LONDON — Researchers have found that a liking for casual sex may land you in trouble as it can increase your risk of being sexually harassed.

The study, published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, also whowed that people who have been sexually harassed are more strongly inclined to have casual sex than others.

The results might give the impression that it is the victim’s fault for being harassed, however, the researchers said their findings were not intended to blame the victim.

“Absolutely not! We’re trying to understand the psychological mechanisms that underlie harassment,” said Mons Bendixen, Associate Professor at Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway.

The study included 1,326 heterosexual girls and boys with an average age of nearly 18 years. The psychologists only looked at non-physical forms of sexual harassment.

Sixty per cent of the girls and boys in the survey reported that they had been sexually harassed in the last year. And around 30 per cent of the girls and 45 per cent of the boys admitted that they had sexually harassed someone one or more times.

Couples with a good sex life are more likely to cheat. Imge for representation only

Having great sex life in a relationship has been considered one of the most important factors as that would stop either partner becoming unfaithful. But a new research has found that having a good sex life only is not enough for partners as it may make one’s partner more likely to stray.

Researchers at the University of Florida assessed how newly married couples reacted to other people and found those with active sex lives were more likely to want sex with others

The team documented their sex satisfaction then monitored their interactions with others.

The researchers also found men with a more-attractive wife were less likely to cheat than women with a more-attractive husband . The authors said this sex difference is “consistent with evidence that partner attractiveness to men than it is to women”.

“With the advent of social media, and thus the increased availability of and access to alternative partners, understanding how people avoid the temptation posed by alternative partners may be more relevant than ever to understanding relationships,” the authors said.

They found that participants who quickly stopped looking at an attractive person were less likely to have affairs during the course of the study. The difference in the length of time of the gaze between ‘cheaters’ and ‘faithful’ people was just fractions of a second.

A person who looked at an attractive person for just a few hundred milliseconds longer was 50 per cent more likely to cheat than someone who stopped looking at the attractive picture.

As well as avoiding looking longingly at others, researchers found that faithful people also ‘downgraded’ how attractive they viewed others.

The authors say that faithful people — when asked to evaluate how good looking other people were — gave lower scores than people who went on to cheat.

At a time when potential romantic partners on social media that could tempt someone to stray is high, the authors say their research is more relevant than ever further suggesting that people who really enjoy good sex are more likely to be unfaithful because they seek out sex with more partners.

Younger people were also more likely to cheat. And men who had previously had lots of short-term sexual partners were also more likely to have an affair, although the opposite was true of women.
