Maybe it's the lower air pressure. Maybe it's travelling at 500 mph. Maybe it's just a desire to do what few people have ever done. The complimentary wine probably plays a part. It's unclear, but sometimes people just like to have sex on aircraft. Usually in the toilet, which is not exactly the most romantic location on the planet (nor spacious on most airplanes), but is one of the few private places.

[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mile_High_Club The Other Wiki has an article on this]]. It is worth noting that [[DoNotTryThisAtHome the airline company will probably sue you, since it's of questionable legality.]] There are, however, dedicated companies for this sort of thing. (however, despite the name of the Trope, [[NonIndicativeName there is no actual "club" of this name]]).

Realistically, given the layout of most modern-day airplanes, unless it is very late at night and everyone is asleep and no attendants are looking, it's difficult for two individuals to enter the same washroom at the same time without being noticed, much less exiting when the odds of someone waiting to go in is very high.



* In ''Film/{{Emmanuelle}}'', the titular character joins the club during her flight to Thailand because it's a long flight and she's too restless to sleep.

* In ''Film/{{Emmanuelle}}'', the titular character joins the club during her flight to Thailand because it's a long flight and she's too restless to sleep. In fact, she does it twice in the space of five minutes: once in the traditional way - in the lavatory - and once actually in her seat (which turns on an onlooker, leading to the lavatory rendezvous).

* The stoner couple in ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane'', who of course die for their [[TheScourgeOfGod drug-abusing]], [[DeathBySex sex-having]] ways.
** Also played for some lovely BlackComedy. The flight attendants arrive after the couple has been bitten by the snakes, and having screams and bodies thumping against the wall, assume the couple is still having sex. Listening to the woman's screams, the elder female flight attendant muses this guy is ''good''. When the screams stop suddenly (the couple has now died), she changes it to "Maybe not that good."

* ''[[Film/NineteenFortyOne 1941]]''. IceQueen Donna Stratton turns into a raging nymphomaniac whenever she gets into the air. Knowing this, HandsomeLech Captain Loomis Birkhead is willing to risk death (he flunked flying school) to get her up in an aircraft. Just as he's finally mastered the plane (and her) they're interrupted by the guns of a pilot in a P-40 Warhawk who thinks they're from the Japanese army.

* Shortly after Singapore Airlines introduced the closed first class suites on their new Airbus A380s, they were soon telling people not to do this on their aircraft to respect the other passengers, since the first class suites are not soundproof.
** Etihad may well go the same way with their A380s.
