Always making love in the bedroom? Sticking to the same sex routine can become dull.

Instead of always making love in the bedroom, why not try a change of scene? It can make all the difference – and you can always make your way to the bedroom later.

Better still, book a night away. Here are some alternative spots where you can have mind-blowing sex without breaking the law:


In the shower or bathtub

Foreplay is what makes shower sex so great. Washing each other can be very arousing. Soap on the skin can add a lot of sensitivity.

Although the act itself can be cumbersome in the shower without some kind of seat, the shower is always an excellent place to kick things off before drying off and heading to the bedroom.



In the kitchen

Another fun place to have sex that’s still in the confines of you and your partner’s space is the kitchen.

If you’re having a romantic night in (like these fun date ideas for homebodies) and things get steamy while you’re cooking together, who says you have to hop off the kitchen countertops and bring it to the bedroom?

Just make sure you don’t burn dinner in the heat of the moment.

In the living room

Or let’s say you’d rather not sleep where you eat, and you start heading for the bedroom… Why not cut the trip short by settling somewhere in between, like the hallway floor or a living room chair?

Having a random element of spontaneous sex adds sexual tension to a relationship, and keeps the passion alive


In the laundry room 

It might sound odd at first, but the laundry room is the perfect place to get down and dirty. There’s something about the height of the machine and gentle rocking motion makes for a super-sexy combination.

Try a warm or hot wash, and use the cotton cycle for the longest or fastest spin and most vibration.


In front of a mirror

Being able to see yourself in the act in real time is interesting. You’ll find that you end up watching yourself just as much if not more than your partner.

It’s unusual to be able to see yourself having sex while actually doing it, so it’s fun if you haven’t done it in a while, and especially if you’ve never done it before.




On the sofa

As you’re scouting for sexual adventure, don’t overlook couches and overstuffed chairs.

Comfy and casual, they provide additional back support and their low height (compared to beds) makes a range of positions available.


In a parked car

Inside a car is not the most comfortable place to have sex, but car sex is usually random and thrilling enough to make it so worth it.

Car sex allows you to get more creative with new, unexpectedly pleasurable positions since it presents new spacial restrictions.

Plus, the semi-public element can be exciting and then some. Be sure to park somewhere discreet!


At a hotel

If you’re interested in having sex outside the bedroom but aren’t opposed to all beds worldwide, why not plan a romantic getaway?

If you don’t have enough time for an actual trip, just have a staycation at a local hotel instead. These 10 hotels are our top picks for romantic staycays
