How far would a man travel for sex?

  • Next door?
  • An hour in the car?
  • Get on a plane to a different country?

Some men are really willing to put the effort in for sex!

After surveying 544 males from our website, Facebook fan page and Twitter followers we can now share with you who far they would travel for sex. We asked the question:

How far would you travel to get laid by a sexy woman from

The survey question was a definite shag (sex), not just a date. A high percentage of men were only willing to travel between 10 and 50 miles. In the UK 33% of men would only be willing to travel 10 miles and according to the UK Census this is about the same as the average distance people commute to work. Therefore, 1 in 3 men would put as much effort going to work as they would for some hot bedroom action! What does this tell you about UK men? Are they very focused on work? Do they like work more than sex?

Remember The Proclaimers?

In August 1988, long before online dating a Scottish duo of identical twin brothers wrote a song, I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles). In the song they proclaim (pun intended) they would walk 500 miles and 500 more for the girl. 29 years later 1 in 20 UK men would actually travel 1000 miles for the girl.

As the distance travelled increases the number of men willing to travel decreases as you would except, especially when you reach 1000 miles. However, globally there is an increase when the distance becomes sufficient that the mode of transport would likely become a train.

Globally, 6.1% of men would travel more than 1000 miles which really becomes international travel. Factor in flight tickets, hotels, shuttle transfers and the cost of the date this becomes a serious commitment.
