The survey conducted by online sex toy retailer bondara.co.uk showed that 35 per cent admitted that they used intimate items they shared with a former partner with their new love interest, the Daily Star reported.
Chris Simms, Bondara's managing director said that the question of whether sex toys shared with an ex should die with the relationship was an interesting one and the stigma that used to be attached to using intimate accessories in the bedroom was now a thing of the past.
Simms said that from a hygiene point of view there was no issue with reusing sex toys with a new partner as long as they had been thoroughly cleaned with warm soapy water or sex toy cleaner.
The survey also revealed Brits were not shy when it came to introducing sex toys to a new partner.
37 per cent of Britons said there is no need to wait while a third would wait less than a month.
