National Outdoor Intercourse Day

Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always held on May 8

Today is National Outdoor Intercourse Day (NOIT). It's a day to get out in the great outdoors and do the nasty. (Why is such a beautiful and pleasurable activity referred to as "the nasty"!?) This special day seems most popular in the Pacific Northwest, where it originated on the college campus of Washington State University. It doesn't take much encouragement to prompt most people, and especially college students, to participate in this day.

Did You Know? Webster defines Intercourse as "to communicate". Using this definition, it is perfectly okay to have intercourse with anyone outdoors, and indoors, too!

The Roots of National Outdoor Intercourse Day:

Around 2015, Washington State University banned blankets from the grounds of the campus, for fear that it would be used for reasons other than picnicking. ... bad decision. Tell that to a bunch of young college students, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to guess how they would react.


The activity for this special day is not intended for public viewing.  Judging and prizes are not awarded. But, participants report that excitement over the risk of getting caught or seen heightens the enjoyment.

Determining the Date:

Students suggested that the day should be celebrated on the 69th day of the year, or "69th of March". They realized March was not a good month for this kind of outdoor activity, so May 8th was selected. Why this date, is uncertain.

As a kid friendly site, we opted not to display pictures of people enjoying this very special day.

Did You Know?  American English language has evolved over the centuries. In the early days of our nation, politicians and officials used the word "intercourse" to describe communication and social interaction. It eventually evolved to take on a somewhat different meaning, when the word "sexual" was put in front of it.   

The bare truth is, we hope everyone thoroughly enjoys National Outdoor Intercourse Day!

History and Origin of National Outdoor Intercourse Day:

We found no historical information on the origin of this special day. The author is anonymous. it appears to have originated around 2010 - 2015 by students at Washington State University. Needless to say, the college makes no claim to fame for inadvertently creating this day.

This day is called a "National" day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. We certainly hope that neither congress, nor the President of the United States, would formally and officially attach the "National" title to this day. Unofficially however............
