We asked our users, “Where is the most public place you and your partner have had sex?”
A handful of our users considered sex at home with the windows open “public,” but those statistics aren’t included here. However, our users are definitely adventurous, with locations ranging from public amenities to train cars to a church parking lot.

Younger couples are having a lot more sex in working spaces, likely because of the number of students enjoying private time in the library.

- air hockey table
- hospital bed
- a neighbor’s lawn
- a cruise ship laundry room
- a lighthouse
- airport shower room
- display shed at home improvement store
