Lost survey lifts covers on sexy post-war BritainBreaking News
Most women complained that their husbands were terrible in bed. These were the findings of the 1949 Mass Observation Project, Britain's first sex survey, which asked thousands of men and women nationwide at random about their sexual tastes, on condition of anonymity.
Mass Observation worked closely with the fledgling Marriage Guidance Council, formed in 1947, but the results were considered so outrageous that they were not made public, and the survey was buried in an archive at Sussex University.
A BBC4 documentary, Little Kinsey, to be shown on Oct 5, reveals the findings. The programme is so named because the survey was conducted a year after the Kinsey Report in America.
