The fieldhouse at the Appalachian State football stadium (first time!), in the stacks at Duke Library, behind a church off I-64 in West Virginia. Reasonably certain that last one was where my oldest kid was conceived.

Two stories from where I grew up. I can assure you that neither one is an urban legend, although they sure have the sound of one:

High school girl is having an affair with the deputy sheriff. They're getting it on in the police cruiser, and they accidentally bump against the radio mike so that the police dispatcher can hear everything.

Another girl is having an affair with the ambulance driver. He parks the ambulance in a remote spot, and they get it on in the back. He accidentally turns on the flashing light, attracting the attention of the minister who lives nearby, who comes to investigate and finds them in flagrante.

re: 95

I'd have said the same. I'm not attracted to risk, and I'm fairly private and not-exhibitionist. I don't even like leaving the curtains open.

But somehow, these things end up happening [especially if alcohol and/or quasi-exhibitionist girlfriends are involved].

I'm actually not putting you on.

For the record, the two I wasn't so directly involved in are the sailboat (i was lookout) and the police car (i was in a second car). The former wasn't as risky as it sounds, we were friends with the guy doing mall security.

Much of the above list stems from one particular girl though, who was kind of exhibitionist, but more about pushing boundaries. We ended up in a weird `top that' dynamic for a while. Some of it was a lot of fun, but also we were both very young and generally had a screw the world attitude.

As for the bikes: not unusual amongst bikers, and I was amongst bikers.

The Smy/th Class/ical library at Har/vard is inside Wide/ner. Most departmental libraries are outside of Widener and are staffed by librarians. Classics is much more low-key. and you just get a key to the library if you're a concentrator or taking a sufficiently advanced course. You'd need it, because that's where they leave course reserve items. Just before Widener was to close, somebody would come in to warn you to leave the library, but there was a small set of stacks in the back and a couple of computers in another back room which required a separate key. There was no window there, so nobody would notice if the lights were on.

I never did this, but I figured that you could go in the back stacks and nobody would know. Then you could either do something there or go out into the main library. The main library room was quite comfortable. There were oriental rugs and nice leather chairs. I don't remember whether there was a couch.

What I find is interesting is the etiquette surrounding other people's public or semi-public sex, especially in an environment where true privacy really isn't possible. Obviously you don't stare, but do you pretend not to notice? Do you look on with cheerful tolerance? Mild opprobium? Do you seek out something, anything else to stare at?

re: 102

A moderate level of exhibitionism seems a fairly common 'thing' among youngish women. Or at least that was my experience. And it's hard not to go along with it without coming over as a boring prude. Plus, alcohol.

LB is right, there's a lot to be said for privacy and comfort.

- In a teacher's office, with the teacher (art school)

- On a beach that we thought was remote, but were interrupted mid-coitus by about a hundred boy scouts on a hike.

- Next day on a different beach, were interrupted by some dog walkers.

- Same day, same beach. Success, but were hit by an enormous wave on climax.

LB, I'm sure that outside of a genuine desire for risk or whatever, a lot of this sort of thing comes up just because you are too young to have a private place of your own reliably. So it probably correlates highly with sexual activity at a young age.

One summer, I stayed at the NYU Law School Dorms. On one floor (14th?), there is a laundry room with glass windows right next a large common balcony. I walked out one night to find a couple getting it on. The odd part was that they were totally naked. No discrete parting of the clothes. Every bit of clothing was off.

oudemia, I wouldn't put it quite that way. My undergraduate degree is in Classics, but I haven't done any serious reading since then.

I was once making out with a girl in a darkened nightclub. Nothing particularly unseemly or exhibitionist. No inappropriate touching. But, when we stopped, the people at the next table clapped.

That was a 'I hope the floor opens up and swallows me' moment as we (the girl and I) had only just met and it was all a bit awkward.

Halfway through, they realized that their blinds were open, and that there was half a roof-full of fellow students exhorting them on from the top of the dorm next door. The two of them really put on quite a performance before they realized what was happening, too, the way she tells it, with all of the self-conscious, overt theatricality of a passionate but naive first-time sexual experience. She was mortified at the time, but can certainly laugh about it now.

On the couch in a boyfriend's apartment. Halfway through, we noticed that there were people watching us from their fire escape through a window what we didn't know was a possible place to be observed from. We figured what the hell and went on with what we were doing, they had to put some effort into watching us, so it wasn't as if we were inflicting a distasteful spectacle on them. Occupied in other matters, we kind of forgot about them, until one said loudly enough to be heard from the next building "Guys! Look! He's still doing it!"

