LONDON, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A British survey suggests women prefer "real men" with beer bellies and hairy chests to "metrosexuals" with tight shorts and manicures.

The survey of 5,192 women, conducted by Lion Bar Ice Cream, found 80 percent of respondents now consider metrosexual traits including hair straightening and frequent sunbathing to be turn-offs, The Sun reported Tuesday.

The poll also found one in 10 women questioned in the survey like the smell of beer on a man while a fifth of those polled said they are attracted to men with "a bit of body odor."

"This is great news for real men this summer," a Lion Bar spokesman said. "They can get their roar back and ditch the moisturizer, manicures and tight shorts this summer -- leave that for the footballers.

"British blokes can also wear their Speedos with pride, even if they have a bit of belly and welcome the wolf whistles as they walk down the beach," he said.
