NEARLY HALF OF WOMEN like to keep their clothes on during sex, according to a new survey. 48% of females prefer to wear at least one item of clothing, choosing not to bare all.

Women say it’s a body confidence issue but men don’t agree. When the men were asked if they’d like their partners to wear an item of clothing in bed only 36% of them said “yes”.

And while men would prefer their ladies to wear a negligees, the w0men would prefer to wear a bra. The survey also shows that 61% of women prefer to have sex with the lights off while men prefer to keep the lights on.

Andy Barr, marketing director at MyCelebrityFashion.co.uk, said: ”This research has really unveiled how large a part clothes play when it comes to female body confidence.

”The fact that such a large proportion of women claim to feel sexier with an item kept on suggests that, whilst body confidence might be low, clothes can really improve a woman’s self-image.”
