Thirty percent of women in Seoul are willing to kiss on a first date, a recent survey revealed, compared to five percent in Shanghai and 15 percent in Tokyo.

The sample size is very small, however. Advertising agency Cheil Worldwide surveyed 100 women each in the three cities about their dating preferences.

Among women who were willing to kiss on a first date, 14 percent said they would accept a “light” kiss.

Meanwhile, 12 percent of participants in Seoul were willing to sleep with a partner on a first date, compared to one percent in Shanghai and nine percent in Tokyo.
