Ann Summers Promotes Pleasure Positivity

The Mirror has reported on a survey of 2,000 British couples who revealed how much they enjoy their intimate lives with one another. With almost half surveyed reporting they have sex once a week, at the other end of the scale 10% didn’t have sex at all with their partners. After sex, 42% of women reported feeling completely satisfied, vs. 52% of men.

The Pleasure Positivity Campaign by retailer Ann Summers that conducted the research, encourages couples to talk more about sex – after finding that 41% of Brits find it an awkward topic to discuss with their partner. It aims to share the best ways of communication in the hope that women and men’s satisfaction with one another will increase.

Over 1,000 men were surveyed and stress, anxiety and depression were cited as the main things to negatively impact their sex lives.
