    Just recently it came to light (pun intended) that one in 11 people are having sex at work, with 11% of of those who took part in the survey carried out by Yellow Octopus admitting that they have sex with a co-worker.

    Fear not though, if you’re not having sex at work then there’s a high chance you’re attending to business yourself as 39% of people have admitted to masturbating in the work place.

    So given the above it makes sense that a lot of people use their work devices to seek inspiration for a bit self loving whilst on the clock, a staggering 1.5 million Brits to be exact.

    Yep according to new research conducted by mobile phone insure Insurance2go, 65% of us use our work smartphones, tablets or laptops for pornographic purposes.

    What’s more, 1.3 million of us also use of work phones to send sext messages and a further 850,000 Brits take, store and send nude photos on work devices.

    As well as using our work phones for self-pleasure, a shocking 2.3 million people have admitted to use their work devices in order to cheat on their partners.

    Of those 2.3 million, the most unfaithful workers were based in Scotland – with one in 10 Glaswegians admitted to using their work phone to send explicit texts.
