Ever hooked up at a concert? There’s a study into that sort of thing.

Statistically speaking, a certain number of people you see at a concert will hook up at some point of the evening. But how many? A company called Clickit Ticket decided to find out.

First, let’s define “hooking up” for the purposes of this study. It can mean anything from simple kissing to hardcore schtupping. Stretching, I know, but it beats going home with nothing, right?

The survey found that 16% claimed to have hooked up at a concert in this fashion. But then check out this graph. Apparently 6% of respondents had full-on sex while at the show. (Where? I don’t event wanna…)

And while they were on the subject, the surveyors asked which performers fans would most like to have their way with. It resulted in this word cloud.

Adam Levine. Figures.
