If they can only get one of four things for Valentine's Day -- sex, dinner, lingerie or flowers -- the majority of Canadians are going to opt for sex, a new poll says.

Of those surveyed, 61% said they would prefer to have sex over receiving a gift.

When it comes to buying gifts, 89% said they plan to spend the same or less on their lovers this year with cards (28%), chocolate and candy (27%), and flowers (18%) unsurprisingly topping the list.

While a similar survey in the U.S. found 33% of Americans intend to spend more than $100 on a gift, just 7% of Canadians are willing to shell out that kind of dough.

The online survey of 1,516 randomly selected Canadians who are Angus Reid Forum panellists was conducted Jan. 24 and 25 on behalf of the company RetailMeNot. It has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
