A United Kindom-based website has conducted an online survey asking users to rank 648 sitting Britain MPs in order of who they'd like to sleep with. Sexymp.co.uk has raised eyebrows for its unique survey, which requires rating 506 male and 142 female MPs as per their attractiveness and sex appeal.

So far, the top places are dominated by the new intake of 2010 MPs. The top 16 spots went to women when rediff last visited the website.

Luciana Berger

Leading the female camp was Labour's Luciana Berger. The Liverpool Wavertree MP had a shaky start as a candidate at the general election after she confessed to not knowing who local football legend Bill Shankly was. But she definitely is popular with the website voters.

Perry Mordaunt

Conservative MP Perry Mordaunt (Portsmouth North) enjoyed a top spot only to pushed to the second rank by Berger. In the 2010 general election, she won the seat with a 8.6 per cent swing from Labour, giving her a 7,289 majority.

Interestingly, Mordaunt participated in a Vanity Fair photo shoot during March 2010. The photoshoot, dubbed by the UK's Daily Mail as featuring 'Cameron's Cuties', featured Mordaunt posing in designer attire, alongside twelve other female, Conservative, prospective parliamentary candidates.

Amanda Platell, writing in the newspaper, was fiercely critical of the stunt, arguing that many candidates such as Mordaunt "have been chosen for the wrong reason -- to carry David Cameron's message that the Tories have changed. Not changed their principles, but their appearance."

Jeremy Hunt 

Jeremy Hunt, the Culture Secretary was the only cabinet minister to make it in the top 50, ranking sixth at one stage.

"I don't think sites like this are particularly desirable or helpful. We should be judged by what we say and what we do, not on our appearance. It can deter people from becoming MPs if there is too much of this sort of thing," the Daily Mail quoted Sheila Gilmore, a Labour MP as saying.

The site has been created by Francis Boulle, an entrepreneur who has appeared on the reality television show Made in Chelsea. He claims it will help people to get to know their Parliamentary representative but admits that it is likely to cause offence.

* The ratings can change every few hours because they depend on constant votes from the public.
