For some people, it can be considered very impressive to be apart of the elusive 'Mile High Club'. 

But getting it on in the teeny toilet of an aeroplane may provide more trouble than it's worth. 

It turns out that plane lavatories aren't as private as we thought... that's because most planes actually have a secret latch on the toilet door that allows someone on the outside to unlock it!

Apparently, the hidden latch can be found underneath the metal "lavatory" sign on the door. 

To access it you just lift up the sign and flick the catch underneath it to unlock the door!

The feature is there for good reason though, as a safety measure so that flight personnel can access the toilets in case of an emergency.

So if you don't want to get caught with your pants down save the hanky panky for when you get onto solid ground, ok?!
