Survey: Women's sex fears revealed

We may have gone through the sexual revolution but for most women, inhibitions still overshadow sex, a study has revealed.

According to the survey by Cosmopolitan, sexual confidence is high with six in 10 women (60%) considering themselves good in bed.

But wobbly bits, fat tummies and stretch marks remain obstacles for many - 73% of those surveyed claimed body paranoia was a black cloud in the bedroom.

Despite this, the study found a third of women were having the best sex of their lives with 50% stating that it was "getting better".

Only 1% of British women described their sex life as a "no-go disaster area".

And according to the findings, women put a lot of effort into livening up their sex lives with 50% dressing up, taking part in role play, taking sexy snaps or getting amorous in public places.

In a regional breakdown, the North East appeared to be the best place for bedroom gymnastics with the highest number of women - 35% - saying sex was better than ever.

But their counterparts in the capital were less satisfied with four in 10 - 40% - complaining it did not happen often enough.

Sexual preferences were also found to differ widely across the UK.

Scottish women were found to brave the cold more than any others, with 58% enjoying frisky alfresco adventures, while S&M was most popular in Wales - enjoyed by 23% of women.
