As Britons tighten their belts to cope with the credit crunch, a new poll showed their favourite leisure activity is whipping off their pants for a quick roll in the hay.

According to the YouGov survey conducted over the Internet, 37 per cent of Britons rank having sex at the top of their list of freetime activities.

That was more than the next three highest options combined - gossiping with friends (18 per cent), window shopping (9 per cent) and going to a museum (6 per cent).

"During the credit crunch our famed British upper lip might not be as stiff as before but other parts still are," said Lisa Power, head of policy at the Terrence Higgins Trust, the British sexual health charity that commissioned the poll.

According to the poll, however, women preferred gossiping with friends, while men tended to rank sex as number one.

It also showed that passion levels may be tied to the cold weather, with 43 per cent of Scots rating sex as their favourite freetime activity, compared to 35 per cent of Londoners.

The YouGov survey interviewed 2,144 people over the internet between November 21 and 23.
