Last year, I wrote about the five most overrated places to have sex—the places that seem all hot and sexy, but, actually, are totally awkward and slippery, and where you’ll most likely twist an ankle or something.
This time around I wanted to acknowledge the underrated places to knock boots. The locations that you probably pass by everyday and never even think, “Hey, I could get off in there . . . and there . . . and there . . .” Just think of the possibilities! So I recruited Ohhh Canada’s Katrina McKay to help me narrow it down and pick five of the hottest, most underrated places to have sex.
A Parking Garage Stairwell
Yes, that stairwell that you rush back and forth from every morning and night could be the hottest place you’re not having sex in. In fact, it’s a personal fave of McKay’s. “It’s naughty, it feels very public . . . but generally there’s no one around,” says McKay. Sure, maybe it will be caught on some grainy video footage, but that just adds to the fun of it. My long-time partner and I “did the deed” in this locale and it’s one of those steamy stories we revisit often with each other.” But keep in mind “easy access”—meaning clothes that can come off and easily—is key since this experience is going to be a quickie. And don’t forget to use your surroundings, like walls to lean on and hand rails to hold.
On a piece of sex furniture
Sex furniture is exactly what it sounds like: furniture for having sex. Chances are that you don’t own any. Maybe you think it’s too cumbersome or not necessary, but, according to McKay, it’s pretty necessary. “Not only does sex furniture make things exciting, but it also allows you to get into positions not otherwise possible,” says McKay. “Suspended up against the door? Check. Ultimate g-spot action? That’s possible, too.” Plus, some of them are made of material that’s easily washable, and you can’t say that about your couch, can you?
At a Sex Club
This might sound too far out to some, but “before you get too freaked out, sex clubs aren’t just for swingers,” says McKay. “You can absolutely visit a club with your better half and just take in the atmosphere of sex, sex, and more sex. You can even visit one like Oasis Aqualounge where you can swim naked together. You can be voyeurs, put on a show, or even lock yourselves into a private room. Play with others or just the two of you—that’s up to you.” McKay does suggest that you might warn your date where you’re going so she’s definitely into it.
In your guest room
There’s a room in your house that you probably never touch unless it’s to vacuum or change the sheets whenever your friends crash: the guest room. And, according to McKay, that’s a pretty hot place to get down and it’s right underneath your nose. “Sometimes all it takes is a minor change of scenery. Pair a night in chez you with some roleplaying and be guests in your own house. Shhh! Don’t wake the hosts!”
Speaking of a change of scenery, if doing it in your home is a little, well, too close to home, then why not treat yourself and your woman to a night at one of the city’s most luxurious hotels. “This isn’t exactly original, but it’s a classic for a reason,” says McKay. “So go on—mess up the sheets, order a bottle of wine up to the room and live out those wild fantasies.”
