This one comes with a demister

You like sex. You work in marketing, so that’s a given. But where do you like to do it? The sex, that is.

If you’re anything like the women in a recent survey by carmaker Toyota, you like nothing better than a bunk up in the back of a motor.

A whopping 68 per cent of women surveyed said they had got “jiggy with it” on four wheels. Or three if they were with Del Boy Trotter.

Intriguingly, several vital pieces of information were left out. Front or back seat? Engine left running to keep the radiator warm or off so as not to attract attention? Was the car in a showroom at the time?

Interestingly, in a separate development Honda says it is trying to recruit more women as salespeople. Judging from this survey, their sales techniques should be an eye-opener.
