Spotlight On: Summer Lovin’ - How To Make These Summer Nights Hot, Hot, Hot!

Over the last number of months, we’ve learned a thing or two about the wide range of contraceptives that are available on the market today.

Now, we are going to continue our focus on health by studying a wide range of topics relating to sex and sexual health.


Last week, we focused on problems in the bedroom, while this week we're bringing sexy back... again!


It’s time to spice up your sex life ladies and gents, so here’s our top tips to sizzling summer loving.

Take it slow

Slow things down and make the moment last. While a quickie is all well and good, lazy summer days should equate to sensuous sexy time under the covers. Kick things off with a slow and sensual massage, throw in a bit of foreplay and tease each other to the brink. Your world will be officially rocked – we promise.


Bring it outside


But please, don’t get caught (and if you do, don’t blame us!). There’s nothing like adding an element of risk to your time together and just heading outside into the back garden will give you both a thrill. There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of being caught – but please be careful when choosing your location!


Tempting taster

There’s nothing that brings a bit more excitement into the bedroom than some props – and this time we’re talking food. Strawberries, chocolate, cream, champagne are all known for being great turn-ons in the bedroom… So what are you waiting for?



Wash it up

Hit the shower or indeed the bath (if it’s big enough!) together for some loved-up sexy time… There’s something irresistibly sexy about the two of you together all wet, and while the logistics of it all may be a bit tricky, it’s worth it.

4. Hit the shower: Try this – instead of hitting the shower together after sex, step into it beforehand. Get sudsy and wash your man’s chest and back, and have him return the favour. There’s nothing more intimate than showering with your other half. When you’re both squeaky clean, dry off and get dirty in the bedroom. If you like, shower again afterwards.

Dress to please


And we mean for you, not him. Get on your sexiest underwear, your favourite dress and heels and be sure you feel like a million dollars. Your confidence in how you look will shine through. Take that confidence into the bedroom and take control of the action, and we promise, it will lead to absolutely mind-blowing sex.

Mix it up

Take the long stretch in the evenings to try out something different under the sheets (we’ll use any excuse really!). Change up your positions, share your fantasies and don’t be afraid to try out new things. It’ll be worth it. You can check out some of our favourite ones here.


If he’s a Sagittarius… Sagittarians are the most spontaneous sign of the zodiac, so surprise him some day when he least expects it – while he’s doing the washing up, when he’s in the shower, as soon as he gets home from work – the possibilities are endless…
