Single women are less likely to initiate Sex than those in a relationship, but a new survey shows that single women are much more adventurous in the bedroom, once they finally get there.
A study commissioned by Penguin to mark the release of the erotic novel Bared To You showed that women in a relationship are much more likely to instigate Sex as they feel more confident in doing so once they’ve settled into a relationship.
Sylvia Day, author of Bared To You said, “The general perception is that once you’re in a committed relationship, your sex life suffers.
“But these results show that women can feel more comfortable taking charge in the bedroom once they’ve settled down with someone.
“For many women, initiating sexual interaction takes confidence, and isn’t something they feel comfortable doing until they’ve established a solid level of intimacy and trust with their partner, which takes time.”
Despite being less likely to initiate sex, single girls were found to be much more adventurous, by watching porn, acting out fantasies and using toys such as whips and chains.
Having sex outdoors is also high on the agenda for the single lady. The survey found that they are more likely to have sex in the garden or in the car.
It appears that married couples just can’t wait to get to the sex, as they will only spend 10 minutes on foreplay, whereas singles will spend 12 minutes.
Nearly half of all singletons have at least one sex session a week and one in ten singles will use five different positions in each session!
In comparison, those who are married will often only stick to the missionary position and will rarely use more than one position during sex.
If you’re from Liverpool, the survey says that you’re more likely to favour the doggy style position, whereas Cockney girls find it better on top.
One in ten posh girls from Oxford like it better standing up, and one in twenty Bristol ladies stay true to their farming roots and prefer the wheelbarrow position.
Sylvia said, “Single people might be leading a more adventurous sex life, but it seems women can be more confident in the bedroom when they embark on a relationship, [but] these two things don’t have to be mutually exclusive!”
