Sex can come with so many benefits; a natural stress relief, to just downright fun – so we rarely think about it ever going embarrassingly wrong, or injury-related. Yet, it seems quite common to have at least one embarrassing sex story stowed away in the ‘please let me forget’ memory bank.
With that in mind experts at End of Tenancy Cleaning London surveyed 2,397 people to investigate which household rooms had caused the most sex related injuries and the results were draw dropping.
First Place: Bathroom
If you are already accident prone a rendezvous in the bathroom is somewhere you want to steer clear of! A whopping 91% of people are injured during a steamy shower moment with their partner.
Even though it’s the most dangerous place in the house to have sex, a total of 75% of people said that it was their most common place to have sex in.
Second Place: Kitchen
With knives, cookers, and crockery in the way, it’s no surprise in second place is the kitchen with, 86% of people injured whilst turning the heat up in this room.
Yet, 69% of people said that it is their most common place in the house to have sex – I hope they wipe their counter tops down after!
Lily Francis, 46
“Me and my husband have been together since we were 16 and like with any long term relationship you’re always looking to spice up things – little did we know we’d end up in A&E.
Acting on a very spontaneous urge as I was cooking the dinner we started to go at it. But when we moved stuff off the counter tops a knife came off and landed on my husband’s foot – tip first – excuse the pun. So, what was meant to be a spontaneous romp turned into 16 hours of sitting up A&E on a Friday night and with a ruined casserole.”
Third Place: Living Room
With ‘Netflix and Chill’ becoming a new date night favourite it’s no wonder why people are reaching for the Durex whilst having a cuddle up on the sofa.
Even though a staggering 83% of people said that they most commonly have sex here, 75% of people have been injured whilst having sex in the living room. Perhaps sofas aren’t as comfy as we thought!
Fourth Place: Bedroom
The bedroom ranks fourth with 72% of people saying that have sustained some kind of sex related injury here. However, 96% of people said it was the most common place in the house they have sex.
Dan James, 38
“When I was younger I ‘dated’ this girl who had braces… yes I think you know where I’m going. My parents were out for the weekend and she came over and we were getting into it and she gave me oral – to which I screamed and not through enjoyment.
Her brace had come loose and caught my foreskin. Luckily, I’m still well intact but after that we never saw each other again.”
Fifth Place: Loft/Attic
With slanted and low roofs, is it any wonder that 67% of people have had a sex related injury in a loft or attic? However, only 33% of people said that this is the most common place they would have sex.
Last Place: Larder
In last place is the pantry with only 3% of people enduring any kind of sexual related injury in here – making it the safest place in the house to have sex. However, it’ll be a bit of a squeeze. 10% of people said it is one of the common places that they have sex.
Eddie Morris, 27
“It was the first year of living with my partner and of course we had to ‘christen’ every room of the house – and I mean every room. I was in the kitchen and as that was already ticked off the list, we fondled our way towards the larder only for my partner to grab the top shelf to hold himself ‘steady’ and instead got knocked out by an avalanche of spuds.”
