Some of your co-workers are taking the news that having more sex makes you better at your job a little too far. They’re actually combining the two right under your nose and you probably didn’t even realise. And considering that this is how often the average Brit gets their oats, they’re doing it way more often than you think, too.

According to a survey by Yellow Octopus, as many as 1 in 11 people are having sex at work. Over 1,000 people were asked about their work/sex balance and 11% admitted they’d had sex in the office with a co-worker. A surprising 4% went so far as to say that they’d actually brought someone who didn’t work there into the building to get theirs.

Although most of the participants said these extra-curricular activities were occuring after hours, a third claimed that they had managed to find time to have sex during a work day.

But that’s not all. Of those surveyed 5% of women admitted to masturbating at work, compared to 13% of men, and of those sexed-up soloists 40% said that they’ve snuck off for some cheeky self-love more than six times, using porn to bring them to the brink.

And how many of them were caught in the act? A rather small 14%, meaning that the rest of them must have become pros at a sneaky in-office hook-up. So try not to touch the meeting room tables too much in future…
