Horny In A Heatwave? 7 Refreshing Ideas For Cool Summer Sex

Hot weather and horniness can be a troublesome mix. Sure, you could go fap it out in the shower, but what about when you want to get up close and personal with your partner? There’s nothing wrong with hot, sticky, sweaty sex, but some people (like myself) might find it a little too uncomfortable to thoroughly enjoy. When the temperature is soaring in the bedroom – in all the wrong ways – how can you keep your cool and the intimate romance? Here’s a few of my refreshing ideas for cool summer sex.

Yeah, Yeah, Captain Obvious.

First, let’s get the more obvious tips for a cool bedroom and a cool night’s sleep out of the way. You’ll already know & be doing all these, of course:

  • Buy a fan (we have an upright oscillating tower type) or install a ceiling fan if you have a strong ceiling beam to support it.
  • Keep your curtains closed through the day to keep out the sunlight, plus make sure your windows are open.
  • Lose the duvet and just use a thin sheet as a cover (if you usually sleep with a cover over you of course. I mean, what sort of monster sleeps without one?)
  • Don’t wear sleepwear such as PJs, nightdresses or lingerie
  • Stay hydrated through the day and have water by the bedside (I love my More Water bottle)
  • Don’t eat a large meal close to bedtime as digesting it warms you up

Have You Considered…?

Ok, so you’re already doing all the above because hey, it’s what people do when the weather is hot. But here’s a few more ideas that might not have immediately sprung to mind:

  • Hire an air conditioning unit throughout the hot spell. Although air con is usually expensive to install, you may be able to hire a small unit on a weekly basis. I found one available near me (Lincolnshire, United Kingdom) for £58 per week. It’s not the cheapest solution by any means, but if you can afford it, it’s worth considering.
  • Dampen then freeze a washcloth or small towel to use when required or keep by the bed through the night.
  • Make a ton of ice cubes to use both for cooling yourself and your partner, in DIY ice packs, or to ensure really cool summer sex. I like to buy bags of ready-made ice cubes in case I forget (or can’t be bothered) to make some! You might find my DIY Sex Toys article interesting too, as it includes details of how to make a chilly dildo with water and a condom…
  • Cooling lubricant exists and it can really help ensure the chill factor during foreplay and sex. Cooling sex lubes usually include menthol which gives a cold sensation when applied on the body, whether externally during massage or for intimate use. Just make sure you do a patch test first, in case you’re sensitive to the formulation.

My 7 Refreshing Tips For Cool Summer Sex

Right, now it’s time to get down to the hot ‘n sticky nitty-gritty. When your horn is hampered by a heatwave, how can you ensure the coolest of cool summer sex? I’ve been pondering this recently, and here are my solutions:

Chill Your Bed

Just as you might prepare your bed in winter by slipping in a hot water bottle, or turning on the electric blanket, you can prepare your bed for a hot summer’s night, too. Many people have ice packs (the type you pop in your picnic hamper) and gel filled wine bottle coolers (the type that wraps around your bottle) stored in the freezer. You could pop them under your bottom sheet or in your pillow slips before bedtime to help ensure your bed is as cool as it gets.

Or, go a step further and pop your bottom and top sheets in a carrier bag in the fridge or freezer for 20-30 minutes before replacing them on the bed.

You could also try one of the Sheets of San Francisco Sheets. The fluidproof bottom sheets feel cold to the touch when you first climb on them, but to help them retain their coolness you could fridge them up a while first. Chill-tastic! Read all our Sheets of San Francisco reviews for more.

Take To The Water

Forget doing it in or on the bed, and take a cool shower or bath together at any time of the day you like instead. Start the temperature at tepid and you’ll be able to easily cool things down as your temperatures rise.

As a bonus, if you take a bath or shower together before bedtime you’ll be clean, fresh and slightly damp – which should help you to feel cool all night.

Cool Wash & Moisturisers

While enjoying your super cool aquatic raunchiness, try using a cooling shower gel. They won’t be labelled as such (well, I’ve not seen any yet), but I find minty soaps and gels have a cooling effect. My favourite for this is the Original Source Mint and Tea Tree shower gel which can give me goosebumps in the shower even on the hottest day!

After your bath or shower try applying some Aloe Vera after sun lotion instead of your usual moisturiser, as this is designed to bring your skin temperature down.

There are also sticky ‘ice’ patches available from chemists which are designed for headaches but are great for a quick cooling effect on your skin anytime you like.

Go Outside

Get frisky outside! If you’re careful and extra discreet, you could get away with making the most of the hot weather in the great outdoors. A roof area, balcony or garden which isn’t overlooked is obviously ideal, but if you’re not as lucky then you’ll have to get brave and creative. Make the most of pop-up tents, or the garden shed – or simply put the ‘wood’ in your local woodlands extremely early in the morning…

Do It In The (Early) Morning

Speaking of early in the morning, it’s generally the coolest time of day. So why not save your hot summer romp until the next morning rather than struggling through the stickiness at night? Wherever you want to get passionate, before 7am is your best bet for the coolest temperature.

Try Tantric Sex

Resist touching, and try Tantra instead. What has become known as “Tantric sex” focuses on breathing practices, focusing on heightened intimacy and deriving pleasure from an intense connection with your partner which need not include physical touch never mind sexual intercourse.

Tantric sex isn’t enjoyed with a specific goal in mind, such as someone climaxing. It’s all about the journey. Heighten your senses, and focus on light touches, massage and your breathing together.

There’s plenty of information on Tantric sex out there, as well as Tantric sex guides, so do a little research. Just make sure you set enough time aside to properly focus and enjoy it!

Lose The Pressure For Sex

My final tip for cool summer sex is to just not.

Hold up, I know this sounds strange.

But the last thing either of you needs during a hot, sticky heatwave is pressure either on yourself, or placed on your partner, to maintain a regular sex life. It’s OK not to have sex for a bit, it doesn’t mean you love them any less, or that they love you any less. Sometimes, showing you care is staying on your hot and sweaty side of the bed, thank you very much.

There’s a lot of fun to be had by watching your partner masturbate, or enjoying them watching you, or some mutual masturbatory voyeurism/exhibitionism. Or watch/be watched taking a cool shower. It’s not all about the penetration and orgasms, so go easy with your expectations -both from yourself, and from your partner.

  1. So glad summer is here. It has been so cold for too long. I am ready to hit the beach and relax away from the everyday stress that we all go through. Nothing better than swimming for a while, sitting in the sun, then repeating that over and over again all weekend every weekend :).
