A survey has revealed that as women find less time for a romp in the sack with their partners, their love making ways grow wilder.
Most women have to face long work hours and then get home to look after the children or catch up with the housework, leaving them feeling weary and definitely not in the mood for sex.
But now more and more are trying to make up for it by making full use of the little time they have.
For instance, around 76 per cent of women now admit to using porn - a ten per cent rise on the two-thirds of girls who admitted to watching porn with their partners in a survey last year.
The most popular format is online porn, which is watched by 61 per cent of couples. Just one couple in 20 looks at magazines, while 18 per cent get their kicks watching porn DVDs on the telly.
The survey of 4,200 women also revealed four in five women like to dress up for their other halves and indulge in role play.
The most popular outfit is a French maid, used by 42 per cent, followed by nurses, chosen by a quarter of women, and policewomen's uniforms used by 16 per cent of couples.
More than half of the women surveyed used sex toys in the bedroom to add a buzz of excitement.
Women are also becoming more satisfied with their sex lives.
Last year's survey, by website Netmums, showed more than half weren't happy in the bedroom, but this year more than 60 per cent claimed to enjoy fulfilling sex.
The survey also shows women are becoming more self-centred in the bedroom, with more than half saying the pleasure they get from sex is the most important part of a healthy sex life.
Just five per cent of women surveyed were concerned with how long their partner can keep going.
"Mums are no longer content with lying back and thinking of England," the Sun quoted Siobhan Freegard, the founder of Netmums, as saying.
"They have busy family lives and careers to juggle. So while they might not be having as much sex as they'd like, they want to ensure they make the most of the precious time they do get.
"Our survey shows they are taking control in the bedroom.
"They know what to do to get their sex lives back on track and are not afraid to experiment and introduce new methods to spice things up," Freegard added.
