New research has revealed what men and women enjoy most when it comes to sex.

A survey of over 2,000 people by dating site Illicit Encounters found that women are more likely to seek romance from sex, while men are more excited by a new sexual partner.

Women also revealed that they enjoy sex as a relief from stress, reporting that sex stopped them from worrying about their lives and problems in the world.

After the thrill of a new sexual experience, men's favorite thing about sex is the feeling of euphoria from an orgasm.

Commenting on the findings, Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert with IllicitEncounters.com, said: β€œThe results show big differences in what men and women most enjoy about sex. For lots of women, sex is a way to bond with their partner, improve their mood and self-confidence and reduce their stress levels. Men value all those things about sex but they put their physical satisfaction right at the top of their priorities.”

89% of women and 92% of men said that good sex was key to a happy relationship. However, less than a third of men and women said that they tell their partners what they love about sex. The majority of men and women agreed thatΒ their sex life could be improved if they talked about sex more and told their partner what they desired the most.
