For some of us, normal sex just isn’t enough, we’ve got to get adventurous and keep it fresh and interesting.

Are You A Sexual Exhibitionist?

Are You A Sexual Exhibitionist?

This might explain why a quarter of Brits have described themselves as sexual exhibitionists.

Now, we’re not talking flashing strangers to get their thrills, we’re talking trying new and exciting things in the bedroom, or out of it!

The most popular form of exhibitionism was found to be having sex in public, something that really adds to the thrill.

Others forms were named as being purposely loud when having sex or indulging in group sex sessions.

Despite being so confident sexually, the majority of those who consider themselves sexual exhibitionists claim to keep it a secret from others.

But some secrets can’t be kept forever and 62 per cent of people have admitted to being caught in the act, with 13 per cent of these being caught by a family member.

So why do exhibitionists do what they do? Well, two thirds said they are driven by the thrill and a fifth said they like the idea of getting caught in the act.

When it comes to whether their partners like their exhibitionist way, 34 per cent said their partner’s didn’t enjoy it personally.

When it came to confidence in the bedroom, women saw themselves as the more confident sex, rating themselves 7.5 out of 10 on the confidence scale whilst men only rated themselves at 6.1 out of 10.

Thomas O’Connell of ukmedix.com, who conducted the research, said, “The secret sex lives of people around the UK are always a bit of a mystery, so we wanted to look at the trait of exhibitionism, along with how confident people feel when getting it on.

“To see that as many as one in four of us are exhibitionists, but are likely to keep it secret, was surprising- clearly a lot of us like the idea of being ‘caught in the act’ and the thrill it might give!”

So how beneficial can exhibitionism be and can it be dangerous? Thomas says that as long as you’re obeying the law it can be plenty of fun.

He said, “As long as you’re not putting yourself in any bad situations, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of exhibitionism. Just ensure your partner feels the same and you’re not doing anything illegal, as the thrill you get from being ‘caught’ may not outweigh the repercussions!”
