BORED BRITS are turning to sex parties to escape Brexit.
Saucy events company Killing Kittens revealed a 13 per cent rise in memberships month-on-month since October.
What’s more, waiting lists for their secret soirees have doubled – compared to this time last year.
Founder and CEO Emma Sayle told The Sun: “The world stopped for a moment in 2016 when it was announced we’re headed in to a divorce with the European Union. Brexit was born and it hasn’t stopped crying since.
“However, amongst the current unease for businesses across the UK, we aren’t feeling nervous.
“A business like ours, one that offers escapism from the realities of the everyday norm, thrives when there is political unrest.
“We work regularly with behavioural psychologists who tell us that its standard human nature to, during uncertain times, seek out opportunity to escape and be hedonistic, to unwind and seek out ways to lower stress levels.
“We offer the outlet for just this. As the stress decreases the sex increases and the Kittens thrive. For us it’s a Sexit-Brexit.”
Emma tells how she launched the business fourteen years ago, ahead of the financial crash of 2008.
“We have the insight as a business to be able to compare this to October 2008,” she continues.
“Numbers attending Killing Kittens events doubled then and what we are experiencing now mirrors exactly that.”
The Sun’s sex and relationship columnist, Dr Pam Spurr, says: “It might seem bizarre that there appears to be a link between the political uncertainty in the country right now and a rise in popularity of sex parties but I’m not surprised.
“It has previously been documented that after a national crisis the birth rate goes up nine months down the line.
“It seems that it’s human nature to seek comfort in times of national chaos or after something like a natural disaster. People are feeling at their most insecure.
“This means that the intimacy and intense ‘connection’ and bonding offered by sex gives people the comfort they desperately want.
“So if your thing is group sex or you’re feeling curious, you might turn to sex parties for pleasure but also for that ‘connection’ and bonding that gives you a sense that the world is still okay.”
