'Powerful intimate relationship with a co-worker'

From a recent BBC News article called Sex at work: weapon or repression?:

Sex at work: weapon or repression?
The first par: "Research... shows that 60% of all workers have had a powerful intimate relationship with a co-worker."

The fourth par: "[Kakabadse] realises that it might be hard to believe that six out of 10 colleagues are involved in an intimate relationship"

There's a world of difference between "have had" and "are involved in"!

(I'm also not keen on swapping between "60%" and "six out of 10", but that's a different issue...)

The phrase "six out of 10 colleagues are involved in an intimate relationship" suggest that they are all involved in the same relationship. Nice to know swinging is still popular in the suburbs.

At work or outside work, it is always the same thing: men are looking for sex, women are looking for romance.
