5. Sex with a stranger

6. An affair with a work colleague

7. Sex with a friend

10. Sex with someone in authority – police officer or traffic warden

IllicitEncounter’s finding were somewhat more vanilla than the average worldwide fantasies, which according to sexpert and academic Dr Justin Lehmiller are:

Most common sexual fantasies

  2. BDSM
