Workplace sex more likely at factories

Factories may not rank high on the list of sexy places to get it on, but the people who work there are more likely to have had a sexual encounter at work than those in other professions, according to a new survey.

U.K. human resources firm Reabur released a survey of 1,434 people this week to determine the country’s top 10 “randiest” professions. Factory workers are at the top of the list, with 19% of those surveyed admitting to having had a sexual encounter at the workplace.

Office workers were a close second, with 16% admitting to getting frisky with a co-worker on the job.

Rounding out the top-10 list are bar staff (15%), retail assistants (13%), plumbers (11%), teachers (10%), chefs (9%), postal workers (9%), firefighters (7%) and cabin crew (6%).

The results seem to disprove commonly held stereotypes about which workers are the most sexually active at work. According to the survey, 48% of the people polled said airplane cabin crew would be the most promiscuous.

Georgina Read, Reabur’s co-managing director, said the poll proves that stereotypes can be quite wrong, but she wasn’t surprised by the professions that ranked first and second on the list.

“Jobs that require a large amount of repetition tend to allow the mind to wander, quite clearly leaving it free to think of other, more exciting things,” she said in a release. “Employees must remember that not only is getting randy in the workplace likely to be a disciplinary offence, but it can also cause a great deal of friction amongst colleagues. You may think you’re being discreet, but these things always have a way of creeping out!”
