A research team in Mexico led by David Soriano-Hernandez has revealed that Young men who own a car have more sex than those who don’t.
According to the researchers, having their own wheels gives young men higher self-esteem and is a status symbol women find attractive.
The findings are published in the journal Sexuality Research and Social Policy, after the researchers asked 1,000 males aged 17 to 24 about their sex lives.
Soriano-Hernandez said those with a motor typically have sex twice as often, and they double the number of their partners — but they were less likely to use a condom.
A car also makes it easier to get to places for sex — and can be used for bonking in public places. The study leader added:
“It can act as a sexual enhancer in emerging adulthood.
“Women still demonstrate a clear preference for men that possess or show the potential to acquire material resources.
“In Western culture material resources can be measured in terms of bank accounts, homes and cars.”
“It is not unusual for cars to have a type of erotic effect on their owners and spectators.
“Expressions such as ‘hot’, ‘sexy’, and ‘exciting’ are often used to describe automobiles.”
