IT'S official – if you want a serious relationship, you need to have sex as soon as possible.
A study revealed more than a third of men found love after sleeping with their partner on the first date.
According to the study, lots of couples end up in bed the first night they meet – 58 per cent of men have done it and 56 per cent of women.
And it has led to a proper relationship for 36 per cent of women and 34 per cent of men.
It does, however, find that women are slightly more wary than men of partners who want to jump into bed straight away.
WOMEN MORE CAUTIOUS THAN MEN
One in six women (17 per cent) said they would think less of someone if they had sex on the first night, compared to 11 per cent of men.
The results are revealed in a study of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people.
It found 64 per cent of women and 62 per cent of men had wanted to have sex with someone on the first date but had held back because it was too soon.
Far more women (40 per cent) have regretted jumping straight into bed than men (27 per cent).
MEN DON'T REGRET JUMPING INTO BED
Most women (82 per cent) and 73 per cent of men admitted to first night nerves when they have sex with a new partner.
The biggest insecurity for women was worrying about their appearance (84 per cent), followed by their sexual performance (69 per cent) and how they will compare with their partner's previous lovers (61 per cent).
Men's biggest insecurity was their sexual performance (82 per cent), followed by how they compare with their partner's previous lovers (57 per cent) and their appearance (54 per cent).
Women's ideal venue for a first date is drinks in a bar (32 per cent) followed by a romantic meal (27 per cent). Men prefer it the other way round – 41 per cent (a romantic meal) and 27 per cent (drinks).
IllicitEncounters.com spokeswoman Jessica Leoni said: "The clear message is that if you want to have sex on a first date, do it.
“We have all grown up about sex and only prudes are going to think any less of you if you jump into bed on the first night.
“Online dating has speeded up the way we date and this has resulted in couples initiating sex on first dates far more quickly.
“We are leaving behind those old-fashioned attitudes where people are judged on their sexual behaviour.”
IllicitEncounters has seen a 25 per cent rise in registrations in the first four months of 2019.
Easter sees a surge in activity because the longer nights make people more adventurous in their behaviour and more likely to seek out a new partner."
