Forget texting, calling, eating or even applying eyeliner while driving. A new survey reveals that one in 10 American drivers have had sex behind the wheel.

What's more, 15 percent of American drivers said that they would consider getting lucky if they knew no one could see them, the Harris Interactive survey conducted for Scout GPS revealed.

The survey, which involved 1,832 American adults, shows that many drivers are still disregarding risks and engaging in dangerous activities behind the wheel, according to USA Today.

The poll found that 11 percent of the respondents admitted to "having participated in sexual activity while driving." Unsurprisingly, men were three times more likely to boast about having sex while driving, with 17 percent of men and 5 percent of women admitting to engaging in sexual activities behind the wheel.

The poll also found that people aged 35 to 44 and those aged 18 to 34 were most and second most likely to acknowledge sexual rendezvous in moving cars. 

Researchers also found that 19 percent of drivers have eaten using a fork, spoon or knife while driving, 10 percent have put on makeup, 9 percent have flirted with another driver and 4 percent have read a book.

According to MSN Autos, the survey involved samples across the entire U.S. and scaled to represent most of the country's drivers.
