How Winter Affects Your Sex Life

More sex in Winter

Ah the cold, cosy winter evenings. You know the ones we’re talking about, when all you want to do is wrap yourself in a quilt, relax in front of the fire – and have sex. That’s at least according to a number of U.S. studies regarding seasonal affects on sensuality; winter is when we all start getting a little hot under the collar (of our puffy down jackets).

Did you know that that most common shared birthday is September 16th? This means that most babies are conceived in December (August is when the least babies are conceived).

That alone doesn’t prove that winter is when we can expect an uptick in our sexual encounters, but despite the increase in conceptions, the holidays also see a jump in the sales of condoms. Twice as many are sold the week before Christmas than the week after, further indicating that many are enjoying a holly jolly holiday indeed!

And ladies, winter is when you can truly feel your sexiest, as a Polish study found that men find women more attractive in winter than in the summer months. Is it the increased coverage of skin that winter clothing provides that gets the imagination going?

Either way, it’s the perfect time of year to make the most of a slinky item of sexy lingerie, the sales of which also explode during the winter months.

So what are you going to do with your cold climate sexual upswing? You know that we have a few ideas. The chillier evenings make it a perfect time to spend with a partner getting closer with a sensual massage using massage oil candles, and to follow up a prelude like that, share some new sensations with a wearable couples’ vibrator – let it snow, indeed!
