Among the revelations of the study, which “surveyed 2,500 Britons to find out how their musical tastes related to their lifestyles and interests”:
*38 percent of hiphop fans were more likely to have had more than one sexual partner in the last five years (compared to just 1.5 percent of country music fans).
*25 percent of the survey’s classical music fans have tried cannabis, while 12 percent of those who cotton to opera have experimented with psychedelic mushrooms.
