SHY Brits have con­fessed they are too shy to have sex un­less they are DRUNK!

More than one in 10 cou­ples who live to­gether say they haven’t had “sober” nookie in six months.

That’s ac­cord­ing to new re­search by an on­line phar­macy which sug­gests cou­ples sim­ply “aren’t in the mood” for a bonk with­out Dutch courage.

All those tak­ing part were asked to state when they had last had sex with their loved one, to which 96 per cent claimed they had done so within the past six months.

They were then asked: “When did you last make love to your part­ner with­out be­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol?”

The ma­jor­ity (52%) an­swered “within the past month”, while 11 per cent said “over six months ago”. Those who claimed not to have made love to their part­ner sober in the past six months were asked why they be­lieved it was the case.

Sixy six per cent claimed that they sim­ply “aren’t in the mood un­less un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol”, while 18 per cent ad­mit­ted that they drank reg­u­larly with their part­ner so were usu­ally tipsy when it came to bonking.

Just un­der half (48%) claimed that it had “neg­a­tively af­fected” their sex lives.

Sarah Bai­ley of UKMedix.com, who car­ried out the poll, said: “We Bri­tons love our booze – in re­spon­si­ble mea­sures, of course – but it seems that we may be let­ting the al­co­hol come be­tween us and our part­ner in the bed­room.

“It was shock­ing to see that as many as one in 10 cou­ples haven’t made love sober in over six months.

“While there’s not nec­es­sar­ily any­thing wrong with this, our re­sults show that many think booze af­fects the qual­ity of our love­mak­ing in a neg­a­tive way, and so it’s clearly im­pact­ing en­joy­ment be­tween the sheets.”
