Research says that sex is on the decline
With research revealing that sex is on the decline, Mattress Online has discovered Britain’s biggest mood killers and found out the best ways to keep bedroom antics alive.
The study shows it’s the season for romance with 1/3 agreeing Christmas is the best time of year for sex, which was twice as popular as Valentine’s Day. But what’s turning the UK off?
40% of people surveyed say they’d refuse sex if their partner hadn’t done chores, and 40% blame tiredness for destroying intimate moments. Love Island could also be ruining your sex life as 20% say reality TV is the biggest passion killer. Social media might affect your sex life more than you thought, as 1/10 are more satisfied by likes than sex. It’s also time to give up those takeaways as 1/6 agree feeling too full and bloated is what’s most likely to stop them having sex.
How to improve your sex life
If you’re looking to improve your sex life, 60% say they’d schedule sex to keep bedroom activity on the cards. Relationship expert Katie Loisel agrees, saying ‘It may not sound romantic, but when your life is full of distractions and a ‘to do’ list as long as your arm, making time for sex can be the last thing on your mind. Scheduling intimacy forces you to focus on the two of you and to prioritise your relationship.’
