Sex News: Sexuality survey reveals shocking insights into women’s desires

Ohtique Women's Sex Survey Results

Ohtique – the online erotic boutique for modern women – have recently conducted a sexual survey and the results are shocking. Not that any woman wants to feel like a mere statistic, but I found it interesting to discover a few facts about myself in the following results, as well as the survey being an interesting insight into female sexuality and attitudes as a whole.

1 in every 5 women in the UK never feel sexy.

This is perhaps the most shocking of the survey results. Over 21% of all women in the UK never feel sexy. Never! Surely all women deserve to feel sexy at least some of the time. God knows I have plenty of moments where I feel about as sexy as a brick (not Samantha), but getting dolled up, doing my hair or getting my nails done can really help. Even luxuriating alone in a lush bubble bath can raise the libido and lower stress levels.

A whopping 70% of women admitted that not feeling sexy is negatively affecting their relationship.

When your feelings start to impact on your relationship, you know it’s time to try to find a solution that effectively works for your personal mentality. Retail therapy is the vestige of many a woman. Whether it’s buying new lingerie, shoes, makeup… a sandwich… whatever works for you, go get it. Funds may be limited but even a new £5 lipstick can perk you up and make you feel like you’re making more of an effort to keep your partner’s interest.

It’s not all about buying happiness, of course, as much as we’d all love a day boutique shopping. Communicating your feelings to your partner instead of keeping them under wraps can often help, as their reassurances help you to deal with your emotions. Even if you find it incredibly difficult to ever feel sexy, it is surely the best course of action for the positive future of your relationship to keep the lines of communication open.

Over 31% of women in the UK would use sex toys to make them feel sexier.

Now this is progress! The figure rose to 38% of women within the age range of 35 to 44. Sex toys are easily accessible thanks to fantastic online stores such as Ohtique, which has been designed especially for the needs of the modern woman. Unlike previous decades, sex toys and vibrators are now becoming far more accepted in the mainstream, and not just for women brave and confident enough to attend an adult lingerie and sex toys party. You can place an order in the comfort of your own home, confidentially, then just sit back and wait for your sex toys to arrive discreetly and safely packaged.

Over 20% of women aged 18 to 24 would consider bondage during sex and roleplay to make them feel sexy.

Bondage is indeed a sexually liberating experience. Physical restriction during foreplay, sexual activity or even non-sexual roleplay with your partner can help you both realise deep seated psychological needs and desires which may never have been mentioned before. All too often, attention is focussed on the physical act of sex, mainly surrounding penetration. By the attention instead turning to the sensual and erotic indulgences of bondage, her fantasies can be brought to life, making her feel completely satisfied in a different way than sexual intercourse.

Make sure you both set a safeword before getting involved with bondage, a word that wouldn’t be said during the course of the roleplay, so you will both have the peace of mind that all bondage roleplay is consensual and wanted at all times.

If you haven’t tried bondage before, now is a great time to start. With the stratospheric popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey and the bondage roleplay therein, kinky sex toys, rope, handcuffs, gags and other bedroom bondage equipment is now highly sought after.
