SEXplanation | The UK's Most Searched For Sex Questions

Sex: we all do it. But it’s not always the most comfortable thing to talk about, meaning a lot of us have turned to Google to answer our burning questions. The search engine has been there for all of our R-rated questions, giving us reassurance, tips and advice.

But what exactly have we been asking? We’ve looked at Google search data to find out, and asked Jess Wilde, one of the UK’s most well-known sexperts, to come on board and answer some of our most pressing questions.

The UK’s Most Searched Sex Questions

With over 84,000 annual searches, ‘How to Have Sex?’ is the UK’s most searched sex question. For anyone worried to ask such a seemingly basic question, don’t worry as there are clearly a lot of other people out there who also want to know the answer.

Sexual Health

The UK’s Most Searched Sexual Health Questions

UK residents seem to be most concerned with contraception relating to their sexual health, followed by questions around pleasure, sex drive and how often they should be having sex.

Sexpert Jess Wilde answered the question ‘How to Increase Sex Drive?’ for us:

“Sex drive depends on a number of factors, from overall health and hormone levels to diet, medication, sleep quality, stress levels and more. Not to mention each person's chemical makeup is totally individual to them and, as such, so is their sex drive. That being said, people usually say their sex drive is highest when they're feeling good, have minimal stress in their lives and are living a healthy, active lifestyle. This means that eating a healthy diet and looking after your body is vital in maintaining your natural, baseline sex drive.

“Certain foods (aphrodisiacs) have been reported to help increase sex drive. Foods such as avocados, chocolate, figs, strawberries and, of course, oysters have been known to increase serotonin levels and enhance mood. Aside from food, there are several herbal remedies on the market which promise to boost sex drive when taken alongside a normal, healthy diet, however, as with all ingesitbles, it's worth noting that results can vary from person to person.

“A sudden change in your sex drive can be a symptom of an underlying issue and in this instance should always speak to your doctor.”

Sexual Intercourse

The UK’s Most Searched Sexual Intercourse Questions

‘How to Have Sex?’ is the UK’s most searched sexual intercourse question, with 80,400 annual searches. Brits are also apparently interested in combining their workout activities with their romantic affairs, as the second most searched question is ‘How Many Calories Does Sex Burn?’ (18,000).

How Many Calories Does Sex Burn?

No one knows! I see various answers to this question in the press all the time, but my question is: how could anyone possibly know the answer? There are too many variables to consider. How long did the sex last? What position were they in? Did they change positions? How fast were they going? Did one person take the lead or the other person take over part way through? This is, in my eyes, an unanswerable question.

Beyond the above, what does it even matter?! Sex has many purposes (for fun, pleasure, intimacy, self-esteem, making babies) but if there's one way to make it about as interesting as a paper bag it's to turn it into a calorie-counting exercise routine. Yes, sex can be a great way to get some extra cardio in, but I prefer to think of that as a bonus and instead focus my attention on the much more immediate benefits to be enjoyed.

Brits third most searched for sexual intercourse question is ‘How to Prepare for Anal Sex?’ which was searched for 15,600 times, followed by ‘How to Have Anal Sex?’ (14,400). Clearly, preparation is key…

The UK’s Most Searched Sexual Organs Questions

British men appear to be concerned with size, as their top two most searched questions, which are both asked 18,000 times annually, are ‘How to Measure Penis?’ and ‘How to Get a Bigger Penis?’. We’re noticing a theme here.

Clearly still concerned about size, Brits third most searched question is ‘How Deep is a Vagina?’ (13,200) followed by ‘When Does Your Penis Stop Growing?’ (12,000) and ‘How to Get Bigger Boobs?’ (10,800).

Remember, size doesn’t matter!
