Is fleeing campus sex leading to masturbation-fueled death on the roads?

In South Dakota, those long drives make the mind wonder and cars drift. Cindy Struckman-Johnson has also been wondering:

“There are people getting killed out there because they’re having sex while driving, either with themselves or with another person… If they’re getting killed, we have an obligation to understand it.”

A paper co-authored by Struckman-Johnson, recently published in the journal “Accident Analysis and Prevention,” found that 33 percent of men and 9 percent of women at USD have engaged in some sort of sexual activity while driving.

The data:

• 33 percent of men and 9 percent of women had sex while driving.

• 9 percent of men and 29 percent of women had sex while as a passenger.

• The two most common acts were oral sex (70.3 percent) and genital touching (60.4 percent).

• About 11 percent engaged in vaginal intercourse.

• Sexual activity lasted from 1 to 10 minutes for 42.7 percent of the respondents.

• About 49 percent were traveling 61 to 80 miles per hour during sex.

• The most common driving errors reported were speeding (37.8 percent), drifting into another lane (36 percent) and letting go of the steering wheel (10.8 percent).

• Fewer than 2 percent nearly had a crash, and none said they actually had a crash.

Given the furore over sex on campus, students of University of South Dakota are heading to the highway:

More than a third of those who did reported speeding, another third said they’d drifted from their lane and 11 percent said they’d let go of the steering wheel. “It’s absolutely not safe,” Struckman-Johnson said. “What to do about it, I don’t know.”

More laybys?

“One of the students wrote ‘it’s a five or six hour drive home,” she said. “What am I supposed to do?”

Hurry up with those Google cars, alrady…
