This month’s silly bit of sales pitch dressed as market research comes from commercial vehicle hypermarket Anchor Vans who for reasons not entirely clear commissioned a study into carnal relations in motorised vehicles and concluded that ‘car sex is more popular than you may think’.
Which, as the auld boy was quick to point out, depends entirely on how popular you thought car sex was, if indeed you ever thought about it. It also begs the question ‘what exactly do they mean by car sex?’
It turns out that 64% of adults have had sex in a car, van or camper van. Furthermore, 10% admitted to having sex on the vehicle, rather than in it.
How this research benefits Anchor is anyone’s guess.
