How to know you’re having revenge sex
In a very non-scientific study, experts have tried to find out what constitutes revenge sex, why we indulge in it, and how to identify when your latest tryst is in all or in part about seeking payback. When going through heartbreak, seducing one's ex and giving him or her taste of the past seems to be the best idea, as it puts you in a position of power.
But a broken heart is blind, and revenge sex will not resolve your issues with your ex, it will only enmesh you with the person all over again. "When going through a break-up, sometimes you just have to let go of the questions: why did this happen? You just have to accept it's over and move on," the Huffington Post quoted Amelia, an advertising exec, as saying. "Physical distance from the person is pretty crucial -- you really want to keep that. Sex will only entangle you with the person again, and make it that much harder to move on," she said.
