Oh.....my.....gosh. I am MORTIFIED!!!

Ok, I'm starting to laugh about this now, but this still mortifies me.

So DH and I have lived in our house for 8 years now. We have a light beige curtain on our bedroom window. Our bedroom window faces the main road (BUSY road, lots of foot traffic, etc).

So DH and I were....er....spending some time together tonight and a little light bulb went off on my head. I told DH to lay on the bed but move his arms and legs. I put on my warm clothes, grabbed my shoes, and ran outside and went to the side of the road. You can see everything through this curtain when our night light in our room is on (which it always is unless we are sleeping). So EVERY SINGLE THING that DH and I do in our room with the night light on has been able to be seen by anyone driving or walking along our road.

Oh my goodness. lol.

Sorry for laughing, but I just can't help it.

Are you curtain shopping in the morning?

Oh my goodness! That is so funny! Are you going to get a blackout curtain?

We have these bamboo blinds in our living room, and you can see in from the outside at night when the light is on inside. So one day, our friend called us on his cell and said he was driving by and just wanted us to know that you can see in! It's a good thing we weren't doing anything frisky! LOL.

Ever heard applause? Seen police dispersing a crowd? Have to shoo hot dog vendors and beer vendors off the lawn? No? I think you're okay!

That's So funny! Glad the Light Bulb finally came on....after 8 years and all, lol. Do you have a neighbor across that road??? Wonder if they have been watching the SHoW for a few years- they may be disapointed that it's over lol.

Hahahahahahahahahahha!!!!! Glad you found out now and weren't told by a family member that "poped in"!!!

Back when dh and I were dating, we took advantage of some down time before we had to meet up with friends, and about 15minutes into it, we heard a knock on our bedroom window. (1st floor apt). We laugh about it to this day and now, if we have time, we tend to watch tv or read, before people come over.

BabyGrant- Shadow puppets? hehe

Awesome story. Sorry you are mortified though.

When DH and I were first married, we went on a couples retreat in a lovely B&B. Most of the couples had been married for quite a while and we were the only newlyweds. It was really a very relaxed and encouraging retreat.

Well, naturally, my husband and I had a wonderful night and the next morning, I realized that our windows were open and all the other guest rooms windows were as well --- the Fall weather was great. At breakfast I got lots of smiles and my husband received noticeable nods. Later, it dawned on me that I might not be as quiet as I thought! Boy, did I blush when I realized what might have been heard.

Mind you, the thought of your dh in bed waving his arms around like that is killing me too!
post #16 of 39
too funny.
I like the make sure the night light is between the window and the bed, so we don't cast a shadow

But I have to admit, I can't picture it! If you are on the bed, how is there a shadow? Maybe I'm just being dense! But I am cracking up about your DH moving his arms and legs.

OMG. That's my worst nightmare. I think I'd probably have to move before I could have sex again - seriously. That would make me SO self-conscious.

I'm guessing you have a place like ours, where the windowsills are really low, so the top of the bed is actually somewhat higher than the bottom of the window. Most places I've lived are like that.

Yes, we have a fairly large window in our bedroom, and the bottom of the window is lower than our bed. So really.....it's the PERFECT puppet show window. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahaha.

If you were flat on the bed, maybe there wouldn't be a shadow. If you were having sex in more upright positions. . .

This actually reminds me of one day in jr high that I was walking to the bus stop. It was very early - barely getting light. I walked past this house that had a frosted window in the living room - and I could clearly see the shadow of naked woman straddling a guy, having what looked to be tons of fun I thought it was hysterical.
