Becoming a member of the Mile High Club is one of those elusive things that’s better in theory than in practice. You’re having sex 35,000 feet in the sky. That’s kind of hot, I’ll give you that. But practical? Not in the slightest.

For starters, there’s barely enough room to fit my own burly ass in the bathroom, let alone another entire person who I’m then supposed to penetrate. Second, people poo in there and I’ve never once considered a stranger’s bowel movement or my own an aphrodisiac. If a third reason is needed, it’s the unceasing interruptions from hurried passengers who need to void their bowels on the plane’s limited bathrooms.

Thanks to these reasons and more, I’ve never had the desire to have sex on a plane. But I will admit I have had sex in an airport because waiting for flights are long and tedious AF. I mean, I can only play solitaire on my iPad for so long.

According to research from JetCost.com of almost 5,000 adult flyers who had flown at least once in the past few years, more of us prefer pre-flight sex over mid-flight.

In fact, despite the trophy-like achievement that comes from one’s admission to the Mile High Club, only eight percent have had sex on an airplane whereas one in 10 have done the deed in an airport.

It’s not a huge difference obviously, but it’s certainly worth noting. You rarely hear people speak of airport sex, yet sex on an airplane is an item on every man’s bucket list.

Of the people who have done it on a plane, 87 percent said they did the deed with their travel companion, while five percent have been extra naughty and had sex with a complete stranger.

As you might expect, most frisky travellers got in on in the bathroom (42 percent), followed somehow, some way, by storage cupboards (28 percent). Coming in third were those who hid their exploits “under a coat” (14 percent).

Researchers were surprised to discover that only 12 percent used the VIP lounge to engage in sexual activity, especially considering these rooms are often private–or at least more private than the discretion a coat could provide.

Almost two in 10 couples who’ve engaged in airport sex have been caught by staff, which is interesting considering this different study, also by JetCost, found that 21 percent of flight staff have had sex with a colleague and 15 percent have done so with a passenger.

According to Travel & Leisure, who actually asked an anonymous airline crew for tips on how to do the deed without getting caught, your best bet is to opt for “long-haul flights” as they’re often overnight and offer the discretion of darkness. One source even suggests you use the handicap bathroom because there’s more room to move around, while another one says under-the-blanket is the way to go.

But all of these sound super risky and getting caught would be terribly embarrassing and not to mention obvious to everyone you’re sharing the flight with. So maybe instead of risking it all–getting booted off a flight, banned from an airline, or a near-lethal leg cramp–you should instead relieve all that sexual tension while you wait those three, four painful hours for your flight.
