When England get their Euros campaign underway against Russia tonight, they won’t be the only ones looking to score.
We’re used to wondering whether England’s players are being hindered by their sexual exploits, but it turns out England fans are just as bad as Wayne Rooney and co.
That’s because thanks to a study into men’s sexual libido, Lloyds Pharmacy has found that the nation is more likely to get lucky in the bedroom if their chosen team wins that day.
According to the study of 2,000 football fans, the research has shown that:
- When asked if their team’s performance would hinder or enhance their own sex life, 88 per cent of England fans believe that they will see a considerable improvement in the bedroom as a result of an England win.
- And when it comes to partners, it looks like most of us will be sacking off our other halves in favour of the Euros, with 25 per cent admitting that they’d spend more time watching Roy’s boys than spending time with their significant other.
- 34 per cent are willing to give up sex or drinking, if it means their team will go further in the competition.
- Almost 60 per cent plan on exceeding the recommended daily limit of alcohol during any given Euro 2016 fixture.
As well as the facts and figures, Lloyds Pharmacy’s Online Doctor has launched an online Euro Sex Formulator to give men the chance to find out how the Euros may impact their own sex life this summer.
But it’s not just winning that affects bedroom activity, as 35 per cent of men have admitted using a major tournament as an excuse to not have sex, while 10 per cent will avoid any sex if a match hasn’t gone their way.
Now I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly guilty of binning off my girlfriend if there’s an England game on – or even Albania’s first game at the Euros, so it’s nice to know I’m not alone.
