Britney Spears' frequent show of skin and more notwithstanding men find her one of the Unsexiest Woman Alive. Topping the list of celebrities who don't turn on men is 'Sex and the City' actress Sarah Jessica Parker.
The 'Sex and the City' actress, who is most famous for her role as sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw in the hit US TV show, was given the dubious honor in the online poll by men's website maxim.com.
In a scathing attack on the 42-year-old actress, Maxim.com writers - who compiled the poll - likened Sarah Jessica to famous US racehorses Barbaro and Secretariat and insisted they would rather get up close and personal with her 'Sex and the City' co-star Chris Noth.
One Maxim.com writer said: "How the hell did this Barbaro-faced broad manage to be the least sexy woman in a group of very unsexy women and still star on a show with "sex" in the title?
"Pull your skirt down, Secretariat, we would rather ride your co-star Chris Noth!"
Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse - whose beehive hair and prominent eyeliner has been copied by teenage girls worldwide - finished in second place.
Another Maxim.com writer revealed: "When we first heard this chick boast about her reluctance to go to rehab we thought, now there is a girl we can party with! But upon beholding her openly hemorrhaging translucent skin, rat’s nest mane and lashes that look more like surgically attached bats, we were the ones screaming, 'Nooo, nooo, nooo!' "
'Grey's Anatomy' star Sandra Oh is in third place, while 49-year-old "menopausal" singer Madonna finished fourth and was ridiculed for her adoption of Malawi boy David Banda.
The survey said of Madonna: "Madonna traded pioneering sexuality for, like other old Jewish women, self-righteous bellyaching and rapid postnuptial deterioration.
"Combine a Paris Hilton-like pet accessorizing fetish - only for dirt-poor foreign babies - with a mug that looks Euro-sealed to her skull, and you've got Willem Dafoe with hot flashes."
Britney Spears - whose behavior has spiraled out of control this year with her wild partying, drug taking, shaving her head and bizarre performance at the MTV Video Music Awards - rounded up top five.
One Maxim.com contributor claimed: "Britney has lost the ability to perform, but gained two kids, two useless ex-husbands, and about 23 pounds of pudge."

Natalie Portman has vowed that she will never strip again for screen after filming a risqué scene for her new short movie "Hotel Chevalier".
Portman's nude shots will soon be available on the Internet even before the film is officially released. And she is upset that she agreed to do something that was awkward in the prelude to "The Darjeeling Limited" directed by Wes Anderson, contactmusic.com reports.
Portman has insisted that she was convinced that nude scenes were required for the movie.
Portman, who requested director Mike Nichols to cut the nudity from "Closer" and used a body double for "Goya's Ghosts', said that she felt it was right to do bare scenes in the latest film.
She said, "I don't know why, exactly. Sometimes you make rules for yourself and sometimes those rules are made to be broken. You have to test things out and see what works for you, and this felt right.
"I'm really sorry I didn't listen to my intuition. From now on, I'm going to trust my gut more. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is to say no."
The Academy-award nominated star also said that she urged director Wes Anderson to give her a chance to work with him.
"I begged Wes to work with me and show me a script. I really loved it. He has the finest taste possible," she said.

R&B superstar Alicia Keys has realized why she was branded a lesbian at the beginning of her career - because she was "rough around the edges".
Keys' sexuality became the subject of speculation after the release of her debut album 'Songs In A Minor' in 2001.
However, the singer has been adamant she isn't a lesbian but has admitted that her appearance and attitude may have led people to think so.
"I was definitely rough around the edges. I look back at certain interviews and I'm like, 'Damn! Did I have to look that hard? Did I have to do my hair that way?' The Sun quoted Keys, as saying.
"I could see why people couldn't see the diamond in the rough.
"I didn't take it to heart. I know what I am. I know it's not true," she added.

