The research for investigating women’s sex drive was commissioned by a health magazine, was undertaken to find the truth behind female libido, and is based on the survey of 1,000 women.
Despite more than three quarters of the UK being satisfied with their sex lives, a large proportion blamed hectic work schedules and lack of free time for dampening the mood.
Scots and women from the South West were revealed to be the most satisfied in the bedroom (82 percent) while Irish women were found to be the least (30 percent).
However the Irish are having the most sex, with 42 percent indulging more than three times a week, followed by Londoners and the Welsh with 33 percent and 29 percent respectively.
And although the UK is not known for its balmy weather, 40 percent of British shunned the traditional prudish image to enjoy regular al fresco sex.
“It is great to see that the majority of British women are satisfied between the sheets, or outside, as our Women’s Health sex survey reveals,” the Daily Mail quoted the spokesperson for the magazine as saying.
Last year the London School of Economics had reported that Thursday morning is the best day for couples to have sex.
According to researchers this is the time when natural cortisol energy levels, which stimulate sex hormones, are at their peak.
Also levels of the sex hormones testosterone in men and oestrogen in women were found to be up to five times higher at the beginning of the day.
