HAMBURG - An invitation to a cosy cup of coffee is understood by Germans as a sexual proposition, a survey found.
Commissioned by a coffee-making-machine manufacturer, the Ipsos polling institute asked 1,000 adult Germans what entered their heads in the evening when someone said, "Would you like to come back to my place for a coffee?"
Sixty percent said they would anticipate something more than just sipping a hot beverage, and just under 25 percent said it was not vague: the words unambiguously meant, "Let's have sex."
There were regional differences in the pick-up line, with 45 percent of people on the Baltic coast using coffee as code for sex. On the French border, where people drink coffee at all hours, only 12 percent equated coffee with lust.
