Mattress makers have given sales figures a bounce - after inventing a specially-designed bed to help randy lovers.
The love mattress - launched by Italian makers Sogniflex - includes special straps and handles for couples to hang onto when passions are rising high.
Further down the bed - which costs 1,200 GBP - is a carefully designed trench where men can place their knees for extra traction and grip.
Inventors have included specially strong springs in the mattress's make up - so even the laziest lovers can put some extra snap into their performance.
Company boss Paolo Tonelli, from Noventa Padovana, northern Italy, explained: "There are studies which show that about 70 per cent of men and women say they are unsatisfied with their love making or have some kind of performance problem.
"I wanted to invent something that could really help them, because most beds are designed for sleeping, not for making love.
"I expect to have many, many satisfied customers," he added.
