CoupleModern gadgets such as Blackberrys and iPhones are ruining women's sex lives because their husbands are too distracted in the bedroom, says a latest study.

More than a quarter of women (28 percent) claim that email and internet are disrupting their love lives, with hand-held devices particularly to blame. Other factors which prevent couples enjoying intimacy include long working hours (cited by 55 percent of women), tiredness (83 percent) and being too busy (74 percent), reports telegraph.co.uk.

The research by pharmaceutical firm Bayer also shows that many women are missing their sexual peak by a decade.

The survey found that on average British women have sex 1.4 times a week, but six in ten women aged between 25 and 34 would like a more active sex life.

More than one in two feel sexiest during their 30s, yet two in three have the most sex in their 20s.

Fifty-one percent of women believe they reach their sexual peak in their 30s, but 66 percent say they had their most sex during their 20s.

One in ten women say their fear of pregnancy inhibits them in the bedroom, with one in five women admitting they shun contraception.
