor and a great personality. I made the mistake of telling him that once thinking it was a compliment and he was quite offended... he seemed to think that it was his animal magnetism,

Men and women are different that way. Men are visual (which is why we have the make up, high heels, pantyhose, etc. I know you don't think we wear all that for our health), but women are drawn in by personality. You may look like Hugh Grant, but if you're an ass you're not getting very far on that alone. and a smart ass is still an ass, (joke)

By the same token you may have a great personality, but if your a$$ is stickin' out the top of your belt line, you better keep some 1-900 numbers handy, cause you ain't gettin' date.

I must disagree. I had a co-worker who was a very heavy size 14 with a great personality. She dressed to her body type, had tons of dates, and married before she was 25. It is in the attitude and having some fashion sense. Of course if your ass or any body fat is sticking out of your clothes, that's just gross,

Agreed about the weight thing. No I didn't mean fat, I meant unfashionably naked.

And sadly so many women seem to think that it's attractive, Hip huggers combined with belly rings are meant for size 2's and 4's only, If you're a Queen Latifah, please don't dress like Shakira,
