Couples are having less sex, study finds

Most of us aren't getting enough sex

Most of us aren't getting enough sex

On the other end of the scale, the percentage of people having sex more than 10 times a month was 20.2 percent in men and 20.6 percent in women in 2001 and then dropped to 14.4 and 13.2 percent for men and women respectively in 2012. "Sex", in this case, included vaginal intercourse, oral sex, or anal sex with people of the same gender or "opposite" gender, making this particular study refreshingly inclusive of different types of sex (and therefore a more accurate assessment than other surveys that only count penetrative heterosexual sex).

It was the title of a critically derided 1971 play loved by audiences, but now, "No Sex Please, We're British", looks more like fact than fiction.

The number of men reporting no sex in the same time from went up 26 percent to 29.2 percent.

Less than half of men and women aged 16 to 44 have sex at least once a week, responses show.

"What is important to well-being is not how often people have sex but whether it matters to them". In particular, it seems there were somehow more extremely sexually active people in 1991 than there were in 2012. They were interested in knowing whether or not the participants had sex in the past month, how often they had it, and what their ideal frequency of sex was.

It was also found sexual activity was on the decline among the general United Kingdom population over this period.

The researchers noted that the average number of times that 35 to 44-year-olds reported having sex in the past month fell from four to two among women and from four to three among men.

A survey found that British people who are married or living with a partner are having sex less often, driving an overall decline in sex within United Kingdom society.

"Several factors are likely to explain the declines, but one may be the sheer pace of modern life". People over the age of 25 are also having less sex, while more than half of British women and nearly two-thirds of men admitted wanting more.

But given the age and marital status of groups most affected, they said the best explanation could be a combination of stress, social media meaning less face-to-face interaction, and the lingering effects of the 2008 financial crisis and the years of recession that followed. "These are men and women who are often juggling work, childcare and responsibilities to parents who are getting older".

"Many people are likely to find it reassuring that they are not out of line".

Another piece of research found sporty and bisexual women have more sexual partners than their peers.

"Life in the digital age is considerably more complex than in previous eras, the boundary between the private space of home and the public world outside is blurred, and the internet offers considerable scope for diversion".
