Exactly, beth...

Ive seen the shag sheets. Seems kind of dodgy to me. never liked it much.. By and large, it really shouldnt be a problem.

I just keep thinking though... When traveling with your boyfriend, wouldnt it be better to get a double room a few nights a week, and then sleep in the dorms the rest of the time? You can still be inoffensive and cuddle to sleep in the bunk bed, and then get your freak on, so to speak, when you pay for the privelege... Any thoughts on this?

Love chains? Wow

I think most of the time couples who know they are going to be having sex will get a private room. Its the one night stands that single people have that cause most of the disturbance.

Liar!!!* We were in a six person dorm in Krakow and stopped back in the room during the day to exchange some stuff. The first time I saw the girl on the bottom bunk, she was pretty much topless sitting in bed with the dude. This time, they were under the sheets (another bunkmate had been in the room for awhile) and they made absolutely not attempt to stop what they were doing, what just because three other people were in the mixed "dorm."
Hehe, well the Europeans have different sexual norms. Im sure some of that rubs off on those travelling through as well.

I think thats a great idea. Getting your freak on afterall is the reward for getting the more expensive double bed private room.

When I was living in the hostel in California, my bunk mate got it on so much, I just got used to the feeling of being "rocked" to sleep!

And as far as "shag sheets"....I had a sheet hanging from the ceiling to cover my part of the bed, but not for the purpose of having sex. It just gave me a little bit of my own privacy, which after being in a hostel for 6 months...you tend to need privacy at least part of the time.

(hehe, Belle, it must be part of the job as hostel receptionist to break up the little rendezvous....I have done that a couple times as well, but only if I got a complaint from someone!)

i'm gonna be traveling with my gf this summer and we already talked about this actually. she said a few nights a week we would get a private room to do our thing because she isn't into exhibitionism. haha. we like our privacy and not only will we be able to do our thing, but sleep in peace. idk. i have respect for other people so if i could control myself and keep it in my pants i would think about others, but at the same time i see why people do it. haha. alcohol does that sort of thing!

can't blame em!

Oh yeah it happens. Happened to me in Cesky Krumlov. I even posted a thread about it in the Travel Stories forum.

Worse than that was last October I was in Dallas for a conference and one of the other guys in my room brings a back chick and has sex with her in the hotel room. I was talking quite loudly to a third guy that was in the room to make it obvious that this was not cool. I even told the third guy the Cesky Krumlov when my buddy drops this line, "Keep talkin' I like the background noise." I just about puked.

At least these included two people having relations. I had an encounter in Amsterdam where there was just a guy and what i would assume was his hand. That was much more uncomfortable to be awake for! i honestly couldn't go to sleep for the rest of the night.
here's a tip to everyone that needs to get their solitary freak on: do it in the bathroom! oh, and not in the shower, because i don't want to think about that

i'm sure i'll get my freak on while travelling, but i dont think i could do it in a dorm.
also, if and when i do hear others at it, i'll end up giggling myself to sleep.

This thread is a crack up! I think we had a similar one ages ago...

I haven't done it personally (my triumphs were at a locals place ) but have witnessed it.

I remember walking in on a couple going for it when I was in the UK. She had an awesome rack by the way, haha! I pretended to get something from my backpack and then went and slept in the lounge room. I've also seen people make use of the "Shag Sheets"

I guess it's one of those things you kind of have to put up with for a cheap nights sleep in a dorm.

I've never actually done it in a public dorm (my peeps always have privates ), nor have I heard it (thank god I can sleep through anything! ) but I have had to avoid going back to my room for a couple hours when I knew a friend was going at it in the bed beside me....

More open to nudity and less inhibited about sex. Does "having a tommy tank" = wank?

well, i think i am very qualified to elaborate on this topic. first of all, i have been to one hostel with privacy sheets. kinda nice actually, and had lamps built in the wall in each bed to read with your curtains shut. my first night of my trip, a really drunk roommate was getting it on with his gf. he then peed on me while i was sleeping. it was lovely. i woke up and didn't know what i did, cause i was hammered. found out a few days later, i thought it was beer initially. um, i have also been guilty of shagging in dorm rooms. i have had a girl throw up in my bed, which was not nice, but about half booze/half stress induced. i have been in all-girl dorms a couple of times. tried to be discreet, but of course everyone knows whats going on. had a seedy french guy in a bunk above me one time while i was with a girl and he was saying really dodgy things, and then when we got to business he was havin a wank i think. i felt really bad in the female dorms, but alcohol makes me do silly things. i have been in a room where three beds out of six were at least fooling around. it was terrible though because one guy had two chicks with him, which normally i'd cheer, but they weren't actually having intercourse, just wanted to say they had a threesome in rome i guess, but they were making SOOO much noise. absolutely not even trying to be quiet, talking in voices louder than normal conversation. we kept telling them to keep it down, but he actually got upset, till his buddy said, fu ck dude, at least TRY to keep it down, geez. but in all honesty, snoring is a bigger problem. when someone snores it can last all night and be much louder. i was in a 10 bed dorm where 9 people were up at 3am wagering whether the 10th was dying or snoring. and what we should do about it. 2nd night someone woke him up. didn't bother me as much cause i just popped on the earphones and i was fine. anyway, my two cents.

I 100% agree. That's what we did. We'd sleep in the same bed in dorms, but that's all! And a few times, we sprung for more private quarters.

I have a feeling its not the couples that tend to be doing the dirty in front of a tonne of people, its generally the one night stands on drunken nights...IMO
