Sex Advice from People Riding the Subway in Their Underwear
Q: What's the proper etiquette for hitting on someone whose pants are already off? A: Half the work’s already been done for you.
By Amanda Green
Why are flash mob and Improv Everywhere participants better in bed?
They’re willing to try new things and don't mind putting themselves out there. Open-minded people are better in bed.
How did you choose what underwear to wear on the No Pants Subway Ride?
Last year I had no idea what to wear, so I put a lot of thought into it this year. I think that boxers are cheating, since they’re basically shorts. I went with boxer-briefs with penguins on them. I think they’re appropriate with all the snow out, and they’re fun.
Are Improv Everywhere events a good place to pick up girls/guys?
Yes! You already have something in common, and you know they have an outgoing personality. Strangely, people are more relaxed when they’re not wearing pants. They’re definitely a lot easier to approach.
Sex with my long-term partner is getting boring. What are some easy ways to make it fun?
I'm a big fan of outfits, toys, or doing something you know you shouldn't. Let me in on a dirty secret, like that you’re going commando for the day. Or send me a picture of a new toy you just bought. Even texting dirty while together in a public place can be a lot of fun.
My roommate has walked in on my boyfriend and me having sex twice now. I'm beginning to think she's doing it on purpose. How should I bring it up?
I’d bring it up casually in a joking matter. You don't want to come off as aggressive if it was on accident. Maybe stress that she should knock first before coming in, or even resort to the sock on the doorknob if it turns into a big problem.
The idea of making a sex tape with my boyfriend really turns me on. How can I convince him to do it?
Tell him it’s something you’ll watch while you’re alone and wanting him. Also, sex tapes are fun to watch while having sex. He really shouldn't need too much convincing.
I recently slept with a guy who was more groomed down there than I am, and he seemed grossed out by me. Do two people have to be on the same pubic-hair wavelength to make it work?
If you're in a relationship, you just have to communicate what you want. If a girl’s going down on me, I’m going to try to please her with grooming and vice-versa. If one person is asking too much, maybe a compromise can be made. Example: if the girl doesn't want to go completely bare, perhaps she could have a small landing strip.
My new girlfriend got pissed that I'm tagged in pictures with my ex-girlfriend on Facebook, especially since my ex and I are on good terms. She's convinced I must not be over the relationship. What should I do about it?
Stress that there is nothing wrong with being friends with your ex. Ending things on good terms is a lot better than having a bitter ex. Emphasize that, clearly, you have chosen your current girlfriend. You wouldn't be with her if you still wanted to be with your ex.
I'm really into this girl I'm seeing, but she never goes down on me. She feels it's degrading. Should I just drop it, or is there a way we can compromise?
Compromise. Suggest trying to 69, since it's more mutual.
