There's a new dawn upon us, thanks to high-tech car companies such as Tesla. The age of the self-driving car has arrived, and 'drivers' now have plenty of time on their hands while in their cars, and are looking for new experiences on the road in the privacy of their vehicles.

DatingAdvisor, along with casual dating community, interviewed no less than 12,821 men and women on the subject of "sex on wheels". The specific question asked was:

What activities could you imagine doing in a self-driving car to take advantage of the time gained?

Somewhere in the range of 70% of respondents claimed they could definitely see themselves having sex in a self-driving car.

Some people, of course, would use their newly gained free time in their cars to take in a bit of scenery, catch up on sleep, read a book or relax in front of a movie. And we can't say there's anything wrong with that. However, the survey found that the vast majority of respondents were especially keen on the idea of getting frisky during the ride. Indeed, 70% of women, and 72% of men were up for having sex while behind the wheel.

So, it looks like the future is hotting up, fast. However, the fantasy of having sex in your motor isn't anything new. Today, as in the past, the car is a popular spot for a quickie from time to time.

With this in mind, we thought we'd take it upon us to find out what people had to say about having sex during a car trip - recently, or in the past - without having a self-driving car to help with the steering!

Passenger Pleasures the Driver

Look away now, traffic police! Nearly 25% of people who responded to the survey claimed to have been pleasured by somebody in the passenger seat while out for a drive. We're more than happy to picture it, but not as happy as we are that nothing drastic happened. It's certainly a risky way to get your kicks!

Driver Pleasures the Passenger 

On the other side, 6% of drivers have taken a passenger’s needs in hand before... is this even riskier? It certainly seems so!

Getting Frisky on the Back Seat

Somewhere around 8% of people who got back to us admitted that they've even had sex on the back seat, whilst being driven by somebody else! We have little doubt that the chauffeur probably glanced in the rear view mirror more than a couple of times - for 'traffic safety', of course...

Men / Women going solo

A few more women than men - 12% to 11% - also claim to have given themselves pleasure while driving, too. Shame nobody else was around to offer a hand!

Sex on the commute

The “public” component of “public transport” is apparently not enough to put off some respondents. Around 7% of people in our survey said that they’ve managed to have sex on the bus or train in the past.

2/3 of Respondents Have Had Fun While Parked

Many surveys have shown that people love a quickie in their car. Our questionnaire only confirmed this fact, and also proved that people like to also get busy in a parked car - with 66% of men and 62% of women claiming to get off on it. However, on the flip side, about 20% of respondents said that car sex had been a let down. We don't know the details (perhaps leg room was an issue?), but they made clear that they aren't up for trying it again. Different strokes for different folks!
