It’s no longer women bailing out of late night intimacy with cries of headaches, stomach cramps and baby-related exhaustion.

These days men are actually more likely to be the ones saying ‘not tonight, darling’, with 62 per cent saying they turn down sex more frequently than their female partner, according to research.

New research from an online pharmacy in the UK has revealed that, despite common stereotypes, men are more likely to turn down intercourse with their partner than women – with ‘tiredness’ and ‘work stress’ cited as the most common male ‘sexcuses.

The study, conducted by ukmedix.com, polled 1,922 British men aged over 18 and in a long-term relationship, and was conducted after the site noticed a marked increase in searches for libido enhancing medication throughout the first half of January.

Respondents were asked questions relating to their sex life with their partner. Those taking part were asked who turned down sex more frequently, them or their partner, and 62 per cent of men polled said they did.

That majority was then asked what their most frequent ‘sexcuses’ were – namely, the reasons they gave their partner for not wanting sex.

The five most popular being that they were too tired (45 per cent), stressed about work (39 per cent), had a headache (39 per cent), felt too full after dinner (29 per cent), or there was something good on TV (24 per cent).

In contrast, when asked to give the genuine reasons they turned down intimacy, the top five included feeling uncomfortable about his body (38 per cent) and having a low libido (35 per cent).

The men taking part in the study were asked how frequently they had sex with their partner, to which the most common answer, for 42 per cent of men, was once a fortnight.

Just one in ten (nine per cent) of men claimed to have sex with their partner daily, while 25 per cent claimed to be intimate with their other half on average once a month.

Thomas O’Connell of ukmedix.com, commented on the findings: ‘Common stereotype would have us believe that it’s usually the fairer sex rolling out the not tonight darling’ line, but according to our results this is far from the truth.

‘According to our results, men up and down the UK are most frequently turning down intimacy, and to see the differences in “sexcuses” given and the real reasons for turning down sex was quite revealing.

‘It seems that men aren’t often honest with their partner about their reasons for avoiding intimacy, and it’s not work stress or tiredness getting men down; but confidence and libido issues.

‘Whatever is getting in the way, we’d always suggest that men seek help to boost their love lives. There is no “normal” and how often couples get intimate is completely up to them, but if problems are affecting your love life, it’s always best to seek help rather than letting your love life suffer.’

    I kinda disagree don’t know on kinda men they did the test on but In general, it is an innate thing, but our differences can help us to grow. Both men and women like sex, but men tend to enjoy sex more than women and to want it more often. On the other hand, both men and women like cuddling, but women tend to enjoy cuddling more than men and to want it more often.

    As a man, your boyfriend finds it very easy to achieve sexual arousal and orgasm. As a woman, this is not true for you. Most women don’t have an orgasm every time they have sex. I’ve read that about 70% of women tend to have orgasms less than 50% of the time. Even women who have orgasms regularly tend to have them only 50% to 70% of the time.

    Your boyfriend probably cares about you and wants you to feel as good as he does, especially during intercourse. However, he needs to understand that your sexuality is much more based on mental factors than his is. If he puts too much pressure on you to have an orgasm, the stress can cause you not to have one.

    If you don’t have an orgasm, that is not a negative reflection on him or on you. Keep in mind that even when you don’t have an orgasm, the glass is still mostly full. If you feel emotionally connected with your boyfriend during your lovemaking, that can be more important than having an orgasm. He enjoys the feeling of ejaculation a great deal, and you know that you pleased the man that you love so much. You feel good as well.

    As mentioned above, women tend to enjoy cuddling and other nonsexual touching more than men. Make sure that your needs in this part of your relationship are met. You may be more of the giver during sex, and he may be more of the giver during cuddling.
