According to new research by BBA Reman, more than half (59 per cent) of those aged between 33 and 55 has got jiggy with it inside a vehicle, compared to 38 per cent of 18 to 34 year olds.
A Ford Fiesta car proved to be the most popular motor to have some sexy fun in with 29 per cent of the vote, putting it ahead of the Volkswagen Golf (27 per cent) and Vauxhall Corsa (23 per cent).
Chris Swan, Founder of BBA Reman, said: “We all remember what it’s like to be young and in love, but with very little privacy or places to be alone with a partner.
“It seems that the high number of older adults admitting to engaging in sexual activities in their cars highlights a generation gap.
“Nowadays, it is much more acceptable for younger unmarried couples to share a bed, compared to twenty or thirty years ago when they had to sneak away for some fun.”
