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.
