The Mile High Club (Kinky Friedman, #13) by Kinky Friedman“There is only one Kinky Friedman.” —St. Petersburg Times
Raunchy, offbeat, and hilarious, The Mile High Club, complete with a surprise ending, is Kinky at his considerable best.
It all starts with a casual flirtation, two people on a flight from Dallas to New York. She’s gorgeous and mysterious; he’s a private detective. When the plane lands, the detective—our hero, Kinky—finds he’s been left holding the bag, literally. The woman, having asked the Kinkster to watch her luggage while she visits the can, has taken a powder and somehow vanished. Mystery Woman does turn up again, but not before Kinky has claimed the interest of an array of suits from the State Department, been party to a thwarted kidnap attempt by Arab terrorists, and found a dead Israeli agent parked on the toilet of his downtown Manhattan loft.
Employing the able-bodied assistance of his usual sidekicks, the Village Irregulars, Kinky eventually gets to the bottom of all the comings and goings of the many visitors to his loft, including two late-night visits by the mysterious and suddenly affectionate woman from the plane and one not-so-late-night visit by her angry brother.

Have some self-respect
The bad news? Jenna Leigh is the author of the new book Faking the O , a memoir about her unique dating struggles as a flight attendant and single mom. How did they pull it off? Leigh shares how couples have successfully done the dirty 30, feet in the air and the mistakes that led other randy passengers to get caught in the act. Fifteen percent of people admitted to having sex on a plane in a recent Jetsetter and Travel and Leisure survey.
The biggest mistake you can make is to think you can outsmart the flight attendants. Sure, joining the club sounds fun, but do you want it enough to risk being caught in an utterly embarrassing situation? Not only is this disrespectful; remember that getting caught having sex in public is also a punishable offence in many countries. As you may have guessed, waiting until nighttime has its advantages. For one, many of your fellow passengers are likely to be asleep or at least in a drug-induced state of relative obliviousness. The second advantage is that the lights are dimmed and you can enjoy relative darkness in your seat, which will make a little hand-shuffling barely noticeable to the untrained eye.
Many stop themselves over fear of getting caught - but for others that's exactly why they daringly tried to become a member - so what is it? It's thought the plane's vibration speeds up and increases arousal - putting people in the mood for sex during the flight.
