The Top 6 Reasons for Avoiding Sex

by girls   February 12, 2009 at 6:30PM  |  Views: 285

A new survey shows that the current economic crisis is not affecting our sex lives. A recent poll by Consumer Reports found that 79 percent of sexually active respondents said the current financial downturn had no impact on how often they had sex. Couples were more likely to avoid sex for other reasons. The survey showed that 81 percent of respondents said they avoided or delayed sex with their partner in the past two years.

The top 6 reasons, according to Consumer Reports, for couples avoiding sex are:

1. Too tired or need sleep: 53 percent
2. Not feeling well or health problems: 49 percent
3. Not in the mood: 40 percent
4. Taking care of children or pets: 30 percent
5. Work: 29 percent
6. Watching TV or a movie: 19 percent

As expected the survey found that women were more likely than men to avoid or delay sex. This could be because men think more often about sex. The survey found that 60 percent of men thought about sex at least once a day, compared to 19 percent of women.
