World Cup fever turning bedroom cold

WOULD some men prefer to sit down in front of the television and watch sport than do anything else?

Well here is a survey to say that's exactly right.

The survey has revealed that the current World Cup Soccer tournament is starting to have an impact on the marital bedroom.

The survey of more than 15,000 married men revealed that 77% of them would rather watch sweaty soccer players than be intimate with their wives or affair partners.

The survey revealed on AshleyMadison.com asked them if they'd rather watch the final FIFA 2014 World Cup game than have sex.

Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman said more scandalous stats from the survey included that 69% had pre-prepared excuses for their wives or affair partners.

The top excuses avoiding sex included: "I might miss a goal" (53%), "I'm hung-over" (40%) or "I'm too tired" (33%).

While husbands may be shunning intimacy another World Cup survey has revealed that women have also been caught up in World Cup fever.

Many have admitted to fantasizing about having an affair with a soccer player and ranking high on their hit list is Aussie star Tim Cahill.

Other stars that got a mention included: Gerard Pique, Glen Johnson, Mats Hummels and Christiano Ronaldo.
