Society may lead us to believe otherwise, but new research in fact shows that when men and women in realtionships Holiday together, it is the women who are more likely to ogle someone.
Hiding behind sunglasses was found to be the easiest eay of doing this without getting caught.
According to research by a leading online independent travel agency in the UK, it would appear that British men and women might have a lot to worry about when it comes to their partners eyeing up other members of the opposite sex on Holiday.
A poll by www.sunshine.co.uk was carried out in order to find out more about behaviour of men and women on holiday. 1,972 heterosexual UK men and women in relationships took part in the study, all of whom had been abroad on holiday in the past 12 months with their partner.
When asked, ‘On your last holiday with your wife or girlfriend, were you guilty of looking at other women?’ 56% of the men taking part answered ‘yes’. When the women polled were asked the same question, in regards to looking at other men, 74% admitted they were guilty of checking out other men on holiday.
All of the men and women polled who admitted to checking out other members of the opposite sex whilst on holiday with their partner, were asked if they did anything to cover that up, to which 77% said they did. Top ways in which ogling other members of the opposite sex was hidden by respondents were as follows;
Waited till partner wasn’t around 36%
Hid the Fact behind sunglasses 22%
Just made sure partner didn’t see 19%
Pretended to be looking at member of same sex 17%
Chris Clarkson, co-founder of sunshine.co.uk, spoke about the findings:
“When looking into whether or not men and women in relationships ogle other people on holiday, despite being with their partner, it was interesting to see that women were the guiltier party. Either that, or women are more honest!
“As for those hiding the Fact behind sunglasses, that’s very sneaky! I wonder how many of these people got caught in the act and had a lot of explaining to do.”
