The holiday season is quickly approaching, which can only mean one thing: time to loosen your belts and get frisky!
Your annual family gathering might not seem like the ideal place to get it on with your partner, but adding some spice to your holiday pumpkin pie might be precisely what you need to add some excitement to your relationship.
Here are a few do’s and don’ts to help you make it through this Thanksgiving weekend.
Do: Let Off Some Steam
Thanksgiving is the first event to kick-off the holiday season, and having your whole family under one roof can cause a lot of unnecessary stress and built-up testosterone. If you’ll be introducing your partner to your family for the first time, sex can especially be a fun way to keep things light while balancing your family and reassuring your partner. Aside from just feeling good, sex releases feel-good hormones that can boost your mood and help you get through those sticky (no pun intended) family conversations.
Don’t: Stick to Your Normal Routine
Use this change of environment to your advantage. It might not be the romantic destination vacation you always wanted, but its a change-up from the norm. Experimenting with sex toys and sexy lingerie will keep things exciting and spontaneous, even in your childhood bedroom.
Do: Wait Until After-Hours
There’s no rush to jump on each other when the turkey hasn’t even been served. Wait it out; parents tend to go to bed early, and the suspense of waiting will enhance the experience altogether. If you’re worried about having difficulty performing or experiencing erectile dysfunction after stuffing your face, a medication like sildenafil can boost blood flow to your penis and get you back to being thankful. You may have to take down the picture of grandma on the wall to get fully in the mood, but that’s your call.
Don’t Be Afraid to Sneak Around
You’re not limited to your childhood bedroom- try slipping to the bathroom to get some alone time or even the kitchen after everyone has gone to bed… just make sure your parents aren’t midnight snackers! If you’re trying to keep it quiet, having sex on the floor can help avoid your old bed creaking away. However, if you still manage to bump into your cousins at every corner, use your car as a getaway and turn the heat up!
Don’t let the holiday season put you through a dry spell because the table shouldn’t be the only thing getting laid this Thanksgiving!
