Winter may be known ?as ‘baby-making season’, but in reality ‘the grind’ in bedrooms all over the world slows down to a halt when the cold hits. Turn up the heat with these sexy tips. Low libido No interest in sex? No desire to kiss, hug or be touched? You could be suffering from oxytocin deficiency. Oxytocin is the hormone that is produced when we kiss or hug our partners, thereby helping increase our feelings of love for them. Hot solution: Get cuddling, be interested – and remind yourself that sex is a really enjoyable activity. Speak to a sex therapist about other ways to increase your oxytocin levels. Skimpy undie-phobia You’ve absolutely no desire to get into lacy lingerie. You are, in fact, quite happy to curl up on your couch, dressed in your oversized nightgown and long johns. Hot solution: Slip into a hot pair of lingerie and wear it underneath a sexy gown – we promise it’s warm. You may be laughing at this idea right now, but we think it’s quite a novel way to stay hot while looking sexy. Arctic bedroom Moving from the warmed-up living room where you’ve been watching TV with the heater on full blast, to the bedroom with its freezing temperatures is definitely a total turn-off. Hot solution: Trick your mind into thinking it’s warm by lighting up candles all over the room. Invest in an electric blanket to keep your bed warm before jumping in or share a hot bath with your bae. Position freeze Adventurous sex positions become quite a challenge in winter. And tantalising positions like ‘doggy?style’, although fun and exciting, can leave you cold. Hot solution: Opt for the spooning position. The body heat generated keeps you warm. And the best thing about ?it is you can both remain underneath the covers while doing it. Icy lubes Shelve the menthol lubricants you use in summer. Their cooling effects are great for all other seasons, just not winter. Hot solution: Stock up on lubricants that ‘heat’ up ?to work at their optimum. There are? so many on the market. Or buy a massage oil, which is a flavoured and scented massage oil that heats up on your skin and can be used on intimate body areas. Kitchen blues Your hands are too cold to whip up that delicious romantic dinner for two. Seriously now, nobody’s got time for that. Hot solution: Order in your favourite meal and don’t feel guilty about calories. Winter is a time to embrace your curves. You can up the meal’s ante by snacking on aphrodisiac foods like almonds, which increase good sexual health and reproduction.
