Sex in Public Places: Pros and Cons
When we talk about sex in public places, we need to describe right away and delineate exactly what is meant by
“public”, because it does mean a lot of different things to many people. In this context, it will be discussed
whether it is OK to have sex on a beach, for example, or under the stars, in a camp ground, in hotels, or any other
place where you might run the risk of exposing yourself to others because you are not in the safety and security of
your own home.
But before we move onto this, a little bit about extremes...
Before moving onto a discussion of sex in perfectly reasonable semi-public places though, we have to discuss
some of the extremes that people sometimes get up to. This article in no way encourages sex in true public places.
For instance, sex in public parks, on the beach, in cinemas or in any other place where it is not appropriate is
completely off limits. This is not to say that people do not take risks, because they do. Anyone denying that this
takes place would be out of their minds.
But on the other hand, legal punishments already exist for this kind of behavior and if someone
is engaging in sex in public places then it can be said that one of the biggest cons against doing this is the
simple fact that there is jail time for it if you are caught. Going to jail for a few minutes of thrills is not
such a great idea!
How about sex in public places where it’s expected?
On the other hand, there are many “public” places where people are expected to be
having sex all the time. It can still be very thrilling to do this, for instance if you are in a hotel, a camp
ground, or a festival where everyone has set their tents up, but there are no legal ramifications. The only
thing that might be embarrassing is the look you get from your friends or the hotel owners the morning
This is why most people moderate their sexual behavior when they are in semi public places like hotels or
camping sites. At home, someone might be a screamer or a moaner, but in a place like this they may just remain very
silent or simply giggle a lot. It really depends on what type of person you are.
That’s not to say you should not live life, but beware of the risks
None of this is to say that you should prohibit yourself entirely from the proposition of having sex in public
places, but you should be aware of the pros and cons of doing so. Ideally, you will need to find a way to do it
without bringing suspicion on yourself.
For instance, if you would really like to have sex in a field or on the beach under the stars, make sure you do
it on a more secluded beach rather than one where people — or even the police — are likely to show up.
And then there are other things you need to think about which might turn you off the whole idea at all. For
instance, having sand in vagina or in your penis is really not a great idea and there are also bacteria and
parasites which can land you in trouble literally.
Regardless of your reasons for wanting to consider sex in public places, pros and cons are what you should be
weighing up whenever you are trying to decide whether this is a good idea or not.
