The more you sleep, the better sex you'll have - study

2 February 2017 2:18 PM
When your partner tells you "not tonight, I'm tired.", you should take it seriously.

You need to get better sleep to have better sex, according to a study.

The study confirms an association between shorter sleep duration, higher insomnia symptoms and decreased sexual function in post-menopausal women.

Research found that women over 50 who suffer from insomnia are less likely to be satisfied with their sexual relationships.

However, those who achieve more than seven hours’ sleep are more likely to have good sex on a regular basis.

Presenter Azania Mosaka asked 702 listeners the various excuses they have used to get out being intimate, including:

  • tummy aches
  • a new hairdo which can't be spoiled
  • waking up the kids
  • fasting
  • menstrual cycles
  • stiff legs from gym
