Everyone gets frustrated during their work day at some point – it’s just the nature of having to be at a place that you don’t really want to for eight hours a day, five days a week. This frustration can quickly turn into sexual frustration and unfortunately there’s not a lot you can do about that unless you’re shagging one of your workmates and there’s an empty stationary cupboard on offer.

Anyway, it turns out that the solution to overcome this sexual frustration for a significant number of men is to simply rub one out in the work toilets. Whatever makes the day go quicker, I guess.
This was discovered in a new survey by bathroom brand Sanctuary Bathrooms, which asked 1500 people in the UK about their toilet habits at home and in the workplace. One of the most interesting findings was that 1 in 7 men have masturbated at work. The Office of National Statistics says there are 32 million men in the workforce, meaning that if the statistics are accurate, over 4.6 million guys have indulged in self-love while on the job. Cheeky.
With regards to the different regions around the country, the results showed that Cardiff men are the most likely to wank at work (36%) and Belfast guys are the least likely (3%). Meanwhile, having sex in the office was also surprisingly less common than masturbation, with the results showing that Londoners have the most sex in the work toilet (7%). I guess people can’t be bothered with the risk of it – much easier to just go and bash one out and then go about your day feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Although these statistics might come as a shock to some people, many health experts are arguing that workplace masturbation is actually very good for you and some are even calling on bosses to allow for wank breaks. It certainly beats the bog-standard coffee and tea break, I’m sure you’ll all agree.
