A new study in the UK confirmed that 14% or 7.4 million people have masturbated during work hours.
It comes as no surprise since working from home has presented us with some previously unimaginable opportunities.
The survey, conducted by Chemist4U, interviewed 2000 people. Out of them, 14% admitted they enjoyed self-pleasure during work hours.
Over a fifth of men masturbated during work hours, making it a staggering 22%. Regarding women, only 7% said they enjoyed the benefits of self-gratification.
When it comes to watching adult entertainment, 18% of workers admitted they watched porn during work hours.
Londoners made it to the top of the list of workers who masturbate when they should be working. 16% who work in the capital have admitted to doing the deed.
The survey also found that Brits earning between £35,001 and £45,000 are most likely to masturbate during office hours. They made 24% of all who indulged in some solo sessions.
Those who earn between £15,0001 and £25,000 made 18%.
Regarding ages, those between 25 to 34 made up 27% of those who masturbated, while those between 35 and 44 years old made up 18%. The group between 45 and 54 made 15 percent.
Interestingly enough, there are some claims that self-pleasuring while working promotes productivity.
Mark Sergeant, a psychology lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, told Metro that masturbation could improve focus.
Dr. Cliff Arnall, psychologist, and life coach, believes workplaces should implement a "masturbating policy" to boost the company's morale.
"I would expect a masturbation policy to result in more focus, less aggression, higher productivity, and more smiling."
"Certainly, taking a masturbation break for boredom or an escape would increase work focus."
There are some rules, as Dr. Arnall pointed out. You should not fantasize about your coworkers:
"Introducing any form of sexual behavior to a workplace could be seen as a slippery slope that makes people think that other forms of sexual behavior, such as those linked to harassment, are more acceptable."
