Sex therapist Dr Tammy Nelson reported a 45 per cent leap in inquiries about discussing the subject with partners in recent months.
She said: “Couples are now keener than ever to spice things up a bit. Many have started to outsource their needs in the shape of open relationships.”
While men are usually the ones who suggest more sexual freedom, it is women who want it to continue, it is claimed.
Dr Nelson said: “Women are now much more in charge and much more demanding.
That’s why we’re seeing more open relationships.
