Eating your favourite foods is a pleasure that we love to enjoy and savour, in fact a lot would take this over a time in the bedroom.
A new study conducted by Today and Match.com, found that one in three singles admitted that they would rather go without sex for a year than their favourite food.
What was more surprising though was the fact that some would be happy to give up sex for a salad, revealed the Love Bites: Dating and Dining Survey in which 4,000 people took part.
However, it seems that it’s not just single people who are having an unsatisfactory relationship with sex.
The survey also questioned an extra 3,500 married individuals and found that 28 per cent of these would chose their perfect meal than a bit of sexual action.
As if the results were not depressing enough, while a majority of respondents willing to sacrifice sex did so for steak and chocolate, some were comfortable and willing to give it up for a salad, sushi and fresh fruit.
In reaction to the comments made by the interviewees, sex therapist and author Ian Kerner told MSNBC: “People often say things like they’d pick money or sleep or food over sex.
“I think this shoes that people take sex for granted, or that they’re not enjoying sex to really value it appropriately.”
“If you find yourself picking food over sex, perhaps you need to approach sex a bit more like food and vary your diet.”
