While everyone loves the summer, sex isn’t always a great experience when it’s warm outside. Sometimes it’s just too hot for sex – everything gets sticky and those drops of sweat dripping from your forehead don’t exactly make you feel sexy either. Fortunately, there’s always a solution. With the following tips, the heat won’t be a big problem. Get ready to enjoy some hot summer sex again!
The best tips to beat the heat
1. A warm shower
A cold shower may seem very attractive when it’s hot, but sometimes things may not be like you’d expect them to be. A cold shower constricts the blood vessels, which means that your body has more difficulty cooling down. Taking a hot shower is more helpful, as it opens up your blood vessels and makes it easier for your body to cool down.

2. Use ice cubes
Ice cubes in the bedroom provide some essential cooling, and they also make foreplay a lot more fun. Slowly move the ice cube along your partner’s erogenous zones to release a delicious cold sensation. You can also stroke the ice cube along your lips to delight your partner with some ice-cold kisses!
If you find ice cubes too messy, you can also use a piece of chilled fruit or another cold object to give your partner some refreshment.
3. Temperature play with sex toys
Did you know that glass and metal sex toys are excellent for cooling down? By putting them in the freezer or in a bowl of cold water, these toys quickly take on a different temperature. When your skin comes into contact with a cold object, it becomes more sensitive, and every touch will be even more intense.
Would you like to take the excitement of your session up a notch? Use an eye mask to restrict your partner’s vision, which sharpens their other senses. This makes the sensations of the cold object even more intense.
4. Put a fan in the bedroom
If you don’t have air conditioning at home, a fan will definitely do as well. Place it strategically so that it cools both of you. Avoid pointing the fan at the genitals. The airflow can make the vagina drier, so you’d need more lubricant to stay moist.
The wind has a cooling effect on the skin and even makes you experience some positions differently. For example, a fresh breeze blowing past your buttocks makes the classic doggy style position feel very different.
5. Do it outside
Is it still too hot inside at night? Try getting out into the open air for some adventure! Not only will this cool you both down, it’s also very exciting to do it somewhere other than the bedroom. Do it in the garden, on the balcony, or take the car and find a quiet place where the chance of being caught is minimal.
Tip! Wear crotchless tights so that you can quickly get dressed again if someone walks by unexpectedly.
6. Choose the right sex positions
The more physical contact you make, the more you’ll both sweat. Fortunately, there are several positions that require minimal body contact. Try Doggy style at a slower pace, or have sex on the edge of the bed with the Hot Seat position – one partner sits on the edge of the bed while the other sits on their lap. Poses in which the woman sits on top are also very suitable when it’s hot outside.
7. Embrace the heat
When it seems hot enough to scald a lizard, you might want to take into account that there will probably be a little bit of sweating. After you’ve had sex, just take a nice shower together or keep a towel near the bed in case the sweat gets in the way. Try not to make a big deal out of it! Before you know it, you’ll be completely lost in your partner’s shiny, sweaty body.
