Cars host love and war

17 December, 2012

Drivers are using their cars for far more than just getting from A to B, according to Confused.com’s motoring secrets survey.

It found that half (50%) of male drivers and 37% of women in the UK said they have had sex in their car.

Welsh drivers appear to be the friskiest with 52% of drivers in Wales having had sex in their car, while Londoners are least likely to have had sex in their cars (35%).

However, having an argument is a more likely pursuit, with nearly 55% of men and almost 57% of women fighting with their loved ones while in the car.

Women voted Audi drivers the sexiest male drivers (21%), however men find women sexiest when they drive a Mini (19%).

Male BMW drivers are considered second sexiest by women (19%), followed jointly by Mercedes and Porsche drivers (6%). Men's second choice was female Audi drivers (12%), followed closely by women who drive BMWs (10%).

The survey also uncovered some further guilty secrets and risky behaviour among both drivers and passenger:

  • Having passengers partying in the back of their car applied to 15% of men and 9% of women.
  • Guilty of racing at the lights? 21% of men and 13% of women drivers admit to this.
  • Dumping my boyfriend/girlfriend in the car: 10% of women and 12% of men broke up behind the wheel.
  • Flirting with another driver: 22% of men and 15% of women have tried to attract other drivers on the road.
  • Had a snack? 64% of men and 71% of women eat in their car.

Gareth Kloet, head of car insurance at Confused.com said: “The results of this demonstrate that we truly are a nation of car lovers in every sense of the word.

“The number of men and women who tell us they have had sex in their cars has increased since last year's poll, with 37% of women compared with 30% last year, and 50% of men compared with 48% last year.

“Male Audi drivers are on top for the second year running, as voted for by female drivers. The men chose female Mini drivers as the sexiest on the road: overtaking Audi who came top last year.”
