6 Ways to Make Winter Sex… Well, Sexy

There’s nothing quite like winter sex. You know, if you play your thermostats right.

It’s hard to say why our sex drive plummets in the winter… oh, who am I kidding? The reasons are a plenty: It’s freezing and taking your clothes off equals more freezing, not to mention the 45 minutes it takes to strip off all your layers. Then there’s the shaving dilemma: You don’t want to shave because the extra layer of insulation really comes in handy, but the second you don’t your beau’s not going to bust out his “let’s get it on” face, leaving you to feel about as attractive as Chewbacca. And that’s just the tip of the libidoless iceberg.

As the temperature drops, here are 6 ways to make sure your sex drive doesn’t drop with it:

1. Get your flirt on

Love isn’t all about sex, so it’s important to flex your flirt muscles every once in a while. Recreate the flirty feeling that connected you two in the first place: Head to your fave bar and kick his ass at pool, relive your first date, have an indoor picnic and pretend it’s not 50 below outside. And should all the flirting lead to increased nookie, well…

2. Give your bedroom a makeover

It doesn’t have to be an extreme makeover (well, unless the result is Ty Pennington coming over), just a teensy facelift to turn your bedroom into a romantic haven for the two of you. After all, us ladies thrive on the warm and fuzzies.

3. Flannel sheets

My winter sex theory is: If you want me to strip off my nice warm clothes, then you need to offer me an equally warm location for all that shivering nakedness. Owning several sets of flannel sheets should basically become a winter sex law.

4. Take a bath together

Same idea as above: Make sure you have a hot and steamy place to get hot and steamy.

5. Bring sexy back

Even though your winter style staples include slouchy sweaters and Flashdance-inspired leg warmers, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear something scandalous underneath. (It’s what’s on the inside that counts, HA.)

6. Layer strategically

Winter layers limit easy access, but if you layer strategically, this doesn’t have to be the case. It’s the best of both worlds: A hot, steamy quicky where you don’t have to get entirely undressed, and a hot, steamy body temperature so he’s not stuck doing an icicle.

How do you keep winter sex from getting all… well, wintery?
