Winter is a time of bulky sweaters and runny noses, two things that hardly anyone considers sexy. But when the days grow cold and the nights long, my partner and I have a tendency to hibernate, and that, we’ve discovered, is an ideal time to think up new ways to heat things up in the sack.
4 Ways to Turn Up the Heat
1. Stretch Out in Front of the Fire
It’s a cliché to have sex on a bear skin rug in front of a roaring fire, but sometimes things earn their clichéd status for no reason other than the fact they’re awesome and everybody knows it. My partner and I chose to replace bear skin with a soft and silky cruelty-free alternative, but the thrill of the experience remained the same.
There’s something so sexy about a man who knows how to build a fire, with the coziness of being cuddled up together while the wind and snow whips around outside. It’s a night I’ll remember for years to come.
2. Cold Hands, Warm Breath
Sensory play is a great way to kick things up a notch in the bedroom. In winter it’s really easy to pull off because you don’t even have to raid the freezer for ice cubes or frozen strawberries. Just come in out of the cold, get naked, and get to it.
I love it when my partner works his icy-fingered magic on my neck and back, making his way to my nipples, squeezing them gently, then using his warm breath to heat things up. He alternates between hot and cold, making sure to reach all of my favorite sexy places. Who says a wintertime walk in the park needs to end in hot chocolate?
3. Hot Steamy Shower
Most of us don’t need the excuse of cold weather to jump in the shower with that special someone, but we all know that standing under steaming hot water feels all the more amazing after time spent in the icy outdoors.
You can always run a bath if that’s more your scene. The important thing is that you and your partner are in there together, soaping each other up and getting ready for the even hotter moments to come. Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend going at it right there in the tub. As sexy as it may sound, water can wash away your girlfriend’s natural lubricants. Ouch.
4. Have a Sexy Outdoor Adventure
This is for the truly adventurous among you. Have you ever considered winter camping with your lady? How about a quickie in the bushes next to a secluded ski trail? Outdoor sex in the winter has to be fast and it has involve a minimal degree of nakedness, but once achieved, the thrill of it is unsurpassed.
I remember how the cool air tingled as it hit my unmentionables, and the urgent excitement caused by the thought that we might be caught in the act. Just be sure to protect yourself from frostbite, and no matter what happens, don’t let your bare ass hit the snow!
