It might be odd to think that there is a specific month where, up and down the country, our sex life schedules are all falling into sync with each other. However, that's exactly what is happening according to a new study from LoveHoney.

The sex toy brand found that people tend to have to most sexual activity in July, rather than any other month.

The recent survey of 2,000 people quizzed couples and singles on how often they have sex in each month of the year, and which month they find the sexiest. 22% of couples responded that July was their 'sexiest month', due to a more 'relaxed' feeling and the prospect of summer holidays ahead.

Couples reported having sex four times a week in July, an average of 3.7 times a week in August, and 3.2 times a week in June.

August coming in second is likely linked to the fact that almost two thirds of couples say they have more sex when they’re on holiday. 26% of those polled said they wanted to have sex more while on holiday because they have more time to spare.

A Lovehoney spokesperson said: 'Sexual activity tends to peak in the summer months with July the peak month. That’s because we tend to feel happier and more optimistic when the weather is good and the nights are long.'

Plus, the sun-filled days help boost our hormones and lead us to feel friskier.

And our least sex-filled months?

Well, according to the survey it's January and November – notoriously chilly months – when we have sex the least, with the average reported dropping to 2.3 times a week and 2.1 times a week, respectively.
