Watching TV and the weather among excuses used by Bristol men to avoid sex
Bristol men are coming up with inventive excuses for not having sex, according to a survey.
Watching television, blaming the weather and worrying about cats and dogs watching are among the reasons used by men for abstaining from sex, the research revealed.
The Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor found that 69 per cent of Bristol men have told their partner they are too tired for sex, 52 per cent that they are simply not in the mood and 27 per cent have blamed a headache.
But the service said that men may be thinking up creative excuses, including playing computer games and being too full after a heavy meal, because they are suffering impotence

A quarter of men who responded to the survey nationally said they had experienced problems in the bedroom with six per cent of those in Bristol saying they never get an erection any more. The research found that just 16 per cent of women in the city were aware that their partners were affected by impotence.
One in ten men in Bristol said that they thought being unable to get an erection immediately after starting sexual activity signified a problem. More than half (56 per cent) said that anything between one and five minutes could be a sign of erectile dysfunction.
A fifth of people surveyed did not realise that impotence can affect men of any age, believing that 56 to 65 was the most likely time of life to suffer with the problem.
Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor, Dr Tom Brett, said: "Erectile dysfunction can affect any man at any stage in his life but it doesn't have to mean the end of intimacy.
"Despite remaining a taboo among men, it's more common than people realise, and can be brought on by many different circumstances.
"It's important that men feel comfortable talking to a medical professional about their ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Not only is there a wealth of effective treatments available, but erectile dysfunction can be symptomatic of a more serious undiagnosed underlying health problem, such as diabetes or heart disease, so it's worth getting it checked out."
