Guest Room Nookie

Guest Blogger-Avery Flynn

Hi all! I’m Charly, Rebecca’s assistant. We thought it’d be fun to do a ‘Romance: The Good, the Bad, and the Disastrous’ theme with guest bloggers throughout the summer months. Every Monday and Thursday, we’ll have a guest blogger talk about fun stuff like horrible dates, good dates, etc. Some bloggers will have a contest, and some won’t – it’s totally up to them. If there is a contest, I’ll randomly draw a winner from the post comments, send the winner’s email address to the guest blogger, and they’ll take it from there. Rebecca will jump in and blog when she can. For now, enjoy as we play!


Hey all! *waves* I’m so excited to get to hang out with y’all today. When Rebecca said I could write about anything, my mind immediately went to two things: coffee and sex.Hey, I never said I was one of Rebecca’s classy friends.

But then my doctor lost her mind when I honestly answered how much coffee I drink (Note to self: Never tell your doctor the truth about coffee again.) so I ended up cutting back to only a few cups a week. Let’s have a moment of silence about that, shall we? *Silence. Thinks of hot dudes.*

Oh yeah, so that totally brings me to sex. *Insert dirty, dirty thoughts here.* But the e-mail about this guest post said it could be funny or sweet or heartwarming and well…sex didn’t seem like the right topic so I was banging my head trying to think about what to write about because unless you want to talk about the wonders of yoga pants, I’m kinda boring (Read: Very boring).

Then I read a post at Jezebel asking if it was okay to have sex when you’re an overnight guest at someone’s house. Now I’m not talking about getting it on in the closet during a New Year’s Eve party or getting some nookie while you’re sharing a guest room with other people beyond those you are nookie-ing it up with, this is straight up in a guest room with the door locked and somewhat quietly giving each other the special hug. (Note to self: Writing hot sex scenes has ruined me for talking about sex and not using THE WORDS.)

I couldn’t get over how many commenters at what I consider to be a pretty sex-positive website were adamant about a no sex in the guest room rule unless it is specifically okayed in advance by the home owner. I don’t get this. They change the sheets after they visit, right? I’m assuming the couple (or more) boning are not trying to set a scream-a-thon record. I’m assuming these are all consenting adults behind a closed door. I just don’t get it.

  1. Depends on WHOSE guest room it is. Do I care if my friends are gettin’ it on while they’re in my house? Naw. Mainly because when our kids were younger and we were visiting each other (from out-of-town – not just stoppin’ by) we had an unspoken “shift change plan” when it came to supervising the kiddos so that the other parental unit could…. “disappear” for a bit. You wanted a “funny”? One time we were across country at our friends’ house visiting, and they were refereeing all the boys out back, and when we (finally) came out, my friend looked at me and said, “Oh. My. GAWD!” To which The Man just looked at her and replied, “Hey. I didn’t have to hurry so I was damn well gonna enjoy it!” LOL!

    Now if it was my parents in my guest room? [clapping hands over ears singing out, “la la la la la la I don’t wanna hear it la la la”]

      HA! I’m with you on that!

  2. Stacey says:

    My question is…..why not? I have had some of the best sex in other people’s homes! Lol. I think it has something to do with the thrill of getting caught and being a little naughty! I get it whenever I can and I would not forbid anyone else to get their freak on either! With that said, BE QUIET! I always wash my sheets in hot water anyways, so have fun when your in my house!


    1. Avery Flynn says:

      Yes! I’m with you.

  3. Chrissy says:

    I think it is totally fine to use a guest room for nookie. I don’t understand why it wouldn’t be. And I think it would be awkward to ask permission first. I mean we are all adults, right?

  4. Audra shondel says:

    I’d say it’s a no-no

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      But whyyyyyyyyyyy? *yes, I’m whining. :)*

  5. Joyce Reece says:

    As long as you keep the noise down, I do not care. Just be ready for s lot of teasing the next morning.

  6. Judy Contino says:

    I think it’s crazy that people would object to guests having sex in their guest room. If they are all consenting adults and don’t have a scream-a-thoj, I see nothing wrong with it. When the urge strikes, you gotta go with it!

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      A scream-a-thon, oh I am totally stealing that line!

  7. Martha Lawson says:

    No sex in the guest room!!

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      *gasps* But …. but… but….

  8. Theresa says:

    I don’t think there should be any issues as long as everyone is consenting adults and keeps the noise level to a respectable level.

  9. Delene says:

    I was never really comfy even after I got married doing “it” in my folks house, so it was usually a playdate for Gram with my kiddos while we “visited” a local motel 😉 If I had visitors as long as they weren’t banging the headboard against my wall it didn’t bother me.

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      That is hysterical!

  10. Robie dewitt says:

    It doesn’t bother me unless it is the kids or granddaughter.

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      I can understand the weirdness of that.

  11. Candace Fox says:

    I don’t care what they do in the spare bedroom. As for me, well I am too prime and proper to do that. I would be horrified if anyone knew what was happening…LOL

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      “prim and proper” I don’t believe that for a second!

  12. Bridget Clay says:

    Wow…the rules we put on each other…wouldn’t even think about if my guests had sex in the privacy of the room I provided or even when I was a guest…for me uhhhh….many times as a guest. The thrill is how quiet could we be while in the midst of the best time ever at the moment at least. 🙂

    1. Avery Flynn says:

      Oh the adult version of the quiet game, eh?

  13. Bridget Clay says:

    Oh and love that you have guest authors blogging….new opportunities of checking out there work…now going to check out Avery Flynn. 🙂 I love alpha heroes…the best!!

  14. Karen Gagnon says:

    If they are quiet it’s not a big deal since I’ll be washing the sheets after they leave either way. =D

  15. Rhonda Campbell says:

    As long as they are quite and don’t break the bed it’s all good! When I was with my ex-boyfriend he had a friend stay over and you would have thought someone was killing someone. I was to afraid to get up and go to the bathroom. The next morning the coffee table and lamp were broke… Needless to say they didn’t keep it in the spare room.

  16. Mary Preston says:

    I have to say no, because I had a friend over who was a screamer. I think the children were scarred for life.

  17. SuziQ says:

    I would be embarrassed if asked that question! If I can’t hear you I don’t care what happens. But…. I almost never did that in anyone’s guest room. We just got a room

  18. bn100 says:

    not okay
