  • Third of British women dream of an affair

    Infidelity is something we usually link with men – but a new study has revealed that one third of British women fantasise about cheating, while nearly the same amount dream of it becoming a full-blown affair.The survey, carried out by Diva TV, questioned over 1,100 women, and found that, along with dreams of an affair, 19% of us secretly want to tell our mother-in-law exactly what we think of her, and 16% harbour a desire to sleep with another woman.Maya Bhose, spokeswoman of Diva TV, says: ‘We conducted this study to gain insight into the minds of British women and have used it to ensure our programming, which includes everything from the drama of The Bold and the Beautiful to the wisdom of Oprah, reflects the aspirations of our audience. These results show what fertile imaginations British women have.’These potent mind-wanderings even include fantasies about porn.
