Although most respondents plan to get it on in their parents’ home, 67 percent admit they feel uncomfortable doing so, even as an adult. Two-thirds say they are also more likely to spice things up in the bedroom during the holiday season compared to other times during the year. The poll, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Pure Romance, sought to uncover how the holiday magic follows couples into the bedroom. Seventy-seven percent agree that festive, holiday sex is “more magical” than non-holiday sex. Even so, 52 percent of respondents say they have less sex with their partner during the holidays. However, that’s not to say people aren’t making an effort to be intimate. Compared to other times during the year, 69 percent of the poll are more likely to sneak in “a quickie” during the holiday season. When asked what factors decrease their sex life during the holidays, the top deterrents include being too busy spending time with family and friends (67%), stress (60%), and not getting enough sleep (57%).
