5 Mile-High Club Stories About Sex On A Plane That Will Make You Say "OMG"

Did you know that both Jennifer Aniston and Ellen Degeneres are members of the mile-high club? I know. I was surprised, too. But their mile-high club stories are pretty spicy (think pilots and cockpits — the works), and they low-key make me want to become a member myself...

For those who may not know, joining the mile-high club requires just one fairly straightforward task: having sex on a moving aircraft (technically once you're at least a mile off the ground). It sounds simple enough, but pulling off in-flight sex is actually a way greater challenge than you might expect.

For one, there are the issues of legality. "The Mile High Club might be exclusive and tempting but consider that while no state law might be applicable if no one sees you, there are surely some number of federal agencies that will find the conduct actionable," Joseph Tully, criminal lawyer and author of California: State of Collusion, told Bustle, "Since 9/11, it’s best not to stretch the limits on airplanes or you risk the unbridled wrath of Homeland Security — not an agency known for a sense of leniency or humor. Destination sex might be a better bet to stay off the no-fly list."

Oh, and have you ever been inside the bathroom of an airplane? Because those things are cramped, smelly, and often covered in questionable liquid — so, like, not the sexiest environment. Also, um, what if a flight attendant (or worse, a small child) catches you and your SO? Yikes.

All of that said, there is something that's just so freaking sexy and rebellious about the thought of getting it on in-flight. And if you're dying to know what the experience is actually like, take it from these five mile-high club members themselves. Some are shocking, others are tantalizing, and a few will make you blush from secondhand embarrassment...
