Dirty Old Town: Dublin leads the way in Irish sex survey
Cheating, one-night stands and a bit of S&M; Dublin is the leader in a number of sex stats released today, but Munster folk are the most promiscuous.
Thanks to the good people at Durex, who know a thing or two about this sort of thing, we have leanred a lot (maybe too much) about the sex habits of us Irish folk. Carried in the Irish Daily Star today, the survey gives a province by province (and Dublin) breakdown of all the things we get up to between the sheets.
Cork may have just got Monopoly but Dublin residents are playing much more exciting games if this survey is to be believed. The capital leads the way in a number of catagories, though these probably won’t be published in any tourism guides.
Thirty per cent of Dubs have cheated on their spouse, a fairly high figure. Another 30 per cent said they would, if they knew their other half wouldn’t find out. And one in 10 admitted to getting down to business with someone less than an hour after meeting them.
50 Shades of Grey is also influencing the Dubs as one in five like to be blindfolded during sex , 16 per cent like handcuffs and 28 per cent have engaged in phone sex.
But fear not the rest of Ireland, you all have your own specialities. Munster citizens have the most partners, with 10 per cent having had between 11 and 20 partners and Munster ladies are the most likely in Ireland to have had a ‘vajazzle’. A proud moment there for the South-West.
They are getting busy in Ulster and Connacht, with 45 per cent of folk there having sex twice a week, meaning those provinces cheat less, while Leinster leads the way in sending pictures of themselves in the nip to someone, with 18 per cent admitting to doing it.
So, now you have read that, get out there and and keep those stats up.
