Why Women Smoke Cigars
Why do women smoke cigars? The reasons may differ from the reasons that men smoke them. Research conducted by the Association for Women Cigar Smokers in cooperation with Cigar Research found that 97% of men feel peaceful when smoking cigars but only 76% of women feel that way. Instead as Cigar Cyclopedia reports "women responded that they feel powerful (24%), attractive (25%), strong (15%), fun (43%), and rebellious (22%) when cigar smoking." Men reported these same feelings in lower numbers.
The survey also revealed that women are overwhelmingly brand loyal and that although they buy cigars online they also shop in stores where they feel welcome and are not treated as amateurs. They are also mostly not swayed by box or label design and 59% of the women surveyed said their motivation for smoking cigars was what I think is the best reason of all, the taste.
