New Study: Joggers have much more active sex lives than the rest of us

Want to spice up your love life? Better start training for the next New York City marathon then. A recent British survey found joggers have a better sex life — or at least a more active one. The survey, which polled 1,000 runners and 1,000 non-runners, found that one in ten joggers have sex at least once a day and three per cent of joggers said they have sex twice a day. Comparatively that's a lot, considering the one in four non-runners said they have sex once a month or less.  

The poll also found that ten percent of males and five percent of females think about sex while running (perhaps that's why they're so out of breath). And as if you needed anymore motivation to get out bed and go for an early morning run, twenty-five percent admit to going for a jog with the intent of flirting. Even more impressively than a third said they have managed to strike up a conversation with someone of the opposite sex while running.  

This trend has gotten so big in the UK that they've even given it a goofy nickname: flunning. (Get it? Neither did we. It's flirting and running.) Though given Americans' love for indolence and fast-food delicacies, we're skeptical flunning will catch on anytime soon.
