The pandemic ruined our sex lives, but a survey reveals how we’re eyeing up co-workers and turning to romp robots


AFTER a gruelling few years, our libidos are revving up ahead of a sex -filled future.

One in five of us are having more sex than we did before 2020, according to the 2022 Sex Census by Lelo.

The sexual wellness company polled 4,000 adults on their sexual habits over the past 18 months.

Participants were also asked what the future has in store — and the findings make for tantalising reading.

Almost half of us (44 per cent) have had less sex than before — or no sex at all in the past 18 months.

One in ten said they had not so much as kissed another person during that time.

Instead of working from home, 14 per cent are eyeing up co-workers for hookups.

But in the not-so-distant future we may turn to virtual reality porn or even jiggy robots to get our kicks, the survey suggests. 

Market-watchers at investment firm Piper Sandler reckon the VR porn industry will be worth £840million by as soon as 2025.

And one in five of us (22 per cent) would consider getting jiggy with a robot.

If you are struggling with a lean patch in your sex life, sexpert Kate Taylor has eight tips to follow, whether you are coupled-up or single. 

Sex is a great cure for anxiety, lowering levels of the stress chemical cortisol, stabilising the blood pressure and releasing feel-good endorphins.

Too anxious to feel frisky? Start with a topless massage. Skin-on-skin contact releases oxytocin in the body, helping you feel calmer.
