Do you have a crush on someone, despite being in a serious relationship with somebody? Well, this may actually help boost your desire for the current partner. An interesting survey by researchers from Columbia University, Indiana University and the University of Kentucky-Lexington suggested that 70% women in the US reported that having an outside crush actually improved their desire resulting in a better life with their long-term partner.

The researchers analyzed responses from 160 women aged between 19 to 56 years. Most women were either married or in long-term relationships with men. A majority of the women said that their crushes were on colleagues at the work place.

The researchers said, "The majority of women reported the crush did not impact their relationship. The results also revealed that most women kept their crushes secret from their partner. Participants also reported that these crushes improved their desire for their partner."

Women who reported improvements in sexual desire acknowledged that they tended to 'funnel' the desire for their crush into their encounters with their long-term partners.

The results are published in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy.
