Have you ever stretched the truth about what goes on in your bedroom? If so, you're not alone.
A new study from Ohio State University at Mansfield found that most people of both genders lied about their sexual history - although in different ways.
In a paper published Tuesday in the journal Sex Roles, Professor of Psychology Terri Fisher shared the results of a survey of a group of 293 heterosexual male and female college students on their sexual history, as well as on other nonsexual activities relating to gender roles.
Men reported having sex at an earlier age and with more people than was actually true. Women, on the other hand, wanted to be seen as having less sexual experience than they actually had, to match what is expected of women.
However, the same participants were willing to admit to everyday activities typically associated with the opposite sex - such as changing a car tire.
