You’re stuck in an 18-inch wide seat, traveling at 500 MPH in an aluminum tube. A woman (or dude with frosted hair) is trying hard not to roll her eyes as an unaccompanied minor keeps pinging the call button. The pilot wonders how he’s going to continue keeping his west coast family from finding out about his east coast family. And a good-looker is thumbing through a dog-eared copy of The Bonfire Of The Vanities less than a yard away from you. You’re single, what do you do?
The humdrum tedium of air travel can be easily filled with a new friend and some snappy patter. I’ve had pretty good luck dating ladies I sat next to on flights and so can you. If you’re into men, these tips should still work.
1. Wait until the flight is at least half over. An early pounce makes for an awkward next few hours. Read more…
Unless you own a private plane with a bed in the cabin, having sex in an airplane has got to be the lamest sexual fantasy ever. Not to mention corny. And tacky. If you want to do it in public, do it in a park or an alley like decent people. I find its apparent popularity confounding. There are websites dedicated to tales of airborne debauchery, which all read like the ridiculous letters sections of soft-core porn magazines, where some unemployed former Blockbuster manager just can’t believe he had a threesome with two 19-year-old Icelandic snowboarders hitchhiking through Alabama. This is to say, I have never believed any story anyone has ever told me about putting the “cruise” in “cruising altitude.” At least, I’ve never believed any story that makes it sound hot, or desirable, or like anything that doesn’t make me want to pour myself a Lysol bath.

Some airlines are trying to keep their customers out of the bathroom by making them pay to use the loo (cruel!). Lufthansa’s restrooms, on the other hand, might just be the best part of the aircraft. The German airline has just refurbished its first class cabin, adding a lavatory that rivals our own with sleek fixtures, a minimalist, streamlined design and even a spacious changing area. We wonder if the nice, roomy facilities will aid in expanding the membership of the Mile High Club? Lufthansa has to be aware of the risks, right? C’mon, there’s even a couch in there! You make it too easy! [Core 77] Keep reading »
In general, sex makes people stupid — why else would anyone get it on with a complete stranger and not bother with protection? But there must be something in the water these days, because lately people are acting especially idiotic about intercourse.
A 31-year-old sex-offender in Arizona posed as a 12-year-old to enroll in several schools. Apparently this guy looks really young for his age, because he pulled off this stunt for two years. Neil Havens Rodreick II was sentenced to 70.5 years in prison yesterday. [AP]
A commercial helicopter pilot who joined the mile high club while he was the pilot has lost his flying license. David Keith Martz was videotaped in a sex act (with an adult film actress) while flying over San Diego in 2005, and the video hit the internet last year. Martz will be able to reapply for his license next year. [SignOnSanDiego.com]
A 15-year New York Police Department veteran who tested positive for cocaine in 2006 isn’t getting his job back even though he swears he didn’t do the drug. Jon Goldin sued last year after a NY state appeals court rejected the NYPD’s use of hair to test cops for illegal drug use. His lawsuit said the positive test was a result of “passive ingestion” from performing oral sex on his then-girlfriend, who later admitted to Goldin that she was a regular cocaine user. We don’t understand how cocaine could go from his girlfriend’s privates to his body unless she had sprinkled a white powder down her drawers. [NY Daily News]

It would be hard to find a more fitting pair than of sex and travel. Here, one adventurer, who has kissed an uncounted number of men who don’t share her zip code, shares her experience combining the two through more than 30 countries.
Long flights aren’t just for, well, flying. While you’re thousands of feet above ground, why not join a certain club? You know exactly what I mean. While I’m not an expert on helping you find that handsome, adventurous someone for your tryst, I can definitely help with the logistics, especially now that planes are feeling more like sardine cans lately (thank you fuel prices). And joining the MHC is really the best way to end any vacation. Keep reading »
Joining the mile high club used to be a big deal. First, you both had to sneak past the flight attendants, then you had to contort yourselves into a disgusting 2-foot-square box with fluorescent lighting and a toilet, and finally you had to, once again, slip past the suspecting flight attendants who totally knew what was up. Well, Singapore Airlines has practically taken the fun out of this furtive endeavor now that theyâ€™ve added double beds to some of their planes. The only thing is, theyâ€™re asking passengers to keep their trousers on. Rightâ€¦The suites arenâ€™t soundproof, so just suppress yourself from screaming things like, â€œWe have liftoff!â€ [Times UK] Keep reading »
