You Will Need

  • A car
  • A consenting sexual partner of legal age


  1. Step 1

    Clean the car

    Be sure that the seats and floors of the vehicle are relatively clean. The mood can be dampened by rotting food and other debris being jostled during the act.

  2. While some people burn candles to heighten the romance, it is not recommended. They’re a fire hazard--and stopping to light them can kill the spontaneity. Also, interior light isn’t helpful when privacy is a priority.

  3. Step 2

    Park safely

    Park your vehicle in a safe, level, legal, and secluded area. Turn off the lights. The legality of the parking spot is especially important as an interruption by police could derail your plans.

  4. Step 3

    Leave ignition on

    If you want to play mood music, leave the ignition on, so as not to drain the battery.

  5. Step 4

    Pick a seat

    Decide whether to have sex in the front passenger seat or in the rear (passenger seat). The driver’s seat isn’t ideal because of the steering wheel. The backseat provides the most room, but it’s less spontaneous, and one is more vulnerable if interrupted.

  6. If your vehicle has fully adjustable seats, lower the front passenger seat to horizontal.

  7. Step 5

    Remove clothing

    Remove the necessary clothing and place it in an empty seat or footwell--preferably one you won’t be using. If you and your partner each claim one area, finding and sorting clothing after sex will be easy.

  8. Step 6

    Assume your positions

    Assume your positions. The man should sit reclining, while the female straddles him.

  9. Exercise caution when climbing over the gearshift.

  10. Step 7

    Have sex.

  11. Step 8

    Drive home

    Get dressed and drive your date home.
