Proving once again what a great PR device surveys are, BMW is getting international media coverage for a Men’s Car Magazine survey that shows BMW owners have more sex than owners of any other cars.
The May issue of Men’s Car (which doesn’t appear to have a Web site) surveyed 2,253 drivers aged 20 to 50 and found that male BMW drivers have sex an average of 2.2 times a week, while Porsche drivers reported they had sex an average of 1.4 times a week.
Excuse me, but sex 2.2 times a week doesn’t seem very sexually active to me, especially if some of the respondents were in their 20s and 30s. But of course survey takers are a self-selected bunch. The really sexually active drivers are probably way too busy with their paramours to fill out surveys.
Following male BMW drivers were Audi (2.1), Volkswagen (1.9), Ford (1.7) and Mercedes (1.6.) Among women, French car drivers were top with 2.1 times per week followed by Audi (2.0), Italian (2.0), and BMW (1.9) with Porsche again at the bottom of the scale at 1.2 times per week.
