Marital sex life lacking? Have a cuppa,

Despite recent increases in the price of tea and the surge of coffee shops, the 'cuppa' is proving to be as popular as ever with bookings in Britain's discerning tea rooms being made weeks in advance.

One would think it wouldn't be possible for British people to come up with yet another excuse to drink tea. And one would be wrong.

Earl Grey is now slowly making its grand entry into British bedrooms.

Leading marital therapist Andrew G Marshall explained in The Independent this week how tea can effectively be used to bring the spark back into boring marital sex.

Here's what he told the Independent:

"If you stop in the middle of love-making to have tea and talk to each other, it shows how desire comes and goes – that sex isn't just a race to the end. It allows you time to be intimate with each other. Sex which used to last 15 minutes suddenly lasts an hour and a half. Sex doesn't have to involve going out of your comfort zone – although challenging yourself is good."

Let me get this straight.

Sex, which used to last 15 minutes, now lasts an hour and a half, but includes 75 minutes of tea-drinking (and possibly even a cucumber sandwich.)

The plus side is that you don’t even need to get out of your comfort zone.

Heck, you can probably even talk your spouse out of the sex part altogether and just have yourselves a bloody marvelous high tea.
