It said more people in Belfast were prepared to have outdoor sex than anywhere else – but kissing was the city’s preferred PDA.

People in Southampton reveal their sentimental side with hugs being their preferred PDA, whilst those in Leeds favour holding hands.

The findings also show that men are more up for PDAs than women, with more men admitting to having sex and snogging in public, compared to women.
