According to sex toy firm Love Honey, 32 per cent of women surveyed wait three weeks or until at least their fifth date before getting down to business.

The survey saw 2,225 people questioned, and it also found that women were comparatively more reserved than men, in so much that 15 per cent of women would have sex on the first date compared to 26 per cent of men who are good to go on round one.
