According to a research conducted on 15,000 Britons, people aged 16-44 were having sex lesser than five times a month, the BBC reported.

The authors of the study said that modern life may be having an impact on libidos as people are worried about their jobs, about money which kills their mood for sex.

Dr. Cath Mercer, from University College London said that modern technologies are behind the trend too as more people are taking their tablets and smart-phones into the bedroom to use Twitter, Facebook and answering emails.

The survey carried out by NatCen Social Research and analyzed by researchers from University College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine suggested that couples aged 16 to 44 may be using online porn as a substitute for sex.
