According to a new online study from a group called Scout GPS, cheap motels are out and highways are in. As USA Today reports, “11% of the 1,832 U.S. adults participating in the survey admit to ‘having participated in a sexual activity while driving.’”
Everyone knows not to text while driving, but let this be a PSA: don’t sex while driving either, people! Yes, your instructor never mentioned that in driving school. Probably because it’s common sense. But since you can now get cited for texting behind the wheel, can getting busted for DWBJ be far behind?
Apparently, even the threat of a head-on collision — no pun intended — isn’t stopping people from participating in sex acts while behind the wheel. Men were three times more likely to admit to pushing the clutch while someone else played with their gearshift. But for those that think it’s all in good fun, here’s a word to the wise: in a car wreck, you need more protection than a condom.
Interestingly, the 35 – 44 demographic beat out the 18 – 34 group for highest percentage of people willing to say they’ve participated in this kind of behavior. Just remember that next time Mom and Dad go out for a drive.
But hopefully, for anyone who’s ever gotten in an accident while fooling around behind the wheel, the whole thing still had a happy ending.
