A new survey about bedroom habits reveals that when it comes to sex, men are larks and women are owls
It’s one of mankind’s age-old quandaries – but now a new study has shed light on just why heterosexual couples never seem to feel amorous at the same time of day.Women and Men want sex at different times
According to a survey of 2,300 adults, the two sexes simply operate in different time zones when it comes to sex.
While men are at their most amorous between the hours of 6am and 9am, women follow suit much later in the day, between 11pm and 2am.
Erotic toy brand Lovehoney analysed the data to determine that the exact time the average man reaches ‘Peak Horniness’ is 7:54am, compared to 11:21pm for his average female partner.
Only 16% of men said they regularly want sex before falling asleep, while a meagre 11% of women responded that they felt most passionate early in the morning.
The survey also suggested that people tend to settle down with partners who have similar sex drives.
Over half of all people polled (63% of women and 54% of men) said that they desired sex roughly the same amount as their current partner.
However, 44% of women and 33% of men reported having experienced issues in previous relationships due to mismatched sex drives.
Lovehoney co-owner Richard Longhurst said: “This shows that there are big differences in Sex O’Clock between the sexes.
“Men are ready for sex just before breakfast whereas women most want passion last thing at night.
“What is encouraging is that most people tend to find sexual happiness in the end with a partner with similar needs.
“But Lovehoney has found that most of us do have a few difficult relationships with lovers whose sex drives are different from our own along the way.”
