Red-headed, Cancerian, 23-year-old trolley dollies living in Edinburgh confess to craving intimacy in bed

It seems Britain’s love affair with nookie has lost its spark as a massive 55% of Brits admit that, after sleep, they prefer read, watch TV, listen to music and surf the web, rather than get frisky between the sheets.

And a staggering one in four of us reveal they now only turn up the heat in the bedroom once a fortnight. That’s a flaccid 26 times a year.

According to the 4000 Brits surveyed in the poll* by Silentnight Beds, engaging in passion is now no longer top of the list when it comes to what they enjoy doing in bed, and instead, they see the bedroom as a place to relax and unwind.

Brits blame being overworked, exhausted and stressed as reasons for cooling things down in the bedroom and see those sacred eight hours (or seven for the average Brit) as an opportunity to switch off.

That is, except, for the 15% of taskmasters who see their bed as just another place to get work done, send emails and network online through sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

However, not all Brits feel the same way. Red-headed, Cancerian, 23-year-old trolley dollies living in Edinburgh confess to craving intimacy in bed, over anything else.

Regionally, those in Belfast, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Southampton prefer to read in bed.

Compared to those in Essex, Coventry, London and Worcester who prefer to watch the box.

Leaving just those in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and Sheffield wanting some pillow talk.

Amanda Jones, spokesperson for Silentnight, said: “We weren’t that surprised to hear that making love is no longer the favourite thing to do in bed after sleep. Given the long hours we work and the stresses and strains we’re under, it’s no wonder Brits see their bedrooms as a sanctuary in which to relax.

“Since the majority of us aren’t getting the recommended eight hours a night, it’s never been more important to use our beds for sleeping and switching off.”
