No pints, no pulling: does the death of the pub spell the end of sex? | Life and style | The Guardian

No pints, no pulling: does the death of the pub spell the end of sex? | Life and style | The Guardian | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The writer Emily Hill is reminiscing about happy times at The Rose pub near Snowsfields in south London 10 years ago. The smoking ban came into force in July 2007, and this ushered in an era of under-the-radar revelry, when late nights were alight with the glimmer of romantic opportunity.

“You’d get to the end of the night and, instead of going home, they’d lock the doors and everybody would get their cigarettes out,” says Hill, 35. “That was when the romance really happened.”

Britons having less sex and digital life may be to blame – study | Life and style | The Guardian

Britons having less sex and digital life may be to blame – study | Life and style | The Guardian | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Sex is on the decline in Britain, particularly among married and cohabiting couples, according to a major study that suggests the increasingly busy lives we lead and distractions of the internet may be partly to blame.

The data comes from more than 34,000 people in the UK who took part in three waves of a large study called Natsal (national surveys of sexual attitudes and lifestyles). It shows a fall in sexual activity from 2001 to 2012 in all groups, with the steepest decline among the over-25s and those who are married or cohabiting.
