My boyfriend wants to go camping and prefers to sleep in a hammock instead of a tent. He made a joke about using the hammock for weird sex but now I’m like, hmmmmmm. Do you have any tips on actually having sex in a hammock?

Sarah: Very carefully? No, in all seriousness, you could use the hammock to get some leverage when you’re on top or do the spooning sex thing, but the key is that at least one partner has to have full body contact with the hammock for stability. Also make sure that your ropes are strong enough to handle the bouncing and movement without breaking, because nothing ruins the mood like crashing down from your sexy tree perch all horny with nowhere to fuck but in a pile of pine needles. Just kidding, nothing ruins the sexy vibe like trying to have SEX IN A HAMMOCK! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?!?!
Debby: As an enjoyer of hammocks, I can tell you that there are many different kinds of hammocks so it really depends what kind of hammock you’ll be sleeping in, how big it is (one vs. two person), the material its made of (net vs. a fabric like canvas), and so on. It also depends what kind of sex you’re into. One of you could be in the hammock and the other outside of it, kneeling and performing oral sex. If it’s large enough for two, and not made of net, you could possibly try intercourse (especially side by side position) but don’t be surprised if it doesn’t live up to whatever hype he or you is building up; after all, it’s a hammock. You could also just leave the hammock, roll out a blanket, and have whatever kind of sex you’d like to have on the ground.
