Joggers’ sex lives ‘more active’

London, March 11 (ANI): A new British survey has revealed that joggers have more active sex lives than non-runners.

The survey, which questioned 1,000 runners and 1,000 non-runners, found that one in ten joggers have sex at least once a day and three per cent of joggers said they have sex twice a day.

Amongst those who never run, one in four said they had sex once a month or less.

The poll, carried out for healthcare charity Sue Ryder Care, also found that one in ten male runners think about sex while exercising.

On the other hand, only five per cent of woman said they think about sex while running and almost half spend their time thinking about how the exercise is benefitting them.

In the survey, a quarter of joggers admitted going running to help them flirt with the opposite sex in a trend branded ‘flunning’.

More than a third said they have managed to strike up a conversation with someone of the opposite sex while running.

“Last year runners raised over 500,000 pounds for Sue Ryder Care so we wanted to find out what motivates people to run,” the Telegraph quoted Laura Savory, Running and Events Manager at Sue Ryder Care, as saying.

“We were tickled to discover this new craze which seems to have really caught on everywhere. We estimate that there are almost 600,000 flunners in the UK. It’s a great opportunity for single runners to get out there and find their lovematch.

“We’re hoping this will encourage more Brits to get running,” Savory added. (ANI)
