The Wildest Coachella Sex Stories — You're Welcome

When you think Coachella, you probably think of the desert, flower crowns, glitter makeup, fanny packs, Beyoncé’s iconic performance… and, maybe, sex. Coachella has a reputation for being a “hookup festival,” and data backs that up. A survey by sex toy retailer Lovehoney found that Coachella was the second most popular festival to have sex at: 14.3% of festival-goers had had sex at Coachella (Lollapalooza came in first with 23%).
Of festival sex enthusiasts, 29% had sex in a camping area, 15% had sex in a car, 13% had sex in the crowd, and 12.5% did so in a "quiet spot in the field." One Coachella hookup spot, the Ferris wheel, even made it into Insecure Season 3. IRL festival hookups are usually a lot less sexily-lit (unfortunately), though many are just as public. So if you're headed to the festival, or want some inspo for public romantic rendezvous in general, we've combed through some of the best Coachella sex stories on Reddit for you.

We go at it with at least 15 people within 15 meters of us. I could see and hear the tent rustling as the airbed was rubbing against the corners.

"Ex gf and I were camping at Coachella, tiny insta-tent made for two, barely at that. You can't stand up in it. She had recently got on a new birth control which made her horny as hell. It was around 7 a.m. Our campsite had at least ten of my friends there, but nobody was awake, or making noise anyway.

"I woke up with a hard on and she could see it. She starts stroking my inner thigh and biting her lip. I was pent up from the past few days of no action and really wanted to, but there were a lot of people nearby. She keeps teasing my crotch, despite me somewhat resisting. Kisses on the neck, breathing into and nibbling my ear...

"Finally, with a smouldering look, she says, 'if you f*** me right now, I'll give you the best sex of your life' and starts making out with me. At this point I'm hard, and we go at it with at least 15 people within 15 meters of us. I could see and hear the tent rustling as the airbed was rubbing against the corners. At one point I swear I heard some chick in the distance say 'they're f***ing!'"

I saw a couple doing it behind a tent. I wondered why they just didn’t go in their tent, but quickly realized it was being occupied by another couple enjoying themselves.

They were having sex between hundreds of people and sat right under the light pole.

“Just right before Beyoncé set, everyone looked tired and sat in the back waiting (including me and my bf). A couple in front of us were sitting down, the girl was on top and hugging the guy as she’s slowly moving back and forth. They were having sex between hundreds of people and sat right under the light pole.” - cookiethepug

I finally had sex on the Ferris wheel. Obviously it could only last a couple minutes but it was amazing. The feeling you get after walking off the wheel... indescribable.

"After 4 years I finally did just that [had sex on the Ferris wheel]. Obviously it could only last a couple minutes but it was amazing. The feeling you get after walking off the wheel and seeing everyone who has no idea what you did... Indescribable." - Crawseven6

In 2016, my friend and I saw a couple in the far right corner of the outdoor stage in a blanket doing it during ASAP’s set

We saw a couple getting it on in the open against the shower fence in the campground. We clapped for them and congratulated them as we walked by.

My husband and I saw a guy jerkin' it at Caribou... I looked over at my husband and said, 'Wow, he must really like Caribou.'
