A friend shared with me that her brother had sex with his wife in a bed—in the master suite of a model home as potential homebuyers were entering the front door. Another friend who hosted a wedding at her beach house discovered a couple going at it in her kitchen pantry.
In the vast majority of erotic romances I’ve read, sex still occurs in the privacy of one’s bedroom with an occasional shower scene or isolated mountain cabin thrown in for variation.
But having sex in a public or unusual place adds a certain spice to a romance sex scene. Add the potential danger of getting caught and the thrill increases. I thought about the books I’ve read and from my memory banks pulled these more unusual venues:
- A library
- Store dressing room
- An open field
- Atop a motorcycle (people were moving, bike wasn’t)
- A swimming pool
- A conference room (once during a video conference!)
True to form, in most of my erotic romances, the deed occurs in the bedroom, however, I have written sexual scenes in these locations:
- An isolated country road
- The janitor’s closet in nursing home
- Atop the kitchen sink in front of an open garden window
- Parking garage
- An executive’s office (on the desk, of course).
I don’t read a lot of romantic suspense in which the heroine and hero are on the run and I wonder if perhaps there are more unusual locations in those novels. I’m curious. What’s the most unusual location for sex that you’ve run across either in a novel or real life?
