Turn off the lights, and light a candle…
Summer is not as romantic as one would think. It’s hot, sticky, and full of mosquitos.
To top it all of kids are out of school and bored, so to entertain themselves they come eat up all your food and bother you. Even when they’re not yours.
Many of us actually dislike summer and romanticize it only in the winter when we’re freezing our butts off.
It’s hard to be intimate when you are more concerned with not melting or getting malaria than you are with “sexy time”, but millions of people around the world do it and according to Askmen.com there are a variety of benefits to receive by doing it.
Askmen.com reports that ” The act of cuddling releases a hormone called oxytocin, sometimes called the ‘cuddling hormone.’ Oxytocin is responsible for provoking what scientists refer to as ‘pair bonding’, which means it makes the cuddling couple feel closer and more intimate”.
So, basically if you cuddle with your man he won’t cheat on you.
…Not really 100% sure about that, I mean a leaopard doesn’t change it’s spots. A cheater is going to cheat on you no matter what you do or how you look.
But back to the topic. Intimacy doesn’t have to cease to exist just because it is hot outside. Some tried and true methods to intimacy in the summer are as follows:
Taking room temperature showers together
A tried and true “sexy time” location, few can dispute the showers’ dual ability to get you clean and satisfied at the same time.
But did you know that if you just turn down the water heat (and close your eyes and use your imagination) you have a romantic waterfall cascading onto you and your lover?
Getting a “pool full of liquor and dive in”
When I was in undergrad my friends did this and I couldn’t go because I was busy.
They made sure to tell me about it in detail and make me regret not going. They also made sure to throw in that my crush went! To think that I missed the opportunity to pretend I was drunk and confess my love to him and have him positively respond and then we’d be happily ever after and I would have like six kids by now took me out!
(If he’s reading this mwen renmen ou, I’m waiting for you bae!)
But despite the fact that I have yet to experience it in person, I still think that it is a great way to beat the heat while also cuddling up to a special someone.
Good old fashioned water balloon fight
Disclaimer: You may not want to partake in this option if you wear wigs and glue them down with Got2bglue. One wrong move and your wig can go flying. Yes, your man know that’s not your hair. But let him pretend for a few minutes before you put your scarf back on.
This a fun way to be intimately completive while staying cool and burning some calories! Motivate one another by making a fun prize like the loser has to be the winners slave for 12 hours.
