People 'no longer smoke after sex'

People are no longer choosing to smoke immediately after having sex with their partner, a new study has found.

Carried out for, the survey revealed just three per cent of those questioned decide to light up once the fun is over and the condom disposed of, the Sun reports.

And while one-quarter of respondents said they tend to fall asleep straight after a spot of hanky panky, more than one-third admitted sending a text message is the first port of call as they start to cool down.

A spokesman for the electronic cigarette company noted: "With the growing tendency for people to smoke outside, it seems many couples do not fancy popping out into the cold after romping under the covers."

The poll revealed women in particular are keen to check their mobiles prior to settling down for sleep, with 43 per cent admitting they often think about Twitter when their sex session is done.
