OKCupid survey shows the best place to have bathroom sex in NYC

Bathroom sex—it's probably the safest form of public intercourse if you're looking to avoid an indecent exposure arrest. Sure, you might get some looks when you come out of the stall followed by your partner, but, y’know, sometimes you just can’t wait until you get home. (We’re not here to judge.)

But if, for whatever reason, you need to get it on and need a good public restroom to do so, OKCupid is here for you. The popular online dating site released its first ever Dater’s Choice Awards, collecting votes from millions of users. The multi-city dating guide includes useful resources such as “No-bro Sports Bars," “Instagram Filtered Bars," and most importantly, “Best Bathrooms for Sex." And guess who won the prestigious romp-worthy lavatory award? Lower East Side haunt Home Sweet Home!

The reason why Home Sweet Home is the “best” bathroom for bumping uglies is unknown. Perhaps it's the height of the sink fixture, or the ambient noise level. We can only hope cleanliness was taken into account. Maybe it’s the bar's taxidermy and chandelier décor, making it feel like the setting of a bad vintage porno that puts people in the mood. Or maybe Home Sweet Home’s weekly Friday night "SHAKIN' ALL OVER UNDER SIDEWAYS DOWN" 50s/60s rock and roll dance parties that inspires folks to go get their, er, rocks off.

Try it out and let us know—just be sure to lock the bathroom door, will ya?
