A new survey finds that seven in 10 adults typically have sex on Christmas Day — even if they’ve traveled home for family festivities.
Nearly half (44 percent) of the 2,000 adults who took part in the “holiday hanky-panky” survey, which was commissioned by EdenFantasys, say they even have a Christmas Day romp penciled in on the calendar.
“According to the National Center for Health Statistics, months August and September have the most births each year,” says Fred Petrenko of EdenFantasys in a statement. “This corresponds perfectly with our findings of Americans being quite frisky during the holidays. We all love winter cuddles!”
Just when you thought that spending the holidays at your parents’ or in-laws’ home would ruin the mood, the survey found it’s not stopping everyone from finding somewhere to get it on. In fact, 47 percent of respondents admit they’ve had sex in their childhood bedroom while visiting their folks. Similarly, 39 percent have gotten down and dirty in their partner’s childhood bedroom in a visit to their family.
EdenFantasys provided a list of the top 10 holiday songs that people would play while making love — in case you’re getting some ideas:
Jingle Bells (32 percent)
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (29 percent)
Jingle Bell Rock (26 percent)
Baby, it’s cold outside (26 percent)
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree (24 percent)
Santa Claus is coming to town (22 percent)
Santa Baby (22 percent)
White Christmas (21 percent)
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow (21 percent)
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas (18 percent)
