The changes are partly down to a lack of opportunity, suggested the researchers behind the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles , a once-a-decade snapshot published in the Lancet journal that questioned 15, people. Demographic change has meant that fewer people are cohabiting with their partners. Lack of interest in sex was one of the most commonly reported problems for both men and women, affecting 15 per cent of men, with women twice as likely as men to say this had been an issue in the last year.

Pop-culture acolytes proclaimed the "Year of the Booty," which heralded a deluge of think pieces about the portrayal of butt sex on mainstream television shows like The Mindy Project and articles assessing the erotic potential of the anus.
