Sam: Santa Baby

I don’t really do stuff from PRs on TT, but sextoys.co.uk, who are our mates, just brought out some great Christmas figures that are close to my heart.

Basically it backs up my opinion that the Christmas office party is one of the best opportunities to pull in the year – it’s pretty much the only time at work that a bit of naughtiness is actually expected. Apparently 7 out of 10 people they polled will use the Christmas party to try and pull a colleague and 1 in 3 don’t even to bother to go home and just use the photo copier or their bosses desk for a shag. 1 in 10 actually claim that they got a promotion as a result of their Christmas party antics.

Work is actually one of the best place to meet someone – in the US 40% of couples meet a either university or through work. The trouble is with HR breathing down everyone’s necks, actually getting something happening at work is quite tricky – usually requiring a concerted effort to actually get them out of the office. The Christmas party is the one time of the year where you can make a pass and probably get away with it. So if you still have your office Yule celebrations to come, go on, why not make a move on that colleague you’ve had your eye on, if your really lucky you might even get a pay rise to boot.
