Some 60% of sexually active singles will be hooking up during the holiday season, according to a study released by prophylactic giant, Trojan. It’s hard not to take the release of this new research seriously considering the source.
The data was based on 1,000 responses from singles between the ages of 18 and 24 having sex on a regular basis. Of those polled, two out of five plan to squeeze in a hookup with someone they don’t know while one-third plan on reaching out to an ex for sex during the holidays while visiting family back home.
This means that things are going to get hot in the surroundings of Dawson’s Creek posters and soccer trophies. We’ve all been there, but this next bit of feedback is a little odd. A whopping 34% of those surveyed would not be thwarted from having sex while the whole family is over for grandma’s strudel and carols.
So, where are they finding these hookups? Thanks to technology, 73% will text or message them and 50% are using a dating app like Tinder.
However, what isn’t odd is what got these singles in the mood—watching romantic movies while curled up by a warm fire. If you need some inspiration, here is a list of 8 Netflix and Chill movies.
Thankfully, 80% of respondents also claimed that they will be practicing safe sex or at least see the value in using one.
