Bathroom sex refers to engaging in sexual activities in the bathroom or toilet, either private or public. Bathroom sex occurs in many parts of the world and in many places, including stores, hotels, bars, restaurants, airplanes, and universities. Bathroom sex is depicted in many films. According to anthropologist Helen Fisher, when a person is having sex in the bathroom the bathtub with another person, they have removed their “defenses”.
Therefore, every touch during this time becomes a lot more intimate. In Japan, love hotels are sometimes built with specially designed bathrooms to facilitate bathroom sex. West, people in these hotels often engage in bathroom sex “with the tap on”. Bathroom sex is observed in the military also. According to Gay Men in Modern Southern Literature by William Mark Poteet, some members of the military have gay sex in bathrooms to break the military moral code or, as he describes it, “the heterosexual masculine fortress of pure and decent sex.
During the 1980s, when homosexuality was still viewed negatively in American society, many gay men found bathroom sex an easy way to have sex. Journalist Michael Koretzky wrote in The Independent Florida Alligator, “athroom sex is one of the most discreet ways for gay men to meet other gay men. Gay sex was common in the bathrooms of the University of Florida in the 1980s. Alligator in its 26 January 1989, issue published photos of holes drilled in stall walls of bathrooms there.
There were two types of holes — large and small. In Europe and the United States, making a sound by knocking one’s foot against the floor is a code for requesting sex in public bathrooms. The initiator knocks his foot under the wall that divides two toilet stalls so that the person in the adjacent stall can see it. If the second person responds by making knocks in a similar fashion, the first person extends his foot farther into the other person’s stall. Specific names are often used to designate the various sex positions used for bathroom sex. In the “toilet rider” position, a man sits on the toilet lid and the passive partner sits over him, facing either backwards or forwards.
The “Bathroom Bliss” position involves one of the partners sitting on the side of the tub while the other partner stands on one leg and puts the other leg over the active partner’s shoulder, facilitating oral sex. There is another sex position called “Man on the ledge”, in which the man leans against the bathtub edge with the help of his arms. With the man fixed in position, the other partner sits on top of him. Edmund White’s semi-autobiographical novel The Beautiful Room Is Empty provides a positive portrayal of homosexual sex in a college bathroom. Bathroom sex heats up at eateries around the city.
