Take a Bath Together
No spa needed – drop a few relaxing scented bath bombs under running water (nothing too girly!), and slide into a nice hot bath together. Use your favourite moisturizing, foaming body wash as a bath-friendly massage oil and work out some kinks: the warm water will help loosen muscles. Try lathering each other up with everything but your hands, or try a waterproof sex toy for extra fun.
Bring the Vacation In
No need to get a plane to feel like you’re on a tropical island. Fry up some Caribbean food, mix some margaritas, and unplug from all your devices (don’t want to get hit with “roaming” charges, after all!). Then, lay a white sheet on the bed, play some steel drum music, and give each other sensual massages for some sexy relaxation. Check out this blog post for detailed instructions.
Yoga is a fantastic stress reliever and a great way to combat the inertia that so often comes with winter. Try a yoga YouTube video, or an app like “Yoga Studio“. Follow along with your partner, with one noticeable difference: do it naked! You might have a hard time keeping your eyes on the video as you watch your partner stretch and contort their body.
Netflix and Chill
You probably already watch a lot of Netflix in the winter. Spice things up by choosing some steamy titles, and follow along with the movie. Try these:
- 9 1/2 Weeks (1986): A Wall Street mogul has an illicit affair.
- House of Pleasures (2011): Instead of submitting to men, the women of this French brothel know how to dominate them.
- Lust, Caution (2007): A young, virginal woman is tasked with seducing a most dangerous enemy.
- Secretary (2002): The original 50 Shades Explores the relationship between a sexually dominant man and his submissive secretary.
Don’t let winter get you down! There are lots of ways to increase the heat even while temperatures drop.
