This ain't a joke! Brit couples 'crave sex 5 times a week'

A large number of British couples have admitted that they are unhappy with their sex life and want to have four times more sex than they are currently having.

According to a research by online pharmacy UKMedix.com, British couples want to quadruple the amount of sex they have but long working hours, children and tiredness keep getting in their way, the Daily Star reported.

The survey has found that on an average, the couples want to take the frequency of sex from one to five sessions a week.

However, 70 per cent of people polled admitted that work commitments and tiredness that comes with it, is the number one dampener on their sex lives, while others cited mismatched sex drives as the cause.

50 per cent of respondents blamed their phones, tablets and laptops for distracting them from paying loving attention to their partners in the bedroom.

Sarah Bailey of UKMedix.com said that sex is a key part of a healthy relationship and a way to connect to your partner, so it’s important to make time with your other half and prioritise those moments which keep your relationship strong, whether that’s in the bedroom or elsewhere.

Love or lust? Your eyes have the answer

A new study has revealed that eye movement of a person could tell the difference between their romantic love and sexual desire.

Specifically, where your date looks at you could indicate whether love or lust is in the cards.

The new study found that eye patterns concentrate on a stranger’s face if the viewer sees that person as a potential partner in romantic love, but the viewer gazes more at the other person’s body if he or she is feeling sexual desire.

That automatic judgment can occur in as little as half a second, producing different gaze patterns.

Stephanie Cacioppo, director of the UChicago High-Performance Electrical NeuroImaging Laboratory, said that although little is currently known about the science of love at first sight or how people fall in love, but these patterns of response provided the first clues regarding how automatic attention processes, such as eye gaze, might differentiate feelings of love from feelings of desire toward strangers.

He further explained that by identifying eye patterns that were specific to love-related stimuli, the study might contribute to the development of a biomarker that differentiates feelings of romantic love versus sexual desire.

It was also established that an eye-tracking paradigm might eventually offer a new avenue of diagnosis in clinicians’ daily practice or for routine clinical exams in psychiatry and/or couple therapy.

A new study has revealed that married couples with kids cheat more than the childless.

According to the study, parents are nearly twice as likely to cheat as married people without children, according to the New York Post.

The study of 1,000 18- to 49-year-olds found that 18 per cent of parents said they’ve strayed, compared to only 11 per cent of childless married people.

Melissa Lavigne-Delville, the San Francisco-based culture and trend expert who conducted the study, said that many parents are logging onto social networks like Facebook and Instagram for emotional fulfilment.

Lavigne-Delville  said that their study found the likelihood of committing infidelity is far greater once the pressures and realities of parenthood enter the equation and digital only makes it that much easier and blurs the line of what is actually cheating.

Teen guys desire intimacy and close relationships: Study

A new study has revealed that adolescent boys desire intimacy and sex in the context of a meaningful relationship and value trust in their partnerships.

Researchers at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health researchers studied 33 males who ranged from 14 to 16 years of age to learn more about how their romantic and sexual relationships developed, progressed, and ended and found that close relationships were important to the participants and they desired intimate and caring relationships, expressed vulnerability and dependence, and placed great importance on trust in relationships.

David Bell said that prevailing values in our culture suggest adolescent males want sex, not relationships.

However, values and behaviours related to sex and relationships are likely more complex than typically portrayed.

The study was published online in the American Journal of Men's Health.
