A ranking of the types of man Japanese women would like to try dating suggests most would like to be hunted down and ravaged like lambs, whilst the least popular choice of man should by now come as no surprise.

The ranking:

1. Carnivorous guys (5124 votes) [the opposite of a herbivorous man]

2. Sporty guys (2398 votes)

3. Bespectacled guys (1627 votes)

4. Herbivorous guys (1377 votes) [a detailed description can be found here]

5. “Iku-men” (1217 votes) [men who take an active and equal interest in childcare – the “iku” is a pun on the character for “rearing,” “育” or “iku,” and the long established slang “ikemen,” meaning a handsome man]

6. Science guys (1176 votes)

7. Sweet-tooth guys (977 votes) [men with an enthusiastic liking for sweet things]

8. Bento guys (968 votes)

9. Other guys (913 votes)

10. Otaku guys (381 votes)

For those wondering, “otaku” is of course dead last, there being no more than 10 options offered.
