You do you, we guess?

Welp, looks like there's another benefit to going to the gym. Nearly 25 percent of British gym-goers have had sex at their place of fitness, according to a recent survey. 

More than half of those surveyed said they've used the gym as a place to hook up, while 10 percent said they stash a condom in their gym bag. 

The online survey of 2,000 people was conducted by sex shop Ann Summers -- not exactly a perfect method of data collection. Still, an eyebrow-raising 20 percent of responders have done the deed with their personal trainers. Even if they never consummated, 70 percent of women admitted to fantasizing about their personal trainers while having sex.  

This news is a bit unsettling, considering the petri dish that is the gym, where staph, E. coli, candida and other bacteria are prevalent. Not exactly sexy. 

Of course, exercise increases a person's blood flow, which can put them more in the mood. Sweating, which we are wont to do at the gym, also increases the release of pheromones, the chemical that attracts potential partners through scent. 

Do what you do, people.
