More men fear being flop in bed.

Byline: By LYNN JOLLY

SEX means more to Irish men than their female partners, a survey revealed yesterday.

A poll of 1,000 adults found 51 per cent of men and 43 per cent of women rated sex as "important".

The survey probing the impact of erectile dysfunction on love lives found 17 per cent of males said their relationships would break up if they flopped between the sheets.

But only seven per cent of women said impotence would ruin their romances.

It is believed 215,000 men and women have had their love lives affected by erectile dysfunction.

And separate research revealed one in 10 Irishmen over 21, around 100,000, will suffer impotence at some point.

Sex therapist Mary O'Connor said: "The research proves once again that while all sexual problems affect both partners, in erectile dysfunction the male suffers significantly from performance anxiety."
