Where the Wild Women Are: (Very) Revealing Stats about Public Sex
The findings of the LELO Global Survey have always lent some pretty interesting results (as you’ll see on our our new infographic) and we love to look at how we can use these results to help you get you out of your bedroom and most importantly, out of your routine.
Our aforementioned survey found that women are exploring the great outdoors more than ever by going public with sex. So as we enter the final days of the year why not take some tips from our sensual surveyors and pick at least three of our most adrenaline-inducing public destinations to sexplore over the next 31 days? If you’re new to putting the ‘wild’ in wilderness, fear not because LELO is here as your appointed guide.
So grab your partner, pack up and review the findings, your ‘sexcursion’ is now underway…
Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex in a Car: 73%
HOW TO DO IT: Body-generated steam won’t fog up the windows for about seven minutes, so before you get to backseat business, shut each of your coat sleeves into the top corners of each back seat door, creating two makeshift curtains. Also remember that the sun also sets earlier in winter, meaning there’s more time for you to take advantage of the ambient darkness. We also have a few other handy tips for pulling off the perfect erotic auto experience.
Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex in a Public Park: 36%
HOW TO DO IT: When it comes to public parks, size matters. The bigger, more vegetated the park, the better, but don’t rely solely on Mother Nature for cover. Bring a variety of blankets for both warmth and privacy. In an isolated or forested area, get in between the blankets in the spoon position. Even if interlopers get curious from afar, it will appear you two are innocently cuddling.
Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex at the Office: 22%
HOW TO DO IT: Visits by loved ones are common during the holiday season. If you have your own office, tell your coworkers that your partner is coming to quickly drop something off. If your office is openly laid out, best to “work late” and have your partner stop by once everyone has left for the day. Either way, note the schedule of the cleaning personnel.
Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex During Their Commute: 11%
HOW TO DO IT: Everyone’s commute is different, and each provides its own obstacles and risk factors. Whether you walk, bike, drive or train to work, you can always take a little detour for something other than coffee. The next day you commute to work, make note of hidden spaces, alleys and compartments suitable to fit two bodies, and remember: adrenaline is the new caffeine.
Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex on a Plane: 3%
HOW TO DO IT: Don’t expect your admission into the mile-high club to be an easy (or comfortable) one. The only sane way to pull this one off is on a long, overseas flight (perhaps on your way to a sexy getaway) after dinner when the lights go down, and everyone reclines into sleep. One-by-one, sneak to the plane’s rear bathroom and make it quick. As a precaution, bring an air sickness bag along with you, so if there’s any knocking, you can pretend that one of you is sick, and the other is just being a caring partner.

Having sex in the bedroom all the time is like eating at home all the time—you know what you’re going to get, you’ve have it a thousand times, and it does little more than fulfill a primitive, biological need. However, when you get out and taste new places, you diversify your pallet, broaden your horizons and treat yourself to an experience worth boasting about.
Now that you have everything you need to know start the season off with a bang, it’s time to start sexting your partner to get them as excited as you are! And when you take things back indoors come winter, surprise your partner with a pleasure giftset that lets you fan the flames of your newfound adventurer spirit and celebrate the completion of one epic month.
