Anyone a member of the mile-high club?

    Is actual bodily penetration a condition of membership? Or does it count if the goal is achieved in a non-penetrative fashion?

  2. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 11:00 am

    Can we go to the judges?

    I wish Cindy were here. She’d know.

  3. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 11:02 am

    Yeah, Cindy would lay down the law.

    Mile-high club has to include actual sex.

    I wouldn’t try it. Air marshals are likely to taser you.

  5. Nick Husher on September 1st, 2009 at 11:08 am

    But does sex imply penetration?

  6. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 11:14 am

    Yeah, that was my question: Is ‘actual sex’ penetrative?

    Not in my experience.

  7. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 11:19 am

    I think we have two questions here:

    Is sex penetrative? (Or does a definition of sex require penetration.)

    And does membership to the mile-high club require penetration?

    My tentative answers are:

    Not necessarily.

    &

    I think probably so.

  8. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 11:27 am

    Okay, I guess that’s why it is an exclusive club.

  9. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 11:34 am

    membership has its privileges.

  10. Doc on September 1st, 2009 at 11:52 am

    yes

    What if I had my thumb in my butt while I was wanking? Does that count?

  13. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    platinum club.

  14. Dave Vogt on September 1st, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    what if the goal isn’t achieved at all, but attempted in a penetrative fashion?

    e.g. coitus interruptus pleasedonotarrestus

  15. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    Well, yeah. Defining the goal as an explosion, indeed, speaking in terms of a goal at all, strikes me as limiting and boring.

  16. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 3:16 pm

    Hey, I don’t make the rules.

  17. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 3:22 pm

    Me, neither! I just like to get down and dirty wherever I can.

    Eight . . . miles . . . high . . .

  18. Kelsey Parker on September 1st, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    Is it just me, or has anyone actually admitted to this yet?

    I’ll confess that it’s an aspiration.

  19. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    Dagnabbit, I jerked him off under cover of a newspaper between Rome and Athens. I do not recall if it was the New York Times or the International Herald Tribune, nor do I recollect the altitude. But apparently I don’t qualify.

  20. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    shit, that’s got to count for something.

    also, I’m going to miss y’all.

  21. Rick Neece on September 1st, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    I am not a member of that mile-high club. But I am a member of this one. Other than Sheila, Michael Grant Smith, and Deron, anyone else?

  22. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    Hell, yeah. It was sweet. Miss you, too. Be looking for you in the shark tunnel once you’re back.

  23. Rick Neece on September 1st, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    Deron and Amy, have a great trip! I’ll miss you, too.

  24. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 5:49 pm

    wait. I ain’t a member. yet.

  25. Phil Bebbington on September 1st, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Sheila, I’m glad to hear it was a broadsheet even if exactly which one doesn’t cum to mind.

    As for me, I’m likely to go off like a cocked pistol in all manner of locations – I have no scouting patches for the effort nor any witnesses. I guess that’s the nature of the cocked pistol – rarely witnessed!

    Did we ever explore injuries sustained during the act?

    And so to bed, uncocked and nothing in the breech! I’ll catch up with you all in the morning.

  26. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 5:54 pm

    And so to bed, with visions of what-have-you dancing in our heads.

  27. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    cabin pressure. cockpit. fuselage.

  28. Sheila Ryan on September 1st, 2009 at 6:04 pm

    Trouble breathing.

  29. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    turbulance.

  30. Dave Vogt on September 1st, 2009 at 6:22 pm

    Sometimes a cockpit is just a cockpit. Freud said that, I think.

  31. Kelsey Parker on September 1st, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    Warmed nuts.

  32. Derek White on September 1st, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    Yep. In the main cabin, other passengers sleeping across the aisle.

  33. Deron Bauman on September 1st, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    we have a winner.

  34. Derek White on September 1st, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    wha? I’m the only one?

    I was young, didn’t think about it. She sort of slid over on my lap under the blanket. I think it was Aeromexico.

    How about subways or trains? I did things on BART once, but not everything. Too hard with the frequent stops.

    i once had marital relations with my soon to be wife in a canoe.

    i am not making this up.
