Winter is coming: top five best things about post-semester sex
By Viv Steele, Sex Correspondent
This is my last column of 2012. I’d like to first and foremost thank you for reading along with me so far. It’s been a pleasure to write sexy stuff for you all, and I hope you’ve found my advice entertaining, if not informative. I welcome all feedback from you lovely readers! You can ask me anything at firstname.lastname@example.org, as I hope to incorporate some questions and answers into Between the Sheets in 2013.
Now, onto the good stuff! You may have felt a bite to the air lately. It’s getting cold. Not only that, it’s getting dark earlier, and your schedules are getting chock full of exam prep and term papers. And due to this seasonal stress, you probably haven’t felt too keen on getting sexy with your partner of choice. This isn’t the best time for the delicate psyche of a college student, but I’m here to tell you it gets better. Those exams will come and go, and soon you will experience several days of bliss, free of textbooks and group projects. So, keeping the end in sight and positive thoughts on your mind, here’s my top five best things about sex when it starts to get chilly!
Morning sex. Turn off that alarm clock, because you’ve got some extra time! Getting a dopamine rush from an early morning orgasm can be just what you need to blast away those late-December doldrums. Sex first-thing can increase intimacy in a relationship, if you’re comfortable braving morning breath to achieve that intimacy. If you’re not keen on a pre-fuck trip to the bathroom to freshen up, keep a couple big glasses of water by the bed.
Sex in socks. Ahh, socks. The most underrated sexual accessory. Studies have shown that having cold feet reduces the likelihood of achieving orgasm, and don’t we all want to make that o-face on the regular? Warm up those puppies with the cheesiest socks you have. I promise it’s sexy.
Athletic sex. So maybe you don’t relish the idea of fucking under a giant duvet to keep your naked bodies from freezing to death. If you’re not into the romantic, gazing-into-each-other’s-eyes missionary-style sex that cozy bedding facilitates, then athletic sex, designed to keep you active (and warm!) is probably for you. Sex against the wall, sex in the shower, or sex in kneeling positions are all good options. Pick up a Kama Sutra guide for some advanced moves.
Touch, touch, touch! Winter is the best time for those hot ‘n’ heavy, close-up activities like hot oil massages (or just the regular type). Cuddling is also sensual and warming, or maybe some sexy wrestling is more your deal. Take advantage of the cooler temperatures, because come summer, you’ll be wanting to separate your sweaty selves.
Festive role-play. Maybe I’m alone here, but there’s something sexy about Santa costumes. Okay, I’m definitely not alone, judging by the proliferation of such items at every single lingerie store this time of year. The spoils of the season can be used to spice up anyone’s love life, from a romantic string of lights strung up by the bed, to a flirty and sexy red negligee with fluffy white trim. So ho, ho, ho, and happy fucking!
