11 Crazy Places To Have Sex In Public, According To Bustle Readers Who Have Been There, Done That

Anyone can have sex in a bed ... but in a canoe or on a rooftop? Just like with real estate, it's all about, "Location, location, location." And, according to Bustle readers who shared their strangest and best public sex locations, the same mantra applies. Some people have sex every day—and the results are nothing but positive. Others, less frequently. Still others like to spice things up, 50 Shades of Grey style. But, no matter how and how often it's done, it's all about where.

Some of you may have heard about this clip from The Newlywed Game back in 1977, when Bob Eubanks asked female contestants, "Girls, tell me where, specifically, is the weirdest place that you personally, girls, have ever gotten the urge to make whoopie?" One woman's answer was bleeped and, in today's Internet age, has resurfaced. (I don't want to spoil it for you, so you'll just have to watch it for yourself.)

A Cosmo article about top places to have sex cites readers' getting-it-on locations varying from the kitchen table to the park. And, in this AskMen piece about the best places for sex, a motel or hotel room is recommended, as well as the front row (!) of a movie theater. I must say, I think Bustle readers win as far as creativity goes in choosing a sex location.

1. In a Canoe on the water -"Sadie," 24, Free Your V )

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Definitely not. We nearly capsized about five times, and the hard wooden ribs of the canoe really dug into my back. Plus: the bugs!

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

It was more funny than thrilling—trying to keep the canoe from tipping over lead to some interesting positions.

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

Try it once if you're a frequent camper: you'll never look at the canoe the same way again!

2. An apartment stairwell (outside). -Marci, 22

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Yes. 1000 percent. When we did it, it was about two in the morning, so we knew we probably wouldn't get caught (it was a quiet, residential area in California). But, the thrill we got was amazing—the fear of getting caught!

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

Thrilling? Very. We have repeated it in other areas, more crowded ones, and have yet to get caught. Again, that's the thrill.

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

For sure. As much as possible. ;)

3. A computer lab bathroom counter at my college in the Midwest -Tim, 39

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Yeah.

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

It was a 24-hour computer lab, but still busy all day and night. Being in the bathroom was more secluded than by the computers. Still, someone could have walked in (we were in the women's room), but that's the adrenaline rush.

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

I'd tell college kids to have sex everywhere, all the time. When you get older, I'm almost in my forties, it changes. My wife and I still like to get adventurous sometimes, but nothing like when we were young. (Yes, she was the computer lab bathroom girl!)

4. An outdoor hammock -"Doug," 27, Free Your V )

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

If both people are fairly average-sized, it is quite fun. The hammock envelopes you and forces you to remain very close—it is definitely intimate. Plus, the rocking motion of the hammock makes things interesting.

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

As long as you don't move around too much and risk falling out, it is thrilling!IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

Absolutely. It is more of a novelty, but it's worth the risk.

5. The roof of my grandmother’s house -Alyson, then 17

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Yes.

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?It was thrilling and a little scary.IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?I would encourage others, but I was young at the time and liked the idea that the neighbors might see. It was a roof over the garage so it wasn’t that high up, but there was always a chance someone would see. My boyfriend and I did it there a few times.

6. The backseat of my boyfriend's Jaguar at a wedding (during the reception). -Jackie, 34

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

I'd recommend a spacious car, yes. Some of my friends have tried—tried—in smaller cars, but were pretty unsuccessful.

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

Yesssssss, thrilling. My date and I just left the reception, said we had to get something from the car or were taking a walk, I don't remember. Next thing we know, it's a half-hour later and we go back to our table. Another couple guessed what we'd been doing. We denied it. But then I saw my reflection in a plate-—and I totally had sex hair! Ah, well!

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

I'd say as much as possible, but there are better, more unique places to have sex that are more comfortable than a car. Yet, there's something so juvenile and freeing about it, too. I think everyone should have car sex at least once, but then expand your horizons!

7. The waterfall at a state park -Spencer, 39

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Yeah... but be careful who's around. My girlfriend and I were with my family, like 12 of us, and swam off to these faraway waterfalls. NO ONE was around. But, once we started making out and having sex, she saw a family swimming towards us. We don't know what they saw, but we swam out of there so fast...

