In the words of Lana Del Rey: ‘It’s f***ing hot.’
Yesterday the mercury hit the high 30s in some parts of the UK, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be cooling down any time soon.
While sex is regularly described as hot and steamy, if it gets way too hot it can be almost uncomfortable.
And, while you can take some time off having sex when it’s super muggy and humid, in a heatwave like this there’s bound to be moments when you’ll need to find a workaround.
Here’s hot to have hot sex when it’s hot outside.
Although reverse cowgirl is almost the same as cowgirl, the fact that your chests and mouths aren’t facing towards each other helps cool it down a little.
It’s a great view for the person on the bottom, and the person on top doesn’t need to grind too much and exert themselves to feel a whole lot.
This position is great for clitoral stimulation and anal.
The wheelbarrow initially seems like one of those positions that only a tantric master would be able to do.
But if you get into it in stages it’s much less daunting, and the lack of full body contact makes for heatwave friendly thrusting.
Get the person with the penis to sit on the edge of the bed, and the person who’ll be receiving to sit on their lap (also facing outwards).
Then, the receiver bends down until their hands are on the floor, with the giver holding on to their legs as they straighten them.
The receiver walks their hands out on the floor and the giver stands up still holding their partner’s legs.
Doing this anywhere near a fan means you’re basically having the coolest sex possible.
Ice cube play
Temperature play uses cold and hot items to stimulate erogenous zone in the body. But let’s face it, we’re not going to be going anywhere near the warm side right now.
Blindfolding your partner and softly moving an ice cube across their skin can be a unique part of foreplay, and cool you down as well as arousing.
Some people also like to use lightly melted ice cream, ice poles, or frozen fruit to add the element of taste to the mix.
Just make sure to keep sweet stuff away from vaginas (no one wants a yeast infection) and incorporate a safe word so they can let you know if they’re not comfortable at any point.
Wet t-shirt contest
Okay, this is isn’t the standard wet t-shirt situation you’ve probably seen in American teen movies.
But wearing a while t-shirt and having your partner spritz you with water while caressing you and kissing is pleasurable in more ways than one.
The damp tee will keep you chilled, but show off all the contours of your body – no scratchy lingerie in sight.
Then you’re free to ride your partner into the sunset.
Shower sex is a bit hit and miss in the real world. Water acts as an anti-lubricant causing friction, and the standard shower has little by way of grip.
Needs must sometimes, so if you’re thinking about having shower sex there are ways to make it great.
You want to get yourself a silicone-based lube. Water-based lubricants will wash clean off and oil-based aren’t safe for use with condoms. This will give you the movement you want.
Just keep silicone lubes away from sex toys as they can break down the material. LoveHoney has a great range.
If you have a shower in the bath, use this for leverage by popping a leg up or adopting a seated position.
If you opt for doggy-style, make sure the receiving person has somewhere to put their hands and that they’re nowhere near the temperature controls.
Failing all this, you might as well just embrace the sweat, and have an ice lolly or pop a cold flannel on your head once you’re done.
