Cowart's Common Room
Sex or sleep??

According to some new research around 75 percent of us (in Britain) would rather sleep than have sex..... Didn't surprise me in the slightest -Very Happy - but what do you reckon? Straw poll required, I feel.

Salle de Bain's Avatar Well I read somewhere that a huge percentage of women would rather have a cup of tea (or a G&T) than sex.

Pass the Schweppes will you honey?

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I thought the choice was sex or chocolate - there I've said it! (Chocolate, that is, not sex)
Of course if you arrange things properly there is no reason why you shouldn't have them all - G&T, followed by chocolate, then sex, then sleep and later a good cup of tea! There! Perfect. If rushed for time - well the sex will have to go.

Preseli Mags's Avatar Both! (But not at the same time! Rolling Eyes) My husband assures me that having sex helps you to get to sleep. It works for him anyway!

Elizabethm's Avatar Yep, I'm with preseli mags on this one - sex and sleep. If anything has to go make it television.

Faith's Avatar You'll never a straight answer on this one Jane!Laughing

Since I never sleep well anyway, then I might as well have the sex!

In preference during the day it would be chocolate with a mug of tea - in fact eating a dark Bounty now (yes diet gone a bit haywire) and then later on more tea, and then sex and then sleep. I don't mind sex in the mornings either, but like a swig of tea first!

LittleBrownDog's Avatar My mug is ABSOLUTELY HUGE, Jane. Keeps me going all morning Wink. Thanks for reminding me - am contemplating a top-up even as I type...
