Try the standing doggy position.

Whether you’re on the beach, in the woods, visiting a secluded spot, or way out in the desert, this versatile sex position helps to keep the sand, dirt, and dust farther away from your most sensitive body parts. The person in front can lean up against a tree or bend over and hold onto their knees for stability when trying this sex position.

Pitch a tent.

If the sand, sun, or bugs are too distracting, a tent may be the perfect solution to spice up your sex life. Enjoy the great outdoors and all of nature’s sensual beauty – from the soft breeze to the sounds of mother nature – while experimenting with different positions (without the full exposure).

Get wet. A woman close to another woman in water.

Don’t let the rain get you down. Take advantage and enjoy the tingling sensation of cool rain on your hot bodies during outdoor sex. If the clouds aren’t cooperating throughout your outdoor adventure, you can always relish in the challenge of peeling off wet layers of clothing and getting creative with car washes and sprinklers.

Dress the part.

You don’t have to strip down completely to enjoy sex and different positions in the great outdoors. Go commando or wear drawstring pants to ease access and increase your chances of getting it on outside of the bedroom.

Pack an outdoor sex kit.

You can’t always plan for sex outdoors or love on the road, but you can certainly be prepared. Throw a picnic blanket, natural bug spray, lube, and even a sex toy in your trunk at the start of the season just in case the mood strikes you while you’re on the road. Although spontaneity can be fun for your sex life, comfort is key to any sexual experience, so if an extra blanket or baby wipes will help to put you or your lover at ease, toss them in your kit.

Have sex on a balcony.

It doesn’t get much hotter than sex above the crowds and beneath the glow of moonlight in the city. Balcony sex offers the best of both worlds: the thrill of exhibitionism and sex outdoors, combined with the security of knowing that you can always slip inside if the exposure feels too intense. If you don’t have a balcony, consider requesting an upper-level room at a hotel or make use of your back porch for trying different sex positions — just be sure to turn off any outdoor lighting.

Get all riled up before taking it indoors.

If you simply can’t resist the comfort of your Egyptian cotton sheets, you can still indulge in spontaneity and the thrills of outdoor sex. Go for walk in your neighborhood and slip into a secluded spot for some heavy making out. Touch and kiss your partner beneath their clothing and allow yourselves to get a little randy before retreating to the privacy and comfort of your own home. By the time your get back, you may be so overcome with desire that you forgo your high thread count sheets in favor of the cold floor of your entranceway.

Check your local laws.

Our fans span the globe from Madrid to Albuquerque and we know that laws regarding nudity, indecent exposure, and sex vary across state lines. No sexual encounter or outdoor adventure, even in a secluded spot, is worth a ride in the backseat of a cop car, so pick locations that minimize exposure and risk.
