Married women enjoy best sex
Tuesday, November 12, 2002
LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Forget forbidden flings and passionate one night stands, it's married women who enjoy the best sex.
Two thirds of married women say the best sex they've had is with their husband, compared to 13 percent who say it was when they were single and just 9 percent when having an affair, a survey by British health magazine Top Sante said.
"This survey turns on its head the idea that the best sex is when we are footloose, fancy free and single," Juliette Kellow, Top Sante's editor, said.
Men will be able to draw reassurance from the findings, based on a survey of 2,000 women across the UK. More than half of the women think their partner had a "gorgeous body," 69 percent were happy with their man's weight, and 93 percent were pleased with his "manhood."
Even after 14 years of marriage, 63 percent of women still fancied their husband and 65 percent thought sex never went bad with the right man.
But although 95 percent of women believed being faithful was important in a long-term relationship, 16 percent admitted to having affairs.
