Are you having as much sex as you want to? If the answer is no, you are not alone.

According to YouGov polling, 20 per cent of us are having sex a few times a week or more - whereas 56 per cent would like to be having this much. That leaves a deficit overall 34 per cent.

The gap lowers with age, with 18-24 year olds have a 41 per cent deficit between the amount of sex they are having and the amount of sex they want, compared to a 23 per cent deficit for those who are 60+.

YouGov surveyed 1,523 people and you can see the full results here.
