BOSTON (MainStreet) Do Americans prefer lovemaking in the living room or getting frisky in the foyer?
Property-listing site Movoto.com, which specializes in applying real research methods to offbeat housing topics, recently polled some 300 people to ask: "Where is the best place to have sex in a house?"
"We were throwing out ideas of what kind of surveys we wanted to do and we realized this was the kind of thing that you'd want to talk about if you were going to a dinner party," Movoto's Chris Kolmar says.
The site surveyed 345 Americans via Amazon's Mechanical Turk, an Amazon
Kolmar, who holds a bachelor's degree in mathematical economics, says the survey's sample group ranged in age from 18 to 69 and had a few more males and educated people than the U.S. average. (Men made up 63% of those taking the poll vs. 48.5% of all Americans, while an above-average 98% of those polled had graduated high school and 38% held at least bachelor's degrees.)
