Berlin, 12 May 2014 - The online dating site ELITESINGLES
recently polled 115 singles in Australia and New Zealand about their sexual experiences at work, revealing New
Zealanders to be considerably more sensible than their Australian counterparts.
While 38% of Australians admitted to having sex at the office, the same was true of just 15% of New Zealanders in the

admitted to making this a reality. The storage room is perhaps the place which most fulfills the stereotype: 35% of men
