Everybody has a different sex life.
And while how sexually active you are can be determined by a whole host of different factors – health, time of the month, whether you’re in a relationship – we bet you never thought your address could have anything to do with it.
But a survey has now been released that reveals the places in the country where residents have the least – and most – sex.
According to research conducted by adult retailer Lovehoney, the area in the whole country where people have the least sex is a town up north in West Yorkshire.
After conducting their research in 725 towns across the UK, the retailer found that people who live in Batley in West Yorkshire have the least sex in the country.
Research also found that residents from the same area are less likely to be sexually adventurous as it has the lowest sales of erotic toys.
And when it came to the most sexually active place in the country?
The study headed down south to London.
It turns out that the sexiest place in the country is in fact Dagenham in Essex. Findings show that those from the town own more vibrators than any other place in the country and spend the most amount of money on sex toys.
