Ah, la France! The spiritual home of kissing, the bikini and the eternally sexy hit single Je t’aime.

For a nation fuelled almost entirely on oysters and champagne, you’d expect their chat-up lines to be as buttery as a pain au chocolat.  And you wouldn’t be far wrong.

“Pick-up lines are normally sophisticated,” claims Paris-local Audrey Manini. “The best I heard recently was ‘Voulez-vous coucher avec moi pour 1,000 euros?’ - Would you go to bed with me for 1,000 euros?”

“Then he said: ‘We have to hurry because I need the money urgently!’ This is quite topical I would say, especially with the financial crisis.”

Verdict: Stay on your toes, rosbif. The French blend sophistication with buckets of Gallic charm.
