Woman saws off hand for compo

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE 10 big­gest sex lies told by both men and women have been re­vealed.

Women’s most pop­u­lar lie is to re­duce the real num­ber of men they have slept with.

More than half of women (52 per cent) said they had cut the real fig­ure of their past lovers when talk­ing about pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships with a new lover or friends.

Men’s most pop­u­lar lie was to deny ever cheat­ing on a pre­vi­ous part­ner.

Four out of 10 men (44 per cent) said they hid­den pre­vi­ous in­fi­delity be­cause they were wor­ried it would put off a new lover.

The re­sults are in a new sur­vey of 2,000 men and women, split evenly be­tween the sexes, by Il­lic­itEn­coun­ters. com, the UK’s lead­ing dat­ing site for mar­ried peo­ple.

The sec­ond big­gest fe­male sex lie was to fake an or­gasm – 46 per cent of women have done this.

In third place was say­ing ‘I love you’ when they don’t re­ally mean it fol­lowed by ly­ing to friends about how much sex they’re hav­ing with a new part­ner.

The sec­ond big­gest male sex lie was deny­ing they ever watch porn, cho­sen by 42 per cent of male re­spon­dents, and third was say­ing they rarely mas­tur­bate (36 per cent).

In fourth place was telling a white lie about a woman look­ing great then about the num­ber of past lovers – but un­like women, 28 per cent of men are likely to in­crease rather than de­crease their to­tal.

Il­lic­itEn­coun­ters.com spokesman Chris­tian Grant said: “Both sexes like to tell sex lies but it is in­ter­est­ing to dis­cover just how dif­fer­ent those lies are.” A WOMAN has been ac­cused of de­lib­er­ately cut­ting off her hand with a CIR­CU­LAR SAW for an in­sur­ance claim.

The 21-year-old and a rel­a­tive are still in cus­tody and face up to eight years in jail if con­victed.

The woman, who re­cently took out in­jury in­sur­ance, stood to gain £340,000 in com­pen­sa­tion plus monthly pay­ments of £2,600 from the pol­icy.

Four mem­bers of the fam­ily, who said she had in­jured her­self while saw­ing branches, were held then re­leased.

Po­lice say the group de­lib­er­ately cut the woman’s hand above the wrist at their home in Ljubl­jana, Slove­nia.

The group left the sev­ered hand be­hind rather than bring it to hos­pi­tal – to make the dis­abil­ity per­ma­nent – but medics re­cov­ered it in time to sew it back on.
