Sex with Co-Workers

I have heard some of the best sex-related stories from people who were having sex with their co-workers... the operative word being best, best as a third party observer. For those thinking about crossing the co-worker line, here are some things you should definitely keep in mind... as there really is no going back...

Why do sparks fly so much easier with co-workers? Well, it’s really quite simple... You spend the majority of your waking life at work, where you joke around and provoke each other, you likely share the same frustrations about your environment and bosses, and you are in a similar line of work, so you most likely have other interests in common. If that wasn’t enough, when you start building a more intimate relationship with a co-worker, it makes you want to go to work, it makes the day go by faster - and most importantly, the hormones kick in for a nice dose of euphoria.

Since this is better than the usual day on the job, the tension builds until one day you make plans to hang out, or you run into each other while out on the town. Now outside of the work environment, the flirting escalates… and you end up in bed for one passionate ride...

We interrupt this beautiful love story for disaster scenario number one... the sex is so bad that you never want to even think of it again... too bad that you stand right next to the person for nearly half of your awake life! (It's a risk you need to make sure you are willing to take, so consider having a backup job in mind before following through!)

Assuming this was not the case, in fact, let's assume the sex was some of the best you've ever had... Work becomes more exciting as you spend more time during the day making eyes at each other, flirting, and maybe even kicking it up a notch with a quick blowjob or a full quickie in the bathroom during coffee breaks. This may sound a little extreme, but the temptation to do "bad things" is just so irresistible when you spend the whole day fantasizing about your new partner, especially all the different places you can get away with having sex at work. Long story short, life is good...

As the good times start to roll, you feel like you are on top of the world... like nothing can bring you down. Then, reality shows its ugly head in disaster scenario number two... you lose your job over it... here are just a few ways it can happen:

  • You get so distracted by the new affair that the quality and quantity of your work starts to drop, and your bosses are getting ready to cut you lose. You try as hard as you can to focus, but all you can do is think about new ways to utilize the break room table...

  • Slightly worse, you get caught in the act trying some of those ideas you've been fantasizing about for the break room table... or even something more innocent like a little pat on the butt as you walk by each other...

  • Gossip... obviously this is something that you could handle if you’re tactful, but nasty rumours and politics can give you a reputation that you don't want - especially if someone is jealous. Even if it's not negative, just having to deal with the spotlight until something new and shiny comes along, may be enough to make you want to run full speed away...

  • Last, but not least, what happens if, more likely when, things get ugly between the two of you? Is it worth hating going to work because you are reminded of the person you can't stand, or can’t have?

Either way, it can leave you in a very negative position that most of us would prefer to avoid at all costs... so make sure that you don't get involved in something you may regret. The rewards can be incredible, but they come with a potentially high price; choose wisely!
