Dr. Lee Smith, a consultant for physical activity and public health at the Anglia Ruskin University, said: "When we started the study, we expected a high degree of sexual activity, while the people isolated at home." But the opposite was the case: at this time only just under 40 per cent of the 868 respondents, adults in the UK had at least once a week to have Sex. Active, Younger, men, Married as well as people who drank a glass of alcohol.

The researchers believe it is possible that anxiety and Stress could prevent people from having Sex. Also, a spatial separation among couples not living together, or the reduced use of Dating Apps that allow for casual sex, are reasons conceivable.
