If you’re in a relationship, there’s a good chance your partner secretly wants to spice things up in the bedroom, it’s been revealed.
A new study looking into the details of 2,000 Americans’ sex lives found that one in four Americans in a relationship (27 percent) has a secret sex act in mind that they want to try- but haven’t yet asked their partner.
The survey, which was commissioned by sex toy brand EdenFantasys, revealed quite a bit of steamy data about what Americans desire and get up to between the sheets-
as many as 40 percent of Americans claim themselves to be a kinky person.
In fact, over a third (36 percent) of Americans say they have a specific kink or fetish.
Using sex toys is the most popular sexual act, with nearly one in two Americans (49 percent) open to this. 34 percent said they want to experiment more with sex toys with their current partner.
Role-playing is another popular bedroom activity, with 29 percent saying they’re interested in it, and one in four (24 percent) reporting they want to give it a try with their current partner.
But while many Americans certainly have kinky sexual interests, that doesn’t necessarily mean they get to indulge them all the time. One in two respondents (51 percent) who reported they had a fetish or specific sexual interest said it takes them at least a month or longer to even bring it up with their partner.
Some are not as shy, however, with 14 percent of those with a kinky sexual interest saying they’ll bring it up after only one night with a new partner.
The study also revealed that Americans are definitely more adventurous sexually than not, with three out of four (76 percent) Americans saying they’re definitely down to broaden their horizons and try new sexual acts.
In fact, 37 percent of Americans reported that they have encountered a partner with a kinky sexual interest and actually gave it a try.
A spokesperson for EdenFantasys said: “Having an open mind sexually is a great way to keep happiness in a relationship. At EdenFantasys, we pride ourselves in helping others find the kink that's right for them. We suggest starting with sex toys as they are safe, versatile and very fun.”
Also in the study, 29 percent of Americans said they wanted to try anal sex with their current partner, and 24 percent want to get more into role-playing in the bedroom.
Plenty of Americans also want to try some kinkier stuff with their partner like bondage and S&M, with 22 percent and 8 percent reporting interest, respectively.
As far as new year goals are concerned, Americans are hopeful they can delve into some new territory in 2018. 30 percent reported they want to experiment more with sex toys, 16 percent want to try anal sex, and one in ten Americans (13 percent) hope to take part in a threesome.
“We, Americans, are going through transformative times. Testing our norms and our sexuality once again to find out how to live our lives even fuller and happier than ever,” said a spokesperson for EdenFantasys. “EdenFantasys is proud to be a part of this generational challenge that we call ‘The New Intimacy’.”
