According to the Telegraph UK's recent survey: Sex is the most popular free pastime

Sex is most popular free pastime:
The credit crisis has encouraged Britons to seek out free leisure activities and the most popular is sexual intercourse, according to a survey.

Last Updated: 7:19AM GMT 02 Dec 2008

More than a third of Britons rank sexual activity at the top of their list of freetime activities, according to the YouGov survey conducted over the Internet.

That was more than the next three highest options combined - gossiping with friends (18 per cent), window shopping (9 per cent) and going to a museum (6 per cent). According to the poll, however, women preferred gossiping with friends, while men tended to rank sex as number one.

It also showed that passion levels may be tied to the cold weather, with 43 percent of Scots rating sex as their favourite freetime activity, compared to 35 percent of Londoners.

Lisa Power, head of policy at the Terrence Higgins Trust, the sexual health charity that commissioned the poll, urged couples to practise safe sex.

"Rates of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections are on the up so when you snuggle down with a partner, make sure you do it safely," she said

Rebecca Findlay, from the Family Planning Association advised: "If anyone's having more sex at the moment whatever the reason, do think about your contraception, your condoms and any testing you might need for sexually transmitted infections.

"And you can get all of these for free on the NHS."

The YouGov survey interviewed 2,144 people over the Internet between November 21 and 23.

"According to the poll, however, women preferred gossiping with friends, while men tended to rank sex as number one." I certainly don't prefer hearing rumors over getting some nookie.

Also "It also showed that passion levels may be tied to the cold weather" .. Uh, DUH! I'm from a cold weather state, all you could do during the winter was stay in... and what did you do when you were inside trying to keep yourself from getting cabin fever? Have a romp in the sack! I got pregnant with my son in February because all there was to do was have sex... have sex to keep busy... have sex to keep warm... have sex to have sex! lol.

Although I would like to see more folks going out to museums, being an art lover myself, I think it is great that people are using these sour economic times for something positive and getting to know their fellow humans on a more intimate level, but either way be safe, play smart and most of all have fun !!!

Do people really have sex more often than they masturbate?

I wish they went into more detail about how they conducted the study. Did they give people a fixed list of activities or did they let everyone provide their own answer? I thought I remembered a survey done in the US years ago where women preferred reading to sex. According to the UK study though, that's not even in the top three.

I like sex a lot more in the winter, too, actually. Cuddling is better because you have to get closer to stay warm, and you have to make enough heat to be warn while actually having sex as well.
