Being stuck indoors has provided people with the perfect opportunity to reflect on their sex lives – because what else is there to do?
As a result, OnBuy was interested to discover how couples are dealing with it… and the results aren’t great.
OnBuy surveyed 1,360 18-45-year-olds to discover whether lockdown has improved their sex lives or has left them regretful. OnBuy found that almost half (47%) of those in relationships admit to having less sex while isolating together.
Following this, 41% of women state that they are not happy with their sex lives, in comparison to 34% of males – almost 3 in 5 women believing their sex life could do with spicing up.
Although OnBuy’s research determined that women are less impressed with their partner’s bedroom skills; more men (56%) would label their sexual encounters with their partner as ‘vanilla’, compared to 51% of women.
A huge 81% of men believe that they could get better sex elsewhere, compared to 78% of women.
Despite this, only 21% of men and 17% of women have brought up issues about their partner’s bedroom skills.
After asking ‘What makes a disappointing sexual experience?’ OnBuy discovered that the top five are as follows:
Women: Little time on foreplay (70%), lack of orgasms (67%), premature ejaculation (57%), no communication (56%) and lack of enthusiasm (45%).
Men: Impotence (86%), lack of enthusiasm (67%), no communication (60%), premature ejaculation (56%) and lack of spontaneity (55%).
