The Risky Sex Trend More Couples Are Trying

Bow chika wow whoa.

The possibility of getting caught can make sex exponentially hotter. But the three couples that recently made news for getting down in public didn’t even try to be discreet about their public affair. Surprisingly, it all happened on the same weekend last February.

 At 3:30 in the afternoon on Friday—yes, in broad daylight—one duo started going at it on the sidewalk outside a prom dress store in Chula Vista, California. The shop owner recorded them rolling around on the ground, dry humping. Clothes reportedly came off 15 minutes into their romp. Oh, and they had just met.
At the University of Tennessee on Saturday, another pair got frisky in the press box at Neyland Stadium. How’d they get busted? They posted a photo to Snapchat.

And in a far more disturbing incident, a couple was recorded doing it doggy style against an escalator in an unknown subway station. When a passerby interrupted them, the woman spun around, revealing that an infant had been strapped to her chest the entire time.

(“Is it a crime to have sex in front of a baby?” is one of the more upsetting things you can Google. Answer: It’s frowned upon.)

Let’s be clear: We don’t condone flagrant public sex. It could result in an indecency citation, awkward conversations with family members when they see you on TV, and in the case of the subway couple, a visit from Social Services.

However, experts say we are in the golden age of exhibitionism. Being seen is a major turn-on for some women because it makes them feel desired—which is paramount in female fantasies, says Ogi Ogas, Ph.D., a cognitive neuroscientist and the coauthor of A Billion Wicked Thoughts.

The good news: You can air your freaky laundry without being locked up. Just try to avoid these seven sex danger zones.
