- 59% of married people think that sleeping with a sex doll IS cheating
- They think this because they feel that their partner is denying them their love in favour of an inanimate object
- The 41% who think sleeping with a love doll isn’t adulterous said that they didn’t see any tangible difference between the doll or the use of sex toys and watching adult films
- 80% said that the doll alone wouldn’t stop them from wanting to have an affair
- The results come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who surveyed over 800 over their members
With the technological advancement of love dolls in recent years, and with their popularity growing and growing, it begs the question, can sleeping with one be considered a form of cheating in the modern day?
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, sought to find the answer, surveying over 800 of their members, with over half (59%) saying, well, yes: having sex with a love doll IS cheating.
But why? While there is obviously no emotional relationship with the love doll, those who think it an adulterous act stated that making love was more than just a physical endeavour; it’s an expression of love, meaning that their partner sleeping with anyone (or anything) would be seen as denying that love to them to instead spend time satisfying themselves with an inanimate object, and nobody wants to feel second best to a piece of plastic.
The 41% who felt that sleeping with a love doll was fair game said that they didn’t see any tangible difference between the doll or the use of sex toys and adult films.
Members were also surveyed on whether sleeping with the doll would make them less likely to want to cheat on their partner. The answer was a resounding no, with as many as 80% claiming that a doll alone wouldn’t be enough to dissuade them from having an affair; 5% said yes while 15% were “unsure”.
“What’s apparent is that the majority are worried of feeling inferior to an inanimate object,” said the site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.
“With that said, sex toys aren’t exactly new, so one could argue that there’s little difference between their partner using one of those or cuddling with an incredibly expensive bit of plastic.”
