In the heat of the summer, steamy sex can be boiling, but cooling things down can also be fun!


Although temps may be in the triple digits, cooling off together, and have some fun, will keep your mind off the heat.

  1. Take a cold shower
    Benefits include strengthening your immune function, helping sleep, speeding up your metabolism, boosting energy levels, and even making you more attractive.
  2. Grab some ice for some temperature play
    This technique is used to stimulate the neuroreceptors under your skin, which gives the body a rush of sensations that, during foreplay, is translated into arousal.
  3. Go skinny dipping
    Getting naked more often actually improves your physical and sexual connection.
  4. Take frozen water bottles to bed
    Place one at the foot of your bed to cool off and to play footsie with your spouse.
  5. Enjoy a peppermint oil massage
    Peppermint oil has soothing and cooling abilities that freshen the skin. Add in a massage for some extra physical intimacy.
  6. Give each other a cold sponge bath
    Fill the tub, light some candles, turn on soothing music, and let the heat of the day fade away.
  7. Sleep on silk sheets
    Did you know that silk wicks moisture and heat away twice as fast as cotton? When you sleep on silk sheets, it will keep you cool when it’s hot outside.
  8. Run through the sprinklers together
    Have fun and let loose. Strengthen your recreational intimacy while playing together.
  9. Sleep naked
    Reducing your body temperature can help you fall asleep faster and also help keep you from waking throughout the night.
  10. Freeze your sheets
    Placing frozen sheets on your bed will provide momentary cooling. They will warm up because of your body heat, and yet they still offer some relief.
  11. Hang a wet sheet on an open window
    Take advantage of a breezy night to cool off differently. Plus, this can give you some privacy.

It’s hot outside, but you can cool off together. Share with your spouse one way you’d like to cool off this summer.
