A recent story published by NYC's sexiest publication, The New York Times, claims that the time-honored tradition of New Yorkers having sex in the back of cabs is becoming yet another part of Lost New York, thanks to the rise of Uber, and its lack of anonymity. The story contains this actual sentence: "Ah, the strange erotic power of the New York taxi."
Flush with anecdotes, the Times explains that many people are hesitant to get freaky in the back of a car when the driver knows your name and phone number, and we couldn't help but wonder: wait, were people actually having sex in taxi cabs before Uber? Like... routinely? Is that actually a thing?
Well, it's time we get to the bottom (!) of this, together, anonymous poll-style:
