The Great British SEXODUS! Over a quarter of Britons say they’re having less sex now than they used to – while 15% haven’t got frisky at all this year
- A report called the “Sex Census” questioned 4,000 Britons about their sexual habits
- It appears that 27% of Britons are now having less sex than they used to
It’s often seen as a taboo subject, but a new report has finally lifted the lid on Britons’ sex lives.
The report by LELO, called the Sex Census, questioned 4,000 Britons about their sexual habits.
It reveals that Britain is in the midst of a ‘sex migration’, with more than a quarter of Britons (27 per cent) now having less sex than they used to.
What’s more, 15% admitted they haven’t had much fun at all this year.
LELO believes that sexual displacement may be an indirect result of the pandemic, when many people go an extended period without the opportunity for physical intimacy.

For the report, LELO surveyed 4,000 participants about their sexual experiences in 2023.
While 24% of participants said they are having more sex now, 27% said they are having less sex, while 15% said they are not having sex at all.
The remaining 33% said they did not feel any change in their sex life.
Breaking down the results by age, the report shows that people aged 18 to 24 are having more sex (38 percent) this year than last year.
In contrast, 31% of people aged 35 to 44 say they will have less sex in 2023.
Meanwhile, nearly half of people aged 55-64 appear to be stable in their sex lives, with 47% reporting no change.

“A simple explanation may be that Generation Z are at a life stage where they are typically exploring their sexuality and Millennials are at the peak of their careers and family lives, meaning priorities may lie elsewhere,” LELO said in the report.
The report also reveals the number of sexual partners Britons have had this year.
More than half of participants (60%) said they had only had one sexual partner in the past 12 months.
“This may be further evidence of a slowdown in sex life in the UK or be an indicator of people choosing long-term relationships,” LELO said.
Meanwhile, 15% had never had sex, while almost one in 20 had had three sexual partners.
LELO hopes the report “opens up conversations about sex.”
“By opening up conversations about sex and pleasure, we can break the taboos surrounding these less traditional desires, and open the door to a more fulfilling sex life for everyone,” said Luka Matutinović, Chief Marketing Officer at LELO.

Lovely Brits were today told to be wary of the unexpected consequences of temperatures in the Caribbean this weekend.
Hot weather leads to a phenomenon called a ‘cheating wave’, according to one expert who claims that sunny periods are likely to make people hotter than usual.

The same thing also happened this time last year. Jessica Leoni, from Illicitencounters.com, says hot weather is the direct cause.
