You’ve planned and prepped for months and now the moment is finally here. With thousands of music fans descending into one place, there are certain things you need to know about tent sex. Whether you’re with your partner in Glastonbury or open to meeting someone new at Wireless, learn how to enjoy festival sex with our do’s and don’ts.
Be prepared – Now that you’ve chosen your favourite outfits and sunglasses for a few days of fun in the sun, packing condoms and lube are just as essential as wearing sun cream. Whether you’re actively seeking some festival romance or you’re more focused on enjoying the music, condoms are a great way of keeping you and your partner safe while you enjoy one another. To avoid ruining your experience and worrying about the aftermaths, bring enough condoms to last you a few days.
Freshen up – When it comes to festivals and festival sex, hygiene is the utmost important. After a few days of dancing in a field with the sun shining and limited washing facilities, keeping fresh can be a challenge. To avoid any awkward moments between you and your partner; make sure to bring plenty of wet wipes, deodorant, tooth brush, mouth wash and chewing gum to make those intimate moments memorable for good reasons.
Be considerate – In a thin, cramped and hot tent; finding the perfect alone time for a romantic encounter can be pretty difficult, especially when sharing accommodation. If you decide to take your festival flirting to the next stage, make sure to keep your friends in the loop. Not only does it give you and your partner the opportunity to enjoy yourselves freely without fear of being interrupted, but it also reduces the risk of any unexpected surprises that your friends may encounter. Enjoy yourself – After months of prepping, saving and mapping out your favourite acts to watch; take the time to enjoy the sights and sounds with your friends. Don’t worry about whether or not you’ll find a festival romance; however, spend time with friends creating memories that you will never forget.
Be super noisy – Despite having private time with your partner, you’re tent is not a magical cloak of invisibility. There will be thousands of festival-goers in attendance and several of them will be located near your area. No matter how great your hookup is, no one wants to hear it. Make sure to keep that in mind as you and your partner enjoy one another.
Overdrink – While drinking can be in abundance at a festival, one too many drinks can lead to mistakes and impaired judgement. The guy with the edgy haircut and killer outfit can suddenly become someone who you will regret the next day. Avoid a situation that you will later regret by having a pre-agreement with trusted friends to politely intervene and stop anything that might make you feel uncomfortable.
Be shy – This is your moment to create an experience that you will never forget. Don’t worry about being perfect and things going exactly to plan; chances are your partner is not worried about that. Enjoy the moment and remember, chances of seeing your new found partner is slim to none, so don’t worry about making the perfect impression. Let go, have fun and be merry!
