In the movies, car sex always looks really hot. There's the steamy, passionate, hand-thrown-against-the-window car sex Jack and Rose have on Titanic, the spontaneous car make out scene in The Virgin Suicides, and the tender moment between Lloyd and Diane after they have car sex in Say Anything. And, miraculously, all of the participants always look super comfortable.
But how much do these movie scenes mimic real life? We talked to people who've actually had sex in cars, and it's pretty clear that movies have led us astray. While car sex can be hot, passionate, and fun, it can also be pretty awkward. Most people struggle to find a position that works while cramped in the back (or front) seat of a car. Plus, there's always the worry that someone will catch you in the act (just FYI, public sex is illegal in most states).
Still, there are tips and tricks that people have learned along the way to make car sex less awkward and to lower the risk of getting caught.
