Welcome to Jezebel After Midnight, in which we indulge in sexy sex talk.

There's nothing wrong with having sex in a bed. Beds are soft, cushy horizontal surfaces, and should you fall asleep immediately after fornicating, you're in the perfect place. But sometimes it's exciting to have sex somewhere else. The shower, the kitchen, the dining room… Or the backyard. I asked around a little, and an informal poll of friends resulted in this list of places people have peaked:

  • The beach (by a dune)
  • The beach (in the water)
  • A public park
  • A bathroom in a bar
  • The stoop of a brownstone in Brooklyn
  • A car
  • A New York City rooftop

What's so alluring about taking indoor sports outside? First, there's the spontaneity — being in the moment and getting instant gratification is a turn-on. But there's also a thrill that comes specifically from doing it in public. Is someone watching? Will you get caught? Getting away with banging in a bathroom creates a secret accomplishment you and your partner share. And, of course, there's a separate and distinct pleasure stemming from getting nookie in nature. Whether you're camping (and humping) under the stars or boning under the boardwalk at a crowded beach, the fresh air, elements and scenery all add to the experience.


So where's the weirdest/oddest/most exciting place you've ever had sex? (Hint: "In the ass" is not an acceptable answer.)