PAMELA ANDERSON tells OK! magazine that her whirlwind romance with Rick Salomon started off as a poker game debt. “‘Rick, being the gentleman, said he would wipe out my debt if I gave him a kiss,” recalled Anderson, who confessed she owed Salomon, of “One Night in Paris” sex-tape fame, $250,000. “So I have to thank Vegas for our relationship switching gears!” The former “Baywatch” babe and her future ex-husband, have been buddies for 17 years and, according to Salomon, 15 of those years he spent pining for the blond beauty. “I’ve been plotting and scheming for the past 15 years and I finally got the girl.” The couple was hitched Oct. 6 in a villa at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.
The Toxic singer - who has been frequently pictured in public without panties on - knows it is "stupid" to go out without underwear but just doesn't feel comfortable in it.
Jewellery designer Tuesday Knight, who has been friends with Britney since 2003, said her decision not to wear underwear was "ridiculous".
"I've told her. I've said, 'You can't walk into a store wearing just a shirt with your underwear off, or get out of cars baring all'. I've told her that no one will take her seriously when she does this.
"Britney knows it's stupid, but says she just doesn't like to wear underwear. She doesn't feel comfortable with it on."
The 25-year-old mother-of-two, who has lost custody of sons Sean Preston, two and one-year-old Jayden James to ex-husband Kevin Federline, can't understand why people think she is a bad role model.
Tuesday added to In Touch Weekly magazine: "Britney has always been a good mother. I want people to know that she's the better parent - not Kevin!
"Britney asked me, 'Doesn't anybody get to see this part of me?' The answer is, no, they don't. People just read about her not wearing underwear.
"I knew Britney when she and Kevin first met. She remade her entire life so it was all about him. She didn't even want to sign a prenup. Since then, I've watched her spiral downward."
Britney was photographed several times earlier this year without underwear, one of several incidents leading to rumours of a meltdown.

The former 'Friends' beauty has a crush on the James Bond actor and fantasizes that she is a government spy who gets up close and personal with special agent 007.
Jennifer said: "I'd be a spy, a very glamorous spy who plays poker and lives in Monaco. And has affairs with Daniel Craig."
Jennifer - who split from husband Brad Pitt in 2005 - is keen to move to New York to get away from the constant scrutiny she's under in Los Angeles.
The 38-year-old actress - who was recently rumored to have purchased a Manhattan apartment - said: "I can actually visualize it again, for some reason. I don't know, I'm just tired of Los Angeles. In New York, you're not just in that same car, looking at that same dashboard, driving down the same street.
"In New York, if you can get away from the paparazzi and they don't know where you are, you can actually walk, walk, walk!"
Jennifer has also decided not to worry what the public think of her.
She added to Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I used to care a hell of a lot more about what people said or thought. But that had to change when my life was under a microscope being scrutinized and my personal life was being talked about. You have to go, 'This is not acceptable in any way,' whether it's about me personally or in business, success versus failure. It's so negative. It's such bizarre negativity."
Socialite heiress Paris Hilton has supposedly grown up and is vowing to change her image by using her name and fame for good causes.
Her first stop is Rwanda where she will visit schools and health care clinics as part of a five-day charity mission. She will be accompanied by a children's charity called Playing for Good.
Dailysnack.com reports her as saying: "I'm scared, yeah. I've heard it's really dangerous. I've never been on a trip like this before.
I love having everything documented. It shows people what everyday life is like for me, how hard I work. There are a lot of misconceptions about me."
Hilton was in jail for 23 days for breaking her violation in a drunk and reckless driving case.
Commenting upon her reckless lifestyle, she said: "There are a lot of bad people in LA.
Before, my life was about having fun, going to parties - it was a fantasy. But when I had time to reflect, I felt empty inside. I want to leave a mark on the world."

Eva Longoria, the star of "Desperate Housewives", has been banned from having children by the show's bosses.
Longoria recently married basketball star Tony Parker but will have to wait at least a year before they can think of having children, reports mirror.co.uk.
The show's creator Marc Cherry doesn't want to go through the same complications as when Longoria's co-star Marcia Cross got pregnant.
Longoria said: "Marc's not kidding because he maps the year out and really knows the storyline. When Marcia became pregnant it was unexpected and it was hard for him to write around.
Tony and I are excited about starting a family, but because Marc has forbidden me to get pregnant this year we're going to spend time as a married couple and build a solid foundation together before we bring our child into the world."

