Women: Miniskirt. Lose the stilettos.
Men: Sweatpants (no DHAs; athletes in the library send up a red flag), boxers, and an old t-shirt. Nudity unacceptable.
How to do it
Silence your cell phone. The Nokia tune is only an appropriate interlude on vibrate.
Check for nearby persons in study carrels. People think we don’t have sex. Let’s keep it that way.
Check for loose books. A falling copy of Miss Manners can really cramp your style.
Slowly drop pants and boxers and/or lift skirt(s). A ripped skirt or shirt might be hot in the heat of the moment, but what will the security guards think?
Take a firm grasp of the bookcases’ metal sides. Do it standing, with entry from behind. Keep your thrusts to a minimum. Your lover and the bookshelf will appreciate it.
Modulate your moans. “Ooh Jack, it’s so big” might not be something the Widener workers are used to.
