It seems that Yorkshire has been getting naughty over the last year! Some parts more than others! Singles and couples in the area have been getting down and dirty during the pandemic and some more than others. One village in North Yorkshire was especially busy it seems!
Catterick Garrison near Richmond was named as Yorkshire’s horniest place according to Lovehoney’s 2021 UK Sex Map, which showed that the area spent more on sex toys and sex aids than in any other part of God’s Own Country. The place ranked 19th out of 1,551 UK towns and cities, not surprising being home to the largest military garrison in the world.
A Lovehoney spokeswoman said: “We have seen a huge surge in activity in North Yorkshire as singles and couples look to escape the pressures of lockdown by experimenting more sexually.
“All our data shows that couples with great sex lives enjoy higher overall levels of happiness.”
Other parts of Yorkshire that seemed to get stuck into the purchase of sex aids and toys during the downtime were Brough in East Yorkshire that came in at 256th and Yorkshire’s cities were also up there. Surprisingly York coming in at 385th place beat out the other cities Hull and Leeds.
On the other end of the scale were Ilkley, Batley, Dewsbury and Settle which were some of the areas that were ranked in the last place. Looks likes the rest of Yorkshire has some work to do, to compete with the likes of Catterick.