Women wishing to spice up their love lives may now find a sex guru in model/actress Kelly Brook, as she has some potent bedroom tips.
She says that one should not rush to turn off the lights when it comes to seducing a partner.
She insists that illuminating the bedroom with a fluorescent strip-light or a subtle candlelight can be incredibly flattering.
Brook strongly feels that a woman who is ready to get intimate should celebrate the fact that her partner wants to be with her, and enjoy the confidence that comes with it, the Mirror reports.
She has also insisted that women should always remember that men hardly notice the bits women are conscious about. Instead he is more interested in the sparkle in his partner’s eyes, the smile she breaks into when he gives a compliment and the way her body responds to his.
The swimwear designer said that women should maintain a level of mystery, and therefore she suggested taking some time to master the art of undressing.
She further added that whether a woman undresses for her man or he undresses her, do it slowly and enjoy discovering what lies below.
The 27-year-old designer emphasized on wearing beautiful, soft-to-the-touch clothing that feels good against the skin, such as velvet, cashmere, Angora or satin.
She also recommended not to put too much of perfume, for it could be a turn-off to men because they tend to prefer women’s natural smell.
However, she thinks that there is something incredibly seductive about freshly bathed, delicately scented skin.
Therefore, she said that women, if get a chance, should enjoy a long soak and go for a lightly fragranced moisturizer or body oil before getting dressed.
Charlize Theron has been named the 'Sexiest Woman in the World' by Esquire magazine.
Theron now appears on the cover of the mag's November issue in a slinky photo shoot by Sheryl Nields.
As for why the mag chose the South African beauty, well that's not only because of her stunning looks, but also her stellar career.
She won an Oscar for Monster.
And she's not only ready to take a dig at herself, but also at politicians such has US President George Bush, reports the New York Daily News.
Theron recently said: "I grew up in a country that learned the lesson that you can't impose your way of life on 26 different kinds of people just because you call yourself righteous. I think there are lessons this country still has to learn."

Pamela Anderson’s one and a half hour wedding to her friend of fifteen years Rick Salomon Saturday, October 6, was arranged in such a hurry, that she wore a white denim miniskirt and the wedding cake was made of cardboard.
The wedding in a private villa at Las Vegas' Mirage Hotel and Casino took place in between two performances of Hans Klok's magic show, where she is the assistant, reports E! Online.
The wedding planners were only given a day’s notice and the best they could come up with in that time was a four-tier cardboard cake!
A source told US TV channel E!: "Pamela and Rick had a fake four-tier wedding cake. It was made from cardboard because planners weren't able to find a real one in time. They were apparently only given a day to prepare."
The hotel's Stack restaurant provided the 60 guests - including Tobey Maguire, magician Hanks Klok, Pamela's sons, Brandon, 11, and nine-year-old Dylan, and Rick's daughters, Hunter, 11, and Tyson, nine - with pigs in blankets, macaroni cheese, tuna and lobster tacos and 10 bottles of Cristal champagne.
As soon as the wedding was completed Pamela dashed back for her second appearance of the night and shared the news with the audience.
"Hello, I just got married - I did. I'm distracted. It's a big day. A big day at the office."
Guests continued partying late into the night at the Mirage hotel's Jet nightclub.
The marriage happens to be the third for both of them, with the mum of two’s earlier marriages include Tommy Lee and Kid Rock, while Salomon was married to actresses Shannen Doherty and Elizabeth Daily.

The burglars who raided Britney's Beverly Hills home Friday night went for Britney's collection of raunchy homemade sex tapes and a selection of the singer's steamiest photographs rather than cash and jewelry.
Also missing are some of the uniforms Britney allegedly wears for kinky sex games and personal pictures of her sons, two-year-old Sean Preston, and one-year-old Jayden James, were also taken.
"Some people might have gone first for the cash and jewelry, but these guys went first for all Britney's personal stuff," an insider told the Daily Star.
"They seemed to know in the long run this will be worth far more to them, if they can sell it to the highest bidder.
"Britney is beside herself with worry - having your home broken into is bad enough for anybody, but when you're famous and you have had some pretty personal things taken, it's 10 times worse,' the source said.
The 25-year-old star discovered that her $6 million gated property had been burgled when she returned home from a night out at the five-star Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel at around 2am early Saturday morning.
However, this is not the first time the 'Toxic' star has been hit by a sex tape scandal.
Last week, a 26-year-old man claimed that he had recorded the singer having sex in Hawaii.
In 2006, a clip showing the 25-year-old performing a sex act on ex-husband Kevin Federline appeared.

George Clooney is using a 'Liberator Sex Ramp' to aid love making after being injured in a motorbike crash.
The Hollywood heartthrob and girlfriend Sarah Larson appear to need a little extra help in the bedroom after Clooney was photographed leaving his New York townhouse carrying the purple sloped sex cushion on Wednesday.
A source said: "George is suffering a little from his fractured rib and Sarah has her leg in plaster because of her broken toe so they've bought something to make having sex a little more comfortable."
The Sex Ramp Sex Cushion is available on the internet for $149.00 and comes in blue, purple, red, tan and leopard print.
It claims it can "elevate your lovemaking 10 to 14 inches for more options off the side of the bed and superior doggie-style position.
"The Sex Ramp is engineered to support two bodies in motion, it's the stabiliser that elevates Sex Ramp Sex Cushion beyond vanilla pillow status."
The 46-year-old actor and the 28-year-old cocktail waitress were injured after George's bike collided with a car in Weehawken, New Jersey, on September 21.
