Don’t lap dance and tell.
More than 70 per cent of Americans have cheated on their partners while attending raucous bachelor or bachelorette parties, a new survey found.
Bonusfinder.com surveyed 6000 people, including the soon-to-be-betrothed and their guests, about any frisky business at these events and defined cheating as ranging from flirting or downloading a dating app during the parties, to sexting or sleeping with someone other than their partner, the NY Post reports.
“Bachelor and bachelorette parties, it’s the last hurrah,” Bela Gandhi, founder of Smart Dating Academy, told The Post.
“These events are often fuelled by alcohol, controlled substances, peer pressure, and a lack of communication between partners.”
The most common instances of infidelity were relatively chaste, including receiving a lap dance (33.1 per cent) and smooching (21.3 per cent).
Yet 11.2 per cent of attendees admitted to sleeping with someone else — and 9 per cent said that they got hot and heavy in the sheets as part of a threesome.
“It just goes to show what people think is OK culturally at these events, versus having these conversations with their partners,” Ms Gandhi said.
Delaware topped the list as the most unfaithful state, with nearly 89 per cent of its residents admitting to cheating on their partners while attending bachelor or bachelorette parties, followed by North Dakota (85.7 per cent) and Idaho (84.8 per cent).
The most committed states, on the other hand, were Nebraska (with 57.1 per cent admitting to cheating), Vermont (63.6 per cent) and Maine (64 per cent).
