That was according to the authors of the research, Lovehoney, who ranked where sexual activity is the highest.

A spokesman for the brand said: “Newport is the UK’s 286th sexiest place with a rise in sexual activity since lockdown.

“We have seen a surge in activity in South Wales as singles and couples look to escape the pressures of lockdown by experiments more sexually.


“All our data shows that couples with great sex lives enjoy higher levels of happiness.”

The figures are based on Lovehoney’s extensive data on the UK’s sexual behaviour.

Lovehoney, the UK’s biggest sex toy retailer, is booming with sales of more than £100 million annually.

In April, the Bath-based firm received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for boosting UK exports.
