    I've been reading on some forums and articles about busking, and it is often mentioned that all other things being equal (time of day, location, instrument/act/songs/whatever, girls earn 2-3x more money than guys while busking.

    Why do you think people give more money to girls? I guess it's the same reason people are more eager to help girls in other ways - doing favours here and there. Do you think that people expect they might get laid if they chuck some extra cash to a female busker? That's the only reason I can think of, an expectation that they might win her heart.

    There's really no reason to pay a male busker anything, how could it benefit you? But girls might sleep with you.

    Do you reckon that explains it?

    Because she might smile at them as they give her the money, which is totally worth it.

    I'd have thought it was obvious. Although I would like to see stats on the gender of those who give to the busker and how much they give. See if those of the opposite sex of the busker are more likely to give.
