Dim the lights, light the candles and crank up the Barry White.

A new, very important study from Britain has found the day people most like to have sex. What is it? Well, let's just say it’s like the old Chicago song reminds us: “Saturday in the pork.”

Yup, 42% say they'd like to go for a roll in the sheets on Saturday -- or, more appropriately, Satur-lay.

Sunday was next, at 26%, proving that folks on that side of the pond simply cannot for the weekend.

The research also found respondents were horniest at 5:35 p.m. on Saturday, which flies in the face of a previous study that claimed men and women preferred different times for doing the nasty.

The survey of 1,000 married people was conducted by IllicitEncounters.com.

Here are the most popular days for sex:

  • Saturday - 42%
  • Sunday - 26%
  • Friday - 22%
  • Wednesday - 4%
  • Thursday - 3%
  • Tuesday - 2%
  • Monday - 1%

Poor Monday, huh? At a lowly 1%, it's the acne-covered, pockmark-filled dweeb by the punch bowl at the spring dance of days. And it's ironic that Wednesday only mustered 4% of the vote. It kind of makes you doubt that whole "hump" day nonsense, huh?
