Great Places to Make Love...Not!

We all read about heroes and heroines making love in wonderfully romantic and creative places--the beach, an airplane restroom, etc. But are those locations really as good as they sound? I mean, who can really enjoy the moment when you're worrying about sand getting into places it shouldn't? Or when you're wondering how sanitary the airplane restroom is and who was doing what in there earlier? Ick!

Today's question is...what locations sound great in romance novels but leave much to be desired in real life?

You are so right about the beach and airplanes... I would say any type of public restroom, storage closets like at a bar or office building and boiler rooms for that matter. I mean in stories hot when they are so into the heat of the moment they can't wait to tear their clothes off and so they burst into some closed door and go at it, but in real life...I'd be concerned with sanitary issues and video cameras.

What a fun topic I can't wait to see what everyone else thinks!

Oops...I meant in stories IT IS hot...

The living room sofa....

And that's all I'm saying...

Oh, and probably a fortunetelling tent at a ren faire..... LOL

This is so all about fantasy... but you are right, the tiny (probably germs) space in an airplane restroom would make it very hard to be sexy-- yet, our h/h are so hot for each other they can't wait. And readers love odd (even kinky) places for the lovemaking. But I sure do hate the washing machine or the kitchen table for real life-- and in stories!

Sex on the kitchen table / counter ... all I'm saying is Yuck!

This is a fun topic because some of my friends and I were just talking about this. Someone read a story where they make love up against a tree, in winter, and afterwards the heroine wipes bark off her ass. LOL This boythered the heck out of my friend, but made the rest of us chuckle.

Yeah, sex on the couch leaves a lot to be desired, as does sex on the bathroom sink. *G* If he thrusts too hard you could break the mirror, and who wants to explain that to the kids (or their mother...LOL)? Oh, and in the car...how uncomfortable is that? LOL

An elevator. I'm claustrophobic. Enough said.

In a closed carriage, Regency style! Among other things, too many listening witnesses...

And of course there's always that literary staple...the hayloft.

Lol I read everyones comments before I posted and I have to agree with a lot of you guys! The bathroom sink is not fun at all!! I had bruises on my entire back from the faucet digging into it, explain those bruises to someone who sees them! The toliet for that matter is not that great either. Do you know how often guys miss the bowl? Can you imagine how many germs are on the bottom of your feet then? EWW I love reading about all these places in stories, but some just not happening.

How about the ones where they do it on horseback, cantering along, one I think I remember it was at a gallop. I can't imagine how they manage not to fall off.

Yep, Diana, sand does get into certain places. Pissing sand for a week is no fun!

No where is safe anymore with video and internet on cell phones.

Every so often, though, it's fun to take some risks and PLAY NAUGHTY!
