Women would rather eat takeaway than have sex with their partners on Valentine’s night, poll finds


A QUARTER of Brits say the “perfect” Valentine’s night ends in sex, according to a survey.

A poll of 2,000 men and women asked them to list their top five activities for a dream February 14th.

Most men would like a drink, a meal and sex.  

But the majority of women would prefer a TAKEAWAY and a bottle of wine to a night of steaming passion.

The research was carried out by Lottoland ahead of tonight’s Lotto Plus draw.

CEO Nigel Birrell said: “If you’re looking for a way to impress your date this Valentine’s Day, this survey proves that you don’t need to be flash.”

The top five Valentine’s Day activities for men and women:

Women’s top five

  1. Meal in a restaurant
  2. Takeaway and a bottle of wine
  3. A good conversation
  4. Sex with partner
  5. Reading a book

Men’s top five:

  1. Meal in a restaurant
  2. Sex with partner
  3. A drink in the local pub
  4. Takeaway and a bottle of wine
  5. Watching sport on TV


Mr Birrell said: “It’s great to see that spending the evening with our partners is a strong favourite, and clearly, we just want to do things together in a world where we are glued to our smartphones and our collective idea of indulgence is binge watching a box set online.

“It’s nice to see that our top five evenings involve nothing but good old fashioned favourites like spending time with loved ones and having a slap up meal – no technology required.”

The study was carried out by OnePoll.
