Over the past month there’s been an influx of ambitious slobs who have been going to your gym because of their New Year’s resolution. Well, now there will be a flood of horny people headed to the gym after they find out that people going kettleballs deep there. A new study says that 1 out of 4 people have had sex at the gym.
According to a survey of 2,000 people in England by U.K. sex shop Ann Summers, 25 percent of participants claimed to have copulated at their gym in the past 12 months. Being sore from the gym never sounded better. That’s right, one of four hot chicks on the elliptical are banging at the gym. And that also means that one of four of those old dudes who refuse to put on clothes in the sauna and expose everyone to their wrinkly raisin balls are also bumping uglies at the gym.
The study found that 45 percent of women said they used the cross trainer to attract sexual partners, while men commonly used the lat pulldown machines to garner the attention of potential mates. Talk about wiping down your equipment.
As many as 70 per cent of women admitted to fantasizing about their personal trainer during sex. And 20 percent of the women said they acted on their fantasies and had sex with their personal trainer. Not exactly the kind of protein shake I was thinking about from the gym.
What won’t shock you is that 50 percent of people said they used the gym as a place to find hookups. Some are so confident in their abilities that 10 percent of respondents said they carried a condom in their gym bag, just in case. That means 90 percent are preparing to be unprepared. The study found that 66 percent revealed that the thought of having sex at the facility fuelled their vigorous workout.
Vice decided to investigate this phenomenon and found individuals who have had sex at the gym including John, a bodybuilder from northern California:
“I hooked up [at the gym] once and it was random. I saw this girl doing squats in tight spandex. She was looking me up and down and I noticed out of the corner of my eye. That is what sparked it. We went back into the locker room because it was late at night and had a quickie. We did not say much afterwards. I went to take a shower, she did too, and we went our separate ways.”
Another anonymous gentleman who went under the name “Jake,” revealed that he had sex at the gym once and that the fear of being caught was intense. “It’s amazing how someone can just compartmentalize and focus on the pleasure in the moment so it gets done quickly without the fear of being caught ruining the moment,” Jake said.
Gotta admit, this sounds like the best workout regiment.
