K is for Kinky: What’s the Kinkiest Room in the House?

We haven’t gotten our laugh on for at least three days here at More Cowbell! It’s like a new record.

Today, we’re talking about SEX. (Are y’all awake now?)

And we’re notย just having this discussion because Hubby and I have thwarted TWICE this week. (Once when Babykins came home from school sick and jacked up the day off we’d scheduled, and once when our babysitting fell through.)

Well, OK…it’s a little bit because of that. Plus, if I’m not getting any, I at least want to hear other people’s stories.

And I know my posse: y’all have plenty to say on this topic that will make me laugh my a$$ off.

Seriously, hubby and I were talking about this. When you’re younger, or don’t have children running around, it’s easyย to find romance all over the house. The kitchen, bathroom, closets, etc. are all part of the Nookie Playground.

As most people get a bit older (and their backs start killing them), or have kids underfoot, they tend to gravitate to the bed, rather than the rug or the wall. It’s just the way of things, and part of why romance novels remain so popular. (Those characters do it everywhere.)

Here’s Bill Murray in Stripes to explain the potential of the kitchen:


So here’s what I want to know…purely for research of course:
What room do you think has the highest (or funniest) kink factor, and why?

Enquiring minds LOVE to know about these things here at More Cowbell! (I cannot wait to see your comments! Make me proud, people.๐Ÿ™‚ )

  1. I think the bathroom has the greatest potential for funny…simply because when you have a couple of naked bodies, soap and water… Well, those are just accidents and injuries begging to happen (yay for non-skid mats!). While nothing has ever been broken in my bathroom, a friend and her hubby did break off the soap/wash cloth holder thing on the wall.

    Kink factor would have to be the kitchen, in a buffet kind of way. And in a baby’s room (and the baby stays asleep – and is too young to know what’s going on if he or she wakes up)…as long as it has a rocker. I’ve always wanted to try something with a rocking chair (as long as there’s a guy involved, too).๐Ÿ™‚

  4. First, a huge hug and KUDOS for Jenny’s story yesterday. Communication for me was limited to iPhone and fat-finger syndrome won the WordPress sign-in battle. I cursed conceded, and pinged good Jenny vibes from the stars over Texas to California.

    Okay. So.

    The kinkiest room in the house. This is so not my type of comment fodder.

    I love Kristy’s idea about a rocking chair, but would amend to let that chair rock anywhere, in any room, so long as it isn’t backed up to a window. And, it isn’t privacy that concerns me. Flying, naked bodies through a glass window? Um. Might jack with an otherwise happy ending, and YKWIM.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for wording your question with the rather than your house. I think it would be really kinky to have sex in any room of a house during a party. It’s the getting caught factor that would heat my muffin. (Yes. I’m still working on clichรฉ twists. Yes. I chose the word muffin on purpose.) Under coats thrown on a bed, in a closet, underneath a skirted banquet table. I ruled out the Loo because of the come versus go factor. If others have an urgent need to “go”, it’s a potential glee-killer.

    Note to self: Always wear flirt skirts to parties.

    My first response is every room. Kinky can (and SHOULD) be found and expressed everywhere.

    Laundry room? Throw some heavy objects in the drier to get it hopping. Some models even come with a grind cycle, or so I hear. Kitchen? Pass me an ice cube please and bit of honey (going to have to try the spatchula thing too). Bathroom? Mine has been done, but what about the neighbor’s? ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol The yard, the driveway at midnight, closets, it all works. Well, maybe not in the dumbwaiter… Dining room? How sturdy is the table, and could it handle an impromptu wrestling match with massage oil?

    But, I think the patio with a Tantra Sex Chair, a sunset, drink and light music, and a slight chance of being caught offers up some of the kinkiest at-home experiences.

    Here is one not-home experience to try. Buy nosebleed tickets for a baseball game on a night when it is going to be very slow. It’s perfect if it’s a bit chilly, because nobody would think twice about a lady sitting on her man’s lap with a blanket around them to keep warm. Just sayin’… Wear a skirt and plan on hitting a Grand Slam.

    What a fun post! IYKWIM

            You need to know the water. I, for example, am heading to Cancun within the next few weeks. When you are out far enough to take full advantage of the waves, the sand moving around your feet won’t get up high enough to cause issues. I would do this when the water is clear enough to notice any critters taking an interest in your activities. There are certain times of the year when you get algal blooms in the water (Red Tide is one example).

            I wouldn’t frolic or romp in water where you can’t see what might be floating/swimming around you. Also be aware of scuba divers or curious snorkelers unless you want to charge them for the show. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Okay, I’ll bite and if any of you know how shy I can be, your mouths will drop open. The first time was in our closet after I showed off a extremely flattering new slack outfit. It didn’t stay on long. The upstairs bedroom balcony late at night under the stars was my next foray into “different.” And yes, Phil the swimming pool is divine esp. under the stars. But the one I really felt daring about was on a dark patio outside a restaurant at a country club where we’d just eaten! Why is it that men love to chance being caught?

    I seem to remember an episode of “Mad About You” (anyone watch that show?) where the grown son found out his parents got “busy” on the kitchen table (while he’s eating there, of course). When he protests this particular “TMI” his mother (in true Bronx-Jewish-mother style) says: “What, you think I didn’t wash it later?” My vote is for the kitchen.

    And I always wash the table. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Okay Jenny, this will have to be the second time to refer to sex in a response, once to Stacy Green on her birthday qualms. At present I am not attached. When I was I tried to avail every horizontal, and some vertical spaces in the house to have fun. As time has moved along, certain places were shelved for more conventional places. One thing did change, with maturity I lost the allure of young shiny things and found comfort, solace and love in the arms of partners nearer my age. And one kinda kinky thing the “Yeew” factor is gone.

  18. My hubz + I have… issues… unless we are on the floor. It’s the only way both parties are able to fulfill maximum expectation, and to our minds, it’s both or nobody, because YES. So there’s that.

    But you didn’t ask WHERE in the room… you asked WHICH room. Our home is somewhat open, in a kinda loft-style set-up wherein there are no doors on our bedroom. The stairs lead up right into our room, on one side of the house. Stairs on the OTHER side of the house lead directly into our son’s room. Between his room and ours is the only bedroom with doors, on both sides, so that our daughter has to go through one of our bedrooms to come-n-go, to-n-fro. Make sense? So sex in our own bedroom, on the floor no less, is scary enough without changing geography, thank you very much!

    However, we did take in an abused teen (family friend) for a year, and she shared a room with our daughter. Things got VERY uncomfortable and overly crowded, as though they weren’t already kinda strained, so my hubz and I did manage to make things… work out… in our minivan. Because it had been too long and I told him that if he didn’t make things happen for me I would no longer be responsible for my behavior. I think he made a wise decision! :p

    Many of the comments mention the porch as being the “IT” place, but that wouldn’t work for us, because our porch leads to our back yard, out of which springs an alley, at the end of which is the village police station. I can wave to the cops from my back door, so I’m thinking *NO* on that option!
