What with earning, cooking, cleaning in the home, and mingling with friends, sex seems to be put on to the back burner, according to a recent sex survey among British women in their 40s and early 50s.
The survey shows that British women in their forties and fifties appeared to have a lower sex drive than their European counterparts. Ursula Heinen, a mother of three from Germany said, "A healthy sex life is as good for the brain as it is for the body. It keeps your adrenalin flowing, making you feel fit and in a good mood."
It has been said that Europeans seem to want a lot more of the old hanky panky than the British. "In Britain, sex is something that is laughed about and there is clumsiness about love and sex," said Paula Hall, a relationship specialist.