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

Hell, ya. (And I wouldn't have minded parents seeing, but kids? No thanks.)

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

Be creative. If you think about it, sex can happen anywhere, but most people (friends, people I know) just use the standard locations. They'll think doing it in the bathroom or tub is exotic, but they don't know what they're missing. Oh, and watch for families in public!

8. Airplane (& some outdoor locations) -Stella, 59 (then in her 20s), author of Dancing with Duality

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

I am Stella Vance, author of a spiritual/ travel/adventure memoir. I joined the 'mile-high club' in my youth while flying from Guadalajara, Mexico to Lima, Peru with my Peruvian boyfriend. It was my idea. I told him which bathroom I’d be in so he could come in five minutes later. That way, no one would be suspicious. I left the door unlocked, he came in, and we did it!

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

I think this is harder to get away with nowadays. There is more surveillance around the bathrooms. But we did it late when most were sleeping.

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

Yes, I would encourage others to do this at least once! In my twenties, I also encouraged other boyfriends to have sex in other places. I recall once it was in a church yard! Another time, we did it in a large Redwood tree (California), in a hollowed out part, and just got zipped up before other tourists came along! I have also done it on the beach... sex on the beach! We found secluded spots just slightly hidden.

9. Apartment pool... in daylight -John, 65 (then 25), marriage, relationship and sexual coach and author of Sex Education for Adults: Secrets to Amazing Sex and Happily Ever After Too

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

We were in the pool so that anyone who saw us knew that we were having sex but could not see anything. The wife was wearing a bikini so I just slipped her bottom off and left on her top and took off my trunks. It was so hot, the thought that someone could have seen us, but no one did... Yes, I would recommend it.

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

It is exciting knowing that someone could come out and catch you but not really see anything.

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

I would encourage others to try it as often as they want an extra thrill, it is naughty and definitely steams up the sex... Another great experience was making love on the beach at night (think of the movie From Here To Eternity). We were seen by couples walking by—they knew what we were doing and yet they really could not see body parts because it was dark.

10. Office—inside and out (on the roof, on a ladder) -Dan, Comedian/Actor/Voiceover Artist/Computer Geek, 33

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

I had sex on top of the Capitol Records Tower and on the CEO's desk. I used to work at Capitol Records in Hollywood. You know, the very famous round building. The CEO's assistant was insanely hot, and I got to know her because the CEO needed help with his computer at his house, and she would coordinate everything. When her boss was out of town, she would sometimes call me and we would have sex in his office—it was awesome. Sometimes, I was terrified because she would make a lot of noise and I was worried that the assistants down the hall would hear. One night, we decided to have sex on the roof of the Tower, overlooking the city, on a ladder. It was awesome, but at the same time quite terrifying. Anybody could have come up at any time!

WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?

Absolutely, I would very much encourage others to try it… in all different kinds of places…

IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?

One has to be careful because there's always the chance of getting caught, so maybe not too often! :-) But, then maybe that's the fun of it, the risk of getting caught. We also went for it on top of an apartment building in broad daylight, and there was a tall office tower next door, and anybody could've seen us. That made it a bit thrilling, I must admit!

11. Porta Potty -Alleykat, 54 (then 25)

Giphy

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

It was the only place on this little island that was out of sight of other people... I was really horny and I talked her into it. I do not recommend it. It was hot, it was stinky, it's cramped, but it was secluded.WAS IT THRILLING? OR TOO SCARY TO REPEAT?It wasn't very thrilling. We were just very horny and definitely would not repeat it unless we were stuck on an island, horny and had no other place to do it. IF YOU'D ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO TRY IT, WHY AND HOW OFTEN?Don't try this at home! The smell is terrible and I'm not sure what disease we could've caught. And, if somebody else had to use it, it would've been embarrassing.

Sidenote: Alleykat ended up marrying the Porta-Potty girl! And they stayed married for almost a decade. So, I guess the old adage "in good times and in bad" does apply.
