IF YOU fancy watching porn on Valentine’s Day, why not snuggle up to someone from Bexley?  

Residents from this borough are some of the most avid watchers of adult films in the capital (95 per cent said they watched it) and are also the most promiscuous.

And Bromley appears to be the city’s most sexually frustrated borough with residents thought to be having sex only 4.6 times per month.

These are just some of the nuggets from the 10,042 responses to the Time Out Sex Survey 2013, the results of which came out today. The magazine quizzed people from across the capital on their sex habits.

Bexley residents are scoring high with 35 bedpost notches per person, a third more than their nearest rivals, and one in three also confess to having sex because of ambition.

The survey also reveals that three quarters of the respondents from this area earn less than the average London wage.

Greenwich and Lewisham residents are having sex on average 7.2 times a month and 51 per cent of people from Lewisham have had sex with someone the day they met them, compared to only 30 per cent of Bromley residents.

The stats for watching **** are very high. Not that I doubt this number watch **** - just surprises how honest people are. If you ask a woman how often she 'pleasures' herself you won't get such honesty, unless you already know her.
