Finding a good spot to have sex isn’t hard — the majority of the American population has a bedroom with a mattress. With candles burning and Barry White playing softly, home is a safe place to explore a partner’s body without being interrupted. But some people are a little more adventurous.

My wife and I sometimes find it fun to run to a quiet spot in the park or on a hiking trail in the woods and get to work on some great sex. The most exciting part of having sex in public is the fact that it is illegal.

In California, it is against the law to engage in lewd or dissolute conduct in any public place or to solicit someone else to do so. Lewd conduct is when you touch your private parts or another’s private parts for the purpose of sexual gratification or to annoy or offend someone else. The penalty for public sex is a misdemeanor that can carry penalties of a $1,000 fine and up to six months in jail.

If you are with your partner and having sex in public, technically this law can still be applied. That is where the fun and excitement come into play: knowing that it is a crime and trying not to get caught.

Over the summer, my wife and I would run out to our local waterfalls for a little excitement. After wading downstream and finding a perfect spot that was secluded, we would have sex for 40 minutes or so and then be on our way with no one the wiser.

We don’t go down a back alley or anything like that, just in the woods or a nice field. It feels great to have the warm sun on your back and a warm body laying underneath you.

Even though this is a great experience, while conducting erotic behavior in public, always keep a few eyes out for people trying to catch a free peep show. Unless you’re into that kind of thing. Then by all means, go for it, but always be safe.
