Apparently, everyone's having WFH sex—here's how to make the most of your 'lunch break'

WFH sex, or getting busy when you're on the clock, is having a moment, so there's probably not going to be an incentive to return to the office anytime soon. 

We can't say we're surprised to hear this news, given that Lovehoney uncovered masturbating during work hours was on the rise. Now, it seems that people have decided to spice up their lunch breaks with a plus one. 

According to a new survey from TonerGiant one in eight Brits get down and dirty during the workday, and the couples most likely to participate in the off-duty activity are millennials. (And we thought Gen Z was the group in the midst of a sex boom...)

Some prefer a quick power nap while others take time to vape, but then there are those who crave some excitement. Well, guess it's hard to resist the release of oxytocin and dopamine from orgasms. Here's what to know before getting busy.

WFH sex tips you should *definitely* consider following

While we're all for breaks throughout the day, especially if home and the office are one and the same, sex might be a risky move between Zoom calls and updating Excel spreadsheets. Nevertheless, if the moment strikes, you and your partner should be prepared. Here's how to go about it. 

1. Watch the electronics

It goes without saying, but there's been an uptick in Zoom casualties since 2020, and it'd be awfully embarrassing to add sex to the list. It could even cost you a job. But if you can't resist the temptation despite the risks involved, make sure you're logged out of all apps and your computer is shut down. It's probably best to take the activities into another room away from your devices. And don't miss a meeting because of WFH sex—your boss might not know why you're offline, but it'd certainly be frowned upon.

2. Location, location, location

A recent study uncovered the best places in the house to have sex, and the bedroom didn't top the list, to our surprise. The bathroom was a fan-favorite because of the intensity couples felt and the uptick in their heartbeats while standing. But we wouldn't recommend getting in the shower if you have to be back on call in 20 minutes. 

3. Try something "quiet"

You might not necessarily want to bring that after-sex glow to the one-on-one with your manager, so if you're going to fool around while on break, keep things in check with sexperts' go-to quiet sex positions—they don't skimp on the pleasure, but they're not as...involved

"Although quiet sex can be tricky, it is a fact that quiet sex can often be much more intimate and exciting for those involved, as it becomes a secret in itself and something only you and your partner can enjoy," Charlotte Johnson, a sexpert at Mega Pleasure previously told us about getting busy in a full house. WFH sex sports a similar thrill.

4. Get assistance

If you want things to feel adventurous, but you can't miss that 2pm virtual desk-side, it might be a good idea to bring in a little help with the best sex toys for couples.

Enjoy your "lunch break"!
