Bonkbuster programmes such as Bridgerton and Normal People are now the number one way for getting us in the mood for sex.

The vast majority of women (85%) and a similar number of men (82%) have had sex either during or straight after seeing a steamy show or an explicit movie like 50 Shades of Grey and Basic Instinct.

After that, what puts men and women in the mood include clean bedsheets, flattering lighting, white wine and beer, scented candles and victory for their sports teams.

The results are from a new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters, the UK’s leading affairs site.

In second place on the female list was flirty chat on WhatsApp or text and in third place was the start of a holiday and the need to bond with a partner when you go away together.

Second place on the male list went to being sent a naked or topless selfie by a lover.

Third place was sexy talk on WhatsApp or text.

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert with IllicitEncounters, said: “We all know the phrase Netflix and chill for a very good reason – nothing gets us in the mood for sex more than a good sex scene in front of the TV.

“Lots of couples cannot wait to get to the bedroom and like to make love while they are watching the sexiest shows together.”

Fourth place on the male list was booze, with 72% of men saying they were more likely to want sex when they had had a few pints.

Fifth place went to the prospect of first time sex with a new partner.

The survey found that 84% of women but far fewer men (58%) said their sex drive varied greatly and their desire for passion often needed an outside stimulant like a erotic movie.

More than half of women (54%) said feeling comfortable in their environment was important for getting them in the mood, compared to just 34% of men.

Sex with a new partner was a big turn-on for both sexes.

Booze is an aphrodisiac for both sexes but beer gets men in the mood while women say white wine or rose is more likely to make them feel passionate.
