Women in their 70s value sexual chemistry in a partner more than women in their 40s, according to new research.

一项新研究发现,与40多岁时相比,女人在70多岁时更看重伴侣的性吸引力。

The value women place on sexual attraction dips in middle age but returns after retirement1, it is claimed.

The survey, conducted by parenting website Netmums and the magazine Saga2, asked 9,000 women aged3 16 to 75 what exactly they look for in a long-term partner.

It also found that young women today are seeking a tall, dark, handsome, ambitious(有雄心的) and rich stranger while the older generation are far more concerned with kindness, reliability4 and friendship when it comes to their idea of the perfect partner.

Emma Soames, editor at large of Saga Magazine, said: "The results provide some intriguing5(有趣的) insights into real relationships across the generations.

"It's reassuring6 to see that over 50, the desire for sexual chemistry returns, showing that women still value the thing that brought them together with their partner in the first place.

"It is surprising, however, that fewer place importance on honesty than their younger counterparts.

"Perhaps after many years in a relationship a sense of realism and pragmatism(实用主义) is more important than honesty to keep a relationship on track - that and a lower rate of infidelity and thus less suspicion of cheating in this age group."

Top of the wish-list for young women came honesty. However, for the older generation honesty is not the best policy. Less than half of the older women polled were bothered about their man telling the truth at all costs and would prefer a few kind words instead.

For almost half the young women polled, romance is far from dead - at least, that's what they hope. Nearly half (49 percent) admitted that finding someone prepared to wine and dine them was top of their wish-list.

Ambition came in second place, with 21 percent saying that they were after a man who had his sights set high.

Michael Buble and George Clooney are favourite males among the older generation, but when it comes to finding a partner for life, older women are not bothered by a beautiful face. Three times more young women were interested in how attractive their partner is.aa
