When the mercury rises at the height of the hottest season, it’s fair to say that sometimes summer lovin’ can get put on the back burner. But don’t let the weather send your love life up in flames, check out LELO’s five best ways to keep cool during steamy summer sex.
1. Set the Scene
Arousing fragrances, scented candles, rose petals, mood lighting, all these things are great for getting each other going, but, as dull as it sounds, if you screw up the ambient air temperature you can say au revoir to your sexy soirée.
We’re not saying crank the AC up to arctic levels – unless of course Eskimo kisses are your thing– but a well-prepared and comfortable environment will chill you both out for some welcome relief. Figure out your timer settings or connect it to your phone so you can make sure the temperature is perfect when you get home.
2. Fire and Ice
The contrast between hot and cold is one of the body’s deepest sensations, so a mouth full of ice cream, frozen yogurt or chilled wine or champagne provides the ideal cold shock to all your partner’s hottest places – just make sure your sheets are such that a little bit of mess won’t matter!
3. Shower Off that Sweat
After having so much fun playing with your food in the bedroom, there’s no better way to get cleaned up than by enjoying an intimate shower together.
Again set the temperature just right – if you’re experiencing a heatwave, lukewarm is a better idea than freezing cold because your skin will warm up in the chill. While you’re getting wet and wild, why not consider adding a waterproof massager into the equation? You’ll both be well on your way to the dirtiest kind of clean in no time.
4. The Lowdown
While getting down may be a well-known euphemism for sex in general, when it comes to hot weather sex it’s also a great, if somewhat unintentional, piece of advice; warm air rises, so the lower you go, the cooler you’ll be.
If you’re lucky enough to have a basement, go there in spring, chuck out all the useless junk you should have got rid of a long time ago, and set up a sexy summer hideaway. It’s just your little secret, and you don’t even need to leave the house.
5. Get Over It
If all else fails…you know what, just embrace the sweat! Use it, slip and slide in, around and all over each other like a pair of slippery things in a slidey place. It’s not gross, it’s not weird, it’s awesome, and what’s more important, you’re both in it together!
