What’s your sexy season?

How comfortable are you with getting steamy when the weather heats up? Take our quiz to find out – and discover some new ways to sex up your summer!

Summer brings out the sexy in most people. May be it’s the heat that makes them dress sexy, or the holiday vibe that the season brings, or just the fact that they can wear less clothes and really soak up the sun. There’s a scientific reason why you feel so sexy during the summer, too: Exposure to sunlight increases the amount of Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone (MSH) that you produce[i], and the increase in this hormone has been linked to an increased sex drive. But how can you know if summer is really your season? Take our quiz below (and don’t worry if you’re more of a wintery lover, we have some tips just for you even if you are).

Does your summer need a little sexing up? Then try our top tips:

This season, find the time for some romance – it could be for a holiday, or a day trip, or just an hour enjoying a drink with your partner at home. Summer is the ideal season to make time for romance and love, keeping the pressures of everyday life aside. Getting back to nature will also have an excellent effect on your sex life. Go ahead and use the warmer weather to strip down, and use open meadows and leafy glades to try something new and exciting to reconnect with each other. Summer allows you to get carried away a bit, and going with the flow helps you explore your own boundaries of freedom as well. Just remember to use condoms.

One of the easiest things to do when it gets too hot outside is to just jump into the shower, where you can cool down before you put on a condom and get down to it. Or if you don’t want to take a shower, you can use a good lube or pleasure gel to turn up the excitement even more. Or you could cool down by sucking on a mint lozenge before you start kissing and licking your partner – the menthol will chill their skin. Complete this act by tracing an ice cube all over their body.

When it comes to positions, to stay cool as things heat up you need to minimise skin-on-skin contact. So try woman-on-top  (such as the cowgirl) or rear entry (such as doggy style) to keep things hot and steamy.
