A Ridiculous Number Of People Are Having Sex At The Gym

Welp, looks like there’s another benefit to going to the gym. Nearly 25 percent of British gym-goers have had sex at their place of fitness, according to a recent survey. 

More than half of those surveyed said they’ve used the gym as a place to hook up, while 10 percent said they stash a condom in their gym bag. 

The online survey of 2,000 people was conducted by sex shop Ann Summers — not exactly a perfect method of data collection. Still, an eyebrow-raising 20 percent of responders have done the deed with their personal trainers. Even if they never consummated, 70 percent of women admitted to fantasizing about their personal trainers while having sex.  

This news is a bit unsettling, considering the petri dish that is the gym, where staph, E. coli, candida and other bacteria are prevalent. Not exactly sexy. 

Of course, exercise increases a person’s blood flow, which can put them more in the mood. Sweating, which we are wont to do at the gym, also increases the release of pheromones, the chemical that attracts potential partners through scent. 

Do what you do, people.

Are There Specific Things That All Queer Women Do In Bed?
Lesbian sex isn’t just about scissoring, strap-ons, or eating pussy. There are an infinite number of ways that queer women have sex and an infinite number ways that queer women define sex. In fact, “sex” can mean something different from one woman to another. –Alex Berg

Do Lesbian Couples Fuck?
Too many porn films seem to have given the people the idea what we do little more than brush each others hair and cuddle. But queer womenfuck. We have the hot, sweaty, nasty, delicious sex that has nothing to do with billowing curtains and satin sheets. We make love too. But theres nothing inherently girly about lesbian sex except for the fact that were both girls. — Jenny Block

Don’t You Miss The Penis?
Not even a little. Wedont need a penis involved in order to have an orgasm. In fact, some queer womendont need penetration at all. Thats just a perk. Fingers are far more agile than a penis and there are a zilliontoys out there to help the cause. So we do just fine without it, thank you. — Jenny Block

Is One Of You The "Guy" In Bed?
No. No. A thousand times no. Penetration is not the key to female orgasm. Its a component. Lesbian sex isnt an imitation of straight sex, which is a very goodthing because studies show lesbians have more orgasms. Why? Because weknow the equipment and we know what to do with it and there are no preconceived notions about what sex looks like. Thats what makes lesbian sex so stellar –and what I wish my straight friends could enjoy too. — Jenny Block

Is One Of You Always The Aggressor In Bed?
Not necessarily. Every relationship and every rendezvous is different –just like with straight people. The kind of lesbian sex I enjoy the most is the kind I like to call “switch play.” We switch roles depending on our moods and desires.– Jenny Block

Theres No Way Queer Women Like Giving Blow Jobs, Right?
Not all queer women want to have sex with men, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to give or receive blow jobs. Strap-ons can lend themselves to exciting power exchanges between women, and can be empowering because they allow us to take ownership over heterosexual or gay sex acts.– Alex Berg

Do Queer Women Have Threesomes?
Generally when you hear the word ‘threesome’, you rarely picture it involving three women. Lesbians have a bad rep for being super jealous and emotional wrecks, but some of us actually enjoy switching things up. No “lesbian bed death” in this house. — Arielle Scarcella

Lesbian Sex Is Inherently Safe Sex, Right?
STD rates are loweramong queer women, however, that doesn’t mean we’re completely free from risk. There are many ways to have safer lesbian sex, including latex barriers like dental dams for oral sex and gloves for fingering and fisting. And, don’t forget to boil that dildo between uses! (Or put a condom on it if you are using it on multiple partners at once.) — Alex Berg

Do Queer Women Like Ass Play?

Do Queer Women Ever Just Want To Get Laid?
There may be some truth to the age-old Uhaul joke about queer women, but like queermen and straight people, sometimes we just want to get laid. Lesbian sex can be just that: Sex, without feelings, and because it feels good. — Alex Berg
