Listening to the radio on my to work this morning , I heard the DJ telling a story about a couple that was arrested for having sex on a picnic table at a local park. Big deal, I thought; happens all the time. Perhaps, some may recall the bright beam of the police officers flash light telling them to move on. Unfortunately, these folks chose broad daylight to relieve their tension, in a park with children playing near by-- really? It’s one of those moments where the eloquent word ‘eww’ comes to mind; truly disturbing.
Out of control desire is one of life’s most thrilling emotions. Once the proverbial ball begins to roll we often throw caution to the wind and let go of our inhibitions. ‘What if someone were to see’ can be frightfully arousing. For others, knowing that someone is watching is even more exciting. Allowing ourselves to get lost in passion is a gift we give to ourselves and our partner, if others happen to get a free preview by our’ lost in the moment carelessness’ or an intentionally planned interlude, so be it. Howvever, next time the curtain goes up (or they’re drawn open) it is perhaps best to know your audience ahead of time :-)
