Getting It On at Your Parents' House

For some, it's a turn-on--but for others, it's the exact opposite.

When you go away to your folks' house for the holidays, sleeping with your husband or significant other can feel a little strange. After all, your parents are right in the next room! But, depending on your kink factor, that could also be a turn-on for some (because...your parents are right in the next room).

One mom in the office says she never has sex when she's visiting her parents' house. "My husband knows I'm off limits those days," she says. Another single mother found it a turn-on to hook up with her longterm boyfriend in her old childhood bedroom. "Let's just say role-play was involved...and, yes, a pom pom or two made an appearance."

One mom even admitted to booking a suite instead of crashing at the folks' house so she and her husband could get it on. What about you have sex when you're visiting family? Why or why not?

This is disgusting! There are plenty of places to have sex, your parents house is not one of them. Respect your parents at least enough to wait until you get to an alternative.

May I recommend:

The laundromat
Your child’s schoolroom
In the ball pit at Chuck E. Cheese (only works at night, but easy to get in if you pose as a health inspector)
The movie theater
Car dealerships

Yeah I remember bringing a black girl home with me one Thanksgiving, my racist grandmother (you know, a typical white person) was shocked. We made sure she heard us just to drive the point home. I ended up marrying her, how ya like those apples, Grandma?

For what ever reason hubby gets super turned on when we are staying with family (or fam is staying with us) Once we were sharing a hotel room with his parents while we were visiting his grandparents. We did it with me sitting on the bathroom counter while they thought I was showering and he was getting ready for bed. It was amazing and we still use that position :)
