Whether you’re brand new to the idea of public sex or have been doing the nasty right out in the open for a while now, it goes without saying that there’s nothing quite like it when you’re really in the mood. The spontaneity, the exciting locations, the thrill of possibly getting caught – all of it together adds up to some of the most exhilarating sex you’ve ever had. Plus, spring and summer are on the way, so ample opportunity to indulge is right around the corner.

Even so, knowing you love public sex is one thing. Understanding how to get the most out of your experiences is another. Here we’ll go over everything you need to know for having sex like a pro anytime and anywhere. Learn how to avoid getting caught and how to elevate even the best public sex even further.

  1. Plan ahead and forget the underwear

When you’re looking to enjoy a quick and dirty tryst, you don’t want to have to waste time fumbling with your underthings. (Women’s underwear in particular is notorious for getting in the way.) If you’re planning on being somewhere there might be an opportunity to enjoy each other in public, skip the underwear altogether. If you like, you can even make sure your partner knows in advance so they can’t stop thinking about how bare you are underneath your clothes.

Already wearing underwear and see a possible opportunity approaching regardless? Try slipping away quickly to remove it in advance before slipping it discreetly into your bag. The less fabric between you and your beloved when it’s go time, the better!

  1. Never underestimate the importance of timing

No matter what your location of choice, it goes without saying that timing is everything. For best results, consider whether or not your destination of choice is really the best spot for what you have in mind at the time you’re going to be there. A popular beach or busy park, for instance, is going to be a much better pick after dark or on the off season that it will at noon on a sunny Saturday.

Keep a running list of go-to locations that almost always provide ample opportunity to get frisky in a pinch. The woods are always a great choice, as there’s always a little-known spot that can easily provide you with the coverage you need. Your car will also come in handy, as you can always drive it down a lonely back road or to a secluded area before getting down to business.

  1. Dress to blend in

A stubborn pair of underwear that might slow you down in the heat of the moment isn’t the only way your wardrobe can sabotage a public tryst. Bright, attention-getting colors can make it difficult to impossible to blend into your surroundings and keep from being spotted, so plan your outfits with care on days you’re hoping public sex might be on the menu.

Stay away from bright colors like red, yellow, or bright neon green that can’t help but stick out like a sore thumb, even when you’re well hidden. Instead, go for muted neutrals that will help you literally become part of the scenery in case anyone happens to glance your way while you’re en flagrante.

  1. Practice the fine art of having sex standing up

If you’re going to be getting it on somewhere well out of the way where there’s not a single soul within miles of you, you can totally have sex in whatever position you want. More often than not though, you’re going to have to get creative as far as your position. In other words, a public session probably isn’t going to allow you to lie down under most circumstances.

Instead, work on mastering the fine art of having sex while standing. Pick a spot where you can brace your back against something sturdy for leverage. (Walls, doorways, boulders, and cars all work just fine.) Then work with your partner to achieve good balance and a rhythm that works for you both. Doggie style works well in a pinch as well.

  1. Keep it quiet

While we’d normally be all for getting vocal during sex and letting it all out, you’ll want to hold back a bit when you’re getting busy in public – especially if you’re serious about not getting caught. Even the softest moans can sometimes be heard a lot more clearly than you think and you definitely don’t want to draw any passers-by in your direction when you’re on the verge of orgasm.

Sometimes having to keep things super quiet can make things all the more exciting, but if you really can’t keep completely mum, there are alternatives to consider. Try whispering sexy things into your partner’s ear instead as you go at it or muffling your screams of ecstasy against your partner’s neck or shoulder.

10 Expert Tips for Having Awesome Public SexTweet it
  1. Forget about traditional foreplay

Yes, foreplay is critical when it comes to getting your engine properly revved up in preparation for the main event. It’s probably best to save it for use at home when you have plenty of time to do it properly though. When you’re in public, you’ll want to make a direct beeline straight for the honey pot instead. (Chances are you’re aroused enough just by the illicit nature of what you’re about to do!)

Alternatively, you can simply change your approach to foreplay. Keep it tasteful with some nuzzling, soft kisses, and prolonged caressing in the hours and minutes leading up to the deed – things you can do in public without getting arrested or drawing disapproving looks. Whispering sweet nothings (and naughty little somethings) into your partner’s ear works too.

  1. Have an excuse at the ready just in case

Even the most practiced, discreet public sex lovers could potentially get caught, so it’s always a good idea to have a plausible excuse at the ready just in case. Is it possible what you were just doing could be mistaken for something innocent? Give lying your ass off a shot and hope it works. Often, the person that caught you will be just as embarrassed as you are (if not more) and won’t care to stick around any longer than they absolutely have to.

On the other hand, let’s say you’re caught by a cop, security, or the management. It’s really just best to just apologize, promise not to do it again, and leave as soon as possible. Hopefully you’ll be able to escape any real consequences, but really… the possibility totally comes with the territory, right?

  1. Save the movie reenactments for your imagination

If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve definitely scoped a scene or two in a movie that you wouldn’t mind trying out yourself. (Who doesn’t think the famous train scene in Risky Business looks like a blast and a half?) It’s important to understand that there’s a massive difference between Hollywood (or porn) and real life though.

Having great sex in public is challenging enough without trying too hard to relive your favorite scenes from Fifty Shades of Grey. Of course, we can’t stop you if you’re bound and determined to do it anyway. Just understand that movie magic is a huge part of the reason why movie love scenes always go off without a hitch.

  1. Choose your sexual aids with care

Although you might think that you absolutely have to leave sexual aids like vibrators out of the equation if you’re going to be having sex in public, that’s not necessarily true. Just make sure you pick the right options and it shouldn’t be too hard to keep things pretty discreet.

Look for toys that are actually made with discretion in mind. Small, vibrating bullets with ultra-quiet motors are one option. Alternatives designed to look like lipstick, jewelry, or other innocent objects are another. Not only are such items easy to use discreetly, but they can help you keep things short and sweet by helping you both finish with a bang more quickly. Just pick a location with at least a little background noise just in case.

  1. Flex your creative muscles

Once you’re used to having sex in public, you’ll probably find that you start seeing opportunities to get busy practically everywhere… and really, they are everywhere. Let your creativity be your guide when it comes to cultivating new experiences and crafty ways to pull them off without a hitch.

Having sex at the office? Arrange to “work late” and have your lover stop by after everyone else has gone home. Getting busy in your car? Use your jackets to cover the windows and create a little extra privacy. Joining the Mile High Club? Wait for a good opportunity to slip into the rest room, but take an airsickness bag with it so you can pretend one of you wasn’t feeling well if you get caught. You get the picture! Now go forth and enjoy yourselves.
