7 Ways To Add Some Holiday Cheer To Your Sex Life
Between decorations, seasonal sales, and ugly Christmas sweater parties, you can’t do anything these days without being reminded that it’s the holiday season.
And while you’ve got the whole gift-giving thing on lockdown, it’s important to treat yourself—and your sex life—this time of year, too.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up all the ways you can inject a little holiday cheer into your sex life. Try one or all of them to make this season one you (and your partner) won’t forget.
1. Get Santa In On the Action
At first glance, Santa’s Lil’ Helper ($9.74, spencersonline.com) looks like any old Christmas decoration—but it can do so much more. Flip it on, steer it south, and you’ll be saying “Ho, ho, oooh.”
2. Go Red
Men pretty much get an insta-boner whenever red lingerie is present. And lucky for them, it’s the holiday season’s hottest color. Slip into a red lacy number like Victoria’s Secret’s Sexy Little Things Lace Teddy ($29.50, victoriassecret.com), and let the holiday spirit take over.
3. Holid-ize Your Protection
Have him stuff his package into one of these festive stockings (or, um, condoms). Because Christmas is the most magical time of year for sex, several condom companies are rolling out holiday-themed rubbers, just in time to celebrate the season. Try Christmas Sheath condoms ($3.49 for three, condom.com) or whip out a pack with a naughty holiday message ($2.57 for three, sayItwithacondom.com).
4. Get Nippy
Want to see your man bust out a spontaneous rendition of “O Christmas Tree” in the bedroom? These Christmas tree pasties should do the trick ($25, etsy.com).
5. Break Out the Mistletoe
Grab several bunches of mistletoe or order the fake stuff online ($1.99 each, factorydirect.com) and hang it all over your place—above your bed, over the couch, and, of course, by the front door. Then, encourage your guy to pucker up every time you pass under one. #aw
6. Indulge in Holiday Treats
Use candy cane and gingerbread lube during oral for the most festive blowjob ever ($9.87, amazon.com). Take turns with the flavors to really get in the holiday mood.
7. Light It Up
Got extra Christmas tree lights? Hang them around your headboard or bedposts and do it while bathed in a holiday glow. Bonus: The low light is flattering for everyone.
