Something might be missing from the average wedding night: The majority of couples don’t have sex on the night of their nuptials, according to a survey by lingerie brand Bluebella.

In the survey of over 1,000 couples, 52 percent reported they didn’t have sex on their wedding night.

Why the wait?

Women said they were too tired, waiting for the perfect moment, too drunk, or traveling for their honeymoon.And men’s top reasons were they were too drunk, or wanted to keep partying with their friends.

The couples finally did get some action later, though. One-third of them had sex the morning after the wedding, while 1 in 10 held out until 48 hours later. (Try the 45 Best Sex Positions to expand your own pleasure playbook.)
But when they did have sex, it was worth the wait: 84 percent said that when they finally did have sex, it lived up to all their expectations.
