It looks like not much action takes place inside the bedroom, for according to a new survey an average couple spends almost two and a half months of their entire lives having sex.
The survey, carried out for a bedroom furniture firm, revealed that the average couple almost 25 years of their lives in bed - but just two and a half months romping.
We sleep for 18 years and ten months, but are more likely to spend the rest of the time talking, watching TV, surfing the net or reading, the survey found, reports The Sun.
And romping comes a poor tenth on the list of things we do in the sack, the poll of 2,000 people found.
The survey also showed that we spend 28 minutes a night talking, 19 minutes watching TV and 16 minutes reading - but only 35 minutes a week having sex.
The survey also found we work for ten minutes a night.
