All work and no play? Not really: Survey says lots of people are having sex while working from home


(NEW YORK) — (NOTE NATURE) Sure, working from home keeps you safe from COVID-19, saves on commuting time and, studies have shown, stresses you out less than working in your old office did.  But a new survey shows another perk: people are having sex on the clock.

According to a new, non-scientific One Poll survey of 2,000 Americans, 58% of them copped to having sex while they were supposed to be working from home. One thousand baby boomers and 1,000 of their millennial counterparts took part in the poll, and perhaps not surprisingly, the millennials partook in the workplace partnering nearly twice as much as the boomers did. 

In fact, 67% of the millennials surveyed said lockdown has “substantially” changed their sex life, with 46% saying they have more time to bump and grind than ever before.

However, it’s not just millennials who are finding their way in the “new normal.” Nearly four in five of the singles in the survey pool say they’ve gone on virtual dates since the pandemic began to take hold in March.  In fact, nearly four in five say social distancing measures have actually made dating “a lot more intimate” than before.
