Paris park etiquette and why public sex is never cool

Written by Diane on. Posted in on life in France

On our recent Paris trip, after our photo session ended, we were walking out of the Parc de Sceaux and came across a lovely couple. So lovely that we just HAD to take a pic. But no, they weren’t especially cute or picture worthy for the reasons you think. Nope. We took a pic because they appeared to be having sex right out in the open! So much for park etiquette!

Read on and SEE THE PIC!

I must say that after all my travels (and living in NYC), I’ve seen a lot of crazy things that make you do a double take. Most things don’t faze me. That said, I definitely had to look twice after catching these two in what seemed to be a very compromising position. We just had to stare! There they were, just going at it without even trying to cover themselves with a blanket, legs splayed open, right there on the grass in plain view of everyone around. If you want to get busy in a park, that’s your prerogative. Were these people actually doing the deed?

You be the judge, but honestly when the guy’s pants are down and there are, well, um, movements, it looked pretty convincing to us.

No, this wasn’t in some tucked away area of the park. There were kids right on the other side of the bushes. This was 100% smack dab in the middle of the park at 7 p.m. when it was still daylight. If you’re into this kind of thing, at least wait until it’s dark or go somewhere more secluded! And if you must do it out in the open, be quick about it. These two were going on and on and on and on.

There are 1,000 reasons why out in the open, public park sex is not cool. Here are 4:

  1. There are kids around! Several! The “talk” is still a few years away so spare them please!
  2. Unless you’re ridiculously good looking, please know that no one wants to see that! And even still, NO ONE WANTS TO SEE THAT!
  3. Google Maps/Google Earth. You never know when a satellite might be snapping an image.
  4. Someone will probably film it and sex tapes are not cool. Or a passerby will take a pic and you’ll end up on some blog…

And now for the public sex pic:

We didn’t want to get too close and disturb the lovely couple, but you can see what’s going on here… Paris public sex

    Wow. Wow. Wow.
    I’m stunned to no words. I can’t believe someone would do this out in the open. Even when my hormones were at their peak I wouldn’t have done this. At least find a private spot if you can’t wait until you get home.

    no joke, just yesterday I too was in the park and stumbled upon several condom wrappers and first thing I though was “oh my god, people really do have sex in parks!”

    She is very, uh, flexible. Standards of decency? Not so much.

    Granted, we Americans are much more modest, but this is inappropriate in any culture.

    Ummmmmm,i know Paris is the city of “Amour”, and that we not so European minded lot are a little,well “uptight” about nudity BUT…..for God’s sake….GET A ROOM GUYS.This is not romantic,sexy,” so French it hurts” or even cool.And honestly,sex tapes aren’t a good look on anyone (even beautiful Parisians ).What did hubby think ?He’s French and has grown up with a more open view on things,was he shocked and thought “Mon Dieu ” or did he think “awww,L’Amour” ?


  • SexE


    I think this is great. Being so uninhibited must be fabulous. Enjoy the moment, for it may never happen again.


  • Mercy


    Ah yes, Americans. “Sex is indecent and disgusting. Etc. etc. etc.”


    • Diane


      No, not at all. Just that it’s illegal in a public park in full view of kids!
