Grannies favourite Emmerdale beat all the prime-time soaps hollow with the most incidences of sex-related incidents over a two week period.
Inside Soap magazine scrutinised the Brit soaps, plus Home and Away and Neighbours, over a two week period, feverishly noting down every snog, adjusted blouse or hastily zipped fly. The magazine discovered that Emmerdale had a steamy 1.8 sexy moments every half hour, placing it well in the lead.
Teen-drama Hollyoaks came second with 1.6, Neighbours1.2, Corrie and EastEnders both had an average of one each, and Home and Away limped in with only 0.2.
Steven Murphy, editor of Inside Soap magazine, said: "The soaps are a dramatic place to live, as we all know, but while the level of incidents of sex, bad language and violence may seem to be high, we discovered what is actually seen or heard on screen is comparatively tame compared to many other TV dramas, let alone what goes on in real life."
