Rockin' the Boat
I once made a friend dream about boatsex - that is, sex on a boat.
It was, of course, somewhat deliberate - we were having a merry little discourse about being on a boat, and suddenly I switched into flirt mode, and said quite innocently, "can we have sex on the boat, in the meantime?"
There's an infamous Jenna Jameson sex scene set on a boat, but then again, given the nature of porn, there's almost guaranteed to be a scene with Jenna Jameson in basically any given situation. In real life, it's much more unusual for one to engage in sexual intercourse in any sort of water transport. Or, for that matter, any unusual situation - as long as you assume from the outset that sex happens on top of a bed.
My experiences stretch as far as being felt up in a jacuzzi - twice, but never actually getting as far as sex in the jacuzzi... we've already agreed, this isn't porn - and, more adventurously, having sex in a restaurant bathroom. But there are a lot of more risqué unusual-places-to-have-sex. One girl I know has done it on a football field, a few in a car (it's cliché, but works), a good few in a tent or two, and who could forget the wonderful moment during a game of "I Have Never" when one of our number said quite cheerfully, "I've never had sex in a bed."
Then we all drank.
I guess what I'm saying here is: has anyone else had this sort of experience? I don't know what's so exciting about it, but it always seems fantastic. Then again, is the discomfort and riskiness of properly positioning yourself in a non-bed place worth it? Surely sex is better when it's comfortable?
I guess my 11-year-old cousin put it best when she said, "In the [primary school] sex education video, they show us this couple doing it on the floor, when there's a perfectly nice bed right next to them! I mean, why?"
We're a very highbrow family.
