Although we’re becoming more open about sex, it’s fair to say, as a nation, we’re still probably a little backward when it comes to dishing the deets on our between-the-sheets activities. But hold up! Just recently, The Irish Times surveyed over 12,000 Irish people about their sex lives (the biggest Irish sex survey to date, FYI), and it turns out we’re a much kinkier bunch than you might have thought.

With that in mind, we dove a little deeper to uncover some facts that show the auld sod is much more forward-thinking  in the bedroom than you probably imagined.
