Aussie's Festival Sexual Habits
A bold 25% of Australians claim that sex is an essential part of the festival experience, according to a new survey.
With the summer festival season well on its way, Lovehoney, the sexual happiness people, surveyed over 1,000 people to find out Australia's sexual behaviour at festivals.
Aussies are certainly not the prudish type, as 37% confess to having sex at festivals - and what's more, 5% have had sex with a stranger and 2% have even been in a threesome.
Festivals certainly put Aussies in an experimental mood, with 43% more likely to try new things sexually at a festival and 10% taking sex toys along to play with.
Splendour in the Grass punters prove to be the randiest festival goers, with 6% of respondents having had sex there.
The old favourite, the car, claims the top location in which to have sex at festivals (26%).
Meanwhile, Lovehoney is urging festival goers to watch their step after the survey reveals that an adventurous 11% have chosen a quiet spot in the field to get down and dirty.
After cleaning up at the ARIA Awards as Best Male Artist, electronic music producer Flume can add another prize to the poolroom, being named the summer headliner whose music is most likely to put Aussies in the mood, with 25% agreeing.
Newly renamed Nick Murphy (Chet Faker) will be sorely disappointed with a second-place score of just 15%.
Surprisingly, however, dance music (20%) came second to rock music (23%) as the best type of music to have sex to at a festival.
The risk of being caught turns out to be the leading turn-on for Aussie festival-goers, with 19% saying that puts them in the mood, while music trails behind with 15% agreeing. When it comes to turn-offs, an overwhelming 69% of Aussies feel strongly that smelly people are the biggest sexual downer. Australia's summer festival season is the only time people actually pay to sleep outside, queue for hours, not shower and go to the loo in what can only be described as a plastic coffin of doom - yet 11% maintain that they'd still have consider having sex 5 days into a showerless festival.
