“Boner-High Club”

April 1, 2010

Over at City Pages blog Gimme Noise, Patrick Strait gives some advice on joining what he prefers to call the “boner-high club” – it’s hilariously awesome (he also calls it “hot sky-love,” another phrase I’m digging):

The most important first step when it comes to finding a “Boner-High Club” partner (totally rolls off the tongue, amiright?) is scouting the talent on the plane.

So who should you look for? The fun-loving college girl who is super-psyched to do tequila shots on the beach? The sexy cougar who has already had three red wines before take off? The creepy 27-year-old throwing a temper tantrum over the fact that they aren’t offering Coors Light (the official beer of sky-boning) on the flight?

No. I’m talking about the flight attendants. Hear me out.

After sitting on a plane for four hours, most people are tired, bored and full of rage. Now imagine being on a plane for 18 hours straight. What would you do to break up the monotony?

Exactly; anything.

That’s why you need to keep your eyes open and look for flight attendants who appear to be somewhat sleep deprived and potentially delusional. They’ll be looking for any source of entertainment, opening the door for a romantic encounter for even the most mediocre of gentlemen.

Celebrity pilot back in the air after joining mile-high club with porn star

March 29, 2010

From TMZ:

Celeb pilot David Martz — who joined the mile-high club with a porn star last year while operating a helicopter — got his license back yesterday … and he says he passed his oral exam with flying colors.

The FAA stripped Martz (left) of his pilot’s license last year after footage surfaced of the pilot and porn star Puma Swede engaging in oral sex … 10,000 feet above residential areas in San Diego.

Martz — who flew a number of celebs including Tommy Lee — met with an FAA rep yesterday who gave him an oral exam and then a practical flying exam where they tested him on emergency procedures, cross country, and … ahem … auto rotation.

Martz says he’s happy to have part of his life back, promising “no shenanigans” in the cockpit from here on out.

Flight-themed Fly Lounge in Washington, DC

December 24, 2008

I just discovered the bar Fly Lounge in Washington, DC via Metromix. Sounds great! In The Mile High Club, the authors don’t get into so much the fetishization of airplanes and pilots 9though they do of flight attendants a bit), but that’s another interesting aspect, about those who love flying and being around flying culture. They’re also opening one in Aspen; next time I’m in DC I will check this place out!

Inside Look at Fly: An exclusive aviation themed lounge Join the mile high club Join the mile high club Join the mile high club

To an extent, Dupont Circle’s Fly Lounge is a lot like the act of joining the real mile high club. It is undeniably sexy, steamy and accessible only to a lucky few who get the casual nod. Despite all the hype, the real thing’s probably a bit more cramped than you had anticipated.

Since its debut in 2006, Fly has generated a lot of buzz as one of the most unique and exclusive clubs in the District. Founded by a local DJ-turned-pilot, the lounge is fully immersed in a sleek aviation theme. Fly’s interior is modeled after the cylindrical cabin of a hyper-classy private jet. Beautiful waitresses navigate the crowd in skimpy stewardess uniforms, complete with short skirts, neck scarves and bosom-hugging button-downs with winged lapel pins. Small LCD screens line the walls, displaying lucid images of passing clouds. Tables are even stocked with miniature packs of mixed nuts to complete the feel.

For such a small space (capacity is capped at 120), Fly packs in a surprising amount of energy. The venue’s impressively powerful sound system pulsates an eclectic mix of danceable music, facilitating a kinetic vibe. The DJ spins an engaging blend of house-infused rock, 80s pop, funk and hip-hop, promising to get even the most timid clubbers on the dance floor. Just try standing still when you hear Johnny Cash successfully transition into Kanye. Not possible.

The Mile High Club lineup!

Woo-hoo! I just got the lineup for The Mile High Club: Plane Sex Stories approved. I will post my intro once it’s back from the copyeditor, and will hopefully get some teasers in here and down the road interview some of these fabulous authors! I’ve been having so much fun digging into plane factoids and other fun stuff. And maybe I’ll actually get to join (or rather, rejoin) the Mile High Club in 2009!

Time.com takes on the Mile High Club

November 6, 2008

I was honored to be quoted in this Time.com article by Judy McGuire about joining the Mile High Club. Here’s one anecdote from it:

Don’t Be Shy. Jessica DelFino, a “thirtyish” comedian in New York City, recalls her one and only airborne assignation. “A handsome stranger walked by and smiled at me on his way to the bathroom,” she reports. “I jotted a quick note that said, ‘I’d love to have sex with you. Another world, another time, another place … or in the bathroom?’ and passed it to him on his way back to his seat.”

The bathroom it was. According to flight crews, the lavatory is, not surprisingly, where most mile-highers choose to do the deed. “The other flight attendants and I could never figure out the attraction of lavatory sex,” June C. muses. “Those bathrooms are so gross, it’s like having sex in a bus station bathroom.”

The article also links to Mile High Atlanta, where, for a price ($379 per couple), you can literally “make your fantasy a reality.” Here’s a shot of the interior of their plane:
