Yes, yes, we know: another Monday morning. But Estate Agent Today always tries to cheer you up as a new week starts.

So how about this to get your mind on the, er, job.

A new survey of 3,000 consenting adults has revealed that estate agents have more sex than anyone else. Hooray!

A poll by Onjoy – no, we’d never heard of them either, but Google research tells us they supply lingerie and other requisites – ¬ says that agents have sex four times a week, which is apparently double the national average.

Our theory is that it’s like smoking or drinking in reverse. You claim to halve those amounts, whilst at least doubling what you do between the sheets. Not, obviously, that we would ever accuse estate agents of exaggerating their particulars, as this would contravene the Property Misdescriptions Act.

However, to continue. After estate agents come cabin crews, who have sex three times a week, and then lawyers, secretaries and call centre workers.

The worst performers in the sack are lorry drivers, followed by librarians, nurses (so much for ‘Casualty’), teachers and those who work in customer services. The survey doesn’t actually mention nuns and monks, but never mind. We’re just trying to preserve its credibility.

Nearly a third of those polled also admitted to sleeping with a colleague, with 28% getting frisky on work premises. Which kind of suggests that all those rumours about Foxtons might be true: still, what a great place to work.

Top jobs for sex (apparently):

1. Estate agent

2. Cabin crew

3. Lawyer

4. Secretary

5. Call centre worker

Worst jobs for sex (so we’re told):

1. Lorry driver

2. Customer service rep

3. Nurse

4. Teacher

5. Librarian

    If you are interested in the situation regarding Monks and Nuns, then I would recommend the following book: Happiness, by Abbot Christopher Jamison of Worth Abbey, Sussex, published 2008.

    Things have really become that bad, that estate agents need to rely on news like this to inspire them. Gone are the days of actually making a sale. SAD

    Always ahead of the game - please refer to "Something for the Christmas Weekend" in the archive. Estate agents (whilst still in the first flush of youth) have always measured up in the bedroom.

    I think I would have to agree with Nick on the relationship thing! Lets hope the New year will mean we can live up to the survey!

    Sex four times a week for estate agents - and no mention of it needing to involve two people either!
