In February 2015, Autostraddle launched The Ultimate Lesbian Sex Survey, open to all “lady-types who sleep with lady-types.” We garnered over 8,566 complete responses (89% of which were from people between the ages of 18 and 36) and now we’re sharing the results with you, bit by bit. Previously: How Often Do Queer Women Have Sex?, 100 Gayest Places You’ve Had Sex, The Masturbation Habits of Queer Women, 50 Really Fascinating Things You Wanted Us To Know About How You Have Sex, 26 Bits of Solid Sex Advice, 41 Feelings You Have About Scissoring, Here Are Your Very Queer Underwear-Wearing Habits and When It Comes To Orgasms, Lesbians Are Nailing It. Today we’re talking about when and where you have sex!
Earlier this month, I told you that I’d been putting together a listling of “the weirdest places you’ve had sex” and compiling numbers about where you’ve had sex for a post devoted to that topic when I began to notice another listling opportunity was right there for the taking- The 100 Gayest Places You’ve Had Sex! So I wrote that list. It was glorious. And now it’s time for that original list I told you I was working on to have its time in the sun. First, your topical infographic:
Now for the list! We asked you “what is the weirdest place you’ve had sex?” and nearly 7,000 of you gave us the details on your experiences in dressing rooms, bathrooms, parking lots and wooded areas all over the universe! Here are some of the most ambitious stories you shared with us.

77. My girlfriend years ago was a bridge operator in Portland Oregon. We had sex on pretty much each bridge, inside of the booth where the buttons and levers are. Now they are all touch screen. I still smile when I go over bridges.
