The Safer Sex ball in Exeter saw two students getting a bit too close for comfort and engaging in sexual acts at a bar whilst being filmed on CCTV.

Sex in Public: Thrilling or Stupid?

Sex in Public: Thrilling or Stupid?

The explicit four minute clip has gone viral but why would you have sex in public in the first place?

Well, some will tell you the thrill is unlike anything they’ve ever encountered before.

Many couples will tell you that the thought of getting caught or even nearly getting caught ramps up the pleasure to the max.

Others will say that simply being outdoors and feeling like an exhibitionist is enough to get them their kicks.

But there is one problem; it’s illegal to have sex in a public place. Are you really willing to risk fines and jail time just to get your kicks?

Also, not only could you get yourself in trouble with the law but, come on, how embarrassing must it be to get caught?

You’ll be walking through the street to whispers and snide comments, especially if you got caught behind your local Tesco by an old classmate!

And, if your tryst was captured on camera, it could end up all over the internet and once it’s out in cyberspace, it’s out of your control.

Just imagine walking past a news stand to see yourself in a compromising position on the front page of the daily press, not a great start to your morning right?

Of course, these are extreme cases, but is it really worth the risk?

    Sex in public is great and exciting. It is also thrilling. It is so natural. Just make sure it is a quite spot or you can do it in some concealed area. Women love outdoor sex so much. Women love to experiment with sex in diffferent places. I love to please, i am a guy who love outdoor sex.

    My boyfriend and I thought it would be fun to give public sex a go, how wrong could I have been. It wasn't exciting, it was terrifying! Definitely wouldn't try it again, I'm too scared of getting caught!

    The girlfriend was giving me oral in the car once when I noticed a guy watching us through the trees beside the car park. Guess he couldn't see much more than her head going up and down. Didn't say anything till she'd finished. Bit of a thrill for me and the guy watching I guess!

    I love the natural feel of sex in the summer when out for a picnic but that is more outdoor sex rather than public but the risk of being discovered is still there, public sex is thrilling from the erotic anyone could catch us point of view, but where i am it's stupid as you would be placed on the sex offenders register for it so we refrain

    I never thought of it as public, as it was before cameras (hopefully), and on the top of a garage park with no other cars. and only a blowjob.

    I did have, huh imagine that, a blow job in a cemetery, in the rain, and sex in my office and other places at work after hrs.

    I think sex outside is definately thrilling due to the risk of getting caught. Providing it isn't somewhere completely inappropriate I don't think this is stupid. Public sex could be considered something different though. I'm not sure how I would feel about having an audience!

    It could be alot of fun. Like you said the thrill of not getting caught. No audience, not really into that at all.

  10. by Citybabe 23rd Jan 2013 17:46

    It should be public enough that there is a risk, but not so public that there's going to be an audience as you say. My ex was quite into outdoor sex so I've experimented with a few places! :oops:

    haha...did it on a train once, it was the last train home so we were the only people in the carriage, we did get caught but he didn't stay for long. I'll have to keep you guessing on the other places!

    To come back to the topic at hand, there is a huge difference between sex in public and sex in the great outdoors in a discreet but quiet public place.

    The topic at hand, does that count as sex?

    I like the idea of a sex offenders register or list but it is being abused by those who control it, it should only be used for those who are sex offenders who target/groom kids or the vulnerable or sexually attack another person, not to be used on consenting adults or some poor guy needing the toilet x
