Five Winter Sex Positions

Winter is coming, and you should be too.

There’s evidence that suggests that we actually want to have more sex in the winter – whether we’re aware of this impulse or not. According to a 2008 study from the University of Wroclaw in Poland, men find women’s bodies most attractive in the winter months. The researchers believe this is due to the fact that people are usually wearing more clothes in the winter, and so we get more excited when women show a little bit of skin during this time.

Another study found that men’s testosterone levels are at their peak in December – possibly due to the climate and sleep pattern changes – which ups their sex drive. The higher the levels, the higher your libido.

So, there’s no need to despair about the recent dip in the temperature – some of the steamiest and kinkiest sex can be had when it’s freezing cold. Here are some sex positions you can try in your sex hibernation that won’t make you freeze your actual arse off.

The Warm Winter Spoon

Spooning is lazy and comfortable, while maintaining the de facto deeper penetration of any from-behind positions and allowing both of you full use of your hands. It’s the ultimate position for skin-on-skin contact, but it runs the risk of leaving your girl exposed to the cold. Use your hands to warm her up – rub her breasts, thighs, and clit to heat things up a little. An added bonus: this can all be done from the comfort of your blanket – what more could you want?

The Sled Doggy Style

Think the cold stops dogs from getting it on? Think again!

This doggy style with a twist will keep you and your partner toastie warm. It’s all about maximising the skin-on-skin contact – so, find a position that allows you both to feel a bit more skin. When you and your partner are going doggy style, slowly flatten your bodies so that he’s essentially on top of you. This will increase the skin-on-skin surface area.

Freezing Mountain

A variation of above – build your mountain with a stack of pillows and blankets, and lean forward over it. Your partner will kneel behind you with their legs on the outside of yours as they penetrate you from behind.

The Northern Missionary

If you hadn’t guessed already, all of the positions listed are about maximising body contact with minimal effort. Wrapping your arms and legs around your partner while going missionary will reduce the gaps between the body, and will help warm the extremities!

The Bear Hug

Don’t worry, you and your partner don’t need to be yogis to pull off the lotus position. A cross between cowgirl-style action and a bear hug, lotus begins with your partner sitting cross legged (or as close to it as is comfortable, if flexibility is an issue). Straddle your partner, wrap your arms around their neck, and slowly rock back and forth. Lotus is great because again, the whole chest, from the pelvis up, is connected. That level of skin-on-skin contact will surely bring you two to a slow boil.

Nothing Beats a Cup of Tea

Here’s a fun trick to play on your partner. Brew a cup of tea; your partner will think you’re preparing to spend a cozy night tucked up, in fact, you’ll take a drink, swoosh it around your mouth, and give your partner the best oral sex experience of their life. The warm feeling is great for both men and women and can really heat things up on a cold winter’s night!

Switch it to peppermint tea for a tingly sensation that will drive your partner wild.
