Making Love in All the Wrong Places

Go To
Not what you want to see when you get home.

"I'll be honest with you: I don't think they'll let us have sex inside George Washington's nose at Mount Rushmore. But it's a very evocative image."

Traditionally, most people tend to have sex in bed. It's comfy, you're usually already undressed and you can go straight to sleep afterward. Chairs and sofas are also popular, they're soft and have the bonus that the person on top can put more of their weight on the frame. However, some people, for a multitude of different reasons, like to venture further afield for their intimate moments. All over the house, in front of the house, on top of the house, someone else's house, in every gas station, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in this area (and every highway checkpoint within ten miles), in the pool, on a plane, in a hotel, in a motel, in a restaurant, in a movie theater, on an elevator, in a bathroom, in a basement, in an attic, at the beach, in the sea, in the road, in the middle of a field, in the middle of the Super Bowl Halftime show, in the woods or hills, In Space!, in a boat, with a goat, in the rain, in the dark, on a train, in a car, in a tree, in a box, with a fox, in a house, with a mouse, here or there, say, they would do it anywhere!


Maybe they think that the old bed is too boring, maybe they don't have a convenient bed and have to do it where they can, maybe they're just so eager to get started that they get down to business wherever they find themselves. Maybe it's their way of getting back to nature. Of course one of the other advantages of bedrooms that might not be afforded by alternative locations is privacy, but that's OK. It could be the thrill of the risk of getting caught that makes it special. Or maybe it's not just the risk, maybe they like being watched. Then again, maybe they just didn't think things through and end up as Naked People Trapped Outside (or in the emergency room). And sexy teens having sex in the back of their car are known to attract hook-handed serial killers.

Obviously Truth in Television for the most part, so please refrain from noting "people do this in real life!" here. Also Truth in Television is the trope of Make-Out Point, and the fact that these tropes very often overlap; a Make-Out Point in Real Life isn't always as private as the people going there may believe.


Not to be confused with Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places, certainly. Unless the person who does that likes having sex outside, then yeah.

Overcome with Desire is a sister trope, about couples having sex without regard to the consequences of doing so, and they frequently overlap.

Here are some reasons not to do it absolutely anywhere.

It's a very common trope so once a section has enough examples it might be worth spinning off as a subtrope.

A Super-Trope to:

    Fooling Around the House 
  • Game of Thrones: Stannis and Melisandre on The Big Board table in The War Room of Stannis, which also makes a bit of a metaphor/Visual Pun.
  • Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness Act II: In chapter 32, while Tsukune & Moka and Dark & Mizore all have the decency to retire to other rooms to make love, Rason and Kurumu just elect to do it right in the middle of the Shirayuki family's living room, all over the place and in various positions.
  • In A Brother's Price, Jerin is seduced in the kitchen, and the lovemaking takes place on the kitchen floor. His partner lampshades that this is highly inappropriate by mentioning the hearth ... having extramarital sex goes against Jerin's obligations towards his family, and her seducing him, the son of the house, is a violation of Sacred Hospitality.
  • Higher Learning: Subverted. In a chapter, Shinji and Asuka are making out in Misato’s living room and they are about to have sex in the tub but Misato shows up early, forcing them to stop and pretend nothing was happening. Many chapters later Asuka wants to try the tub again but Shinji says he has been told it is not a good idea so they opt for their bedroom.
  • Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton: In chapter 12's omake, Misato catches Shinji and Asuka having sex on the kitchen floor. She screams for him to stop, but they are not listening.

    Daniel: No, no, we'll want to have sex in every room. Including yours.
  • Music example: Poe in "Not A Virgin" sings about having sex in a variety of places, including "underneath the table in [her] living room."
    • And, of course, Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon. On the bed, on the floor, on the towel, by the door, in the tub, in a car, up against the minibar...
    • This list couldn't be complete without mention of "Anywhere" by 112. The verses aren't really that indicative, but it's the chorus that outright mentions all the places.
  • Another Music Example: There's implied kitchen sex in Warrant's "Cherry Pie".
  • Literature example: Lux in The Virgin Suicides sneaks people onto her roof for sex, to the fascination of the narrators.
  • Pool/snooker tables seem rather popular, either for the large flat surface or just the opportunity for "balls" jokes and phallic imagery.

  • In Fatal Instinct, the title character and his later stalker have sex in quite a few places in her house - including the inside of her refrigerator.
  • Bathtubs, particularly the large Whirlpool variety.

  • In Katawa Shoujo, while the major part of the sex scenes take place in the school grounds, the first sex scene with Lilly Satou happens in the living room of the Satou family's summer house in Hokkaido. Since it only has two bedrooms and their common friend Hanako is with them, Hisao has to sleep on a futon; Lilly visits him to talk about their recent mutual Love Confession, they start making out, and one thing leads to another. They also subvert the typical "bathtub sex" scene the morning after: they do get into the hot tub and fondle each other, but for the actual sex act, they get out and do it on the floor, next to the tub.
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus: Well, I object to all this sex on the television. I mean, I keep falling off!
  • On King of the Hill, Hank once walks in on his mother and her boyfriend having sex on the kitchen counter.

