This or That: Catching or Being Caught

Welcome to DearSugar's newest feature, This or That, where I'll give you two scenarios to choose between. They won't be easy choices; sometimes you'll want both and sometimes you won't want either, but you have to choose: this or that?

You and your significant other are visiting his parents for a long weekend. On your last night, you guys go out on your own while his parents are out to dinner. When you get home the house is dark, and you're alone. Would it be worse to...

Take advantage of the moment by getting frisky without realizing you've left the bedroom door open until you hear his parents walking down the hall?


Head to his parents' room to grab a fresh towel for a hot shower, only to see his dad's naked backside and his mom topless, lunging for her robe?

I would rather catch, as I wouldn't have a problem with them (and people in general) having sex while they might (like posters above mentioned, maybe they're against premarital sex, etc.). But if I do get caught someday... how could being on top make it more embarrassing than being on bottom or elsewhere? It would be embarrassing, period. Who cares what position you prefer! I think that the only particularity that would make the difference would be if you're not having "traditional" sex and it shows in the position (i.e, oral, handcuffed, with a strap-on, etc.) but other than that... come on! it's not like they never done it! but I agree with some posters above, I wouldn't do it in his parents' house in the first place, and I wouldn't dream to step in their bedroom without asking for permission (or just commonly knock the door to check if there's anyone inside, at least!).

It would most defenitely be worse to be caught by his parents! Oh God! I can just imagine it now. I would never be able to look in their faces again.

i said caught. only because we spend tons of time with his parents. they have seen me in a bikini before and seeing everything wouldn't really be that embarrassing. plus, his dad is the type of guy who is proud to know his oldest son has a woman who loves him and is attractive...basically, they know we're sleeping together and i'm sure eventually we will forget to close a door. we'll go over and hang out with them, have some drinks and sometimes need to spend the night--i'm surprised it hasn't happened before. this is unique past relationships i would definitely prefer doing the catching.

Catch...I would feel more embarassed if I were caught.

i've already been in the being caught situation, but i don't think his mom really noticed, she just thought we were laying because it was dark or something.

I think I'd be horrified and my bf suicidal if we caught his parents, so I'd self sacrifice and rather get caught. We've been caught before though, lol... by one of his colleagues. ;-) So I suppose it'd just be a bit of deja vu?

I would DIE if somebody-Anybody caught me screwin'. . . and on top??? (shutters). I don't see me being in this situation though. I'm more mindful in these situations.

I would...catch them like thousand times than get caught even one time. :-p

I would rather catch, as gross as that sounds. My boyfriend's parents have...very strong beliefs when it comes to premarital sex, and we'd never hear the end of it.

If with anyone other than my current boyfriend, I'd say catch... but... his mother has ALREADY caught us before, so I went with get caught, because it can't possibly be as mortifying the second time around as it was the first, right? (And she was actually pretty cool with it.)

Since it's not MY parents, I'd have to say I'd rather catch the parents than have them catch me.

Both mortifying! But I too would rather catch (:SICK:) than be caught.

It looks like most of us are in agreement! @Random I totally agree with you. I wouldn't be able to face his parents ever again!

Got to go with Catch, because I wouldn't want to be caught. :)

I love this new feature! It's so fun, but so difficult to choose. I think I would rather catch his parents. I mean either way, it's going to be akward..but it would make for a good story later!

Why would the towels be in his parents room? O.o

I'd rather catch, because I'd be too embarrassed to face his parents again, and I think catching someone else is easier to live down than being caught.