The boyfriend was preening over that for a surprisingly long time.

A couple I know tried to commit sodomy* in every state before their 10th anniversary. They almost made it, but were a little late on Alaska. Camping, road trips, and train trips were all involved.

I used to live with them, and we had a U.S. map on the wall to which pink triangles were added state by state. I don't remember exactly what we told our parents it was for when they came to visit.

*I.e., have hott lesbian sex, however any particular state happened to define "sodomy."

I'm not enough of a fan of public sex to have racked up the kind of location list my predecessor has -- and I've never been tempted to try an airplane bathroom, perhaps the least sexy location imaginable to me -- but my weirdest was probably in a booth at a nightclub (dark enough to thwart casual observers but not prying eyes). Second-weirdest was in a theatre, while watching The Hulk (a movie of which I'm still fond). I did get a blow job in my office once (from my then-girlfriend, not an intern), which was actually pretty great. Parks at various times, okay, but I'm not sure those even count as weird locations. Oh, and bar washrooms a couple of times, the weirdest of which was the ladies' room in a crusty punk bar in what I later discoveered was the only functioning stall (other clientele were not impressed).

On the west bank of the Willamette River in Portland two Sundays ago, just before noon, within view of a condo complex and a freighter docked by the grain elevators. This was glimpsed from a train window by me but not by my daughters, fortunately, or I'd have had some 'splaining to do. The most brazen display of public sex I've ever witnessed.

For the rest of the year guys in the dorm would give me random high-fives.

I had a guy walk in on me and my GF in her room (door was unlocked) while we were acrobatically going at it. He promptly slammed the door shut and left. She was mortified. I didn't know who he was.

Some time later I found myself talking to him at a party without knowing who he was. He kept saying "I know you look familiar, where do I know you from?" At one point I said that I was the ex-BF of [redacted], and he immediately got this look on his face that both of us could tell where it was he knew me from.

236: my vaguely similar experience (okay, not really similar, but I feel the need to atone for 183) was in the thin-walled dorm room I had for part of college. Apparantly my girlfriend and I didn't realize exactly how thin they were. And she was, um, noisy. Apparantly not only did everyone on the floor hear, but so did most of the entire floors immediately above and below. And this wasn't a one time thing--there were literally months of daily activity before someone tipped me off to the fact that dozens and dozens of people were listening to us every single time we had sex. (Well, listening to her screaming orgasms, mostly.) But it did give me a certain degree of cult-celebrity status. Which, like you, made me blush every time someone mentioned it. But all in all that wasn't a bad reputation to carry around.

Given the size of most airplane bathrooms, I suspect a certain disparity between the club's claimed and actual membership lists.

SCHUMER STATEMENT SUPPORTING JUDGE MUKASEY TO BE NEXT U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL

I will support Judge Michael Mukasey for Attorney General.

I have spent the last nine months doing everything I can to get new leadership at the Department of Justice and I believe the job will not be finished until we get a strong and independent Attorney General. I believe Judge Mukasey is that type of person. Should we reject him, it is almost certain that an acting, caretaker Attorney General will take office without the advice and consent of the Senate. Inevitably, that would enable those in this administration, who do not believe in the rule of law, and have done things that caused even former Attorney General Ashcroft to threaten resignation, to have the complete upper hand.

Only a strong and independent Attorney General can return the Justice Department to what it once was, and should always be. Under this administration, that nominee will certainly never share our views on issues like torture and wiretapping. The best we can hope for is someone who is independent, has integrity, will put rule of law first and, above all, will clean the stench of politicization out of the Justice Department. I believe Judge Mukasey will be that type of Attorney General.

This is an extremely difficult decision. When an administration, so political, so out of touch with the realities of governing and so contemptuous of the rule of law is in charge, we are never left with an ideal choice. Judge Mukasey is not my ideal choice. However, Judge Mukasey, whose integrity and independence is respected even by those who oppose him, is far better than anyone could expect from this administration. He is recommended by and reminds me of Jim Comey, another Bush nominee who--while he didn't agree with us on the issues--showed the kind of independence and integrity this department needs.

I would also like to say something about torture, particularly waterboarding. I deeply oppose it. I supported Senator Kennedy's amendment in 2006 and am a co-sponsor of his bill in this congress. Unfortunately, this nominee, indeed any proposed by President Bush will not agree with this. I am, however, confident that this nominee would enforce a law that bans waterboarding as I hope it will.

