Morally wrong

However, as a collective, 61% of all people surveyed regarded it as morally wrong, with 36% finding it acceptable.

Other findings about Irish attitudes towards other sexual antics found that of the 954 people surveyed, 88% believed that sex outside marriage was acceptable, while 90% felt that having a baby outside of marriage is also acceptable.
