Top Tips For Safe And Steamy Holiday Sex
It’s the season of sun, festivals, and maybe a week or two away from home. Summer is a time when we can feel happy and carefree, liberated from layers of clothing and sporting a healthy sun kissed glow. There’s no doubt that an exotic location or just some sunny weather can bring some great sexual opportunities.
Here are some tips to make sure that you get the most out of holiday sex, and also stay safe.
If you are carefree and single
Summer holidays for singles are full of sizzling erotic potential! However, you want to make sure that all you bring home with you are some steamy memories. Before you go, take an STI test so that you can have peace of mind that you are healthy and will not be putting any sexual partners at risk.
Take plenty of condoms with you and carry some in your bag at all times so you are always prepared. However, do not keep them in your purse or wallet and this can cause them to overheat and be more at risk of breaking. Always store them in a cool dry place.
Even if you take an oral contraceptive, it’s important to use condoms with a new partner to protect yourself from STIs. The change in routine may also make you forget to take the pill, so it’s best to take the belt and braces approach.
If you are going abroad, research the location. Some resorts are more set up for single people, whereas others are more geared towards families. Make sure you are going to have the best chance of meeting like minded people.
If you meet a potential partner, make sure that there is mutual consent for sexual activity and that neither of you are too under the influence of drugs or alcohol to be fully aware of the situation. Choose a comfortable private place to have sex and be respectful of the local culture.
If you are going away with a partner
Going away with your partner can be a chance to reset your sex life away from the stresses and strains of your everyday routine. You don’t need to worry about getting a supermarket shop in after work or loading the dishwasher, so take advantage of your liberation and try something new in bed.
Try out some new positions, or spend longer on foreplay than you normally would. Focus on the sensual build up to sex as well as the act itself. Maybe try a few props, such as a blindfold or some ice cubes to stimulate the erogenous zones. Talk to each other about what really turns you on, and be willing to experiment as far as you feel comfortable.
A sex toy starter kit can be a good way of introducing some novelty into an established relationship. Take the chance to try out all those things you’ve secretly longed to do but never quite had the time or energy for!
