LONDON, January 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Check the CCTV - eleven per cent of employees surveyed have admitted to having sex in the office, according to a recent survey by leading office design company Maris Interiors. And it's not just one-off events, seven per cent of those asked claim that this is a practice they indulge in regularly.
When asked if they would ever consider a liaison in the office, 44% of men asked said that they would - but only 27% of women thought it sounded an appealing prospect.
Of those who admitted to "relations" at work, the most popular location was the employee's own desk (38%), with other settings including the meeting room (14%), the car park (12%), toilets (8%) and the boss' desk (5%). Unsurprisingly, the majority (94%) occurred outside of normal office hours.
Human Resources partner at Maris Interiors, Claire Walker says: "For the 11 per cent of people having sex in their office, I would recommend trying not to get caught! You may well be in breach of your employment contract if you're thought to be bringing the company's reputation into disrepute. And even if your job is safe, it will make for pretty embarrassing chats around the water cooler!"
