Study says that more than 54 percent of Britain’s drivers have had sex in a car

Article by Christian A., on December 30, 2010

About 54% of people surveyed admit to having had sex in a car, according to research by Autoquake, the United Kingdom's premier online car retailer. Of this figure, about 32% said that sex in a car is overrated while 22% describe it as a fantastic experience. Meanwhile, those who have never had sex in a car are divided evenly between thinking that it is something they’d like to try and those who think it’s just wrong.

Both genders are clearly split with one-in-three men (28%) saying sex in a car is fantastic while only 18% of women feel the same way. About 31% of women think car sex is wrong, with only 11% of men agreeing. Autoquake’s research revealed a generational divide, but one that’s unexpected.

While 39% of those over 55 years old say car sex is fantastic, only 13% of 18-24 year olds have tried sex in a car and really enjoyed it. Old-timers, of all the age groups surveyed, are least likely to find the idea objectionable as only 11% of over 55s said sex in a car was wrong. Dermot Halpin, Autoquake CEO, said that the company is "surprised" that many drivers used their cars as mobile bedrooms and the company is "impressed" of the "older generation leading the way."

Here is the list with the best vehicles for having sex: 1) Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate - The huge load area makes the big Merc perfect for amorous couples. 2) The Volkswagen Beetle (original) - Making love in a Bug is rather snug, but if something’s difficult it’s also more satisfying. 3) 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. 4) Mini Cooper - Recreate the swinging 60s by swinging in a Mini. 5) Volvo V70 - The dog lover’s favourite makes the perfect car for, err, dogging. 6) Volkswagen Golf GTI - An efficient, satisfying car for efficient, satisfying sex. 7) Alfa Romeo Spider - The romantic choice for the more mature lady and a recent graduate. 8) Rolls-Royce Ghost  - Why not do it in the lap of luxury? Just mind the upholstery. 9) Aston Martin Vanquish - You’ll be keeping the British end up, as Roger Moore once said. 10) Land Rover Discovery - Whatever the weather, the Discovery will get you to that quiet rural car park.
