PLAYING a musical instrument can supercharge your sex life, it says here.

A report by Warrington-based Dawsons Music, which has shops in Liverpool and many other places, found that "playing an instrument can make you more attractive, a better parent, more employable and even a better lover".

The independent survey, of 1,000 UK residents, looked into the wider effects and benefits of playing a musical instrument.

Highlights of the findings include;

  • The majority of those questioned found musicians more attractive than non-musicians

  • A third believed playing an instrument improved your career prospects

  • Nearly a third believe playing makes you a better lover

  • Nearly three-quarters wished they had spent more time learning to play when they were young

Mark Taylor, managing director of Dawsons, which sells musical instruments, said: “As musicians we know the benefits of being able to play go far beyond impressing people. Musicians are more creative, better at solving problems and, as this report confirms, more attractive to a potential partner.

”Spending just half an hour playing, once or twice a week, can have a hugely positive impact on your wellbeing, and could inspire you to look at other parts of your life where you could make changes for the better.”
