Where the Wild Women Are: (Very) Revealing Stats about Public Sex

The findings of the LELO Global Survey have always lent some pretty interesting results (as you’ll see on our our new infographic) and we love to look at how we can use these results to help you get you out of your bedroom and most importantly, out of your routine.

Our aforementioned survey found that women are exploring the great outdoors more than ever by going public with sex. So as we enter the final days of the year why not take some tips from our sensual surveyors and pick at least three of our most adrenaline-inducing public destinations to sexplore over the next 31 days? If you’re new to putting the ‘wild’ in wilderness, fear not because LELO is here as your appointed guide.

So grab your partner, pack up and review the findings, your ‘sexcursion’ is now underway…

Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex in a Car: 73%

HOW TO DO IT: Body-generated steam won’t fog up the windows for about seven minutes, so before you get to backseat business, shut each of your coat sleeves into the top corners of each back seat door, creating two makeshift curtains. Also remember that the sun also sets earlier in winter, meaning there’s more time for you to take advantage of the ambient darkness. We also have a few other handy tips for pulling off the perfect erotic auto experience.

Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex in a Public Park: 36%

HOW TO DO IT: When it comes to public parks, size matters. The bigger, more vegetated the park, the better, but don’t rely solely on Mother Nature for cover. Bring a variety of blankets for both warmth and privacy. In an isolated or forested area, get in between the blankets in the spoon position. Even if interlopers get curious from afar, it will appear you two are innocently cuddling.

Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex at the Office: 22%

HOW TO DO IT: Visits by loved ones are common during the holiday season. If you have your own office, tell your coworkers that your partner is coming to quickly drop something off. If your office is openly laid out, best to “work late” and have your partner stop by once everyone has left for the day. Either way, note the schedule of the cleaning personnel.

Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex During Their Commute: 11%

HOW TO DO IT: Everyone’s commute is different, and each provides its own obstacles and risk factors. Whether you walk, bike, drive or train to work, you can always take a little detour for something other than coffee. The next day you commute to work, make note of hidden spaces, alleys and compartments suitable to fit two bodies, and remember: adrenaline is the new caffeine.

Percentage of Women Who’ve Had Sex on a Plane: 3%

HOW TO DO IT: Don’t expect your admission into the mile-high club to be an easy (or comfortable) one. The only sane way to pull this one off is on a long, overseas flight (perhaps on your way to a sexy getaway) after dinner when the lights go down, and everyone reclines into sleep. One-by-one, sneak to the plane’s rear bathroom and make it quick. As a precaution, bring an air sickness bag along with you, so if there’s any knocking, you can pretend that one of you is sick, and the other is just being a caring partner.

Having sex in the bedroom all the time is like eating at home all the time—you know what you’re going to get, you’ve have it a thousand times, and it does little more than fulfill a primitive, biological need. However, when you get out and taste new places, you diversify your pallet, broaden your horizons and treat yourself to an experience worth boasting about.

Now that you have everything you need to know start the season off with a bang, it’s time to start sexting your partner to get them as excited as you are! And when you take things back indoors come winter, surprise your partner with a pleasure giftset that lets you fan the flames of your newfound adventurer spirit and celebrate the completion of one epic month.

A recent LELO survey found that more and more women are ‘sexploring’ in the great outdoors – here's how you can pull it off!

6 Essential Tips For Having Sex Outdoors

If you’ve never had sex outdoors, I sincerely suggest trying it. It might not be for everyone, but it can make a vacation or even a weekend picnic in the park extra memorable. And it’s all about the memories, right? Animals do it all the time! From what I can tell about cavemen, they probably didn’t mind a romp in the woods either. And if it’s good enough for animals and cavemen, my logic is that it must be “natural”. Communing with another body while communing with nature is about as primal as you can get. And naughty. It’s certainly very, very naughty (said with a British accent). Even though the weather is getting cold right now, this is actually the perfect time to be thinking of outdoor sex—it’ll give you something nice to look forward to for spring, with plenty of time to plan romp-friendly getaways.

There is no one outdoorsy location that is better than another for sexy times. One of the hottest things you can do is have sex in a naturally occurring body of water. Don’t ask me why, but oceans and lakes are natural aphrodisiacs; Suddenly you’re Bo Derek and everything feels like you’re in a perfectly-lit romance movie (even if you do have sand up your butt). But it’s just as fun to find yourself humping behind a tree or on a rock. No matter where you get your bone on, you’ll suddenly become Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon, but an adult and not a teenager, which is so much better. Outside is simply sexy, and while you probably don’t want to be doing it in the middle or a snow drift (or maybe you do? I don’t know, I’ve never tried it), there are ways to maximize your outdoor sexing experience to get the most bang for your. bang. Behold:


Like I said, I’ve never had sex in a pile of snow. It could be invigorating for all I know. But if you’re new to having sex outside, I’d suggest waiting for a warm day. There’s already a lot to contend with in the great outdoors, you don’t want to add something like Lost-style torrential rain or whiplash winds to the mix. It doesn’t need to be warm necessarily, but be sure it’s at least calm outside before you start your sexual expedition.


Being that you’re outside, it’s likely you’re in a place that’s accessible to other people. DON’T become a registered sex offender over this. It’s not worth it. DO find a spot that’s off the beaten path, or at least go behind a bush, and preferably as far as possible from any children who might be playing in the area.


This is one of those times you’re going to have to put your fear of insects aside. If there’s something creepy crawling on your hand, let it. You’re boning. Shrieking and suddenly jumping up and down while violently brushing your body down is an instant mood killer. Be brave, and remember: sex is better than freaking out over a tiny bug.


When you’re outside, chances are the ground is going to be covered in sand/mud/dirt/crap/bugs. The best way to avoid having all these things go inside your butt hole, staining your clothes, or giving you a nasty rash (and definitely killing the mood) is to do it standing up. That way, you get to have all the benefit of sex in nature while have to touch as little actual nature as possible. It leaves significantly less of a margin for injury/bites/poisoning/dirtying, etc.


This is two-fold: The first part is knowing where you’re going to escape to if you’re busted—a getaway plan. The second part is having a condom/disposing of it in an environmentally-friendly manner or, if you’re at the raw dogging stage of your relationship, being able to clean up and not walking out of the woods with cum on your clothes/hair. The trees are shaming you.


Don’t be a little bitch about this—if you’re going to have sex outside, go for it. Don’t be precious or scared. That’s going to make it more onerous than fun. And this is meant to be fun! Get naked! Be naked outside! Love the one you’re with, honey! If you’re committing to having sex outside then you’re making a tacit commitment to throwing away your inhibitions so throw them. Throw them far, far off into the horizon. You can collect them when you’re done. They’ll be right over there next your panties.

If you’ve never had sex outdoors, I sincerely suggest trying it. It might not be for everyone, but it can make a vacation or even a weekend picnic in the park extra memorable. And it’s all about the memories, right? Animals do it all the time! From…
