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

"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."—23/Female/Demisexual

2. Car repair shops

DreamWorks Pictures / Via gallery4share.com

"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."

3. Laundry rooms

FOX / Via martinpayne.tumblr.com

"I think it has to do with the smell of fresh laundry, especially when people use GAIN. I don't need it to orgasm but it definitely helps."

4. Aquariums

"Something about being in the semi-darkness with the neon lights and the humming of the equipment makes me get goosebumps instantly."—31/Female/Straight

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."—34/Female/Straight

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."—19/Female/Bisexual

"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."

26. Any public place

FOX / Via giphy.com

"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."
