Men do not want their partners sunbathing topless but are happy to see other women baring all on the beach, according to a poll.

As many as 56% of men would not allow their partner to go topless while on holiday, the survey by travel agent www.sunshine.co.uk found.

But 89% of men said they had no problem with other women stripping off.

Of the women among the 2,392 people surveyed, 68% said they were prepared to go topless on the beach.

Of these, 78% said they would do it to avoid tan lines, while just 3% admitted to exhibitionism.

Of the mothers who took part in the survey, 66% had teenage children and, of these, 42% claimed they either had or would sunbathe topless in front of them on holiday. When asked if they would sunbathe topless in front of their teenager's friends or partners, 9% said they would.

Chris Brown, co-founder of sunshine.co.uk, said: "I think sunbathing topless is a taboo subject for many people, but a high number of women are evidently happy to do so."
