Here Are the Rooms Americans Like to Have Sex In

First place: The bedroom
Percent of respondents who favor it:

Perhaps not surprisingly, more than half of poll respondents picked the bedroom as their favorite place for romance -- a disappointment to Kolmar, who personally favors the living room.

"I was expecting more-ridiculous answers like: 'I like to have sex outside while upside-down,' but we got a lot of 'regular' answers instead," he says. "The results went against all of my preconceptions."

In fact, the bedroom ranked as the No. 1 choice for sex regardless of survey participants' ages, genders or educational achievement.

Slightly more males (52%) than females (49%) did pick the bedroom, but Kolmar doesn't consider the difference statistically significant.

But he does see some significance in the fact that just 38% of respondents with graduate degrees favor the bedroom -- the smallest showing of any demographic group surveyed.

Kolmar attributes the difference to the fact that highly educated people (at least the ones he knows) tend to be more liberal and non-conformist.

"I have a bunch of friends who are getting Ph.D.s and they're definitely a little more eccentric than usual," he says. "So, I can definitely see them not sticking to the norms of society when it comes to sex."

Kolmar speculates that many of the rest of us prefer the bedroom for reasons of privacy and comfort, something many poll participants indicated in their survey responses.

One 24-year-old female specified that she liked having sex "on a bed, behind a closed and locked door," while a 26-year-old male said he favored lovemaking in "a bedroom on a big comfortable bed."

That said, plenty of bedroom backers still manage to get down and dirty.

For instance, one 42-year-old woman told Movoto that her favorite spot for sex is "tied to the bed," while a 23-year-old female noted that she prefers getting naughty on "a roommate you hate's bed."
