Being "Intimate" In Front of Pets

We're just wondering if other people feel weird being "intimate" in front of pets. Particularly pets who are very protective/needy.

Not really. Often we incorporate them into these sessions.

In front of, that doesn't bother me. (Although not the same situation, we had a dog who, if you were on the toilet and there was a storm/thunder, he would come in and wedge himself in between your legs and the toilet seat. That was unnerving.)
It does bother me when the dog is on the bed at the same time, however. And yes, he decides he wants to be snuggled at that time as well. Definitely a moodkiller.

I never had any problem. My cats always found something do to elsewhere.

Every cat I've known always leaves the room. It's like they understand what's going on.

I was 'entertaining' my friend, and I felt a cold nose on my butt....I was NOT amused. I looked up and the dog was standing there giving me, 'the disappointed look'. I shoo'ed her away and when I later went into the kitchen, she gave me the cold shoulder.

our cats don't even bother moving off the bed. They just go to sleep. I guess we're that boring

The puppy gets real excited and starts barking and the cat just swats the shit out of him for being an idiot.

When I had a cat, she'd always want to come on the bed. She was kind of gross to begin with, so I didn't really want her around during those times...I ended locking her out of the bedroom...best decision ever! Well, right after getting rid of her, that is.

In some cases, divorce can definitely be the best choice!!

My cats would always jump on the bed and I would end up locking them in the bathroom or outside of my bedroom.

Is being "intimate" in front of babies any different?

Man, when the dog doesn't approve of your dates, it's really time to raise your standards.

I had a previous girlfriend who had a cat. One time, and one time only, the cat tried nosing in on the action. After a knee-jerk reaction, to which the cat fell off the bed, she never tried it again.

The cat that came with my current girlfriend is too lazy to even notice.

Try having sex on a mattress on the floor with two dogs in the room. That was a bad idea. We couldn't even kick them out because one of them would whine so loudly it sounded like an air-raid siren. That was a long week until we got a new boxspring delivered.

I think they must pass down legends from mother to puppy about dog-level human beds.

An old girlfriend had four dogs, all of them heavier than 90 pounds. She had bought an old beanbag chair at a yard sale to use as a doggie bed. The stupid dogs couldn't get the idea. She sat on it, lay on it, invited the dogs onto it, and set the dogs onto it, but they would never get on the beanbag on their own. This went on for weeks.

One day we had a quickie on it. All four dogs ran into the living room, stood in a circle around us, and barked at us. It was pretty funny.

That evening, the dogs were fighting over who got to lay on the beanbag.

We lock the cats out of the room for fear of claws in the bare ass......or worse.
