Auto Erotic

Remember when the goal of a date was a make-out session in your car? Ahh...the good ol' days - the passion, the taste of skin and sweat, and the hunger for another's touch.

If you're looking to rev up passion and steam up the windows (like that scorching scene in "Titanic," maybe), here are a few suggestions to take for a test drive.

1. Park at Inspiration Point. Did you know that San Diego has an "Inspiration Point"? Classic sit-coms and movies always had romantic and secluded locations for teenagers to park and fool around. San Diego's Inspiration Point is a cute grassy area that's part of Presidio Park in Mission Hills, overlooking Mission Valley. If that doesn't get your juices flowing, choose your own inspiring location like Sunset Cliffs, Kate Sessions Park or Mount Soledad. All have beautiful views.

2. Make out. Scrap your usual approach to sex and do something out of the ordinary by making out in your car. By this I mean passionate kissing and groping, enjoyed for its own pleasure. Sexual play without an end goal may seem odd, but when you take your time with teasing and play, anticipation builds. Savor this escalating electricity and connection with your partner.

3. Go Topless! I heard about a couple who always argued on road trips, ruining their travel time together. Desperate to change this pattern, they agreed that whoever started the argument must ride topless for the next hour. If they couldn't agree on the initiator, they would both go topless. This drastically cut down on their arguments, plus the ridiculousness of it diffused their anger into laughter. Obviously this suggestion isn't about sex per se, but it certainly could make your travel time sexier!

There are a lot of sexy things about a car, and these suggestions can elevate sexy to a new level. With a little creativity and enough comfort with PDA, you can take your sexual fun on the road. Wanna go for a ride?
