HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — A recent survey by Adam & Eve finds 52 percent of adults admit they've had sex in public.

Respondents, who were allowed to choose multiple answers, admit their top locations are parked cars (80 percent), the woods (55 percent), a park (44 percent), beach (42 percent), and workplace office (25 percent). Public bathrooms (22 percent), movie theater (16 percent), airplane (7 percent), church (5 percent) and taxi (2 percent) followed.

In addition, more than 600 Adam & Eve Facebook followers said they'd enjoyed sex in public.

Of those, 30 percent did not specify where, 25 percent said parked cars, 22 percent said in the woods, 8 percent chose on the beach, 6 percent chose workplace office, 5 percent said public bathroom, 3 percent said movie theater, 2 percent chose park, and less than 1 percent each said airplane, church or taxi.

Dr. Kat Van Kirk, Adam & Eve's resident sex expert, finds these numbers encouraging.

 "Sex in public can add a sense of adventure to routine lovemaking habits," Dr. Van Kirk said. "I'm happy to see so many couples keeping sex exciting, although I do encourage adults to be discreet and keep their erotic encounters far from prying eyes."

Chad Davis, Adam & Eve's director of marketing, agrees.

"While I was surprised at the high number of adults who enjoy sex in public, I am pleased that American adults are still finding the thrill in sex by trying new things," he said.

The web-based survey was conducted by an independent third-party survey company, quering more than 1,000 American adults age 18 and up.
