The nation’s sex and relationship habits have been revealed.

A new survey by Take a Break magazine has unveiled what’s really going on behind closed doors and uncovered some surprising results. Based on a sample of 2,303, of which 2075 were females and 226 males, responses were collected via the magazine, online and social media platforms.

So where do you fit in with what was discovered?

The survey found that Londoners are having the most sex, the Scots are the most adventurous, Northerners are the most loyal and trusting while those living in the South West are having the least sex and are least likely to sleep in the same bed as their partner.

Perhaps least surprising of all the results was that social media is increasingly affecting our relationships. Those living in the West Midlands have argued the most with their partner about a picture or a post on social media while 36% of those living in Scotland admitted to looking at their partner’s ex on social media. We've all been there thought right?

Commenting on the results, Editor Rebecca Fleming said: 'We asked our readers to tell us what really goes on in Britain's bedrooms - and they didn't hold back. The results of our survey are fascinating, shocking - and utterly compelling. It's made us all view our relationships in a new light.'

And these weren't the only findings. Check out some of the other rather enlightening facts and figures:

**25 per cent **of those surveyed don’t always sleep in the same bed as their partner while 4% say they don’t ever sleep in the same bed as their partner.
