ImagePeople over the age of 50 are among the most promiscuous lot, says a new survey.

The surprising statistics revealed a quarter of this age group cheat on their partner, while one in six said they never used contraception with a new lover.

The poll, from the Co-operative Pharmacy, also found a third admitted they had "slept around" and admitted to unprotected one-night stands with strangers.

The main reason people gave for not using contraception was that they "get carried away in the moment", reports the Daily Mail .

This is despite the fact that the number of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the over-50s is soaring across Britain.

Natika Halil, director of information at the Family Planning Association (FPA), said: "The message is the same for teenagers as well as people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s - don't take a risk with your sexual health over the festive period. There is only one protection against most STIs - wearing a condom."

The poll also found young people are less promiscuous than their elders were at the same age.

One in five teenagers said they had waited until the legal age of consent at 16 before having sex for the first time. This compared to one in 20 of those aged 20 or older.
