Dare...To Have Sex Anywhere But In Bed!

The front cover of the book

“Dare…To Have Sex Everywhere but in Bed!” is a Dare… series book sold by Hunter House. This is a pretty small book at about five inches tall, three inches wide, and including 118 pages split into 8 different chapters. The book is softcover and includes black and white pages on the inside. Aside from the cover, there are no illustrations in the book. The book is written by Marc Dannam. The front of the book shows a couple “seemingly” running out of a barn with chicken feathers around them. It’s a chibi-style illustration, and it looks really cute. As long as you can hide the cover, though, this book is pretty discreet to read in public.

The neat thing about the Dare… series is that it was originally written in French. The book was then translated by Yvonne K. Fulbright. The translation is slightly awkward in a few places, but it’s nothing horrible, and if you’re absorbed in the reading, I doubt it’s anything that you’d even notice.

This book is just basically a large compilation of all of the different places you can have sex in public. It doesn’t tackle the specific laws or areas that you can visit, but it does give you some thoughts you should have in mind when picking out a place to try public sex. The book attempts to list all of the different places you could to have sex. (Some are inside your own house as well.) I wouldn’t say that all of the ideas are new to me, but a lot of them are presented with some ideas that I never would have thought about on my own.

One of the reasons I really like this book is the fact that it isn’t a do-over of like six other sex books that happens a lot when it comes to sex books. We end up with about ten different books on safe sex and around 80 on sex positions. This book is pretty unique in the fact that it focuses purely on places, aside from a bed, to have sex. Does it usually give sex positions? No. And that’s a good thing. It gives you the information you need to think ahead for your plan of public sex.

The book is divided into 8 different chapters. These chapters are divided into “subchapters” that list more specific places than the main chapter title lists. The eight chapters are “In Your Bed, Nevertheless”, “At The House”, “At Work”, “In Town”, “Evening Parties”, “On Vacation”, “In the Countryside”, and “At the Beach or in the Mountains”. Each chapter focuses on talking about the risks

The first two chapters focus on things to do inside your own home while the other ones talk about being outside the home. The first chapter is all about moving your bed mattress into other rooms as well as roleplaying and dressing up your own bedroom to feel like a new place. The second chapter is all about things like the kitchen table or the bathroom sink.

Some of the inner pages

Each idea, after the couple paragraphs that describe it and what you need to keep in mind, has a neat little “summary” area. This area includes: Difficulties (what problems might you have?), Preparation (What needs to be done in advance), Cost (if it costs anything monetarily), Pleasure (Quickie or longer session), Risks (What to assume could happen), Inconveniences (What problems might pop-up during the act).

To put that system into action, for the Beach:
Difficulties: Finding the right time and finding a private place that is adequate distance from the beach
Preparation: Get it while you can.
Cost: A vacation to the beach; it could be expensive.
Pleasure: Most of the time, it’s not what you hoped for. If you get lucky, it can be very agreeable.
Risks: Almost none.
Inconveniences: The water defeats the slipperyness

Some of the chapters will mention videos or books that show a couple having sex in the recommended location. American-wise, these aren’t nearly as helpful since they appear to be French titles. You could find them if you wanted, but it’s nothing like mentioning 9 1/2 Weeks to people in the United States. They’re titles I’ve honestly never heard of. Along with this, some of the quotations in the book seems to come from sources that I’ve never heard of. They, also, are a bit rough in translation, but the main idea is easy to find. The quotations are usually just explicit, short “true erotica” about a person experiencing sex in that place.

Something I did enjoy was the fact that most of the places mentioned are free or very-low-cost. Aside from swinger clubs or places like museums, the places mentioned are all pretty much free. The book also stresses the importance of keeping it private since non-consentually involving others is just morally wrong. It also stresses the importance of keeping it away from child-friendly areas, and I feel like the book took a good look at issues that go with having public sex.

I wish this had been re-written to improve legal laws about being caught having sex in public. I’m fully aware that it’d be too hard to do (would limit the scope of the book as well as different states have different laws), but I feel like it’d be much easier to know about having public sex when I knew whether it’d be a slap on the wrist or six years jail time.

Overall? If you like having sex in public, this book is going to give you a lot of great ideas as well as help you think through the ideas you already have. Don’t think it’s going to be giving you sex positions, but instead, think of it as your “guidebook to public sex”. It’s lacking a bit in the law department, but it still provides a good guidebook for thinking ahead before your public encounters. You could even make a game and choose to try and make it through the full book. Thanks to Hunter House for sending me Dare…To Have Sex Everywhere but in Bed!
