A new study has revealed that women wait three weeks and until the fifth date before sleeping with a new man.
The study shows women coyer as only 15% said they would have sex on the first date, compared to 26% of men, the Mirror reported.
13% women said that they would take the plunge on the second date, compared to 16percent of men, but when it comes to kissing, both sexes are much more open.
Out of the 2,225 people questioned by the sex toy firm Lovehoney, which looked at how long men and women take to reach to meet significant dating milestones, 72% of both men and women revealed they share their first kiss on the first date.
Lovehoney co-owner Richard Longhurst said the survey shows that men like to get a move on not just when it comes to sex, but commitment too, adding that men are keener to tell their partner they love them but also to outwardly recognise this commitment by changing their Facebook status and introducing their loved one to their parents.
Longhurst added that women are a little more wary preferring to take their time before revealing similar levels of commitment.
He noted that what is encouraging is that British men?s stiff upper lip seems to have disappeared completely as they are prepared to be far more open about their feelings and tell their partner their true feelings.
