Christmas is a time for giving, for receiving and for making merry. It's about shopping until you drop, catering for too many people and for having far too many friends and relatives packed inside a house for long periods of time.
But what about finding a little private time to do the dirty? Not so easy when every available space in the house is occupied by a sleeping bag or blow-up mattress.
We've got some interesting and hopefully useful suggestions for having sneaky sex during the chaotic festive season.
Of course, there are a few criteria required for a suggestion to qualify. The first rule is that they are sneaky, which means that you would run minimal risk of being walked in on by your little niece/nephew/the neighbours if you were to take up the suggested spot.
The second rule is that they have to be in places where you are both able to manoeuvre sufficiently to enjoy yourselves. And lastly, noise levels need to be kept to a minimum which means nothing is allowed to squeak or rattle and neither of you is allowed to make use of your vocal chords above a whisper.
Now that we've got that out of the way, here's our sneaky sex suggestion list.
In the dead of night, as quiet as mice
If you're visiting family and sleeping on a blow-up mattress, this one could get tricky. In fact, the noise factor comes into play in a big way here — not much sneaky to that. So if you can get the job done without moving much, kudos to you.
In the broom cupboard
If only. This could work if the broom cupboard located near to you is the size of a small elephant. It needn't be a cupboard for brooms. So get creative and see what little hole you can find.
The double act
Take a shower together, and well, one thing could lead to another. It also doubles up as a cleaning session. Genius!
Go, go garage grunge
Sneak off to the garage while everyone else is inside or at the pool and have yourselves a romp in the car. The car is slightly more soundproof, so not only will you have added suspension to enjoy yourselves in comfort, here's a place where things can get a little louder.
Walk the rolling hills
Have to have each other right away? Well, now's your time to go for a nice walk. Make sure you bring along a picnic blanket and good luck finding a comfortable spot where no one can see you.
Wrap up those presents
Well, we've all got to do it, don't we? The trick is to make sure that you get everyone else out the room using present wrapping as an excuse and then to get down to business in an orderly manner. At double time, mind you. You wouldn't want cousin/niece/neighbour walking in while your midway through would you?
