Isaac Newton, Nietzsche, and other notable intellects throughout history have known the power of “standing on the shoulders of giants,” that is, learning from the luminaries of the past and building upon their achievements. While we know that this works in science and philosophy, the principle also works in public sex. Indeed, so much sex has been had in this most Central of Parks, that an entire NYPD precinct is primarily dedicated to policing it. Central Park has so captured the public imagination that innumerable books, songs, films and even some Glee fan-fiction has been inspired by romps in the Sheep Meadow. Point being, there is nothing new under the sun. It has all been done before. So, you might as well go to the granddaddy of all public sex spots and do as your forefathers (and possibly your actual father) did.

Pro Tip: Avoid horse drawn carriage sex. It’s an uncomfortable spot, you might frighten the horses, and it’s played out. NYPD Officer Frank Irizzary tells us, “There’s something about getting a blow job in a horse carriage car … It always happens. I’ll give them a summons for that.” Come on! Your coitus can get way more creative than that.


We hope that gets you on your way to a taking a sensual bite out of the Big Apple … and from all of us at Complex, please don’t mention us when you land in jail on public lewdness charges. Remember, all sex is private; the best sex is public.
