Ladies, forget fluttering your eyelashes or flicking your hair. The quickest way for a woman to gain a man's interest is by gently touching his arm, say psychologists.

As part of their study, researchers recruited a 20-year-old woman, rated 'averagely attractive' by a panel of 18 men, to approach 64 young, single males chosen at random in a bar.

She asked each of them to help her get a key into a key ring.

During half the encounters, the woman then touched the man for one or two seconds on his forearm before thanking him and returning to her table.

Researchers found a third of the men who had been touched struck up a conversation with the woman, but that only 16 per cent tried to talk to her if they had no physical contact.

"Numerous researchers have found that such brief non-verbal contact significantly increases compliance," the Daily Mail quoted Dr Nicolas Gueguen from the University of South Brittany, who led the study, as saying.
