Survey: Quarter of young Dutch open to sex on first date
A quarter of single Dutch people under the age of 35 are not only willing to kiss on a first date, but also have sex. 26 percent of young Dutch singles have sometimes let themselves be lured into exciting after-date activities after the first date. This is according to a survey done by TNS on behalf of Lexa.nl among 1,501 Dutch singles below the age of 35. The survey shows that no sex on the first date still seems to be the norm. More than three-quarters, 77 percent, indicated that they'd rather wait until the third date or later. Women are less willing to have sex on a first date than men. More than half of the male respondents have no problem with having sex after one date, finding that sex brings them closer together and is important in a relationship. Some male respondents indicated that sex is just sex. Women on the other hand, are more hesitant. About a third of the female respondents indicated that they are afraid that having sex on the first date will change the likelihood of it turning into a long relationship. They believe, for example, that having sex on the first date will mean that the man will lose respect or interest. The majority of young Dutch singles do like to be prepared, however. 49 percent indicated that they wax or shave before a first date. The same amount take condoms along. 39 percent wear sexy underwear and take a toothbrush and 32 percent take extra underwear.
