In the United States, reef sex is considered a rarely practiced form of sexual intercourse
with the exception being the island of Key West
, Florida. The term reef sex refers to placement of a snorkel
, commonly used for ocean snorkeling
, into the anus of a sexual partner during the act of oral or vaginal intercourse
. The recipient merely relaxes as the 'snorkeler' then blows into the snorkel
producing the characteristic ARRUUUUUUUUUGA! aesthetic. This is the culmination and essential step, thus completing a bout of reef sex.
Many Key West snorkeling companies offer night-time adventures where participants enjoy a happy hour at sea before retiring to their private bungalows and an excellent opportunity for their first experience with reef sex.
