Say My Name, B!@tch
50% of Gay and Bisexual Men Think About Someone Else During Sex
Sex, a shag, banging, doing it, getting intimate or making love…whatever you want to call it, when you are alone with a partner, there really should be only one person on your mind. But, according to a recent study by ManCentral.com, half of us admit to thinking about someone else during those intimate moments.
Over 3,000 members of the free gay dating website were asked if they ever thought about someone else during a sexual encounter, surprisingly, the results indicated an astonishing 50/50 split. Of those that admitted to a wandering mind, 25% thought about a neighbour, friend or aquaintance, 12% thought of a secret “fuck-buddy”, 8% imagined a celebrity whilst 5% conjured up the image of their favourite porn star.
The study also found that gay men are less likely to mind-cheat than bisexual and curious men. Whilst 45% of gay men said they had thought of someone other than their partner during sex, 59% of bisexual men and 61% of bi-curious men admitted to having an active imagination. Though the statistics indicate that bisexual and bi-curious men are more likely to have wandering minds, it may also suggest that they are fantasizing about men when they are alone with a woman.
Similarly, openly gay or bisexual were the least likely (46%) to use their imagination during those special moments with their partner, compared to 59% of closet men.
A spokesman for ManCentral said; “Whether inside or outside of a relationship, the vast majority of people will hold a sexual fantasy to some degree. In the case of this study, the thought of a celebrity or porn star is a fantasy which will ultimately remain just that, thus the excitement or thrill is gained from an unobtainable lust which is essentially harmless to any relationship.”
“Though a neighbour, friend or colleague may present a more probable threat to a relationship than a celebrity or porn star, the pleasure of the fantasy is once again achieved through the sense of forbidden or unachievable indulgence.”
Fortunately, “Say my name” is up there with “Was it good for you?” in the cringe-worthy sex sayings league, but if your thoughts do turn to someone other than your partner, just make sure you say the right name.
