For some, a suggestive text is pushing the limit. For others, flirting is harmless unless it’s physical. When it comes to cheating, where do you draw the line? And, perhaps more importantly, is your missus on the same page?
If a survey by BBC Radio 5 Live is anything to go by, men and women share seriously different views when it comes to cheating ethics.
The survey, which quizzed more than 2,000 British adults, revealed that only 51 per cent of men believe kissing someone else was cheating, compared to a sizeable 73 per cent of women.
And while half of the blokes surveyed said they didn’t see any problem with cybersex, 75 per cent of women felt it counts as infidelity.
Thankfully, there was one area both men and women agreed: 91 per cent considered having sex with another person as cheating. The other nine per cent should probably have a long, hard look at their life choices (or at least suggest an open relationship).
On the whole, half of Brits surveyed said they were happy with their sex life, with 45 per cent admitting that the biggest barrier to stress was sex (though 41 per cent did say having different political views would put them off).
And while as a nation we struggle to open up about sex, 58 per cent of those quizzed said they feel confident about their performance between the sheets. We’re only speculating here, but it sounds like those guys regularly hit the gym…
