The paper, published in the Annals of Tourism Research by academics at the Universities of Surrey and Oxford, said they think autonomous vehicles (AVs) will have a profound effect on our sexual exploits because they are private, comfortable, convenient and (unlike taxis) without a front-seat onlooker. Study author […]

Have you ever watched the football results coming in on a Saturday afternoon and wondered which of the clubs' fans have the most sexual prowess? Nope, us neither. But apparently the people at Football Tips have - perhaps it was a slow news day and they were bored of working out the odds on Tottenham beating Burnley and Man City drawing at The Emirates. Anyway, they polled 3,500 people in the UK about what football team their best and worst ever sexual encounters supported. The respondents […]

Enrique Iglesias claims post-parenthood sex 'is better than ever'

Image: Istock/MaxRiesgo Enrique Iglesias may have unwittingly cheesed off parents everywhere after going on television and insisting that his sex life with partner Anna Kournikova is better than ever since they had twins a year ago. Most mums and dads of one-year-olds tend to collapse into bed bleary-eyed and ready for nothing but shut-eye once bedtime arrives - but not this singer and former tennis player. In fact, Enrique said on Lorraine this week, their intimate relationship is stronger […]
