Set your alarm clocks, fellas! Women's sexual appetite peaks at 11pm on Saturday night, says study
14:32 GMT, 9 May 2012
There's a time and a place for sex, and latest research suggests for women their desire peaks at 11pm on a Saturday night – the venue TBC.
The finding is just of the statistics to emerge from a nationwide study investigating the truth behind female libido.
Despite more than than three quarters of the UK being satisfied with their sex lives, a large proportion blamed hectic work schedules and lack of free time for dampening the mood.
Feeling frisky 11pm on a Saturday night is when women's sexual drive is at peak according to the latest research
Scots and women from the South West were revealed to be the
most satisfied in the bedroom (82 per cent) while Irish women were found to be the least (30 per cent).
Irish are having the most sex, with 42 per cent indulging more than three times a week,
followed by Londoners and the Welsh with 33 per cent and 29 per cent respectively.
The study investigating women's sex drive was commissioned by Women's Health magazine
And although the UK is not known for its balmy weather, 40 per cent of Brits shunned the traditional prudish image to enjoy regular al fresco sex.
A spokesperson from Women’s Health magazine, which commissioned the survey of 1,000 women, said: 'It is great to see that the majority of
British women are satisfied between the sheets, or outside, as our
Women’s Health sex survey reveals.'
Last year the London School of Economics reported that Thursday morning is the best day for couples to have sex.
According to researchers this is the time when natural cortisol energy levels, which stimulate sex hormones, are at their peak.
Also levels of the sex hormones testosterone in men and oestrogen in women were found to be up to five times higher at the beginning of the day.
