Almost half of Irish women daydream about having sex with other people while in the midst of passion with their partner, new research has revealed.
Just under half of women thought about another person while having sex with their partner compared to 42pc of men.
The study, conducted by Lovehoney, found that the most common people women fantasised about during sex were colleagues, while 26pc of women have actually done the deed with a work mate at some point in their lives.
The research also found that 30pc of women and 25pc of men actually carry out their fantasies with other people while in a relationship.
Meanwhile, the study also found that more than a third (42pc) of Irish women fantasise about having sex with their first love again, while 17pc of people admitted to sleeping with their first partner at least once since breaking up.
A Lovehoney spokesperson said: “Lots of people do reminisce fondly about former lovers – it is a perfectly harmless thing to do as long as you not intent on living out that fantasy.”
“Sexual experimentation is to be encouraged because couples who are happy in bed then to be happy in the rest of their lives.”
