f you’re curious about how your sex life measures up to the rest of Britain, it might be wise to start a tally.
A new study by cashback site Quidco has revealed the average Brit has sex a total of 5,778 times before they die.
Using the national life expectancy of 83 years, the research also revealed that Brits will fall in love 6.5 times and have eight romantic partners.
But don’t get too excited – we’ll be dumped 5.5 times and have six unrequited loves – which doesn’t make much sense considering we fall in love just 0.5 times more. Meaning when we do find the one, we only really half love them. Which is kind of depressing.
Don’t worry, though. The study of almost 2,000 Brits also says we’ll wash down the misery of being dumped and only half falling in love with 3,386 trips to the pub. But as a result, we’ll have 1,793 hangovers and a £66,732 bill from all that alcohol, the Huffington Post reports.
According to the report, we’ll also sleep for 181,770 hours (20.8 years), work for 136,328 (15.6 years), take 2,689 selfies and spend an average of 52,502 hours (six years) on social media before we die.
And while 84 per cent of participants said they are ‘generally happy’ with their lifestyle, the data suggests the average Brit will still cry 2,490 times and have 2,888 arguments during their lifetime.
Going to the pub, browsing through Instagram and sleeping in didn’t seem so bad before these results were revealed…
