Sex Drives

This settles it: I’m not getting a Porsche.

The German magazine “Men’s Car” found in a survey of 2,253 motorists aged 20 to 50 published in its inaugural May issue that male BMW drivers say they have sex on average 2.2 times each week while Porsche drivers have sex 1.4 times per week.

Following BMW drivers were Audi (2.1), Volkswagen (1.9), Ford (1.7) and Mercedes (1.6). Drivers of foreign car makes were also behind BMW with Italian cars (2.0), French (1.9), Japanese (1.8), Swedish (1.6) and Korean cars (1.5) trailing after.

Among women, French car drivers were top with 2.1 times per week followed by Audi (2.0), Italian (2.0), and BMW (1.9) with Porsche again at the bottom of the scale at 1.2 times per week.

I’d be interested to see the crosstabs on this one. Are Porsche drivers older? More likely to be married?

    Or are BMW drivers just more likely to inflate their performance?

  2. Married Guy says:

    Married people have more sex than single people and the number is statistically significant not just a minor deviation. Plenty of studies confirm that.

    ahem Or did they but the Porche because they were not getting any?

    I just like to point out the obvious sometimes.

  4. Don’t crowd my gig.

  5. The statistically significant diferrent variable isn’t “which marque of German sports car are you driving?”;

    Its How old are you?

    Married? How long?

    Children?

    Income?

    etc . . .

  6. A post on this topic that doesn’t mention the Hummer is just poor.

  7. Alan S. says:

    More likely to be out motoring rather than stuck home because the Beemer’s in the shop?

  8. Lauren S. says:

    Maybe the Porshe drivers are too busy having sex to respond to this survey….
