Survey: Your Coworkers
Want To Have Sex
You may not be hooking up with anyone at the office (what’s wrong with you?), but according to a new survey, a fair number of your coworkers are.
By ModernMan Editors
A recent survey has shed some light on what people think about office romances — and plain ol’ office sex. Turns out, most people have no problem hooking up with coworkers — or, at least, with coworkers hooking up with each other — so long as the hooking up isn’t being done by a boss and his or her subordinate. Also seen as unnecessary: Telling HR about it. Check out some of the more interesting results below.

WHAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARD SEX BETWEEN COLLEAGUES?
• Fine if handled professionally and not involving a direct reporting relationship: 52%
• Usually a bad idea: 27%
• Awesome! How else am I supposed to get to know attractive people?: 11%
• Always a bad idea: 10%
What it means: About two out of three people are generally okay with workplace romances. Just make sure you don’t drunkenly hit on the third person at the next office happy hour.
DO YOU THINK MANAGERS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE SEX WITH SUBORDINATES (DIRECT OR INDIRECT)?
• No: 64%
• Yes: 36%
What it means: Most people don’t want the places they work to mimic the porn they watch. Prudes!
