It’s news that many women may have suspected, while reaching wearily for the mouthwash – but now science has proved it.

Women are twice as likely to go down on their partners as men, according to a study in the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality.

But frankly, not many people seem to be doing it at all, according to a survey of 900 undergrads – and fewer still enjoy it.

About 26% of women performed oral on their partners – compared with a measly 10% of men.

And just 28% of women claimed to actually enjoy the act – while 52% of men claimed, mysteriously, to enjoy it (despite the fact they’re not really doing it).
