Brits expose brazen bathroom behaviour in cheeky poll from Splashdirect
Bath-loving Brits bring a new meaning to a night on the tiles. A poll of UK homes, led by bath and shower company Splashdirect, reveals the racy role our bathrooms play in our romantic relationships:
- Half of Brits have indulged in frisky bathroom behaviour at home
- Almost 40% have had a steamy session in a hotel bathroom
- One in 10 have snuck off to a friend's bathroom at a party for a bit of passion
Splashdirect, the online bathroom specialists, have also identified the popularity of 'sharing baths' (i.e. freestanding baths without taps): with 68% of us saying that a freestanding bath is more romantic to share and the majority of the UK preferring a bath, over a shower or wet room, when it comes to romance:
- 53% find the bath more romantic
- 15% chose the shower
- Only 13% prefer the modern wet room
The bath/shower room has a role to play in workplace romances and naughtiness:
1 in 20 Brits admit to having a steamy session in the shower or bathroom at work. However, the mile high club has failed to take off recently, with just 2% of the UK ticking that box. However, hotel bathrooms are a firm favourite, with almost 40% (39%) of Brits admit to having had a steamy session in a hotel bathroom or shower room.
"Sharing a shower or bath is not just a great water-saver, we have discovered that Brits find it very romantic too," says Splashdirect founder Ted Charalambides.
"Freestanding baths are a stylish addition to any bathroom and also hold popularity in larger bedrooms too. Many of our freestanding baths are great for sharing as are our walk-in showers. After completing this research we have even added the keywords 'sharing baths' and 'sharing showers' to our website to reflect the popularity of steamy bathroom romance."
