Anyone who’s an aviation enthusiast has likely contemplated joining the Mile High Club. Similarly, I would have said that most folks who have traveled through the typical European airport wouldn’t think it’s an ideal place to have sex.
Boy, was I wrong.
That may not sound like a high number. But, think of an average single-aisle plane like a 738 that might carry 150 passengers. I highly doubt 15 of them have had sex on an airplane. Thus, at least in Britain, sex in the airport seems to be more popular to me than the Mile High Club.
They also polled 1,000 Europeans to see which other nationalities were most likely to sneak into a toilet or closet in an airport for a tryst:
The results showed that Italians (17 per cent) are the most amorous when it comes to sexual encounters in airports, followed by the Spanish (14 per cent). Eight per cent from Germany gave in to their desires whilst only three percent of the French did the same.
Where it gets a bit beyond the pale for me is that 76% reported doing the deed in a toilet (public restroom). I’ve been to my fair share of European airports. Maybe it’s just me, but I haven’t visited too many public restrooms that achieve the standard of cleanliness and fragrance that would warrant thinking they were a good location for a few moments of hanky panky.
But, hey, maybe I’m just a prude…..
