In 2014 Europeans had less sex than in 2013. The reason? Having a pet in the bed!

A 2014 British survey found that couples who slept with a pet in the bed experienced less sexual intimacy with their partner.


When having a pet in the bed reduces sexual intimacy

The survey highlighted three key reasons for couples' reduced sexual drive. Not surprisingly, these include having a pet in the bed.


1. 37% cited financial stress as a means of reduced intimacy;

2. 34% said the pressure of work impacted their sex drive; and

3. 31% said the presence of the family pet sleeping in the marital bed contributed to a decline in sexual intimacy.


The results highlighted something pretty clear - that it's not advisable to let your pet sleep in the bed if you're looking to increase sexual intimacy in your relationship.


But remember - it is you who must decide whether your pet can sleep in your bed or not, not your fur friend!