  • In Nitro + Chiral's BL game DRAMAtical Murder, particularly in the Re:connect game, Koujaku's good end follow-up has both him and Aoba making love in his bathroom with two options: in the bathtub or in the shower.
  • Or how about doing it at someone else's house? The Room obliviously has side characters enter the main protagonist's apartment just to have sex, and not only do they tell him about it, but he also has no problem with it whatsoever, as CinemaSins pointed out. Apparently, Tommy Wiseau didn't realize this is not something normal people do.
  • One of Kate and Maggie's offscreen lovemaking sessions in Batwoman takes place all over Kate's apartment, including the kitchen counter, before finally ending in bed.
  • To Catch A Raven: Raven and Jinx start making out in the common room of the Tower. Robin accidentally walks in on them, which prompts Raven to transport to her bedroom with Jinx.

See for yourself here.

First Tom teleports to a Jeffries tube where B'Elanna is working so they can make out, but later they get so impatient they start doing it on a console on the upper deck of Engineering. And we know from a later episode that they are both quite noisy during these times. Eventually, they're hauled on the carpet before Captain Janeway because half the ship is gossiping about their antics.

  • Phantom Quest Corp.: Incident File: 03 includes a scene where Detective Karino drops by Mr. Nagasuki's office to question him and inadvertently catches Nagasuki in the act of banging his secretary!

    Sex in the City 
  • Public Bathrooms
    • Truth in Television: Numerous celebrities, most infamously George Michael, have been caught engaging in "cottaging", or meeting up with gay men for sex in public bathrooms. Michael used this... "experience" as inspiration for his song "Outside", which is quite the lampshade on the trope as a whole. (The music video has a slew of examples on its own.)

They can also do the deed in hot tubs, including those placed on community lots (one premade example, included with the University expansion pack, is a tower whose sole furnishing is a hot tub on the top floor. On a college campus. Yeah, pretty obvious what the creators' were thinking when they designed it!). The various expansion packs added even MORE venues for Sims to get busy in public, including photo booths, saunas, tents and elevators.
    • in The Sims 3 they can do it in various buildings around town, as well as a sarcophagus in World Adventures, a time machine in Ambitions, treehouses in Generations, the haystacks in Pets, and a magician's box of mystery in Showtime. It seems that a new expansion pack just isn't complete without a new place for Sims to woohoo.

    Extracurricular Class Fun 
  • Especially kinky (high-school?) students get it on in all sorts of places in school:
    • That thumping sound in the sports equipment room may not just be poorly-arranged equipment falling on the padded mats there.
    • On a related note, no, that's not the wind causing the gym's/football field's bleachers to make that rattling noise.
    • The really daring do it on the roof under the open sky.
      • Chihiro and Renji are as far as it can get from daring, though. (They snuck into the rooftop when the school was otherwise closed, though.)
    • When the school hall is unused, there's a measure of privacy amongst the curtains.
    • If your school has a band or choir room, people have sex in it. Especially notable if there's a practice room (what, you thought those students were actually practicing their instruments in there?!) That's right. The marching band kids get more action than you.
      • In example, Crescendo gives us Ryo doing it with Miyu on and against the music room's piano.
    • As above, the Drama Club room may be occupied by people for some private performances.
      • Or if there's a couch or something similar in the dressing room or props room. Or if you're daring, the stage.
    • Some like to go to the prop closet, since it's dark and somewhat secluded, that or greenrooms/locker rooms.
    • If the school has an indoor swimming pool, sometimes it can get reserved for, shall we say, private swimming practice by couples. Sometimes they pop in after-hours to make the session more clandestine.
    • Like hospitals, the school's custodial closet is often used for this.
      • The Simpsons: Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabappel caused some controversy by getting caught in the act doing it in there.
    • Sufficiently large libraries have plenty of secluded nooks and crannies for "studying biology".
      • In a poll taken in 1992 (which was then suppressed for years), 20% of the responding librarians admitted to having done this.
      • In Strawberry Panic!, the school library is used by many couples to have romantic trysts.
      • The highest public floor in a certain library in western Massachusetts is infamous for this, to the point of having regular patrols to shoo out couples.
      • The scene in the Kare Kano manga where Arima has a breakdown after he recovers his childhood abuse memories and pretty much ravishes his girlfriend Yukino takes place in a corner of the school library.
      • In When Evil Calls, Linda discovers her boyfriend Mark receiving a blowjob from Molly in the school library. Whoops!
    • With all the incidental nudity, locker rooms are a natural choice. Often, the students even sneak in a member of the opposite sex.
      • If the lockers are big enough, sometimes students attempting the above duck inside them to continue when others want to come in to change and gossip.
    • Multi-day school trips and high school students. If there is a couple in class, something's more likely than not to happen.
    • If there's nobody napping off their illnesses and the School Nurse is not present, some nurse's assistants and Class Health representatives may commandeer the nurse's office or sickbay for some creative Intimate HealingGeneral Hospital's Brenda and Jagger almost had sex here before the nurse walked in on them.
  • Since Katawa Shoujo takes place in a Boarding School, there are several instances of this kind of sex taking place in other places than the dormitories:
    • Shizune seems quite prone to this. You didn't do it, but she wanted to have sex on the school rooftop. Also, while not as severe as other cases, it isn't a good idea to have sex in your parents' house when they (or at least her dad and brother) can just barge in at any moment. And finally, Hisao and Shizune's big sex scene takes place in the student council room at night.
    • Eventually lampshaded in the fanfic Weekend at Hisao's, where Hisao points out how this kink of Shizune's can get ... risky.
    • The second scene for Emi takes place in the sport supplies shed. It's... hilariously awkward, especially since it's anal sex and the naked Emi is bent over one of the props. It's also implied that Emi did... something amazing with Hisao in the rooftop — three guesses as to what.
    • Rin and Hisao's first sex scene takes place in the painting atelier that Sae got for her. One wonders what would've happened if either she or Nomiya walked in.
    • In the fanfic Lilly Epilogue Family Matters, Hisao and Lilly, the Official Couple, get an apartment with their mutual friend Hanako for several reasons, one being that Lilly's "healthy adolescent sex drive" would make it difficult to live with Hisao's parents. Hanako once walks in on the two having sex late at night after their proposal in the living room of their apartment.

