According to a recent study, on average, one out of every 10 people admittedly have had sex in the confines of an airport terminal while waiting for a flight to depart for business or vacation. The research, conducted throughout Europe by travel website Jetcost.co.uk, polled 2,521 UK citizens and 1,000 more people from other European Union countries.
From the sound of it, the Mile-High Club is old-world stuff of our parents’ generation. These days, in a culture ever siding with instant gratification, the Airport Terminal Bathroom Club is the new, hip trend–one that I can fully get behind, if you know what I mean.
From The Daily Mail:
Three quarters (76 per cent) choose to have sex in airport toilets while 21 per cent decided to take the risk in storage areas or rooms.
Twelve per cent people who had had a sexual encounter at the airport admitted they had been caught by either staff or members of the public.
When asked why they had sex at the airport, 32 per cent said they were ‘in the holiday spirit’ and 27 per cent admitted they wanted the ‘thrill’ of not knowing if they would get caught.
All respondents were also asked if they had ever had a sexual encounter on an aircraft, to which only four per cent admitted to it. Thirty-one per cent of these had been caught in the act.
Makes you think twice about your itinerary the next time you fly, eh?
It’s a shame the rush is kind of taken away, knowing there’s only a 12 percent chance of getting caught in the act. Like, if the odds of getting caught were 50/50, you know any sex going down in airport bathrooms would be absolutely ravaging, because only the truly committed would partake. In the same facet, though, this pretty much corroborates you have less of a chance of getting caught banging in the airport than you do in your dorm room, so it sounds like a total green light for takeoff to me.
Do me a favor and look around your lecture hall, cube farm, or basically wherever you are right now, and just know that out of the next 10 people you see, statistics say at least one has fucked in an airport. That’s awesome.
If you happen to be reading this in an airport right now, what are you waiting for? You could be that statistic..
