If you’re single don’t panic, couples might not be “doing it” as much as you think. In fact if you and your partner haven’t done the deed in the last month you’re certainly not the only ones.

Nearly half of Brits are unhappy with their sex lives because of an increasing pressure to perform, a recent study found.

Previous research suggested that the average couple were getting hot between the sheets twice a week. But a study of 6,000 recently discovered that a whopping 51% haven’t had sex in the past month.

Experts from relationships charity, Relate, think the sex draught stems from the pressure to perform.

“People often put so much pressure on themselves to have ‘amazing sex’ that they end up avoiding it altogether or do not notice what is good about their sex lives,” said a spokesperson for the charity.

“But just thinking differently could work wonders for the nation’s sex lives.”

So, how much sex do men and women wish they were having?

A recent study by YouGov asked more than 1,100 people about their sexual habits and preferences and the results were eye-opening.

Not surprisingly, there was a gap between the sexes. The results revealed that a whopping 18% of men and 9% of women wish they could have sex everyday.

However, another study revealed that overall ladies want to get jiggy more than blokes do.

A whopping 75% of ladies wished they were getting down and dirty upwards of three times a week, compared to 67% of men.

Some women weren’t even satisfied with that, with 13% confessing they’d like to engage in sexual activity more than six times a week.

More great news came from the findings because 39% of women admitted that they orgasm at least once per sex act while one in 10 enjoyed multiple climaxes.
