Frisky Holidays

November 29, 2018

As the song goes, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” -- and a new survey might bear that out: Nearly half of all Americans cop to being friskier during the holidays than at any other time during the year.

According to a survey, 70% of the 2,000 Americans polled say they have sex on Christmas Day.

The survey, called “Holiday Hanky Panky,” conducted by the adult retailer EdenFantasys, says being stuck with family isn’t even a damper for that yuletide yearning: 47% admit they’ve had sex in their old childhood bedroom while visiting their family with a partner; 39% have done so in a partner’s childhood bedroom while visiting their family.

“According to the National Center for Health Statistics, months August and September have the most births each year,” said Fred Petrenko of EdenFantasys. “This corresponds perfectly with our findings of Americans being quite frisky during the holidays. We all love winter cuddles!”

Thirty-eight percent of Americans say holiday shopping is a turn on -- 32% say online shopping works, too.
