Casting aside the myth that Brits are a prudish bunch, a new survey has revealed that doggy style is the nation’s favourite sex position.

As many as a quarter of UK adults surveyed said doggy style was their favourite way to indulge with a partner.

Missionary, which is sometimes scoffed at the most boring position, was favoured by a fifth of the 1,000 people surveyed by high street sex shop Ann Summers, seeing it come in as third under "woman on top".

The poll also revealed how when 66 per cent of people get steamy in bed, they act out at least two or three positions in one session, The Mirror reported.

And despite all the modern distractions which can blight relationships, over a third of respondents said they had sex two to four times a week.

The survey results come after it was revealed that 81 per cent of women and 77 per cent of men have shared and acted out fantasies with a partner – with having sex in public topping the list of turn-ons.

The poll of 1,300 people by the Lovehoney sex toy retailer also revealed that three quarters of women and over half of men have played out a fantasy they’d found in a book, with 68 per cent of women and 63 per cent of men re-enacting their sexual dreams.
