This Survey Reveals Over 13% of Employees Get Intimate While on Zoom Meetings

The shift to work from home has necessitated a rise in work related video calls because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up keeping everyone on the same page. Since these video calls are occurring in a home environment, this has often led to some unfortunate occurrences with all things having been considered and taken into account.

The most notorious example is that of former CNN employee Jeffrey Toobin who accidentally took an NSFW recording of himself while on a Zoom meeting because he did not realize that his camera was still on. It turns out that Toobin’s behavior is not actually that outside of the norm.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Jugo recently conducted a survey which shed some light on common behaviors that people take part in when they are engaging in length Zoom meetings while working from home. It turns out that over 13% of people, or 13.2% to be precise, get intimate with each other while they are on video calls.

In spite of the fact that this is the case, the people that get intimate when the camera and microphone are off are in the minority. 68% of survey respondents admitted that they text other people during these video calls, and 28.6% go so far as to leave their desks entirely so that they can go for a walk. 25% take a healthier approach by trying to get a workout in during a meeting, and 21.9% use this opportunity to get some much needed shut-eye.

However, even though other activities were reported by a higher number of survey respondents, 5% still said that they attend these meetings in the nude, granted they only do so when they know that the camera will stay off. 21.8% eschew professional attire in favor of sweatpants, and given that it is a virtual meeting, 42.5% said that they do not end up taking a shower before they log on to attend the meeting in question.
