`Wedding night sex` is waning

London : A new poll has revealed that one in three newly-weds didn’t consummate their marriage until after the big day, pointing out a decline in wedding night sex.

YouGov survey of the 711 married UK adults showed that nearly half of those surveyed stated fatigue as the main reason and one in five under-40s cited drunkenness as the reason for not making love on the big night, the Independent reported.

Although, more than three-quarters of over 60s did have sex on their wedding night, the reasons for those who didn’t remain the same, with exhaustion topping the list of reasons at 37 per cent, followed by drinking too much at 23 per cent.

Worryingly, eight per cent of 18-to-39-year-olds didn’t actually remember whether they had sex or not, although whether this is down to tiredness, alcoholism or both is unknown. (ANI)
