Apparently we do, indeed, like big butts, and even researchers cannot lie.

Women with wider hips are more inclined to have one-night stands, according to a new British study.

Women in the study with hips wider than 36 cm had more sexual partners and one-night stands than women with hips measuring less than 31 cm.

As well, women who had one-night stands three of every four of their sexual relationships had hips at least 2 cm wider than those who did not have one-night stands as often.

The study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, looked at 148 women between the ages of 18 and 26 who had experience with at least one sexual partner.

"Women's hip width has a direct impact on their risk of potentially fatal childbirth-related injury. It seems that when women have control over their own sexual activity this risk is reflected in their behavior. Women's sexual activity is therefore at least in part influenced by hip width," the study's author, Colin Hendrie of the University of Leeds, said in a release.

Sorry, we had to add this throwback ...
