Would you be surprised if I told you 54 per cent of us admit to having had sex in a car?
In spite of being cramped and the risk of getting caught, 22 per cent questioned in a recent survey say sex on four wheels is a fantastic experience. However, 32 per cent think sex in a car is overrated.
Those who’ve never had car sex are evenly split between thinking a bunk-up 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 one-in-three men, 28 per cent, say sex in a car is fantastic. Just 18 per cent of women feel the same way. While 31 per cent of women think car sex is wrong just 11 per cent of men agree.
The research uncovered a generational divide, too, but not the one you might expect.
While only 13 per cent of 18-24 year olds have tried sex in a car and really enjoyed it, 39 per cent 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 per cent of over 55s said sex in a car was wrong.
I guess I’m a little surprised that so many drivers have used their cars as mobile bedrooms, and impressed that the older generation are leading the way.
Anyway, my advice for anyone considering sex on four wheels is if you’re thinking of having sex in a car don’t forget to leave the heating on.
To help anyone prepared to go to such extreme lengths to be close to the one they love, here’s my list of top 10 cars to have sex in:
- Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate
The huge load area makes the big Merc perfect for amorous couples.
- The Volkswagen Beetle (original)
Making love in a Bug is rather snug, but if something’s difficult it’s also more satisfying.
- Ferrari 458 Italia
If you are going to have sex in a Ferrari, do it in a semi-auto so there’s no danger of injuring yourself on an ice-cold gearstick.
- Mini Cooper
Recreate the swinging 60s by swinging in a Mini.
- Volvo V70
The dog lover’s favourite makes the perfect car for, err, dogging.
- Volkswagen Golf GTI
An efficient, satisfying car for efficient, satisfying sex.
- Alfa Romeo Spider
The romantic choice for the more mature lady and a recent graduate.
- Rolls-Royce Ghost
Why not do it in the lap of luxury? Just mind the upholstery.
- Aston Martin Vanquish
You’ll be keeping the British end up, as Roger Moore once said.
- Land Rover Discovery
Whatever the weather, the Discovery will get you to that quiet rural car park.
