ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history of sexual activity while aboard an aircraft, an act commonly referred to as the "Mile High Club." Information is provided on a 2005 survey by condom manufacturer Durex which found that two percent of respondents had sex on an airplane while a 2011 poll by condom manufacturer Trojan reported that 33 percent of American men desired to commit such an act. The article goes on to discuss how romance and intimacy have been used in the marketing of luxury airlines.
