We enjoy sex play outdoors, in all seasons but coldest Winter, and even then we have found a place or two in where the sun is reflected and the grass is warm. We live in South-Central Texas where the seasons are Hot and Not-as-Hot. Great for lying unclothed in the shade under a pecan tree. Shields the pain from the pecans when they fall to the ground and cannot be seen before laying it out. Amazingly comfortable. It is, as pointed out elsewhere, bulky and hard to store, but it is worth every penny. Slides on tile floors, but not on grass. If you long to have comfortable lovemaking outside, save your money and get one of these. We actually have bought two. I wish they came in even bigger sizes.
