I’d say this really depends on three factors: 1) How comfortable she is with it; 2) How comfortable her folks are with the idea of you two having sex in general; and 3) How long you’re staying.

If your girlfriend isn’t comfortable having sex in her parents’ house, then it’s obviously a no-go. If she is, but her parents are born-again types and/or making you stay in different rooms, then keep your snake in its cage till you leave. Of course, if you’re staying with the ’rents for a long time, that’s sort of the trump card regarding factor No. 2. (Note: Nothing trumps factor No. 1.)

So: If the fam won’t freak and you can be discreet, then yes, you can have sex with your girlfriend at her parents’ house.
