HOW active are you in the bedroom? Research reveals how much sex the average couple has.
It can be difficult to know if your bedroom behaviour is normal.
So are you bonking as often as others, or do you need to up your game?
A recent study from The Journal of Sex Research revealed how many times couples have sex per year.
The intimate survey measured sex frequency among three different age groups.
Young Brits were the most rampant, enjoying trysts twice as much as those who had passed the age of 40.
Data showed that under 30s bonked 112 times a year – equivalent to two times every week.
The study showed that this figure begins to drop off as you age.
Those who are aged between 30 to 39 saw sparks fly in the bedroom 86 times a year.
The most significant dip in couples’ sex lives appears to occur when they hit 40.
Research revealed that 40 to 49-year-olds romp 69 times a year.
It’s believed that middle aged people can struggle with libido because of ageing.
In response to the study, Dr Justin Lehmiller said: “Those who feel older and have more negative attitudes toward aging are likely to perceive the sharpest declines in the quality of their sex lives.”
“At the same time, the younger people feel, the more likely they are to maintain high sexual satisfaction as they get older – or at least they’ll experience a much less noticeable change”
If you are looking to get jiggy more regularly, there are plenty of ways to boost your sex drive.
Packing some aphrodisiac-filled foods into your everyday menu could do the trick.
Many couples find talking about their love lives is a good way to overcome any sexual staleness.
HANDY GUIDE: Nine hot sex tips for women to drive their men wild in the bedroom
LADIES, listen up! If you want to drive your man wild in the bedroom we’ve got the tips for you.
You’ve heard of little things called erogenous zones before, but do you know where they are on a man’s body?
There are apparently nine areas that turn a man on in the bedroom.
Some of them are obvious – if you’re not touching those areas you’re definitely doing it wrong – but some of them may surprise you.
Sexperts spoke to Women’s Health about which areas to focus on to really get a man going.
Here are the nine places you should be focusing your attention.
The mouth is a very important erogenous zone.
Kissing boosts levels of dopamine in the brain, a neurotransmitter that boosts desire and the reward system in the brain.
Try tracing his lips slowly with your tongue, or softly bite his lower lip, sexologist Carol Queen suggests.
And of course, don’t forget full on making out can be just as fun.
If you’ve ever had someone play with your ears and liked it, then it makes sense your man would like it too.
In fact, in a survey ears came in just behind the scrotum for places that can help men climax.
Try gently nibbling or licking his ear.
Or try whispering something sexy to spice things up.
The skin of the scrotum is quite sensitive and can really turn a man on when touched.
You should definitely keep the biting and nibbling at bay here though.
Instead try sucking, licking, cupping or gently squeezing them, sex coach Charlie Glickman suggests.
“Start with your hand around both balls, then bring your fingertips together over them – like you’re picking up a napkin off the floor,” another expert said.
Who doesn’t like their neck being kissed?
Think about the tingles it sends through your body – it does the same for him.
And the nape of his neck in the best place to focus, according to a study published in the journal Ergonomics.
You should kiss him there with your mouth slightly open while humming.
“The combination of heat and vibrations will help prompt some serious sensations for him,” sex expert Emily Morse explained.
Or try using a vibrator to massage his hairline.
By now you’ve probably worked out that what works for you can also work for him.
In a recent survey for the journal Cortex, men admitted that nipples were one of their top spots for stimulation.
Carol suggests gently sucking or licking a nipple while touching your man down there for extra pleasure.
6. The shaft
You’re probably already focusing on the penis to get him in the mood.
But how you touch it can make all the difference.
According to a survey published in the BMJ men rate having the top of their shaft touched.
And when it comes to how much pressure to give your grip – sexperts suggest it needs to be fairly firm.
That’s because the erectile tissue sits fairly deep beneath the skin, so a good amount of pressure is needed.
7. The tip
The tip of the penis, called the glans, has a lot of nerves – more than the shaft, in fact.
It’s the closest thing to a clitoris a man has.
So whether you are using your hands or engaging in oral sex, be sure to focus some attention here.
8. His bum
Men have a G-spot too – it’s the prostate gland located about a finger’s length inside the bum.
Not every man will want you to stimulate it though, so check with your partner before you stick anything anywhere.
But if they are up for it, it can be quite an experience for them.
FALLING IN LUST? Couple having sex while skydiving! WATCH VIDEO
A French-Canadian porn star took his career to new heights when he videotaped himself having sex while skydiving with the receptionist of the skydiving company where he moonlighted as a part-time instructor.
Alex Torres aka “Voodoo” has since been fired from Skydive Taft, but no termination decision has been made about his fellow Mile High Club member Hope Howell.
The award-winning pornographic actor (who was born Alexandre Boisvert) was trying to get the attention of Howard Stern.
The video shows them screwing in the plane on the way to the jump-spot, as they jumped out together, and STILL having sex as they soared through midair upon pulling the ripcord and deploying the parachute. Epic!
FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says any activity that could distract the pilot while he’s flying could be a violation of federal regulations. Skydive Taft owner David Chrouch says he fired part-time skydiving instructor and porn star Alex Torres and hasn’t decided whether to fire the company’s receptionist, Hope Howell, who he said was Torres’ partner in the video.
Authorities say Torres had posted the video on his blog but removed it on Monday. Chrouch said he found out about the stunt when a Taft police officer told him that the video was making the rounds at a local school. Taft police Lt. Ed Whiting told KGET-TV that no criminal charges are pending.
At one point in the video the couple is shown seated in a jump seat right next to the pilot. “No I wasn’t concerned,” Chrouch told KGET. “He was in complete control of the plane at all times. I mean he looked back a couple of times. The same thing he does if there are other skydivers in the plane. He is going to look back, he’s going to look around to see what everyone is doing.”
If your partner does THIS for a living – they’re probably cheating on you
IF YOU have suspicions that your lover is cheating on you, take a look at their job.
No one wants to know that they’re being cheated on, but sadly it happens.
In fact, previous studies have shown that 45% of men and 21% of women will have admitted to cheating on their partners in the past.
So if you’re worried that your other half is sleeping around you might want to have a long, hard look at thier job.
Ashley Madison, the world’s leading married dating website, surveyed over 1,000 of its members to find out which jobs hold the most cheaters.
Results found people in more stressful and dangerous jobs are more likely to stray.
It found that 23% of women who work in the medical profession cheat on their lovers.
And for men, those working in the trades profession (29%) are most likely to engage in an extramarital relationship.
The study also found that 44% of respondents will stay more loyal to their job than thier partner.
Isabella Mise, Director of Communications at Ashley Madison, said: “A combination of long hours of potential stress mixed with a natural reaction to stress just might be the reason these women in the medical profession seek out an affair.
“Jobs in teaching, entrepreneurship and finance also all topped the list for female members.”
“And jobs in trades often mean irregular hours and are often structured in shift work meaning it’s easier for men to fly under the radar when it comes to sneaking around with an affair partner.”
Top careers for female cheaters:
1. Medical – 23%
2. Education – 12%
3. Entrepreneur – 11%
4. Finance – 9%
5. Social Work – 9%
