There’s a specific time of day, time of year, and place that we prefer to have sex. This is pretty damn specific, but there’s research to back it up. What do you think is the time and day you’re most likely to have sex?
LifeStyles condoms have done a national survey analysing the sex lives of more than 5,000 people. According to their findings, there are two very specific days of the year that we like to get down and dirty the most – and honestly – it’s not that surprising.
Coming in second place, drum roll please… a whopping 73 per cent of people say they enjoy sex on Valentine’s day over the other 364 days of the year. But if that wasn’t already predictable enough, the gold goes to our birthdays! It was a close one, but 79 per cent of people have, and want, to have sex on their birthday. To narrow it down even more, there’s also a specific time of the day that most people prefer to have sex.
Another survey from earlier this year found that men prefer to have sex early in the morning, from approximately 6-9am, while women favour doing the deed later at night, from approximately 11pm to 2am.
This same survey also discovered that male and female sex drives are generally out of sync – apparently 63 per cent of women and 68 per cent of men have had relationships where their sex drive was incompatible with their partner. So next time your boyfriend/husband whines that you never want to have sex, it could be appropriate to point out that you want sex, just not at the same time as they do.
If that wasn’t already enough, the time of the year and the day of the year isn’t the only thing that affects your sex drive, where you live can too. Another study has come out and said that your geographical location plays a role on your level of libido. EliteSingles.com.au surveyed 25,000 Australians and found that beach-side dwellers have higher libidos than small-town folk.
Good news for residents of Coogee, Manly, South Melbourne, Cronulla, and Port Melbourne, who apparently are among the tope five places with the highest sex drives.
However if you live in Shepparton (Vic), Caboolture (QLD), Sunbury (Vic), Glenroy (Vic) and Albury (NSW), it might be time to consider moving, because according to these findings you’re most likely to have a lower sex drive.
