You’ve had sex with someone on the first date. Do you feel guilty? Do you feel you’ve done something you shouldn’t have? Or do you rush to tell your friends what a great time you had?
Guys might be quick to brag, but according to a new survey commissioned by Bayer Healthcare, women are less reluctant to spill all about their sexual escapades.
It revealed that 11 per cent of women have slept with someone they’ve only been on one date with, while 28 per cent had indulged in sexual activity by the second or third date.
It’s just that they don’t always admit this to their friends, perhaps because first date sex is still seen as slightly taboo for ladies.
The survey showed that 48 per cent of women feel embarrassed talking about what they have been up to in the bedroom, with 70 per cent admitting to lying about their sex life to friends.
Psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos said: “What is interesting about these results is that women will be intimate but they won’t talk about the intricacies of intimacy.
“I think it’s a paradox and one of the theories is that it could, to some extent, be about the ownership of intimacy,” she remarked.