  • Referenced in Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle. Alterize asks Lux if it's true that he and Krulcifer are spending their nights together.

  • In All Cheerleaders Die, Hanna, in Martha's body, has sex with Manny in the school's disabled bathroom: much to the distress of a student in a wheelchair who is pounding on the door wanting to get in.
  • Kashiwagi and her boyfriend get to second base in a locker when visiting a haunted house during the culture festival arc in Kaguya-sama: Love Is War (they were supposed to be used for horror-based ASMR).

    Misato:"YOU SAW US!?! WHEN?! WHERE?"
    Asuka:"When, I don't remember exactly...but WHERE...oh, you were probably getting excited doing that in the park...where everyone could see you."
    • Shinji and Asuka’s first time was in Misato’s apartment’s living room. They did it on the floor and on the couch.
  • In the (NSFW) X-Men: Evolution fic My Friend, My Lover, Jean is confronted by the rest of the students after she and Scott were spotted coming out of school weight room with messy clothes and huge grins. Once the others become too pushy with their questions, she snaps and unloads a Too Much Information rant at them, mentioning "storage rooms at school, the locker room, the lounge, and even the danger room" (the latter was used in both this fic and others by the same author as an appropriately programmed Holodeck).

At one point after the war, they were going to do it in an Alliance ship's med bay but the doctor walked in on them before they managed to strip all the clothes; there was also another time where they deliberately placed their room right next to a bitchy Spectre's and had sex all night to keep her awake through the thin wall.
  • In Dharma & Greg, Dharma and Jane have a running competition to see who can have sex in the weirdest place without getting caught, with the winner being able to claim a ceramic duck.

Jane foils this by tricking Kitty and Edward there, forcing them to hide... whereupon the older couple reminisce about the early days of their relationship and end up winning the duck themselves.
    Edward: "That's not a duck, it's a goose."
    Dharma: "Yes, but Captain, my Captain, ''goose'' does not rhyme."

  • Mass Effect 2: Shepard and Miranda have sex in the Normandy's engine room. The reasoning behind it is that this is to avoid the Illusive Man's monitoring devices... But the fandom likes to say that it's because she's an exhibitionist. Or it could be because Miranda's two potential romantic rivals (Kelly doesn't count) are both stationed on the engineering deck. She's kind of like that.
    • If you have the Kasumi DLC, at least she notices. "Really, Shepard, in the engine room? Right where Tali works?"
  • And yes, it has been done with green eggs and ham.

Ignoring that, the fact that she was conceived on an impossibly powerful time machine is pretty unusual (and impressive) in itself.

  • If this Cracked article is anything to go by, at casinos like Mohegan Sun, the excitement of gambling gets mixed up with sexual arousal. As the author points out:
    "We've caught guys finger-banging their girlfriends under the roulette table and ladies giving handjobs at the poker table. What many patrons don't realize is that almost all casinos have damn near 100 percent camera coverage. At the Mohegan Sun, this has allowed us to record everything from nip-slips to elevator sex to people banging in the slot machine corner. I'm pretty sure that our surveillance guys can't even look at porn anymore because it feels too much like work."

    Topanga: Cory, that's sick!

  • Ancillary Sword. Breq and her Number Two have a discussion on this point, given that they're on a spaceship with the resulting lack of space and privacy, and the crew doesn't have the private quarters available to officers.
