Thanksgiving back at home can be a magical time, but it presents some challenges, of course. Aside from thinking of the best strategies for how to dodge relatives' political arguments, you're faced with a pressing dilemma. While coming home for another year means that you get to reconnect with relatives, it also means that you get to rekindle the spark with your old flames from high school. If you're in a relationship and brought your partner home to meet your family, there is some serious romance in the air. In either event, you probably want to plan out a Thanksgiving hookup spot, ASAP. Naturally, having a house filled with relatives complicates any hookup you may have in the works.
You can take a few routes.

"For those who really want to have sex, but don't want others to hear, [you] can take steps to reduce the noise. First, if you are using a bed, make sure the bed is away from the wall so it doesn't bang up against it. If there is not a way to move the bed, you can use the floor, or bend over the side of the bed. Depending on how much noise the bed. Depending on how much noise you typically make during sex, putting on some music can also help mask some of the noise. If you are face-to-face with your partner, you can kiss when you want to moan or scream. For some, biting a pillow works to hold back the moans."
