This Is Where 14 Percent of Americans Are Losing Their Virginity
Last month, a team of University of South Dakota researchers uncovered a number of interesting facts regarding young adults’ sexual behaviors.
In an anonymous survey of 195 men and 511 women at a small Midwestern university, 61 percent of men and 59.5 percent of women reported that they had engaged in sex while in a parked car. Of 422 respondents, 14 percent lost their virginity in a parked car. It seems while a number of things has changed when it comes to dating in the digital era, one thing that remains a coming-of-age (all pun intended) is sex in a parked car.
The study also revealed despite discomfort, sex in a parked car was primarily a positive sexual and romantic experience for both men and women.
While the backseat was identified as the most popular location, 34 percent of respondents favored the front seat to get down and dirty. So how long does car sex usually last? According to the study, 48.7 percent lasted about 15 minutes, but some very talented folks (5.5 percent) managed to fornicate under the stars for “more than an hour” in the car.
One respondent wrote, “We laid all the seats down and opened the back to let air in on the edge of the lake and turned the music on.” She continued, “We were where we could see the fireworks so we had sex until [they] were over.”
Other surprising facts:
· Men were much more likely than women to orgasm during their car-based sexcapades
· Women were more than twice as likely to be “injured by a feature of the car”
· Although millennials are touted as the “hookup” generation, car sex still remains an act of romantic partners rather than a casual fling
More importantly, condoms were used.
