Make sex as hot as the temperature outside.
Heat is incredibly evocative, relaxing muscles, heightening skin awareness and causing you to slow down and relax… All sexual commodities for the astute man. As the temperature rises, she's more open to taking chances and making memories. Be sure you're part of them by catering to all her sultry summer senses.
The term may be a modern euphemism for cooling off when sex ain’t happening”, but icy spritzing on a small scale can actually prolong your pleasure. When there’s a constancy in warmth, the body begins to adapt — meaning, sensitivity is decreased, so a well-timed shock of cold on sweltering skin will increase arousal. Keep a spray bottle filled with ice water next to the bed and give each other a strategic spritz to extend the encounter. Aim for the nerve-packed, thin-skinned areas on each other’s body (many of which are erogenous zones), such as the nipples, the back of her neck, inner thighs and the backs of her knees.
Just in case you hadn't already tested the theory, alcohol has a dampening effect on the brain's prefrontal cortex area, which normally controls inhibition, according to a University of Helinksi study. This loosening may account for your boosted sex drive after a glass or two. Loosen inhibitions and stock your cupboard with some summer cocktail staples, like tequila, vodka and rum, along with fruit juices like pineapple, orange and cranberry. Then, instead of faffing about mixing drinks, offer her a cocktail ice lolly – pre-made, they're unique, tasty and make a fun prop if things heat up. When you're trailing her body with your, er, lolly, pay special attention to her neck, nipples, the backs of her knees and inner thighs.

Seeing you in action is what excites her. “Penises are sexy to women,” says Tierney Lorenz, a researcher at the sexual psychophysiology laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin. “Women are visual creatures, too. In fact, both sexes are turned on more by sight than by other senses.” Toss the covers aside or place a mirror beside the bed to give her a better view and try the Magic Mountain position while you're at it.
