Are you having enough sex?
2,0000 British couples in happy, long-term relationships have revealed how often they get hot between the sheets.
Researcher of the British streaming service ITVX asked Brits in a survey about important factors that contribute to a long-lasting romance.
They found that the couples who had been together for at least ten years had sex an average of seven times a month.
Accordingly Daily Mail, In the research report, the lovers claimed that reaching this magic number helped them build a successful relationship.
However, the survey also found that the majority of participants did not believe that sex was the most defining part of their relationship.
Most couples said “having fun together” is the defining factor of their relationship and the reason that has kept them together for more than a decade.
“Compromise,” “not having secrets,” and “having the same sense of humor” were also rated as more important factors for a successful romance than being rude in the bedroom.
Although many respondents said regular sex was important, 5 percent of couples surveyed admitted to sleeping in separate bedrooms.
Meanwhile, 20 percent of those surveyed said they had cheated on their partner.
Of them, 58 percent were caught infidelity, but most were able to recover from their big mistake.
Surprisingly, 85 percent of couples surveyed said they were able to stay together after infidelity, while 38 percent even claimed that an affair made their relationship stronger in the end.
The survey was conducted ahead of the premiere of Love & Death, which is set to air on ITVX in the UK.
It’s just one of several current research projects looking at important factors in relationships.
