Randy south Londoners have admitted their favourite items of furniture to have sex on – including coffee tables, armchairs and even chests of drawers.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a new survey has been released showing just what people get up to behind closed doors – not to their bedroom.
While a whopping 80 per cent admit to romping on the sofa, no randy Londoners admit to having ‘bumped uglies’ on a wine rack unlike other parts of the country.
While settees are the most popular place for a kinky tryst, outside beds, dining room tables across the region have also seen a fair amount of action.
Other items of furniture being used for sex games include chests of drawers and armchairs – and even low-down coffee tables.
An ironing board, piano, kitchen sink, washing machine, pool table and rocking horse were some of the other objects Londoners have had sex on.
A 'giant wooden xylophone', a train set, and even a mortuary slab have been revealed as some of the strangest pieces of furniture that couples around the country have admitted to getting frisky on.
The shocking revelations, which coincide with the release of Fifty Shades Darker, show that horny Brits everywhere are inspired to experiment more than ever, breaking down sexual taboos and making 'kinky sex' more mainstream.
And it appears couples are embracing the concept of Christian Grey’s BDSM “red room of pain”, because 18 per cent say they’ve been tied up during sex – and a further 19 per cent want to be.
Also, older couples are leading the charge out of the bedroom – because a quarter of 18 to 24-year-olds have never strayed from the bed.
Robert Walters, head of e-commerce at The Furniture Market, which commissioned the survey, said: “We were curious to discover how adventurous the British public were when it came to experimenting outside of the bedroom.
“We all fill our homes with an array of different furniture, decoration and belongings, but we were intrigued to find out if any of these products get used for other purposes than what they are originally intended for.
“We were surprised to find that the survey highlighted more obscure examples, such as wine racks and rocking horses.
“Who knew that the British public were so daring?
“We were pleased to find out that our well-designed, good quality and affordable furniture might be enjoyed in many ways, despite being created for entirely different purposes.”
