Despite the easing of taboos: anal sex is no longer considered inappropriate, it is in fact the fifth base, and with an ever increasing rise of hookup apps, we Brits should be in the midst of a sexual revolution.
So how come so many of us are in a sex recession?
The last poll by British National Surveys of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal) showed the number of times we’re having sex each month has dropped from five to three.
The reason for this?
Experts believe the economic recession, money worries, stress and busy lifestyles are the main factors responsible for the decline in our sexual appetites. That and our new found love of taking technology to bed, not a partner.
