Seven in 10 Britons want to make love more often, with men more frustrated than women, and women more likely to cheat on their partners, according to a new survey published today.
The survey found that about a third of Britons (31 per cent) have sex twice a week, with 10 per cent having it every day -- although 22 per cent make love less than once a month.
An average of 72 per cent of people want more sex -- 62 per cent of women and 82 per cent of men, according to the Durex Big Sex Survey of some 3,000 British citizens.
Women are more unfaithful to their partners than men, the survey showed with some 40 per cent of female respondents saying they have cheated, compared with 34 per cent of men.
Some 20 per cent of people fantasize about someone else while making love with their partners: 41 per cent about a good friend, 22 per cent with a work colleague, while 13 per cent secretly lust after their partner's friend.
And the daydreams are not all heterosexual: a third of women (34 per cent) fantasize in general about lesbian sex, compared with 14 per cent of men who have gay fantasies.
Some places are hotter than others under the covers: Britain's sex central is apparently the northern city of Bradford, where nearly one in four (23 per cent) of people makes love every day.
At the other end of the scale, the people of Sunderland in northeastern England are most frustrated, with eight out of 10 people wanting more sex than they get.
Despite all the pent-up desire, not everything is doom and gloom under the British bedsheets: overall most respondents (63 per cent) said they were generally content with their sex lives.
