Young British women are aping their male counterparts with many preferring to spend a night in front of the television rather than having sex with their partners a new survey has shown.

One in four of women aged 25-35 would rather watch a good film on video than spend the evening frolicking with their loved ones, the Hitachi Home Electronics report showed.

Older women are only slightly more amorous with one in five women aged 35-45 still choosing TV over sex.

The report found that men in the north face the stiffest competition from the small screen, with 26% of women in the region - compared to 15% in the Midlands - believing watching TV is more satisfying that having sex.

The survey, which interviewed 600 women across Britain, also investigated attitudes to the latest home entertainment technology and revealed that in the UK, women fall into the two categories - Technotarts and Technovirgins.

It revealed that 24% of women are Technotarts who own or who plan to own a DVD player in the next six months but that a large percentage of women are lagging behind when it comes to technology.
