What If Your Partner Pulled An Anthony Weiner?
Who hasn't chatted with girlfriends over brunch about what you would do if your partner asked you to swing with another couple… or what you would do if you found scandalous text messages on their phone? Now, you can find out how most people would react in various sexual and relationship circumstances, thanks to the results a new survey from Good in Bed, Men's Health, and Women's Health. Turns out, a full 30 percent of people would consider inviting another couple into the bedroom—and 33 percent would ignore their partner's outside sexting (compared to the 20 percent of people who would dump their partner if that happened to them).
The survey was administered to a nationwide sample of 5,000 adults, including single and married men and women between the ages of 18 and 70. It was funded by Pure Romance and was conducted in collaboration with Kristen Mark, PhD, an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky and Survey Director for Good in Bed. Each question gave participants a specific sex and relationship scenario and then asked them, "What would you do?"
"We frequently hear or read about the sexcapades of celebrities, politicians, and newsmakers,” says Ian Kerner, PhD, founder of Good in Bed. “With this survey, we wanted to get a sense of how the average person would respond when faced with their own fun, adventurous, or sometimes anxiety-provoking relationship situations.”
