It can be difficult to have sex without your parents knowing, especially if they like to keep an eye on what you’re up to. But don’t worry! People have been doing this for generations, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do it as well. You’ll need to think outside the box, be discreet, and plan ahead of time. Continue reading for a handy guide to covert sexual activity planning and execution.
Finding a Place and Time
1. Do it when your parents are not present. Know their schedules and make plans for when they will be gone for at least a few hours. Before you get too excited, make sure there’s a big enough window. Pay attention for mentions of date nights, weekend events, and movie plans. These are usually sufficient for 3-5 hours of parental absence, during which you can plan your own secret rendezvous. You’ve struck gold if they ever leave town and leave you in charge.
2. If your partner’s parents are more open-minded or leave the house more frequently, spend as much time as possible with them. This is most likely the simplest option.
If your parents won’t let you go to a partner’s house, you can always lie and say you’re going to a friend’s house or out shopping; however, this may cause more problems in the long run.
3. Take advantage of the opportunity. You never know when a perfect opportunity will present itself. If you and your partner are eager to go, you should be ready to seize any opportunities that come your way.
4. Take a car. It is possible to have sex in a car if you can find a secluded parking spot. This option may be a little tight, but it is certainly doable. Try pulling over on a country road if you live in a rural area. On weekends and after hours, business parks are typically fairly deserted. You can also try to hide in plain sight in a large parking lot with a lot of other cars.
Avoid parking near structures or businesses. Otherwise, keep an eye out for security cameras and read any signs that indicate you’re not supposed to be there. You don’t want to attract the attention of police officers or security guards!
Remember that many public places are heavily patrolled at night, when people have less reason to come and go. If this is your only option, try to do it during the day to avoid attracting the attention of cops, park rangers, and security guards.
5. Discuss alternative options with mutual friends. You might be able to find some privacy at a social gathering or at the home of someone whose parents are less strict than yours. It’s a long shot, but it’s worth investigating.
6. Experiment with being outside. Remote natural settings, such as parks and forests, are typically good places to spend time alone. Pack a picnic basket with food, drinks, and blankets, and go hiking in search of secluded spots. Choose a location that is both safe and private.
If you already know of a good location, feel free to take your romantic liaison there. Perhaps your neighbourhood has a “make-out spot,” or you know of an old treehouse in the woods or a quiet place where no one goes.
Check to see if your partner is willing to rough it. Not everyone feels at ease in the great outdoors. Make your intentions clear ahead of time.
7. Look for another indoor location. If you can, book a low-cost motel room. Bring your partner to an empty or low-traffic room at school, work, or another community building. Perhaps you have the key to a storage room at your school or workplace, or you are aware of a corner in the church basement that no one ever checks. Experiment with thinking outside the box!
8. Be aware of the dangers. It is illegal to have sex in many public and outdoor areas. If you are legally an adult, it is illegal to have sex with a minor (someone under the age of 16, 17, or 18 in the United States). Make sure you understand the implications! If you are caught violating these laws, you may be fined and/or imprisoned, as well as legally labelled a sex offender.
Check the legal consent age in your state or country. If you live in the United States, the age of consent may be 16, 17, or 18, with possible “close-in-age exceptions.” If your state does not have any close-in-age exceptions, this means that having sex with anyone under the age of consent is illegal – even if you are 16 and your partner is 15, or if you are 15 and your partner is also 15, unless it is legal in some states if the partners are legally married.
Over the years, many adolescent lovers have been labelled sex offenders. This label will follow you for the rest of your life; you must register as a sex offender whenever you move to a new address, and you may be barred from living within a certain radius of a school. Formal paraphrase Whether the law is just or unjust, you should be aware of the consequences of your actions!
1. Speak with your partner. You should be prepared to have sex as well as accept the consequences. Make certain that you and your partner are on the same page about everything. It may feel awkward at first, but you’ll need to discuss sex in order to figure out the best way to do it secretly. You must communicate if you are to keep your parents from finding out.
Find a discreet way to discuss these issues. You should not discuss your plans via text if your parents read your messages. You can talk if you go to the same school. Consider developing a “code” for referring to sexual things so that you can make more open plans.
2. Mentally prepare yourself. Lying may appear to be easier than telling your parents right away, but it may require a lot of quick thinking and mental energy to pull off. Consider your options. Plans, alibis, codes, and cover-ups are all part of the game when you’re sneaking around. Some people are more natural at this than others. If you want to do it right, there is no room for error. If you don’t, you might as well tell your parents right now!
