26 Places People Can't Go To Without Wanting To Have Sex

From grocery stores to 17th century castles, here are actual places that put people in the ~mood~.

Posted on

What ~gets you going~ can be totally different from what turns another person on, or maybe it's not. It's not often that you get to hear what puts other people ~in the mood~.

So we asked the BuzzFeed Community to share the uncommon and surprising things that turn them on. Here are some of the incredibly specific places that they told us about (and to be clear, we're talking about stuff being done by/between consenting adults):

1. Dentist's office

Warner Bros. Pictures

"I have odontophilia, so I love watching dental procedures on YouTube, going to the dentist, licking teeth, people with braces, etc. I think about the dentist's office while I masturbate probably a couple times per week."


2. Car repair shops

"I love the smell of car repair shops — the oil, gasoline, and rubber scents get me in the mood immediately. When my boyfriend comes in from working on his truck or after I'm done with a visit to get my car serviced, he is completely irresistible. I don't need it to come but it does get me off faster."



5. Cathedrals


"I didn't grow up Catholic. So my first time visiting one made me feel like a character in a romance novel. I don't think about it often. But anytime I visit a cathedral, I feel this raging, throbbing desire to have sex."



8. 5th to 17th Century Castles

"I have always wanted to get it on inside one of these castles. Sometimes I dress my girlfriend up as a queen to get the feeling of being in a castle."


10. Gynecologist's office

"I get turned on just thinking about going to the gynecologist's office. Just the thought of a man or a woman having the power to make me come when they shouldn't really turns me on. I don't need this to orgasm all the time, but if I'm having problems with someone, or by myself, it certainly helps! I think about it a few times a week, at least. Sometimes everyday."


11. The very edge of cliffs or other great heights

"There is an impulse to jump which is completely at odds with every instinct for self-preservation I have as a human being. For some reason, that feeling of being that close to oblivion really does it for me."

15. Hard rock/metal concerts

"Something about heavy guitars and raspy singing voices at a live show makes me want to go right home and get busy after the show is over. It energizes me and gets me all hot and bothered. I'll still go home and rub one out after a concert."



17. Really tight spaces

"Closets, cars, small rooms, my pantry... I think about it every time I masturbate. I like to imagine someone is stuck in there with me."


19. Wooded areas

"I get horny whenever I'm walking through the woods because my boyfriend and I had our first time together in the woods near our university."



25. Study rooms

Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

"Studious atmospheres, as in a study room, library, or home study with bookshelves and stationery and all. It's not necessarily to get off, but I think about sex whenever I'm in said place."


26. Any public place

FOX / Via

"It's pretty much the potential risk of getting caught. Anytime someone's going to come over or whenever the guy I'm seeing is in a long phone call I just get so turned on. I enjoy being fondled in public, just a short squeeze when no one is looking."
