Sex in the Workplace

Officesex_1_1 So we are all aware of the urban legends about consensual sexual encounters in the workplace, but how often does such conduct actually take place?

While there will never be a precise answer to that question, Time's Work in Progress blog points to a recent study by staffing company Randstad USA for some answers, at least as far as flirting and dating.  Some of the more intriguing statistics:

• 37% of working adults have flirted with a colleague

• 8% currently have a secret crush at work

• 17% of working adults have secretly dated someone from work

And what form does eventual socializing take?: "Those in the South (41%) and Midwest (35%) like socializing with co-workers at company parties and Northeasterners favor dinner (37%) or happy hour (28%)."
