You are camping and all relaxed being away from the stresses of work and home. The stars are out, the campfire is crackling, and romance is in the air. You want to have a little private time with your partner, but the kids or neighbors are around. What are you to do? Get it on! These tips will help you to enjoy some private couple time without anyone noticing.
Tips on How to Get It On While Camping
Wear the Kids Out – If you have children that sleep like the dead, then you are all set to go once they fall asleep. However, if you are like many of us, your kids rouse at loud noises. You can keep things quiet, but make sure the kids are in a deep sleep by wearing them out with lots of daytime activities like swimming, hiking, and biking. Just make sure you do not wear yourself so you have enough energy to enjoy each other. You might also consider an early morning rendezvous if your kids are hard to wake up.
Use White Noise – Many camping units, like a pop-up trailer, do not afford any privacy. Put on a fan, air conditioner, radio or white noise machine to drown out any noises you might make.
Go to the Vehicle – Are the kids asleep in the tent or trailer? Reenact your early days and get it on in the car.
Set up an Extra Tent – Have an extra tent on hand? Set it up to be a multi-use space. It can be used as a changing room. The kids can play in it during the day or watch a movie inside in the evening, leaving the trailer available. Or you can sneak way to the tent once the kids are asleep in the other tent or trailer.
Swap – Go camping with friends or family and swap. KIDS, not partners! Take turns hosting a movie night at each other’s campsite or keep all the kids busy with games or crafts while the others sneak away for private time.

Use Individual Shower Stalls – If you are staying at a place with individual shower stalls that open to the outside, take advantage! You can lock the door, lather each other up, and save on water!
Camping might not afford the privacy for making love, but don’t be thwarted. Be quiet and discrete. Keep the curtains pulled and make sure all the trailer supports and jacks are in place. Especially if you are in a pop-up trailer!
