You know what’s great? Cars. You know what’s even better? Having sex in them. Don’t you agree?

Everyone loves car sex. I love it, you love it, college kids love it – which is why psychologist Cindy Struckman-Johnson conducted a study called "Sexual Behavior in Parked Cars Reported By Midwestern College Men and Women.” Amazing!

For her study, Struckman-Johnson surveyed 706 college students on whether or not they engage in x-rated drives around the block, why they do it, and what they do during it. This is all super important info, so I hope you’re paying attention.

Struckman-Johnson and her team found that 59.9 percent of those surveyed had car sex at some point in their lives, and the most common car-sex activity is good old-fashioned P-in-V sex, followed by blowjobs. I mean, road head is cool and all, but parked-car-head is where it's at.


The researchers also found that the four most common reasons people get it on in an automobile is:
1. To satisfy their partner’s arousal (aww, so thoughtful).
2. To satisfy their own arousal.
3. Because they love each other and can’t wait a moment longer.
4. Because the horny couple has absolutely nowhere else to have sex, so they resort to cramming inside their vehicle, even if it's a shitty hooptie
