What is the best location to have sex in the mountains?

You’ll want to find a spot where you can spy any hiker before they spot you, thus meaning somewhere on higher ground and far away from the trail. Don’t go too far, however, as who knows what kind of emergency could come up (trust us, there are a couple), and you’ll want to be able to find your way back to civilization.

Is it uncomfortable to have sex in the mountains?

No, but that’s why you should bring at least one blanket for ground cover, and two if you want some real cover. There is also another technique very common amongst lovers in the woods. If you’re not looking to lie down, try leaning up against a boulder or tree and change that horizontal hula into a standing sexual escapade. Make sure to check beforehand, however, as no one wants a sap and tick covered rear-end; it’s neither the sexiest nor most comfortable way to carry out the rest of the day post-coitus.

Is it safe?

Bugs might be the biggest foes you’ll have to contend with during your outdoor sex adventures. They are not discerning, and will bite any bit of exposed flesh. You definitely don’t want to put bug spray anywhere near your nether regions, so that makes you extra vulnerable (in fact, it’s also a good idea to wipe bug spray off your body before having sex, since you don’t want any trace of those chemicals getting on your genitals). If it seems like you’re in a bug-heavy area, or if you’re near water during a mosquito-friendly season, do yourselves a favor and stay inside the tent. Do a quick sweep with a flashlight to make sure there aren’t any stray bugs zipped up with you — and don’t forget to check for ticks after!

Do we need to use a condom?

If your partner has a penis, one of the best ways to keep things clean is to use a condom. Even if you don’t use condoms in your non-camping sex life, I still highly recommend using them in this occasion. You won’t have to worry about cleaning up a mess after he ejaculates, nor will you have to worry about anything dripping out of you if you have intercourse. Just tie it up and toss it in the trash. If you don’t have a dumpster near your campsite, make sure you pack the condom out with you.

What are the best positions for outdoor sex?

There are obviously a fair number of logistical challenges around camping sex, so do yourselves a favor and stick with what you know. Now is not the time to try anal sex for the very first time. Keep it simple and enjoy the things you already know you like. If you’re going to have intercourse, Missionary, spooning (facing the same direction), or face-to-face on your side are all great options since they don’t require a lot of space or movement.
