Sex lies and internet dating


A full 15 per cent of men and nearly a third of women reported zero interest in sex at all.

One of the study’s authors, Dr Kaye Wellings, a social scientist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical medicine, speculated last week that one reason for this could be that we are taking our work, via laptops and i Pads, into the bedroom.

She explains that this was really a shorthand for saying how busy and stressed we have become.

“We work more, and we’ve lost the structured schedule to the day when there was a time for family, a time for relationships and a time for work.” The report also found that while, on the one hand, we have become more sexually adventurous and certainly more accepting of homosexuality, at the same time we have become more judgmental about infidelity.

All have their roots in the plethora of sex surveys that, since the middle of the 20th century, have opened up this most fundamental part of human behaviour – a behaviour that until then was largely shrouded (in the West at least) in taboo, myth and misinformation.

    ) Your ex knows that you guys could easily sneak off and have your little rendezvous anyway, so she’d probably just as well know about it. NO, you cannot go out with one of your ex-girlfriend’s friends! No matter what she says or how little she promises it will bother her. Because right now—whether she’s consciously aware that she’s doing it or not—she’s testing you and the definition of your newly defined friendship. She may seem breezy, but the second you go out with her friend, you are a marked man.
