Preparing for sex is serious business, according to a new survey on women's habits.

A new survey reveals that the average woman spends a quarter of her day, or six hours, preparing for fun in the sack with a new lover.

The survey revealed that 33 percent of women book facials on the big day to make sure they have an afterglow, 32 percent spray tan and 76 percent go to the salon to professionally style their hair.

The findings also reveal that 63 percent of women buy new lingerie and 37 percent say they will never wear underwear they've worn with previous partner.

Researchers also found that one in five women invest in a set of new bed sheets to welcome their new lover.

Hair removal is also a must. The study, which involved 1,000 women, revealed that 54 percent prepare for their big night by going to the waxing salon.

The survey also revealed that an overwhelming percentage of women report trying to prevent bloating by avoiding carb-heavy dinners on their big night.

"Moving the relationship up a gear is a significant step for many women," said Emily Bendell, founder of lingerie brand Bluebella, according to the Daily Mail. Bluebella commissioned the latest study.

"They want the night to be perfect - for themselves and their partner. That means looking and feeling their absolute best so this ritual list makes complete sense," she explained.

"Of course most men probably wouldn't notice things like a fresh pedicure - but these kind of rituals make a woman feel her most confident self - and confidence is the sexiest accessory of all," Bendell said.

"Lingerie especially plays a huge role for women in a couple's first time. If your wrapping paper is enticing, it makes the gift within even more so!" she concluded.
