A survey by Illicit Encounters – an online dating site for married people – found that 56% of women experienced ‘the best sex of their lives’ in a relationship prior to the one they are currently in. In other words, sex with their ex was better.
Men seemed happier with their current relationships, claiming the the best sex of their lived was overwhelmingly within the relationship they are currently in.
So why do so many women lust over those days with their former lovers? And is it a big deal?
First the why… It seems women are much more likely to leave a great lover, in favour of a more responsible partner. They will trade in the great sex for stability… and while they miss the great sex, it is not the most important component of the relationship. Men, on the other hand, tend to stay with someone who is an amazing sexual partner.
And is this a big deal? Does it matter than women are fantasizing about their past partner? A resounding NO! For the exact same reason… women can be nostalgic about the better sex they used to have, but they will stay with the lover who is the better person… not the better sexual partner.
So… if your girl accidentally calls out her ex’s name during sex… stay cool.