3. Determine an alibi for each encounter. Even if you don’t think you’ll need it, do it anyway. As your parents leave for dinner and a movie, tell them you intend to spend the evening doing homework or watching television. If you’re going to a social gathering that your parents might not approve of, plan a more wholesome activity for the night, such as a study group or a sleepover. Make use of your imagination, but be prepared to back up any claims you make.
Take care with what you say. Your parents may know more than you think, and you don’t want to give them reason to suspect you. Be aware that parents frequently converse with one another.
Make sure your storey corresponds to the stories of other people who will ostensibly be present. If you say you’ll be sleeping over at a friend’s house, make sure that A) your parents will not question your friend’s parents about it, or B) your friend’s parents will cover for you.
4. Maintain discretion. Secrets should only be shared with those who have a need to know – so be cautious about who you tell. This also entails concealing your tracks in order to avoid detection. Don’t leave your diary, a gift from your partner, a pack of condoms, or any other kind of evidence lying around.
5. Keep the volume low. You can’t expect to keep this a secret if you make a clumsy commotion every time. Explain to your partner why you must remain silent. You might even be able to get away with it in a house full of people if you learn to do your business quickly and quietly.
6. Consider sexual activities that go beyond full-fledged intercourse. Mutual masturbation, oral sex, and other non-penetrative sex acts are much more difficult to conceal. You may come across a number of unexpected opportunities for a quick session when you wouldn’t normally be able to go all-out.
1. Understand the dangers. Unprotected sex can result in an unwanted pregnancy, a variety of sexually transmitted infections, general health issues, and psychological consequences. Sex is fun, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility: to your body, your partner, your family, and your future. Read up on safe sex online to ensure you’re doing everything possible.
DO NOT SKIP PROTECTION FOR THE FEAR OF YOUR PARENTS FINDING OUT. A surprise pregnancy or STD is far more difficult to explain than a box of condoms or a pack of pills.
2. Make certain that you are prepared. It is critical that you are both mentally and physically prepared for sex. Sex is an essential part of being human, and it has the power to alter your perception of the world. Make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. Are you truly ready for joyful, responsible sex, or are you reacting to peer pressure and external expectations? Perform some soul-searching.
3. Use safety precautions. If you want to avoid both pregnancy and STDs, it is best to use a combination of methods. Condoms are available at the majority of drugstores, grocery stores, and convenience stores. If you go to Planned Parenthood or another clinic, you will be given a bag of free condoms. If you plan to be sexually active, talk to your doctor about birth control pills and other long-term solutions. It may be awkward to discuss this at first, but everyone does it – and it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Free condoms are available to the public at clinics and doctors’ offices, the Department of Health and Social Services, and some schools – contact the school nurse for more information. Put them in your locker or any other secure hiding place away from prying eyes. Keep more condoms than you think you’ll need, but don’t use them after the expiration date on the package.
“Pulling out” is not a foolproof method of avoiding pregnancy. Condoms are not 100% effective, but they are far safer than the alternative.
An STD (sexually transmitted disease) can be dangerous to your health and can follow you for the rest of your life. Consider who you’re having sex with, as well as who they’ve had sex with. Communicating with your partner about your sexual history is an important part of sexual responsibility.
4. Consult a gynaecologist. All sexually active females should see a gynaecologist once a year for cancer screenings, STD screenings, and birth control. Most young women have no reason to see a gynaecologist before becoming sexually active, so it may be difficult to gain your parents’ support without blowing your cover. However, this is an important aspect of safe sex, and making an appointment is well worth your time.
5. Speak with an adult. If you can’t talk about sex with your parents, consider other adults in your life who you feel comfortable approaching with sensitive questions. Speak with a doctor, a teacher, a trusted family member (brother, sister, aunt, uncle), or a counsellor. If you can’t think of anyone, go to your nearest Planned Parenthood clinic and schedule a consultation with a clinician. Sex is a big responsibility to take on on your own, so seeking advice from someone more experienced may be beneficial.
Depending on your relationship with them, an older sibling can be a great person to talk to. They’ve had sex before, but they also understand where you’re coming from. Before proceeding, take their advice into account.
6. Think about telling your parents. They might be more accommodating and understanding than you think. You will always be at risk of being caught if you sneak around and try to have sex without your parents knowing. Consider whether that is a risk you are willing to take.
Discuss your decision with your parents in a confident, mature manner. If you can explain why you’re ready for sex, they may give you the freedom to make your own decision.
Determine whether your partner’s parents will be able to handle the news. If this is the case, speak with them. When someone’s parents are aware of what is going on, things usually go much more smoothly.
