Ah, summer… It’s when we embrace hot weather, high libidos and a heightened sense of adventure. The time of year when everyone – single or attached – is in the market for excitement. You’ve probably heard of the summer of love, right? But do you actually know when it took place?
Probably not. And it doesn’t matter – 1967 was a long time ago. The point is, every summer has the potential to heat up your prospects and set your sex life sizzling! And if you want to increase your odds of a scandalous season, all you need to do is alter your approach to suit summer’s sexy spirit. Here’s how:
Work it out!
Work yourself up by working it out. Summer is a time to let loose and have fun. And while the very idea of a bathing suit may instill fear in the most courageous of hearts, the last thing you want to do is use your energy hating yourself – it’s too hot, and there are too many exciting things to do. So instead of spending your time worrying that you’re not the hottest person on the beach, take advantage of the welcoming weather to get outside and work that body. Not only will you get the exercise you need to look and feel your personal best (in any outfit), but you’ll get the blood flowing, which increases desire and stamina – and we all know where that can lead!
So go ahead. Go for a hike, a run or a swim. Grab your date and hop in a kayak – or if you’re a little less adventurous, a canoe. Wait until dusk, when things tend to cool down (even just a little) and take a sunset walk. Experiencing nature – however you choose to do it – puts you more in tune with your natural self. You know – the one in your birthday suit.
Spice it up…
Ever wonder why cultures born in tropical climates tend to be so sexy? Latin America, Coastal Thailand, the Caribbean, for instance – they’re just a few warm-weather destinations that inspire salacious thoughts (and feelings) in anyone who has experienced them (even second-hand). That’s because in addition to being hot, hot, hot outside, the people who live there aren’t afraid to get spicy. From tongue-searing food to hip swinging dance moves to saucy, summery libations that all but walk you to your bedroom door and turn down the sheets (or tear them up), tropical culture takes away our fears and inhibitions, replacing them with a desire to live life to the fullest – which, of course, means great food, plenty of drink, sultry music and lots of sex! And best of all, if you’re sitting there thinking there’s no way in hell you can swing a vacation, you don’t have to head south of the border to enjoy those warm-weather ways.
Try preparing a tropical meal, or mix up some Tahitian-inspired drinks and turn up the salsa music. Try all three, or one at a time. Do it at home, or head to the most exotic restaurant or club you can find. Seek out the sexy stuff in your area this summer, and don’t be surprised by what it inspires in you!
Lastly, know when to cool yourself down. If you want to infuse your love life with a real sense of summer, it’s important to take some time to cool down together. Whether in the air-conditioning, or by the beach in the breeze, give yourself – and your lover – some time alone out of the sun and away from stress, and even your summer social life. We all know it can be difficult to take a break and recharge our emotional and spiritual batteries, but knowing when to say when (even when it comes to the partying atmosphere of summer fun!) is also vital to staying connected.
After all, if every weekend is as over-scheduled as the week is, you’re bound to run out of steam no matter how hot the weather gets. And that’s the last thing you want to happen – at any time of year.
