Turns out, hooking up in a car goes far beyond the plight of the American teenager. Then again, was this particular high-adrenaline romp ever truly reserved for high school aged people? I mean, if nothing else, cars are basically bedrooms on wheels — especially for those of you who have back seats full of dirty laundry and food wrappers — seriously, that's gross and you're a garbage human. Folks from all walks of life continue to get down behind the wheel. Question is, how do we know this? It's not as if car salesman across The U.S. end their pitch with, "Excuse me, do you plan on having sex in this Sudan?"
This is where research comes in and thankfully, the fine people over at Drivingtests.org did all the leg work for us —
"We wanted to know how often car sex happens outside of the movies, so we surveyed over 1,000 Americans on their relevant experiences to determine how common automobile intimacy is, and our findings were both surprising and steamy. Read on to see how America makes love in its vehicles. "
How Common Are Car Hookups?
- "About 84 percent of those surveyed have engaged in some sexual act while in a vehicle. If you’ve only gotten it on in the bedroom, you’re in the minority. No wonder our films feature sex in cars so often – or perhaps movies actually inspire the trend."
The Kind Of Car Counts
- "For ease of lovemaking, the sedan rules supreme, with about 66 percent of respondents having hooked up in one. That may change, however, as SUVs occupy an ever-increasing share of the market. At the end of 2013, they represented just half of all vehicles sold. By the end of 2016, they were up to 63 percent."
Positions And Parking
"Our respondents made one thing clear: In cars, intercourse made things complicated. They rated oral sex and mutual masturbation as best (each 4.2 on our scale from 1 to 5). But when they did elect to have intercourse, they favored getting creative. The missionary position was ranked among the least comfortable options (a 3.0 on our scale), whereas the cowgirl and doggy-style positions were considered the best ways to get it on within the confines of a car."
"Parking lots were the top response (over 56 percent), though we hope they were pretty empty. The desire for more seclusion explains the second most common spot: a remote location such as the woods. Just because respondents got frisky in a vehicle didn’t mean they were partial to exhibitionism."
