More than half of women in UK admit to flirting with men to get their own way, with a fifth saying they do so at work, according to a new study.
A survey of 2,000 people also found that 39 per cent of male managers admitted to employing a female candidate based on their level of attractiveness.
As many as thirty per cent of the female respondents even said they used sex as a "reward" for good treatment from their partner or husband, the 'Daily Mail' reported.
The poll results show almost 20 per cent men said they had gone on to have a relationship with someone they had employed and three in five employers – 57 per cent – said they gave preferential treatment to attractive employees.
Asked "Are you more likely to give way to an attractive motorist?" 42 per cent of men replied "yes" – in comparison with 16 per cent of women who replied in affirmative.
The survey was commissioned by comparison website Confused.com which said it wanted to investigate gender bias and positive discrimination, the report said.
"So much focus nowadays is placed on how women can be seen as equals in the workplace without gender coming into play. But our results show that despite this, many women will turn to their feminine wiles to help themselves get ahead, should the situation call for it," Sharon Flaherty, spokesman of the company, said.
