A NEW survey gives a very intimate look into our sex lives - and apparently, there are many simple things we can do to ruin the mood.

In an attempt to find out more about modern relationships, Forktip questioned 5000 adults about their sex life, with male and female participants having the opportunity to share their bedroom frustrations.

Unsurprisingly, premature ejaculation and small penis size were big turn offs for women.

But the study also revealed that the mood could also be wrecked by different sex positions and the sounds your partner makes.

According to the women surveyed, making weird noises and changing positions too frequently is a big no-no.

Male participants were more fixated on the physical aspects of their sexual partners.

The poll showed that many were put off by a lack of curves in the boobs and bum departments.

Many also admitted that getting jiggy with someone who is "too loose" can ruin their enjoyment.

Just like the ladies' results, the men noted that too much noise was a turn off.

These weren't the only interesting findings brought to light by the research.
