It’s an unusual way to burn off the Christmas turkey, but 54% of us admit to having had sex in a car, according to research by Autoquake.com, the UK’s leading online car retailer.
Despite the lack of space and the risk of getting caught, 22% claim sex on four wheels is a fantastic experience. However, 32% think it’s overrated.
Those who have never had car sex are evenly split between those thinking discussing Ugandan affairs on the back seat is something they’d like to try and those who think it’s just plain wrong.
There’s a clear split between the genders. Almost a third of men (28%) say sex in a car is fantastic. A mere 18% of women feel the same way. While 31% of women think car sex is wrong, only 11% of men agree.
Autoquake’s research uncovered a generational divide, too, but not the one you might expect. While only 13% of 18-24 year olds have tried sex in a car and really enjoyed it, 39% of over 55s say car sex is fantastic. Of all the age groups surveyed, old-timers are least likely to find the idea objectionable – just 11% of over 55s said sex in a car was wrong.
Autoquake’s CEO, Dermot Halpin, said, “We’re surprised that so many of drivers have used their cars as mobile bedrooms, and impressed that the older generation is leading the way.” Dermot has this advice for anyone considering sex on four wheels; “If you are thinking of having sex in a car this festive season, don’t forget to leave the heating on.”
