Students share their sexhibition stories
This column originally ran in November 2006.
You remember it well — the right time, the right place, no one around but you and “snookums,” fogging up the glass in your mom’s minivan.
Sounds a little like senior year in high school, right? Wrong. In fact, several students said that recently they have openly engaged in “sex acts” — anything from heavy petting to mutual masturbation and oral sex to straight-up doing the nasty — in public.
Locations range from sexy beaches and caves to parking garages, in cars or tour buses.
“I was in Crystal Cove (Newport Beach), next to the ocean. It was … awesome,” said Anthony Papin, a freshman political science major.
Others were a little more daring when it came their sex lives.
“Name a place, and I’m sure I’ve done something (sexual) there. I’ve been on tour buses, random people’s homes, the list could go on. It’s just fun. My favorite experience, though, was a dressing room at a store in the mall,” said Allysse Watson, of Boulder.
When asked what they would have done had they been caught, most said they would run or simply cover up.
“There’s nothing you can do, so you just sit there under a blanket, with your pants down,” Watson said.
Though many students were wary of giving out explicit details, most of them said they considered themselves to be semi-experienced exhibitionists.
“I guess I would consider myself an exhibitionist,” Papin said. “I did go streak (my high school’s) sister high school. I never really had a problem with it.”
Still others seemed to be old pros, with their nudity the life of the party — literally.
“If being the only naked person at my friend’s birthday party counts, then yes, I am an exhibitionist. My favorite quote from that night was, ‘You know it’s a good party when Allysse gets naked.’ I guess it’s true,” Watson said.
Party trick or not, no one can deny the pulse-racing feeling you get when there’s a possibility that you will be caught with your pants around your ankles.
