Refreshing Ideas for Cool Summer Sex

Are you horny in the current heatwave? Summer sex the last thing on your mind?

Hot weather and horniness can be an uncooperative mix. There’s nothing wrong with hot, sticky, sweaty sex, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. When the temperature is soaring in the bedroom – in all the wrong ways – how can you keep your Summer sex life cool and exciting?

First, make sure your bedroom is as cool as can be.  

  • Buy a fan.
  • Keep your curtains closed through the day to keep out the sunlight…
  • Plus, make sure your windows are open.
  • Replace your duvet with something thinner and lighter.
  • Minimise the technology in the bedroom.
  • Switch PJs for lingerie.

Experiment with Foreplay

If your partner is a human radiator or the thought of full-on body contact is too much, spend more time on your foreplay. Instead of getting hot and heavy, straddling your partner, try kneeling up facing each other, or laying side by side with space between you. Explore each others’ bodies with a light fingertip trail or get saucy by putting down towels or an old sheet and add some ice cubes to the session.

Cooling lubricant, like ID Pleasure’s Tingling Sensation (£12.99, kinky.co.uk), are specifically designed to eject a cool appeal to foreplay and sex. Cooling lubes usually include menthol which gives a cold sensation when applied on the body, whether externally during a massage or for intimate use.

Chill Your Bed

Just as you might prepare your bed in winter by slipping in a hot water bottle, you can prepare your bed for a hot summer’s night, too. Why not pop an ice pack or a gel-filled wine bottle coolers under your bottom sheet or in your pillow slips before bedtime?

If you want to take it a step further, pop your sheets in a carrier bag in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before playtime.

Do It Doggy Style

Avoid positions that involve full-on body contact and go for positions that minimize body contact, like doggy style, with your partner gripping your hips while standing or kneeling. Even better is if you take the action out of the bedroom and onto the kitchen counter or table, which might provide a cooler surface to play with.  

Take to The Water

Take your sexy antics out of the bedroom entirely and try a tepid to cool bath together, or ideally, a shower which you can adjust the temperature of as you share it with your partner. Start the temperature at tepid and you’ll be able to easily cool things down as your temperatures rise.

If you take a bath or shower together before bedtime, you’ll be clean, fresh, and slightly damp – which should help you to feel cool all night. It’s a win-win situation!

Take the Fun Outside

The sun is out, and what better way to make the most of the sunshine than getting it on outside? A roof area, balcony or garden which isn’t overlooked is obviously ideal, but if you’re not as lucky then you’ll have to get brave and creative. Make the most of pop-up tents, terraces, picnic blankets, and crotchless pantyhose (£6.99, kinky.co.uk)!
