BMW Drivers Get Most Sex?
Mon May 3, 9:04 AM ET Add Oddly Enough - Reuters to My Yahoo!


BERLIN (Reuters) - BMW drivers have more sex than owners of any other cars and are much more active than Porsche drivers, a new German car magazine has found.


The German magazine "Men's Car" found in a survey of 2,253 motorists aged 20 to 50 published in its inaugural May issue that male BMW drivers say they have sex on average 2.2 times each week while Porsche drivers have sex 1.4 times per week.


Following BMW drivers were Audi (2.1), Volkswagen (1.9), Ford (1.7) and Mercedes (1.6). Drivers of foreign car makes were also behind BMW with Italian cars (2.0), French (1.9), Japanese (1.8), Swedish (1.6) and Korean cars (1.5) trailing after.


Among women, French car drivers were top with 2.1 times per week followed by Audi (2.0), Italian (2.0), and BMW (1.9) with Porsche again at the bottom of the scale at 1.2 times per week.

I believe elise owners would be at the bottom of the list, the contortions to allow the act to take place would probably be permanently disabling:D

They didn't say IN the cars. I for one am going to use it for all its qualities.... if getting beautiful ladies is one of em... even better!

If a "beautiful lady" is able to be had because of what type of car you're driving, she's probably not worth giving the time of day. Also, using a car to pick up women is pretty pathetic, IMO.

May as well just go buy a prostitute, as you'd have basically paid $50k for however many women you pick up anyway.

because the current 996s are so ugly, women don't like them. As you have seen from the spy pics. Porsche has taken this embarrassing fact to heart and designed the 997 to look more like the 993s. rotfl

When chics see our Elise - hands down, we will be at the top of the list. I'm single so it cool! rotfl

That would be the average. Trust me, it all evens out later in life.

What about picking up guys with it? Is that OK? :D

It will be my first test of any new guy I meet. If he doesnt know what a lotus is, then he's not dating material anyway. I certainly will not be impressed by some silly guy coming up to me and saying nice car, but not knowing a thing about it! But if he does know, then we have something to talk about :D:cool:

A little off topic but I will bite. :D
It's what you call an ice breaker. Just like some cheesy line that makes her laugh, or wearing nice clothes to look good.
I have a few gorgeous friends in Florida and they are really cool, but they loved bikes and would ask for rides all the time.

Besides if she appreciates the beauty in my car so much the better I say that speaks to her personality if she likes the Elise :clap:
Does that mean that if I want to talk to a woman that I don't know because she is beautiful then I am not worth being giving the time to day?

And we all know prositutes are ugly!

Sure, but it might be hard to do...

Most guys who see women driving cars like that assume that they have rich 80 year old "husbands" to go home to (or at least until those husbands die and are replaced by the next one - after the woman gets her money of course) :p

That said, if I wasn't getting an Elise and I knew a girl who was single and had one... I'd date her :D

Sadly, people do have preconceived ideas about women driving nice cars. It's that overrated stereotype that women are not successful unless they marry successful men. I was hoping for a bit of both :D

Sadly, in the area where I live, that preconceived idea is the truth ;)

I have given more thought to what I said before and I'd like to say that if a woman were to show interest in you after seeing your Elise because of shared interests rather than her wanting your money, that would be ok, though unfortunately I don't think there are too many women like Lillie and Jen out there ;)

"David, the operative words are "my GIRLFRIEND(not wife ) and I"



A lot of truth to that:D


If you think about it, probably a higher % of Swedish car owners are married than BMW and Porsche owners - therefore the explanation of the lower frequency of sex in that group...
