Love Island putting viewers off sex as half of Brits ditch bedtime bonking

Judging by a new survey by Plenty of Fish, Brits prefer to watch people get hot and heavy on Love Island rather than impress their partner with their bedroom moves.

The series, which is drawing to an end on July 29, takes precedence over romantic endeavours such as cuddling (44%) and going on a first date (41%). 

The study of Plenty of Fish members also found that a fifth (22%) of super-fans have even watched the show during a date.

However, the UK’s most popular reality show won’t get you too far in the dating world, as more than four in five singles think Love Island is a terrible topic of conversation for a date, and more than one in 10 are turned off if a potential is a fan of the show.

And it appears as though it’s not just Amy Hart and Anna Vakili who have been left broken-hearted this summer, as more than a fifth (22%) of respondents claim to be less trusting of romantic partners after watching the show.

Besides the make ups and break ups, Love Island lingo has also stormed the dating world, with “it is what it is” (36%) “f**** flutter” (29%) and “dead ting” identified as the top catchphrases from 2019’s series.

Fans have also branded the kissing on this season’s shows as too loud, with many describing the uncomfortable snogs as cringeworthy (57%), unnecessary (46%), and even nauseating (23%).

And despite a rocky road to love, Amber Gill (29%) is this series’ most fancied Islander for the girls, while Tommy Fury (40%) beat other contestants to be crowned the hottest male.


With this year’s seasons drawing to a close next week, talk has turned to which couple is worthy of taking the top spot.

Fans originally backed Ovie and Amber to win the show, however the pair are now coupled with other partners.

One wrote: “All I want is for Amber to be happy. This girl deserves the world. Always stayed true to herself whether we liked it or not. Casa Amor and heartache really made her grow. Found someone else – surely she is the prime example of the purpose of the show? My winner.”

However, one viewer said: “As much as I love Amber and Ovie, I really don’t think either of their couples should win. Honestly Tommy and Molly have gone in and actually come out of it with what you’re supposed to come out of it with. Love. A relationship. Oh yeah and LOVE. My winners all the way.”

And someone else said: “Who else thinks that Ovie should win the 50k but share it with Amber instead of India. The real winners of Love Island 2019.”

Love Island continues on ITV2 on 9pm.
