A survey involving 2,000 Brits has determined that men from Birmingham are the 'worst lovers' in the UK.
Look, don't shoot the messenger, OK?
The findings are based on a survey conducted by Illicitencounters.com, a dating site for married couples, which asked 2,000 participants where their worst lovers were from.
Obviously everyone has their own likes and dislikes when it comes to the bedroom, but men from Birmingham were unfortunately found to be generally unimpressive, with just four percent of the participants rating them as being good between the sheets.
Things apparently aren't much better when it comes to men from Newcastle and Bristol as the cities were ranked joint second in the list of poor performers. At least the Geordies have their winning accent to fall back on, though.
When it comes to women, it was those from Cardiff who failed to impress with their moves as again just four percent of men said the sex was good. Second on the loser list were women from Liverpool.
On the other end of the scale were both men and women from London, where big city experience appears to have paid off as 20 percent of women and 19 percent of men were blown away by their saucy encounters.
Commenting on the findings, Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert with IllicitEncounters.com, said: “Men from Birmingham and ladies from Cardiff sadly seem to lack imagination in the bedroom. But that cannot be said of London – another good reason for visiting the capital.”
No one likes to think they're a poor performer when it comes to the bedroom, but any curious men from Birmingham and women from Cardiff might consider heading down to London to see if there's anything in particular they're missing out on.
The survey comes following other research by Illicit Encounters which discovered some of the most common things people say to each other after sex, with the most popular comment from men after finishing being 'wow!', while second is 'when can we do that again?'.
It's unclear whether there's any correlation between the post-sex comments and the places their partners were from, but it's worth noting that people don't always make an effort to hide their disappointment, as the third most common comment from men was 'I've got to go'.
Women were similar in most often offering a positive 'you're amazing' after sex, but disappointment starts to become evident in the second most popular 'don't go to sleep'.
Third on the list was 'give me a cuddle' - though if it was a man from Birmingham, there might also be a chance they could hit them with an 'I've got to go' of their own.
