"Its a hard decision but I think I would have to go with the  !  "    -   Susan

Choosing between a Bounty and a bonk just doesn't seem fair...

There's a lot to envy about French women - effortless style, sexy accents and a limitless supply of croissants at every corner (yet somehow, French women don't get fat. Freaking mystery). But we're not quite sure we agree with them on the whole sex versus chocolate debate.

According to a recent Harris Interactive Poll, French women said that eating chocolate can be even more pleasurable than the Big O. The 1,000-person survey asked French men and women about sex, food, pleasure, and happiness. Results revealed that, for women at least, chocolate was preferable to a little ooh-la-laaaa.

The participants were asked to rank the elements of well-being on a scale of 0 to 10, with men rating food at 7.2 and sex at 7.5. Women on the other hand, gave food a 7.0 and sex a lower score of 6.7. Both sexes rated chocolate as the most pleasurable food (followed closely by cheese and foie gras - quelle surprise!).

The majority of women (57 percent) also said that they would cut back on sex before they'd cut back on food (compared to just 39 percent of men). To be fair we're with them there. 

We love a good pain au chocolate, but why choose? With all the health benefits of chocolate and sex, we say enjoy them both! In a 2004 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Italian researchers concluded that women who ate chocolate had more desire and enjoyed sex more than women who ate no chocolate. It almost makes us want to revisit the idea of chocolate body paint. Almost.
