According to a survey by Yellow Octopus, people are getting busy at work and we're not talking about keeping on top of the office admin. Ahem. Yep, they surveyed 1,000 people to find out just how frisky their 9-5 made them and the results are, well a) making us uncomfortable and b) surprising.
Of the people surveyed, 11% admitted to having sex at work but not just any old sex, oh no, sex with a co-worker. Shut the front door. Which means at least 2 people in this room right now are doing it *looks around the room to decide who's got that in them*.
A further 4% said they'd done it but not with a co-worker - which means they've probably snuck someone in after hours and really put that meeting table to some use. My poor, poor notepad will never get over this.
OK, so the majority of people engaged in this risky activity after work but as many as 36% got down and dirty in office hours. Next time two of your coworkers slink off for a thought shower, ahem, you know what they're really doing. They're naked, shaved to within an inch of their lives and mounting furniture that was really only ever built for the weight of a Berol pen and pad.
A lot of people are practising self love at work too. And by self love we mean masturbation, solo sex, downstairs dj-ing, clearing the snorkel - they are touching themselves goddamn it, there is no nice way of putting it. And while we'd say there's nothing wrong with a bit of self love, there's something uneasy about fiddling with your bits and then coming back to your keyboard and putting in your holiday request as if nothing's happened. Additionally, 5% of the women questioned admitted to masturbating at work versus 13% of men.
So did these people ever get caught in the act? Hell yes they did! 14% said their dirty little secret didn't stay secret for very long. And let that be the ultimate reminder that having sex at work with a co-worker is never really SFW. Keep those burning loins for after hours people.
