Like many people, I have been suffering from the Winter Blues. The Midwest has been EXTREMLY cold this year and finding the motivation to get out of my flannel pajamas, layers of clothes and long underwear and into the mood to get naked has been a challenge. The other day I started thinking about how many babies are conceived during the winter months and I realized some people must be finding a better way to stay warm than cranking up the furnace to 80 degrees and plugging in the electric blanket.
Sex is a great way to keep warm during these cold winter months and being creative in finding ways to burn up the sheets will only add to the heat. Sharing body heat is a great way to conserve energy and your fuel bill will not be sky high! Nothing beats staying in and having hot sex on a cold night, especially compared to driving in the snow, scraping the windshield, and shoveling the drive.
If you want to put some extra heat between your sheets while waiting for the sunny days of spring here are a few tips and tricks to help your sex life be a breeze rather than freeze.
- Go from water to land. Take a hot shower or bath together to warm up. Lathering each other up and rinsing each other off will do more than steam up your bathroom mirrors. Then towel each other off and hit the bed.
- Next time you hit the sheets with your partner, get in bed completely dressed. I know that is the opposite of what people usually do but shedding the extra layers while you are making out under the sheets will turn up your body heat and your sexual heat. You won’t be able to wait to get to the bottom of each other’s layers and feel that skin on skin.
- Use those sex toys! I have a friend who told me every time she uses her Hitachi Magic Wand, she can feel her body getting hotter until her whole body is perspiring. She actually has to toss the covers off! Getting the extra stimulation sex toys can give will keep even the coldest couple basking in the warmth.
- If you have a fireplace, use it! You don’t need to do the stereotypical bearskin rug thing to make hot love in front of the flames. Try pulling an armless chair in front of the fireplace and straddling your partner while you feel and make the heat.
Spring is on the way but you don’t have to wait for sunny skies to have great sex. You can beat the winter doldrums and lack of sunshine by making your own sunshine and melting that ice that may be giving your sex life it’s own seasonal affective disorder.
