How to Have Sex Outdoors

Doing the deed outdoors can really spice up your sex life. Just keep a few things in mind.


  • Step 1: Dress for sex-cess Wear clothes that you can easily take off -- and put back on -- if you plan to have sex outdoors. Or wear easy-access clothing that lets you get busy without completely removing much at all.
  • Step 2: Wear protection Use protection -- and that includes a good sunscreen and an insect repellent. If you're planning to do it in the water, use a silicone-based lubricant, as your natural secretions may be washed away.
  • Step 3: Position yourself Choose your sexual position strategically: if you need to be discreet, consider sexual positions that look innocent from a distance. If the ground isn't conducive to the horizontal mambo, do it standing up.
  • Step 4: Clean up after yourself Clean up after yourself when you have sex outdoors, as a matter of both civility and public hygiene. This is especially important in the woods, where used condoms can attract critters to your campsite.
  • TIP: Never bury or burn used condoms; store them in a sealed plastic bag and take them when you leave, along with the rest of your trash.
  • Step 5: Don't put on a show Be discreet when you have sex outdoors: keep in mind that security cameras are everywhere these days, and voices carry. Besides, no one likes a showoff
  • FACT: 57 percent of Americans polled said they've had sex outdoors.
