The 5 Most Popular Places to Have Sex Outside the Bedroom

Cosmo polled more than 1,500 women to find out the lustiest locales where they've gotten it on. Here, the top 5 places outside the bedroom where people have sex.

5. In the woods
49 percent of women have had sex here!
Wanna try? Your two biggest risks are bugs and poison ivy. To fend off bugs, spray yourself with insect repellent beforehand…just not on your neck, breasts, or anywhere else your man may kiss or lick. As for poison ivy, remember: If there are leaves of three, let it be.

4. In the pool or a body of water
54 percent of women have had sex here! Wanna try? Ironically, water sex can actually dry up your natural lubrication. Use a silicone-based lube (which is waterproof) and then try out Cosmo's Aqua Kama Sutra positions, like Tawdry Tube.

3. In your childhood bedroom
65 percent of women have had sex here! Wanna try? If your parents are in the next room, keep quiet with a sex position that is still ultra-pleasurable but won't shake the headboards. Try Soft Rock or Wow-Him Powwow, in which you are gently rocking instead of thrusting.

2. In a car
80 percent of women have had sex here! Wanna try? People often think the backseat is best for car sex. But there's not much leg room. Recline the passenger seat instead and try a girl-on-top position.

And the number one place people have sex outside the bedroom...
1. In the shower or bathtub
82 percent of women have had sex here! Wanna try? Take turns lathering each other up and teasing yourselves into a frenzy before going all the way. Have two, warm fluffy towels handy - or one big one that you can wrap yourselves in - to keep the comfy after-sex buzz going.
