Mile High history

Did you think the Mile High Club has only been around since the days that celebrities have been able to get away with pretty much whatever they want – including sex at 10,000 feet? Well, it seems people have been indulging in some high-altitude nookie for nearly 100 years! Who would’ve thought that our grandparents had the same desire for some sex in the air, as we do!

So a few months ago we heard that something went on between Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon, but who else is reputed to have joined the elusive club. Well there’s Janet Jackson who spoke of her romp in the aisle on the Tyra Banks show. Then there’s Richard Branson who apparently joined the club at age 19 – perhaps igniting his passion for planes...

But the founding members of to the Mile High Club were Lawrence Sperry and Mrs Waldo Park – while Mr Park was probably on a business trip. These two naughty flyers had a romp on Mr Sperry’s plane all the way back in 1916 until it crash-landed leaving an even-more-flustered pair being taken to the hospital completely naked...

Lawrence Sperry is also the inventor of the autopilot – go figure...
