Sizzle in the summer heat: 7 tips to stay cool while things heat up

As we tumble head-first into hotter summers (thanks, climate change!), even the most intimate encounters can become a sweaty affair. But fear not, we’ve pulled together seven cheeky tips to help you keep your cool while getting hot and bothered. So, grab your fans and let's dive into it.

1.Right place, right time:

Timing is crucial, especially when it comes to summer shenanigans. Avoid the midday sun — instead, opt for cooler mornings or late evenings. And choose a location with proper ventilation or, if you’re feeling adventurous, take your antics outdoors to enjoy the refreshing breeze ( and the thrill of getting caught).

2. Dress for success, but keep it breezy:

When it comes to summer lovin’, less is more. Lightweight and breathable fabrics like linen or cotton let the air to circulate freely around your bits and bobs. Avoid tight-fitting clothes that turn your genitals into a sauna. The same goes for your bedsheets as well, opt for the natural fabrics. And remember, a well-placed fan can do wonders for keeping things cool.

3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, darling:

Dehydration is the enemy of summer sex, so ensure you're keeping yourself hydrated. Sip on plenty of refreshing water before, during, and after.

4. Ice, ice, baby:

Introduce some refreshing chill — strategically position a fan to create a tantalising breeze. Or get your ice cube tray filled up and ready to go! The sensation of ice cubes can tease and tantalise in unexpected ways — especially when they’re used on erogenous zones.

5. Take a splash:

When the temperatures rise, why not take your intimate adventures to the water? Dip into the pool (or paddling pool if you’re on a budget), switch on a sprinkler, or take a cold shower (the best kind) to beat the heat. Not only will it cool you down, but add an extra dimension to your sex. Plus Gwen and Lennon are waterproof — so they’re primed and ready to join you on your aquatic adventures. Just make sure you practice water safety, so you don't end up performing an unintended comedy routine on a slippery surface.

6. It’s all about the thread count

If you want to stay cool between the sheets, it's it’s all about the natural fibres. Look for cotton sheets or silky bamboo fibers — these allow for better airflow, keeping you and your partner cool. If you really want to go all out, you can get a cooling mattress too.

7. Scream for ice cream

Ever wanted to try food play? Well now’s your chance! Try incorporating ice cream, frozen fruit, or popsicles into your playful encounters. Experiment with licking or drizzling these treats on each other's bodies, exploring a combination of temperature play and taste sensations. Just be sure to communicate and check for any allergies or sensitivities beforehand to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
