BRITS behaving badly: People in the UK take more lovers than the french, says a new study.
If you’re on the hunt for a faithful partner, don’t set your sights on Italy, according to new research.
You’d also best steer clear of Spain.
The study, commissioned by an Italian website that arranges flings, has shown 59 per cent of Italian men admit to betraying a spouse or partner at least once.
Over a third (35 per cent) of Italian women made the same affair-ridden admission
Perhaps most shocking though, are the infidelity figures for the UK.
Almost half (45 per cent) of British men admit to straying from their significant other at least once.
And a considerable 21 per cent of UK women said the same.
But Brits aren’t the only ones behaving badly.
Proving that infidelity is an international affair, results showed the Spanish also have a strong tendency to stray.
56 per cent of men and 34 per cent of women from the sovereign state have crossed the unfaithful line at least once.
Surprisingly, the French were the most faithful, with less than a third of both men and women saying they’ve been disloyal.
Head of the website behind the research, Alex Fantini, said the difference in figures can be attributed to the sexual culture in each country.
Speaking to The Times, Alex said: “Officially, affairs remain taboo in (France and Spain), which is why people do it more.
“On the one hand people are afraid to be judged, but on the other they want to have affairs because it is forbidden.”
