Spice Up Lockdown Love Life...
Let's face it, love in lockdown is not exactly passion fuelled... at this stage we’re sick of the sight of each other and it’s time to drastically spice things up.

It feels like the 11-week itch. At the start of this whole thing we were thinking we’d be at it like rabbits.

But when you’re glued to each other in a confined space, with kids hanging off you 24/7, it’s hardly a recipe for romance.

I started an experiment recently to not wash my hair for a week and see if jumping into the sea every evening would give my hair a sea salt surfer look, but alas it ended up bedraggled.

I think my partner was just dying for me to have a shower, so much so that after a week of jumping into the sea I had to wash it and my partner said: “Oh, thank God your hair doesn’t feel like straw anymore.” We both live in our tracksuits during the day and don the dressing gowns at night. The active slob wear is a desire death knell for couples across the country

So it’s time to take drastic action to jazz things up.

New research by OnBuy found that almost half of couples isolating together report they are having less sex since lockdown began.

The quality has dipped too with 41% of women unhappy with their sex life and three in five saying it needs jazzing up.
