you are either extraordinarily young, extraordinarily old, or not from America.

something is "sketchy" if it sounds untrustworthy, suspect, or poorly defined.

Where does "bunker" fit in? I say somewhere between "palace" and "house".

I don't know, I'd put that somewhere closer to basement. Meanwhile, "pod" (as in, the storage receptacle) probably goes between "ravine" and "tarp..."

I think if someone asked me back to their "sex cottage" I'd be okay with that. Other than that, I think "do you want to come back to my sex ____" is pretty much a "no". Unless they're cute.

"sex mobile" douchey, but not that creepy
"sex trampoline" kinda quirky
"sex museum" ...perhaps. We have one in Shanghai, perhaps the person asking is the curator?
"sex trebuchet" I'd actually be kind of intrigued. I suppose that climax stimulates the launch?

"sex jet"
"sex rocket"

"sex guillotine" Back slowly away, turn, then run!

You would think a guy who writes so many grammar comics would realize that "sex orgy" is redundant.

You might also think a person who complains about someone's linguistic infelicities would know the difference between semantics and syntax.

If you invite someone to an orgy without further context or qualification, sex is generally implied, but making it explicit means it works even in contexts where "orgy" is ambiguous

Sketchy means unseemly, tawdry possibly disreputable. a guy selling multiple music CDs with plain covers from a blanket at a flea market is sketchy.
A cheap porn store with dated mechandise and a weird smell is sketchy.

No no, the landing stimulates the climax.

Sooo... anyone non-cute inviting you back to their sex cottage is an automatic acceptance?

Actually, I'd put truck or van way to the right of tarp (kidnapping elements tend to happen more in those than on tarps I think). Otherwise yep, it's a keeper.

So I'd loaded xkcd in a new tab and not looked at it, and my dad was in the room and I was about to switch to read xkcd but then I decided not to, just in case it was a sketchy one.
I chose wisely :D

Other words that should not be in this sentence include "chamber", "temple", "gallows", "coffin", "furnace", "mortuary", "crucible", "rack", and "nursery". Actually, come to think of it, there are not terribly many words that should be used in this sentence.

"Office", "gulag", "closet", "carousel", "dugout", "cellar", "freezer", "pavilion", "site", "hut", "store". This is too easy.

"Company", "camp", "commode", "couch", "cradle", "curtain", "cousins". I think at least a quarter of the words in the English language make this sentence creepy.

I think the thing that makes the sentence creepy is not the word filling the blank, that merely varies the level of creepiness, it's the word "sex" take that out and nearly all of your suggestions lose a lot of creep factor.

Doesn't matter what you put on the end of the sentence, if he's saying this to babies it is both illegal and disgusting.

What about "pad"? Sexpad is (or used to be) the default sketchy name for student digs/single man's first house. That's sketchy in a douche-y kind of way.

Ok, so we all clearly agree this is a very sketchy comic. But what would it take to complete the sentence non-sketch-like?

"Hey baby, wanna come back to my sex ed class?"
^^^ still sketchy
