Times sex columnist Dr Thomas Stuttaford offered sobering advice to a woman concerned about her husbands unimaginative love-making abilities this week, urging her to take solace from a ten year old survey which asked randomly selected women how many men they thought were good lovers.
None of the women thought that more than one in three men could be described as good in bed," the Doctor explained, Some of them, who might be described as more than averagely sexually experienced, concluded that about only one man in ten was a good lover.
The shocking statistics appeared as award winning (female) Brit sex blogger turned best selling author Abby Lee (aka Zoe Margolis) announced she is moving to New York after becoming seriously disillusioned with shy British blokes.
"I find Englishmen's half-hearted approach to dating so tiresome," the 33 year old writer of best selling treatise Girl With a One-Track Mind: Confessions of the Seductress Next Door told Reuters.
"The only way Englishmen can relate to women is when they're drunk. I've met some really open-minded guys in the U.S., where in England there is much more of a laddish, soccer culture, she complained
In more British dysfunctional sex news, the Telegraph ran an in-depth feature on the growing phenomenon of asexuality this week, quoting another 10 year old survey which suggested over 500,000 Brits could be closet celibates.
"Asexuality is not something that needs curing and it's nothing new, sex psychologist Petra Boynton told the paper.
In fact, it's something that sex researchers have been aware of for some time. The reason it hasn't been investigated more is that asexuals are not the ones that cause issues. If you're not having sex and that doesn't trouble you, then that's completely fine, she pointed out.
