Is Bri­tain in the mid­dle of a SEX CRI­SIS?

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

BOR­ING Brits have gone off BONK­ING!

That’s the wor­ry­ing news as 2014 threat­ens to go down as the year when the UK turned its back on nookie.

A new survey sug­gest thats 40 per cent of cou­ples are hav­ing sex ‘less fre­quently’ than they were in 2013.

Long hours at work, in­creased fi­nan­cial stress…. and hav­ing to share a bed with PETS are the main rea­sons for our frus­trat­ing shag drought.

And that’s de­spite the fact that 58 per cent of us say we feel ‘hap­pier’ when we’re get­ting jiggy more of­ten.

All re­spon­dents were ini­tially asked, ‘ On av­er­age, how many times per week do you and your part­ner have sex?’

The an­swers re­vealed that the av­er­age Bri­tish cou­ple has sex TWICE per week.

When asked if they were hav­ing less sex this year com­pared to the amount they were en­joy­ing in 2013, 40 per cent said ‘yes’.

Fi­nan­cial wor­ries (37 per cent), longer hours at work (34 per cent), shar­ing the bed with pets (31 per cent), too tired from an ac­tive so­cial life (29 per cent), and ar­gu­ing be­cause of in­se­cu­ri­ties (20 per cent) were the top five rea­sons for not get­ting naughty in the bed­room.


Almost half of re­spon­dents – 43 per cent – said they were wor­ried their part­ner was go­ing off them.

The study was car­ried out by VoucherCodesPro. A spokesper­son said: “It’s no sur­prise that cou­ples who worry about as­pects of their lives, or are putting in all the hours over­time at work, don’t have the time, ef­fort or mojo to be mak­ing love to their part­ner on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

“We need to learn to put things aside and make more time for our re­la­tion­ships.

“It’s not good to spend too long wor­ry­ing, or spend­ing all of your own time work­ing.

“Re­la­tion­ships are im­por­tant and, if we’re lucky enough to find some­one that we want to spend the rest of our lives with, we should give them a fair level of at­ten­tion.”

So what can we do to im­prove our love­mak­ing lives?

We de­cided to put three of our hottest mod­els on the spot by ask­ing them for their ad­vice:
