The ongoing credit crunch has liberalised people’s attitude towards sex, at least that’s what a research panel at a recent Sexpo suggests.



The world's largest health, sexuality and lifestyle expo, Sexpo, claims that the gloomy economic climate has seen a move back to "naughty sexuality", reports

.



"A research panel at a recent Sexpo noted a marked change in taste and naughty choices over the past two years," organiser Silas Howarth said in a statement.



On the panel were Howarth, behavioural psychologist Dr Kris Launer, Reverend Daniel Brits, Miss Nude SA Bella Anderson and "mind power specialist" Alain D Woolf.



He said: "The global recession, job losses and bleak forecasts have had a major influence on sexuality in 2009... [This indicates] a move back to a naughty sexuality." "The global economic crisis, job insecurity and other stress factors will cause in increase in sexual activity between couples, acting as a stress release valve and escape clause from realities,” he added.



According to Howarth, Sexpos around the country had seen a dramatic increase in visitor numbers since the debut event in 2007. "In some instances attendance has grown by 50 percent. A clear sign that sexuality has come out into the open in South Africa,” he said.
