    ...We asked you about your sex life and 12,639 of you answered, giving us a snapshot of what goes on in the bedrooms of Ireland. Here are the full survey results...

    ...Base: 12,072 participants who completed The Irish Times sex survey carried out between June 8th and June 15th 2015. A small number of participants who listed their gender as transgender/other have been excluded from the graph due to low numbers...

    ...A total of 12,639 people completed the survey, with 12,134 valid responses used in the follow-up analysis. The gender breakdown was 54 per cent male to 46 per cent female, with less than 0.5 per cent identifying as transgender or “other”. Of the female respondents, 88 per cent were heterosexual, 8 per cent bisexual, 3 percent homosexual, and 2 per cent asexual or “other”. A greater percentage of male respondents identified as homosexual at 9 per cent, but there were fewer bisexuals at 5 per cent...


    ...Gay male respondents have had the most sexual partners, with 52 per cent saying they have had sex with more than 20 people, followed by bisexual men at 36 per cent and bisexual women at 27 per cent...

    ...The 173 lesbians who completed the survey expressed greater satisfaction in their sex lives than any other category with over half (51 per cent) saying they were “very happy”...

    ...heterosexual males were most likely to say they “really enjoyed” sex at over two thirds of respondents (69 per cent), whereas just under half of heterosexual women (49 per cent) said they really enjoyed sex. Homosexual women were the second most likely group to say they “really enjoyed” sex at 68 per cent. A smaller proportion of homosexual men said they “really” enjoyed sex (54 per cent), but a further 40 per cent said they enjoyed it “most of the time”...

    ...Heterosexual men were more like to say that sex was “very important” at 66 per cent. (gay men at 54%)...

    ...Bisexual males were the only other category not to rate trust as the most important element, instead citing good communication....

    ...Homosexual females were least likely to have cheated on their partner with just 2 per cent saying they had been unfaithful, followed by heterosexual females at 4 per cent. They were also the least likely to be in open relationships. Bisexual males were the most likely to have cheated, with 31 per cent saying they had done so. They, along with female bisexuals, were most likely to be in an open relationship (14 per cent in both categories). Of those who had been unfaithful, just over two-thirds said their partner was not aware of the infidelity.

    ...(graphics show male gay as 80% monogamous; male hetero 91% but female hetero thought it was 96% ooops; bi 55%)...

    ...Gay men were the most likely to have masturbated with someone else online, with 61 per cent saying they had done so....

    The Irish Times sex survey: have you felt same-sex attraction?

    A quarter of all heterosexual respondents who participated in the survey said they had felt attraction to a member of the opposite sex. However, this headline figure masks some stark differences between the sexes. Four in 10 heterosexual females (40 per cent) said they had felt attraction to members of the same sex compared to just 14 per cent of heterosexual males.
