Money worries 'affect sex drive'

Press Association

Friday March 24, 2006

An estimated 2 million people have lost their sex drive as a result of worrying about money, a survey showed today.

One in five people who said financial problems had affected their relationship said the issue had hit their sex life, according to insurance giant AXA.

Women are twice as likely to suffer from the problem as men, accounting for two-thirds of people who say money has ruined their sex life.

Married or cohabiting couples are also more likely to find that financial problems affect their libido, with more than half of the people who say this has happened currently living with their partner, while 23% are widowed or divorced and 22% are single.

A further 37% of people said their money problems had caused them to spend less quality time with their partner, while 50% said they had more arguments and a shorter temper when they were stressed about their finances. Some 26% said they spent less time with their children as a result of their problems.

Around two-thirds of people said they always avoided discussing their finances with their partner, family or friends because it caused them anxiety.

"Our study has revealed that this sensitive problem is quite widespread and a person with a financial problem is likely to lean on his or her partner for support and advice," said Darrin Nightingale, of AXA.

"When the original money problem breeds a second, more personal, problem with their relationship, it can make things much harder to deal with."