This afternoon, I met with Judge Michael Mukasey one more time. I requested the meeting to address, in person, some of my concerns. The Judge made clear to me that, were Congress to pass a law banning certain interrogation techniques, we would clearly be acting within our constitutional authority. And he flatly told me that the President would have absolutely no legal authority to ignore such a law, not even under some theory of inherent authority under Article II of the Constitution. He also pledged to enforce such a law and repeated his willingness to leave office rather than participate in a violation of law.

Judge Mukasey is a lawyer's lawyer. He will not leap to quick judgments. When we want him to do so, such as on torture, we will be disappointed. But when he resists those in the administration who want quick and facile answers, so they can get their way, so they can roll over civil liberties and blot out separation of powers, it is they who will be disappointed.

I realize that, should he become Attorney General, Judge Mukasey and I will disagree on many issues. I have told him that I will battle just as fiercely against him as I did against previous Attorney Generals when we disagree.

These are troubling times at the Justice Department. We cannot afford or allow the department to languish and limp along for the next 14 months. I deeply esteem those who believe the issue of torture is so paramount that Judge Mukasey's views on it should be the sole determinant of our vote. But I must respectfully disagree. The Justice Department is a shambles: politicized and demoralized. The belief and hope that Justice Mukasey, with his experience, independence and integrity, can restore the department motivates my vote.

This sounds a lot like Ogged's theory of in-stall blowjobs. I notice Brock's given the guy the seat, handlebars, and pedals; the woman is somehow supposed to raise and lower herself with all her weight on her arms stretched behind her to the handlebars.

Really, this can't be that hard. I think you'd fall over a few times, but I bet if they kept trying most people could eventually work out the balance.

And if you think it would be easier, the woman could put her feet directly on the pedals, and the man could just let his dangle. But then the woman has to pedal, too--I was trying for a more even division of labor.

Pedaling standing up is a fuck of a lot easier than trying to balance your feet on someone else's, even if they're standing stock still.

Of course, there's that whole numbing of the perineum problem to worry about, too, especially if the man is putting *all* his weight on the seat. Really, Brock, this is a completely ridiculous idea.

That part doesn't really sound hard to me at all, really. It's the balancing I worry about.

If the woman's going to be doing the penetrative work, she'll definitely need pedal leverage - which is unavailable.
This confirms my suspicions that sex on a motorcycle would be more practical than sex on a bicycle- with or without a banana seat.

439: I haven't really said anything, since way too much attention has already been paid to my ass here, but since there was some genuine concern and it's late Friday night I should go ahead and spill out details for the record. Basically, there's nothing wrong with me whatsoever, and you worryworts rushed me off to the doctor for absolutely no reason.

Bleeding: primarily internal hemorrhoids. They also found and removed several pre-cancerous polyps, which may have been an additional ancillary source. The doctor suggested that perhaps I eat too much red meat (as if there could be such a thing), and not enough fiber. Anyway, since there were sort of a lot of problems up there for someone my age, I'm supposed to repeat the procedure every few years now. Which blows, but probably blows less than colorectal cancer.

Weight loss and fatigue: not really sure. Still working on this. I don't think tapeworm has been ruled out (I'm totally serious.)

The doctor thinks the libido thing is just a natural byproduct of my dull and loveless marriage. He advised that if I adopt a mistress the problem will likely clear itself right up.

Back to biking:

Have you tried to maintain a consistent pedaling rhythm at low speeds? While constantly shifting your weight around? Not as easy as it sounds.

Try doing it when your feet aren't actually on the pedals themselves, but are resting on someone else's foot, while struggling with them for control of the handlebars, which you are using to support most of your weight as you raise and lower your torso.

Don't forget to worry about that center bar, while you're at it.

And for those of you who missed it, in 2005 Judge Coughenour sentenced millenium bomber Ahmed Ressam, and had this to say about the sentence:

The message I would hope to convey in today's sentencing is two-fold: First, that we have the resolve in this country to deal with the subject of terrorism and people who engage in it should be prepared to sacrifice a major portion of their life in confinement.

Secondly, though, I would like to convey the message that our system works. We did not need to use a secret military tribunal, or detain the defendant indefinitely as an enemy combatant, or
deny him the right to counsel, or invoke any proceedings beyond those guaranteed by or contrary to the United States Constitution.

I would suggest that the message to the world from today's sentencing is that our courts have not abandoned our commitmentto the ideals that set our nation apart. We can deal with the
threats to our national security without denying the accused fundamental constitutional protections.
Despite the fact that Mr. Ressam is not an American citizen and despite the fact that he entered this country intent upon killing American citizens, he received an effective, vigorous defense, and the opportunity to have his guilt or innocence determined by a jury of 12 ordinary citizens. Most importantly, all of this occurred in the sunlight of a public trial. There were no secret proceedings, no indefinite detention, no denial of counsel.

