A study found a third of people ease the pain of a breakup by having rebound sex- especially if their recently-ended relationships were long-term or if they were the ones that got dumped.  But while researchers found that the revenge sex phenomenon is real, the jury’s still out as to whether it helps.  Some experts say that having sex with new partners doesn’t necessarily make it easier to get over the one who got away. It certainly provides a nice distraction, though.
