One in 10 joggers said they have sex at least once a day and three percent of joggers said they have sex twice a day. Amongst non-runners one in four (25 percent) said they had sex once a month or less, reports telegraph.co.uk.
The survey involving 1,000 runners and 1,000 non-runners, carried out by healthcare charity Sue Ryder Care, also found that one in 10 male runners confessed to thinking about sex while exercising.
In comparison, only five percent of women said they think about sex while running and almost half spend their time thinking about how the exercise is benefiting them.
The poll also found that a quarter of joggers admitted going running to help them flirt with the opposite sex in a trend branded as 'flunning'. More than a third said they have managed to strike up a conversation with someone of the opposite sex while running.
"Last year runners raised over 500,000 pounds for Sue Ryder Care so we wanted to find out what motivates people to run," telegraph.co.uk quoted Laura Savory, running and events manager at Sue Ryder Care, as saying.
"We were tickled to discover this new craze which seems to have really caught on everywhere. We estimate that there are almost 600,000 flunners in the UK. It's a great opportunity for single runners to get out there and find their love match. We're hoping this will encourage more Brits to get running," Savory added.
