Last year in Australia there was a court case when a company tried to sack a female staff member who was caught having sex in the company bathtub with two male colleagues. The case was dismissed – although the woman was instructed to lock the door next time! But it got me thinking about the places that characters in books have sex.
A bed is so boring. Even the tub is pretty average.
So here are 13 not-so-average venues from romance novels - with some books you can check out for inspiration.
Tell us the wildest sex location you've read in a novel! Or, of course, the craziest place you've had sex yourself.
