London: When it comes to sex, most women prefer to make love precisely at 11.21 p.m. before hitting the sack while men love to get romantic at 7.54 a.m. for a perfect office start, an interesting survey reveals.
The findings showed that women experience their highest sex drive from 11 p.m. till 2 a.m. while men prefer to get romantic early in the morning from 5 a.m. till 9 a.m.
"Men are ready for sex just before breakfast whereas women most want passion last thing at night," Richard Longhurst, Lovehoney co-owner, was quoted as saying in a Daily Mail report.
The survey of over 2,300 people in Britain also found that people tend to settle down with partners who have similar sex drives to their own.
The survey, conducted by sex toy brand Lovehoney, revealed that 68 per cent of women and 63 per cent of men have dated someone whose sex drive was different from their own.
"It is no wonder that couples can sometimes struggle to maintain a healthy sex life when they feel frisky at such different times," noted the survey that looked at couples' mismatched sex drives.
While men feel at their friskiest first thing in the morning, just 11 per cent of women feel most passionate at this time.
Desire levels for women rise throughout the day and reach their peak between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., it said.
Only 16 per cent of men want to make love just before they go to sleep, the findings showed.
Almost two-thirds of women and half of men said they wanted sex as much as their current partner.
Just over half of men said their sex drive was pretty constant, compared to just 36 per cent of women, who said their sex drive was driven by their moods.
