Some call it the ultimate adventure in the sky, others call it the most exclusive club on the planet. Are you daring enough to join it? Here are a few pointers for getting your shag on 5000+ feet in the air.

What is the Mile High Club?

First of all, let’s start with the basics, shall we? Unless you’re as naive as a grandma, you probably already know what it’s all about. For those that don’t we’re sure that the video at the end of the post will fully enlighten you! While some believe that you can gain membership just by a little inconspicuous frisking, you must do the full deed in order to get into the club. Bonus points if you do it with a stranger you meet on the plane, not someone you knew beforehand.

What you need

Well, first of all you need to book yourself on a long-haul flight (not easily done on a short-haul trip). If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to book flights to Australia, now is your chance! Second, you’re going to need a partner in crime. Whether is your conjugal partner sitting beside you or a complete stranger that strikes your fancy, it takes two to tango.

How to do it

Step 1:

If you’re going to go for it, wait until the plane has reached cruising altitude and for the seat-belt sign to be turned off. Keep an eye on the nearest loo and wait until passengers around you are either sleeping or watching films. Don’t go when it’s most likely to be busy, just after take-off or right before landing for example.

Step 2:

When the coast is clear, one of you head to the toilet. Tell your partner to come back if you don’t show up in 5 minutes (just in case something goes wrong!). As for the air hostess, wait until she’s at the other end of the plane serving up drinks and snacks or wait until she’s made her rounds and gone back to the galley.

Step 3:

To put it nicely, get’er done and do it quick! There’s hardly time (or space for that matter) for romancing or foreplay. Besides that, you can never telling when someone will need to use the loo and before you know it, there could be a line-up of people waiting outside. You can imagine that it won’t be so easy for both of you to sneak out of there as stealthily as you went in.

Step 4:

There’s not much more to it than that. Some join the Mile High Club for the bragging rights, others for the personal satisfaction. Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic joined the club in 1969  at the ripe age of 19… with a married woman!

Note: By publishing this article, in no way encourages having sex on a plane as it could result in fines/legal action, unwanted exposure and embarrassment if caught in the act. Join the Mile High Club at your own risk.

  1. Unfortunately these days the reality is that it’s dangerous and impossible. If you stay more than 2 min in the loo they knock. The real advice for sex on board is ” travel with a blacklisted or local airline that cares nothing about security “- for the others, be happy with handjobs

    1. Hey Coralie,
      So true isn’t it? About the knocking… can’t get any serious business done in the loo these days! Even Air New Zealand’s skycouches are far from discreet but you can probably get a little nooky if you’re as smooth as James Bond.
