Is Sex a No-No on Certain Holidays?

Now that Easter is over, I'm sure many of you traveled to see or stay with family. If you brought your significant other with you, there must have been times when you two were all alone, ready to get frisky! But how do you feel about having sex in the house you grew up in or getting busy while staying at anyone's home? Maybe you actually don't care if others happen to hear you but I was wondering, when it comes to holidays, are there certain ones where having sex is off limits?

I don't think the problem is having sex on holidays, it's having sex in someone else's house, Personally, I think it's kind of wierd if you're a staying with someone, especially your parents. However, I think the main thing is, if you're religious and think it's inappropiate to have sex on a holiday, then, unless you're married, you probably shouldn't be having sex at all yet. I think some people feel like sex is dirty and something to be ashamed of, but it's not in the right context. I am Catholic and I don't believe in sex outside of marriage. When you have sex with your spouse, they're is nothing wrong with it, no matter what day (or time) it is....

if anything, me and my man look at holidays as a special occasion, so we do the deed, no matter what the holiday, where we are staying. We don't care.

no limits. we have sex in the house i grew up, in the house he grew up in, we've even had sex in his sister and brother-in-laws bed. we're not too concerned about those things. we didn't even think about the "we just had sex in my sister's bed" thing till after the deed had been done. as for holidays, never even thought about that being a factor.

We don't have sex in my parent's house (unless they aren't there)... but oddly enough we don't have a problem in either his mom's house or his dad's house... Weird... never thought about that. As far as holidays... no it doesn't matter.

I don't designate any holiday as 'off limits'. Now, in terms of sex in other people's homes or in your parents boyfriend and I just have 'quiet sex'. Haha :)

No, I don't think certain holidays should be off limits. Certain places on the other hand? Yes.

My husband and I don't care what day it is, but we did go to a bed and breakfast one time in Ohio that was all historical and the bed creaked VERY LOUDLY. That kind of scared me from having sex in someone else's home ever again, even if I was paying them $100 a night.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention: if we are staying at another family's home, then I don't think sex is appropriate, especially if there are children in the house. But we really didn't go anywhere but out to dinner, and back to our home. 8)

I will have sex just about anytime, but there are exceptions. We have our stepson on weekends, so no sex until AFTER we drop him off. Alas, it was an awesome Easter for me. :P

I really think the title of this one is misleading. The post really isn't about the holiday affecting your sex life, but the presence of family members in your home, or being in someone else's home. I know many people may consider this prudish, but my husband and I have made a choice to not have sex if we are staying with family members. It's just a matter of respecting their home, or respecting the guests we have. It's not that sex is something to be ashamed of, but it's also a private thing. I prefer to keep that to ourselves during times when we don't have guests or are guests. (Hotels are a whole other thing entirely. That's fair game, so long as you're not sharing a room with anyone else.)

About 6 yrs ago my parents flew in from South Carolina to visit us in Texas so we could celebrate both mine and my father's birthday (we are 3 weeks apart). On the day of the celebration my husband and I were feeling frisky right before it started, so we snuck upstairs to mess around. We could hear my parents getting ready in the next room right beside us, so we were really quiet. STOP READING HERE IF YOU'RE EASILY anyway, we were using the "with drawl" method at the time because I was still breast feeding our 10 month old and that form of birth control was the simplest and best for my body at the time. But, because he could hear my parents in the next room, my husband didn't "with drawl" in time because he said he didn't want them to hear anything and he was concentrating on being quiet and not timing...needless to say, 9 months later I had our 4 child. So, I'm sure my youngest is glad that Mom and Dad didn't act accordingly to what Miss Manners would have said we should do during a celebration and when guests are in the house. :true:

I would feel uncomfortable having sexual relations knowing my parents were in the next room over. Some people might find that exciting and risky, but it kinda creeps me out.

I think I'll clarify that one. I mean, sex is not off limits on certain holidays, but that it definately is if my parents are in the next room!

Certain holidays, no. Around my parents? Yes!

As far as the holidays themselves being off limits no, but if you're staying with someone or your family I think you should use some common sense with that one.

Holidays wouldn't bother me, someone else's house might.
Get it when you can. No matter the Holiday.

No, sex is not off limits on any holiday. It is, however, off limits at certain locations. That's a given.

I wouldn't have sex on Easter just because so many people are around and in my house, not because of religious reasons. It's no different than any other day though.. While having sex in a somewhat public place might be liberating, I don't find it sexy at all to have sex in the room right next to my parents. The thought of them hearing makes me CRINGE. If I really needed it, we would have to make a trip to the grocery store for something. :-)
