More than one tenth of UK couples haven’t had sober sex in 6 months

drinkingMore than one tenth of couples in the UK have not had sober sex in over six months, and two thirds of those said they were not up to having fun in the bedroom unless they were under the influence.

 

The staggering statistic has been found in a survey conducted by online pharmacy UKMedix.com, which questioned adult alcohol drinkers about what they get up to behind closed doors, to which 11 per cent answered more than half a year ago to the question: “When did you last make love to your partner without being under the influence of alcohol?”

 

What’s more, two thirds of those said they were not up for getting jiggy with it in the bedroom unless they were under the influence, while 61 per cent of those taking part in the poll said alcohol made them more confident in the bedroom.

 

Sarah Bailey, of UKMedix.com, said: “We Britons love our booze – in responsible measures, of course – but it seems that we may be letting the alcohol come between us and our partner in the bedroom.

 

“It was shocking to see that as many as one in ten couples haven’t made love sober in over six months. Whilst there’s not necessarily anything wrong with this, our results show that many think booze affects the quality of our lovemaking in a negative way, and so it’s clearly impacting enjoyment between the sheets.

 

“Too much booze can cause a wealth of serious health problems, many of which can directly impact our sex lives.”
