What do women really look for in a potential partner?

Protection is essential when it comes to the bedroom.

What do men and women prefer most in a potential partner? According to one study, the results may not surprise you.

The study, conducted by the Chapman University in California found that gender plays a huge role in the desires of partners. 

Most of the men surveyed said they would prefer a woman with a "slender" figure, as opposed to only 50 percent of women who indicated the same. 97 percent of women instead said that a steady income was an important factor when it came to settling down, as opposed to only 74 percent of men.

Men and women who said they were satisfied with their own personal appearance placed a much more important emphasis on the appearance of their future partner.

Age also played a factor in this survey, as respondents indicated with older age that appearance, career or ultimate salary didn't matter as much as the person themselves.

As seen in common gender stereotypes, slender women and men with money seem to still be the most important facets to many, but that doesn't mean they are for everyone.

When it comes to potential partners and sex, it's important to remember protection. Today Sponge is an effective birth control with no hormones. Available over the counter, it is inserted vaginally before sex and remains viable for up to 24 hours of protection.

Unlike condoms, which must be changed with every intimate moment, or a pill that must be taken every day, Today Sponge only has to be used as needed, and doesn't need to be removed for each different encounter.
