Here's how long it takes couples to feel comfortable walking around naked in front of one another

Did you let it all hang out from day one?

Or are you five years married and still holding in farts in front of your other half?

We all play the best versions of ourselves in front of a new boyfriend or girlfriend but we'd have thought that the filter comes off pretty quickly after you start going out with someone new.

Not the case, however.

A new survey shows that we all take quite a while to be truly comfortable with a new partner in the bedroom - especially for ladies.

Women take four and a half months on average to walk around the bedroom naked in front of their partner, the survey of 1,009 people reveals.

Men are a little more confident, taking just over three months to feel comfortable doing that.

Sleeping naked with a new partner comes a little easier for both sexes - just under four months for women versus less than three months for men.

Women will put off farting in bed until eight and a half months in. Men, on the other hand, wait just over five months.

There's a big difference in how long it takes someone to wear a retainer in bed with a new other half - almost nine months for women but just three and a half months for men.

Meanwhile women tend to wait over five months before showering with a partner while men wait less than four months.

The research was conducted by US company Mattress Advisor using 1,009 people in relationships who don't live with their other half.
