A few years ago while living in London, I went to Stonehenge for the Solstice. Stonehenge is an ancient prehistoric site, which may have been a place of worship and celebration at the time of summer solstice for thousands of years. It is a wild time filled with so much energy and excitement. If you have ever been to Stonehenge, you will know that you are not able to approach the rocks and touch them. During the solstice they open up the barriers and people basically celebrate all night to catch the sun coming up through the heel stone. There are people performing rituals, white cloaked and hooded druids among the standing stones, there are also people there just to party, anything goes. There is just a charged energy that is happening, my boyfriend and I took the opportunity in the crowd to have a sneaky fuck. Standing in front of a rock, with people dancing all around us, he took me from behind and we fucked to the pulse of stonehenge. Neither of us lasted very long but it was definitely memorable.
