British women aren’t having good sex even with all those sexy accents

In a first-of-its-kind survey called “What Do Women Say?” it came to light that for British women, sex sucks. Yes, even with all those sexy AF accents.

Completed by Public Health England, nearly 50 percent of women between the ages of 16-64 who responded to the survey expressed a “lack of sexual enjoyment.” (Says the women of a nation who spawned men like Mr. Bean and Keith Richards.)

Considered by the study as a “reproductive health symptom” alongside menstrual issues and menopausal symptoms, sexual enjoyment proved to be a more pressing issue for women between the ages of 25-34. However, good news as you age, women 55-64 had less of an issue with getting off and digging it ... or at least failed to mention this as an issue while completing the survey.

Despite this terribly sad news, it seems the UK has been losing its sexual swagger for almost a decade now. Back in 2008, the Observer undertook a comprehensive survey of British sexual behavior and attitudes and followed up six years later to find the collective sexual satisfaction of those surveyed kept going limp and declining.

A cringe-worthy 43 percent of those surveyed by the Observer rated their last sexual partner as “Average,” and only 16 percent said they were a “very good lover.”

Unlike the Observer, the most recent Public Health England survey may shed light on exactly why women are not having their sex and enjoying it too.

The answer: other reproductive health issues and the embarrassment to seek help.

In fact, the study showed that British women are first and foremost concerned with unwanted pregnancy before they are concerned with the va-va-voom of satisfaction. They’re also worried and were afflicted by heavy, painful periods that often affected work performance.

Perhaps having to think about a condom or pill is killing the mood, as surveyed women showed most who were sexually active use at least one method of contraception. Or perhaps British men need to buy new toothbrushes and take their lady out for a carefree night on the town ... or at least get her a Big Ben to play with at home.

But more than leaning on the actions of your partner (who are likely as clueless as you believe them to be) the purpose of the new survey was to show women that going to a doctor to talk about sexual enjoyment and other reproductive issues is well worth the trip on the tube.
