As Spring takes hold and we begin to have the first indications that Summer is right around the corner, it got me thinking about the ways sexual relationships might differ based on the time of year. Of course sex is delightful regardless of it being May 1st, July 15th or November 28th but it seems to me quite likely that the weather, amount of sunlight and the average temperature may influence our approach to sex. So while I’m not suggesting that there is an optimal orgasmic equinox, I do believe the concept of Sexual Seasons is something to take seriously.
Let’s start with Springtime since that’s where we are in the current seasonal calendar. Winter is making its exit and there is the hint of new life, new color with trees coming alive and flowers taking bloom. The sun is sticking around a bit longer and we are coming out of hibernation to take in fresh air. As far as a Sexual Season, I see Spring as the time of year when we might feel more flirtatious and daring. We’re coming out of the Winter cave and feeling the need to be SEEN. Parts of our bodies that have been covered in coats and gloves and sweaters are now being kissed by sunlight and that can definitely be an aphrodisiac. It’s a great time to expand your sexual horizons by learning new sexual skills such as erotic talk, sensual massage, role-playing or Tantric sex. Having sex in Spring is refreshing as it’s warm enough not to shiver, but cool enough not to sweat. It’s so romantic to kiss while hearing the birds singing during a nature walk or feeding each other on a picnic at the park and it will make your Springtime more magical and memorable.
Summer dating brings people closer together because you’ve got the hot-weather lust, which makes it easier to be spontaneous, there’s more fun things to do and your sex appeal is smoking’. There is also biological evidence to prove that sunshine increases sex drive and makes you feel more sexually aroused. So, walk around your home naked to save money on air conditioning and put your undies in the freezer, then slip them on before you go out on a date. If you’re in a relationship, take advantage of the warm weather to add more sizzle to your love life. Take a cool shower together and soap each other up with shower gel. Then use your bodies as a human sponge and slide from side to side, up and down until you’re both squeaky clean. For the finale, give your lover a treat with some oral love. Making love outside can be even more exhilarating than doing it inside; Sex under the scorching sun is outrageously wild whether it’s spooning on a deserted beach or camping in your backyard, you’ll create erotic memories that you can share together for years to come.
As Autumn presents itself, we start to pull each other close. While the colors start to fade on the trees, our passion settles a bit. What was a negligee may now be a flannel shirt and wool socks. By the way, Dutch scientists reported that women are 30% more likely to orgasm when their feet were warm, with socks on. We find ourselves doing the things to grasp the last vestiges of hot summer lovin’ while also beginning the pouty prep work for the Winter ahead. While the leaves fall, you too can fall in love or lust by rolling around in some just-raked leaves. As it gets darker earlier, it gives us more time to be romantic under the moonlight and as it gets lighter in the morning, it lends itself to more time for morning sex in bed or in the shower. Either way, it will make your days and nights during the Fall season more sexually fulfilling.
Winter brings days filled with the most darkness so, light a fire, snuggle close and keep each other warm anyway possible, even if that means rubbing bodies together like kindling. The more sex you have, the hotter you will get, so be sure to make love in all six basic positions; Missionary, Doggie, Cowgirl, Spooning, Standing and Scissors. And if you want to start a family, you are in luck because according to a new study out of Israel, doctors discovered that men with normal sperm production actually produced sperm in greater numbers, that was faster and with fewer abnormalities, in Winter. Perhaps this explains why August sees more babies born than any other month of the year.
So what are your thoughts? Do you believe in the concept of Sexual Seasons? Do you find that your sexuality evolves over the course of the year, or do you feel the same about sex on the Forth of July as you do on New Year’s Eve?
