NEW YORK, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate National Orgasm Day today, Durex has released new findings from a survey that explores where people fantasize about having orgasms and where they actually have them. The results suggest that Americans are far kinkier in their minds than in reality, but not entirely as tame as you might think. According to the survey data, 39 percent of those surveyed said they fantasize about having an orgasm on the beach, while 30 percent fantasize about it happening in the movie theater1. The data also revealed insights into more risque behavior, with 28 percent of those surveyed dreaming of an orgasm in the elevator, but only a mere 4 percent having been brave enough to do it.
The survey from Durex, the number one condom brand worldwide, discovered that some of the best sex can be found at home. Data from the survey found that people were very willing to "sexplore" in the comforts of their own home, with 35 percent admitting to having orgasms in the kitchen and 54 percent choosing to steam up the shower in a more pleasurable way. However, the greatest findings were in the apparent wild sides just itching to come out, which Durex hopes will be achieved on National Orgasm Day. Some of the most unique places that people surveyed admitted to fantasizing about having an orgasm included 28 percent who want to achieve an orgasm in the office, 22 percent who'd like to climax in a fitting room, and 15 percent who prefer the silent approach in the library.
"The results highlight how people desire to go that bit further but have not had the confidence to do so or tell their partner. Couples who are up to the challenge will see a positive impact on their sex life," said Dr. Laura Berman, Durex's resident sexpert. "Sharing more with your partner, especially your fantasies, leads to greater sex. The more connected you feel, the more likely you are to step it up a gear by trying new things in and out of the bedroom, which will help strengthen your relationship."
Some other key stats from the survey include:
- 32 percent fantasize about having an orgasm on a plane, but only 5 percent admit to being a part of the Mile High Club.
- Only 23 percent fantasized about having an orgasm in a car, but 36 percent found themselves in that situation anyway.
- 20 percent fantasized about having an orgasm on a roof or balcony, with only 5 percent actually achieving that feat.
- 16 percent fantasize about having an orgasm in the back of a cab.
- 10 percent wished they could have an orgasm on the subway, but only 2 percent have ever "reached their destination."
- 7 percent daydream about having an orgasm in a church. Hallelujah!
- 3 percent have had an orgasm in a cemetery and 8 percent have fantasized about doing so.
"We wanted to have some fun to mark National Orgasm Day while inspiring couples to have open yet intimate conversations to see where it takes them," said Aurore Trepo, marketing director, Durex USA. "The research also found 93 percent of those surveyed have more intense orgasms with a trusted partner, reinforcing that there is no reason to hold back when asking for what you want, especially on a holiday such as this!"
Encouraging couples to get closer to go further builds on Durex's mission to inspire couples to achieve the fulfilling sex life they deserve, to improve the sexual health and happiness of couples all over the world.
