Sex and drinking alcohol are the most beloved of all pastimes, according to a new survey from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Stunning, we know.

The researchers found that the act of carnal knowledge finished first in all three of the survey's categories: pleasure, meaning and engagement. Still, there is hope for our inebriated and lustful society, as the study also discovered that things like meditating and caring for children ranked as some of the most enjoyable of human activities.

Interestingly, people seem to enjoy volunteer work but not work they actually get paid for. They also don't like housework, which isn't as interesting.
