Nearly half of Brits too tired to have sex

As people become increasingly busy and time strapped, it’s no surprise that certain aspects of their lives will suffer. So we decided to run some research to see just how much the ever-more dynamic world we live in was affecting people’s lives. 

The research revealed that more than half (56%) of respondents have sex less than once a week, with 48% citing being ‘too tired’ as the main reason. On top of this, we also found that nearly three quarters (72%) said they felt dissatisfied with the amount of sex they were having. 

After the most common reason for not having more sex, which was being too tired (48%), almost a third (30%) of people said it was due to not having enough time. Of the 56% of people who say they are having sex less than once a week, almost all (94%) agreed that even though they feel they technically have time, they feel so inundated by work pressures and other responsibilities that their sex lives had become less important.

When asked ‘what causes you the most stress?’, more than half of respondents (51%) answered money, whilst almost a third (32%) said work was the most stressful thing in their life. When asked why money caused them so much stress, more than a quarter (28%) said getting on the property ladder was the main reason, while nearly half (46%) stated lack of savings. Of the remaining respondents, almost all (93%) of them said that trying to make ends meet was the reason money stressed them out.

We also decided to ask adults about their energy levels. More than three quarters (79%) of people said they constantly felt tired, with the most commonly stated causes being lack of sleep, bad sleep patterns and a poor diet. More than two thirds (70%) of respondents said that they almost never get their five a day, whilst more than a third said they rarely do an hour’s worth of exercise a day.
