After a breakup most people go through a mourning period of seclusion and grief. Some people try to get out there and have fun so as not to think about it as much. Either way you choose to get over a breakup, science shows that about 3 months after a breakup 66% of people have probably had sex with another person.
Who are you shagging?
Well research and survey show that 20% of people will have had rebound sex with their ex, 24% will have had rebound sex with a stranger and 56% will have had rebound sex with a previous ex.
Rebound sex, which is loosely considered casual sex that helps you get through the pain of a breakup, is a post-relationship coping mechanism that more and more people are going for according to research. If you choose hookups over chocolates and a good cry to get over a heartbreak, the good news is you’re not alone.
According to reports, researchers at the University of Missouri have confirmed that rebound sex is a pervasive phenomenon. In a study of 170 undergrads, 35 percent engaged in rebound sex within four weeks of a breakup.
