For most people, Valentine’s Day falls in the dead of winter. While you’re supposed to feel warm and fuzzy–or even steamy–it might be chilly outside. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can make sparks fly with your beloved. But if you’re feeling a bit down because the temperatures are so low, you’ll find some ideas below that can help.
Heat Things Up in the Bedroom
Candles can fill any room with romance and ambiance. Their golden glow certainly makes things seem warmer. Candles can also heat things up literally. Massage candles made from super soft wax melt at a low enough temperature that you can rub the melted oil into your lover’s skin. Plus, all that touching is bound to make your temperature rise.
If you’re not so sure about an open flame–after all, things can get a little wild in the bedroom–warming massage oils are a great alternative. They warm on contact, and some, Like Sizzle Lips, even get a little boost when you blow on them. Pair them with a massage stone for an intense massage that will melt all the stress away. You can still create a warm atmosphere in the room by placing a sheer scarf over your lamp. Try ruby, rust, or golden hues to set the mood.
You’ll similarly find warming lubricants that do the same, and Intimate Earth makes an option. The friction of intercourse makes things more intense. A word to the wise: the warming effect starts subtle but can become overwhelming or even painful. Test a bit on your inner thigh and use less than you think you need. You can even mix it with your favorite lube to turn down the intensity.
Who says safer sex can’t be hot? Trojan’s Fire & Ice Condoms prove otherwise. The unique formula heats and tingles while protecting against pregnancy and STIs.
When it comes to sex toys, you’ve got quite a few options if it’s a heatwave you desire.
●Glass, metal, and ceramic toys take to temperature easily. Dip one in warm water, and it will quickly warm up! The temperature capacity of other materials varies, but many of them respond to temperature at least a little.
●Pair your favorite sex toy with warming lube.
●The Red Hot Gift Set might be hot in name only, but it’s a great introduction to sex toys for you and your valentine.
Be Sizzling in Lingerie
Heating things up in the bedroom isn’t all about temperature. Sometimes it’s about anticipation, chemistry, and a partner so sexy it makes you drool. We couldn’t write a post about Valentine’s Day without suggesting some lingerie, now could we? Even if your partner practically (or actually) rips it off you, it’s worth the effort to see the look on their face.
You can be red hot no matter the color lingerie you wear. And because there are so many styles to choose from–chemises, corsets/bustiers, teddies/bodysuits, and dresses, among others–you’re sure to find something that feels as good as it looks on you. But here are a few ideas if you don’t know where to start.
It might be cheating to include a waterproof sex blanket on this list, as you’ll probably keep it below you to minimize the mess of all the oils and bodily fluids involved in sex. Still, you can use it for warmth if need be.
