I always thought general idea was to take the condoms you bought in the gas station bathroom out of the bathroom before using them.Â Apparently not so for a lot of people.Â Ick.
But here’s this question.Â Why do people have sex in public places?
Logistics can certainly play a part in the public-sex equation. But having sex in a car or on the slide at the local playground is a lot different from having sex in the women’s bathroom at Qwest Field during a Seahawks game, something a Thurston County deputy prosecutor was alleged to have done in 2006.
This article claims that the main reason is to stick it to the man (no pun intended), but I think people do it for reasons that don’t have anything to do with that at all.Â For instance, I have a friend, let’s call him “Mike”, who had to have sex in a restroom at a bar.Â He didn’t have any other choice.Â If he’d tried to take the girl some place private his girlfriend would have definitely seen them leave together and caused a big scene.Â Â Then there’s the case of another friend, let’s call him “Eric”,Â who had to do it in the bathroom in the Atlanta airport.
“Had to” you ask?Â Well, duh, yeah.Â They met on the plane, and both had layovers in Atlanta en route to their separate destinations.Â If you’ve checked in for a flight in Atlanta post-9/11 you know that security is a nightmare, so leaving the terminal just wasn’t an option.Â And what about the people at my former job who would hook up in the broom closet or outside by the dumpster?Â Do you really expect them to go anywhere else when they’re only given 30 minutes for lunch?Â It just doesn’t make sense.
So I would contend that public sex happens out of necessity more often than not.Â Life just moves too fast, and it’s getting tougher and tougher to line up schedules, much less make reservations at an hourly hotel.Â Feel free to leave your own public sex experiences in the comments, just please don’t leave your real name if I know you.Â Chances are it’s not an image I want stuck in my head.
