How raunchy is your local area? A study by Lovehoney pinpoints regions in the UK that see the most sexual activity.
Researchers looked into data from 1,551 UK towns and cities to see which areas spent the most on kinky toys and accessories.
And apparently, Andover in Hampshire is the sexiest place in the UK.
People living in the location have shown an interest in bondage, vibrators and other sex toys.
A spokesperson for Lovehoney said: “Andover in Hampshire is the UK’s sexiest place with the biggest rise in sexual activity over the past year.
“We have seen a huge surge in activity as couples use sex as a stress-buster to escape the pressures of the pandemic.”
The spokesperson added: “All our research shows that couples with great sex lives enjoy higher overall levels of happiness.”
Andover wasn’t the only racy region though – with Tidworth in Wiltshire and Cornhill-upon-Tweed in Northumberland ranking in second and third place.
While Tidworth townsfolk are keen on roleplaying and dressing up, Cornhill-upon-Tweed locals are said to love strap ons.
Then when it came to least sexy regions, Nelson in Lancashire took the top spot.
Smethwick in the West Midlands and Surrey’s Thornton Heath also showed little interest in kinky toys, research revealed.
