A new Mail on Sunday survey reveals that they would rather have a shopping spree or sunshine holiday than sex.

The results comes in from a sex survey carried out exclusively for today’s You magazine.

Asked if they would rather give up shopping or sex, 59 per cent of those surveyed chose sex, with only 41 per cent saying they could do without their retail therapy.

And when it came to a choice of sex or holidays, a huge 75 per cent put sex second behind their sunshine break.

However, the results of You magazine’s 2018 Sex Survey also show that a clear majority of women in their 40s and 50s are happier with their sex lives now than they were in their 20s.

What would YOU prefer? Shopping, holiday or sex?

  • Why does it have to be a choice? All things are enjoyable and can be done together. I’m not sure I would/could choose one over the other


  • Why not go on holiday together, do some shopping together and have some sex. You shouldn’t have to choose


  • Some very interesting comments on here. I wonder what % of each age group was surveyed.
    I would imagine that would explain some of the results


  • Not sure what order I’d put them in. Probably holiday, shopping then sex. All depends on my mood at the time.


  • Interesting. Depends on the day.


  • I’d rather get my toenails pulled out than go shopping. But a holiday without husband or children so I can catch up on the sleep I’ve missed out on for the past 5 years would be much better than sex!


  • I would prefer shopping whilst on holiday followed by sex!!


  • Shopping is on the bottom of my list!

    • I prefer time with loved ones over shopping any day!


  • Now that is an interesting question, lol.


  • A holiday where you can shop and have sex :)


  • Haha hilarious but probably true!