The tragedy of September 11th shook our sense of security and made us realize that we, too, are vulnerable to acts of terrorism. Unfortunately, some believe that this threat renders our Constitution obsolete. This is a Constitution for which men and women have died and continue to die and which has made us a model among nations. If that view is allowed to prevail, the terrorists will have won. It is my sworn duty, and as long as there is breath in my body I'll perform it, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

We will be in recess.

I have a recurring nightmare (it recurs whenever students hand in written work) where some Sunny State parent asks their kid, "So, what is Professor Gonerill teaching you about?" And they say, "Well. he says that the Division of Labor was invented during the industrial revolution after feudalism had ruled the earth for thousands of years. The purpose of the division of labor is to increase efficiency and by making the surplus worker, or proletarian, more exploited, so that communism can replace capitalism."

This is modern and republican fedualism. These American barons and lords of labor have probably more power and less responsibility than many an olden feudal lord. They close the factory or the mine, and thousands of workmen are forced into unwilling idleness. The capitalist can arbitrarily raise the price of necessaries, can prevent men's working, but has no responsibility, meanwhile, as to their starving. Here is "taxation without representation" with a vengeance. We have developed a despotism vastly more oppressive and more exasperating than that against which the thirteen colonies rebelled.

I may have missed someone addressing this already, but a recumbent bike is quite good for having sex on, and is in fact one of my couple of contributions to the locations list. It was mounted in one of those frames for use as an exercise bike, but it wouldn't have been much more of a nuisance in motion once we got enough speed to stay upright. The angles were all unusual, but very comfortable, and we used it quite a few times the year we had access to it, while housesitting.

My other favorite odd place was a projection booth, while working as a projectionist. In those days the college's closest approximation to a real movie theater had a pair of projectors requiring manual switching. Since my lady and I were usually both pretty quiet, we managed some very, very fine times, with the timing for whichever of us had the duty that weekend to make the reel changes making for good pacing. The booth itself had a weirdly thick comfortable padding layer under the carpeting, so we brought in roll-up mattress and bedding.

The Goldbergs were on tv in the early fifties.

Mostly you had the likes of George Burns or the Three Stooges or Jack Benny. You didn't need to be very sophisticated to know where the style came from but it wasn't trumpeted, and many people weren't very sophisticated, or they wouldn't have been watching in the first place.

It's telling that the classic "poor and urban" comedy of the fifties featured a couple of Irish Americans, Jackie Gleason and Art Carney.

505: I didn't know about The Goldbergs. This caught my eye:

In 1949 The Goldbergs moved to television with a new cast (except Molly), sponsored on CBS by General Mills' Sanka Coffee, which dropped the program in 1951 when Philip Loeb, then playing Jake, was blacklisted in the infamous Red Channels purge.

Just read that Gertrude Berg kept Loeb on at full salary, but he commited suicide in 1955. There's a clip of the show here (scroll down). The scene where the car breaks down reads like a transcript of my relationship. I'd never heard of this show before.

Does an exercise bike count? That seems simple. I have one right here, in fact.

I suppose if you really, really wanted to have sex on a bike, you might try out positions, balance, etc. fully clothed, then once you have that down add the actual penetration. But that takes the spontaneity out, no?

Aha:

Let's discuss the sex on a bicycle scene. I kept waiting for them to crash...

They did crash. She fell and got injured. It was [minor]. I was worried about that scene because it was all moving shots. From the beginning to the end, I did not want to have a static shot. I wanted to chase them--movement, constantly. It involved a lot of planning, and ordering the light equipment, and the days were getting shorter--we had to sneak as many shots as possible before it gets dark. Logistically, it was difficult. This shot--we had a technical problem. We lost three bicycles. We had to mount the moped on a trailer and shoot it. I should give it a try and see if it works.

And from other descriptions, that was just a handjob and a moped!

Every time I think about it, I start humming.

I've been shy about going to meetups (lurking is more my style). However, I just found out that one of my new co-workers is a recurring character in this melodrama, so I guess I've got an in.

This is an attempt to get me to do some free babysitting, isn't it?

this would be funny enough that I'm game. Let's do it.

Ogged, your baby lust is showing.

The deserted North end of Dunedin Beach in Florida, around 2PM. OK, so it wasn't all that unusual, but it was very very nice.
