A survey has found that almost a third of Swedish couples have sex while their child is asleep in the same bed, a major newspaper reported.
In a separate study 59 percent of U.S. parents admitted to having sex while an infant was in the room, but results are not available as to whether any had it while their child was in the same bed.
The latest survey, carried out by a Swedish magazine, also found that 48 per cent of moms manage to have sex once or twice a week, while four per cent claimed to get amorous with their partners every day.
The findings will rub salt in the wound for U.S. parents, who are repeatedly found to be disappointed with their sex lives, as they juggle work and families.
A survey of 600 U.S. families last year found that six in ten working parents didn’t have enough energy left to have sex with their partners.
However, U.S. moms are going to different extreme measures to fit a romantic life – with 12 per cent using their phones during sex, a survey found last month.
Swedish moms do agree that everyday life does stand in the way of ‘fulfilling their sex dreams.’
Also, of the 663 mothers surveyed, a quarter revealed that they fantasized about being unfaithful while 10 per cent admitted to cheating on their partners.
But surprisingly most mothers in Sweden (51 per cent) reported to only having sex once or twice a month.
Seven per cent of mothers said they had sex just once or twice a year.
