What people do in the privacy of their homes

Gaining a Window into Our Habits

In our study we examined the habits of people behind closed blinds in an average UK town. Using official Census data, combined with other sources, we found that the average British town has a population of 4,097 people aged over 16. We then conducted our own survey of a representative group of people to find their most private activities.

What We’re Up To

The number one activity that we indulge in when on our own is binge-watching streaming services. This was chosen by (a possibly square-eyed) 79% of respondents. It is followed by walking around naked, something that an astonishing 63% of us do – and that’s the bare truth. Another interesting fact to pick up on is that 43% of people admit to picking their noses in private, while 58% talk to themselves when home alone. So, it seems that we can really be ourselves (or someone else, if we’re talking to ourselves) when we’re on our own.

When it comes to more illicit activities, more than one fifth of people admit to spying on neighbours and over half admit to watching adult material. In fact, it turns out that more people watch adult material (56%) or play video games (49%) than have an interesting love life.

How do we know about the love lives of the British public? Well, we found out over the course of our study. 46% of respondents revealed that they have adventurous love lives when in the privacy of their homes.


Do You Know Your Neighbours?

We also used our data to work out the probability of your neighbours (if you live in an average British town) being involved in certain careers. It occurs that almost one in five people have a criminal record. A similar proportion is likely to be working in show business. But barely any of us are professional footballers. So, while you have a 14% chance of living next door to an actor, it is only 0.1% likely that you will be living beside a footballer.

Relationship Status Updates

While peeking behind the blinds in our study we also discovered that in the average UK town just 28% of people are single. This means that 72% are in a relationship. However, 20% of these people are having affairs. Naughty!

Doing What You Want  

With so much going on in homes across the UK, it’s a good thing that privacy is easily available in the form of our blinds. Just make sure that when you do decide to indulge in a spot of talking to yourself or walking around naked that the blinds are actually closed.
