SEX FORUM Why sex with your ex is simply the best
ONE in six people have slept with their ex thanks to social media, a study found.
If your missus is friends with a former flame on Facebook then beware, because 15 per cent of us have done the dirty after reconnecting with them online.
And a further 21% have thought about it.
But despite 64% of people admitting to using the internet to search for pictures of their “first love”, only a quarter actually get back in touch.
The survey was carried out by online affair website IllicitEncounters.com, which quizzed 1,000 adults on their cheating habits.
Website spokesman Christian Grant said: “Anyone’s first love will have a profound effect on their lives.
“With so many of us on social media, it is far easier to secretly track how they are getting on and it is not surprising that most people have done this.
“This survey shows clearly that women are far keener than men to talk about their experiences with previous lovers.
“I think this is because they want to make sure they don’t repeat previous mistakes and are generally happier talking about their feelings.
“Men are much more likely to contact a former lover directly. They also reminisce more fondly about their ex-lovers than women.
“I think we can safely say that these two findings are connected – men are much keener on having sex again with their first love than women, who are more prepared to move on with their lives.”
The survey also found that less than half of people (41%) said they enjoyed the best sex of their lives with their first love.
Midweek Sport model Laura Cooke, 22, from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, said: “I’ve never cheated on anyone with an ex, but they are definitely an easy shag when I’m single.
“I always end up having sex with the exes I contact online – it must be because of my high sex drive when I’m single.”
