Cultural habits, how people inform themselves and leisure activities vary between genders. With regard to reading, women read more books and magazines, while men more frequently read newspapers. Listening to the radio and playing video games are more male activities, as are listening to music and using the Internet, although both sexes frequently engage in these activities. Going to concerts, the cinema and the theatre are less common activities for both sexes to more or less the same extent. However one activity unarguably stands out above all others, with no significant difference between the sexes: watching television.
