Holiday Hookup at Your Parents’ House

holidayhouselights2The holidays are quickly coming up. And for many of us, it means traveling to stay with relatives or friends.

So here’s a question: Do you have sex when you are staying in someone else’s house?

I’ve always been a little leery about getting it on in a guest bed. What if they hear us? What if we mess up the sheets? What if someone walks in on us?

My husband, on the other hand, has no qualms about it. But that goes along with the rest of his laid-back personality.

We all know that extended family get-togethers can sometimes be a little stressful and chaotic. So what better way to release some endorphins and relax than by having sex with your partner.

Here are a few things to think about before you start “relaxing” so you won’t have any worries when you’re being intimate and can focus on how good it feels:

How sound proof is your room? One night, we stayed at a friend’s house and got a little randy. And the next morning, we found out that she could hear us. Because she knew exactly what time we went to bed. Yes, moans do travel through air conditioning vents.

Does your door lock? The only thing worse than having your host hear you getting it on is having them walk in on you when you’re doing it. Check the lock and use it. Especially important if there are kids around. Don’t want to scar anyone for life.

Is the bed squeaky? There’s no hiding the squeak of a bed. So give it a little try and bounce on it ahead of time. If the bed is loud, consider throwing a comforter on the floor and go at it there.

Make a game of being quiet. It can be fun to be sneaky and having to be silent can add a little eroticism to your sex. If your bathroom is en-suite, have a little fun in the shower. The noise of the running water will help drown out your noises.

Clean up after yourself. Be sure and strip your own bed before you leave. If possible, deposit the sheets directly in to the washing machine. No muss, no fuss.

Or you can do what we’re doing this year: Leaving the kids with my parents at their house and heading to a hotel for the night. Thanks Mammoo and Poppi.

Are you comfortable having sex when you’re staying at someone else’s house?
