For most, Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial official start of the summer season. Clothing gets skimpier, drinks get fruitier and the longer days make for longer, hotter nights. Winter sex is widely accepted as being both sensual and practical - the bear-skin rugs and fireplaces! the body heat that saves money on the electricity bill! - but summer sex? Not so much. Unless fully hydrated and in a room set to 68 F, some people balk at the idea of having another person near them, let alone on top of them.
At Batteries Included, we say bring it on! “It” being the hot and sweaty mess of hot and sweaty summer sex. Alas, here’s Batteries Included’s letter of recommendation for summer sex – tips, toys and other suggestions for every budget that will have you wishing July was around the corner…
Practically free: ice cubes and a hand-held fan.
You may laugh at it’s simplicity, but don’t underestimate the power of ice being rubbed on just the right places and well-timed breeze hitting just the right spots. These “toys” work for any body type and sex play. No fan? No problem. Just put your lips together and blow…
Pair with: a Firecracker popsicle* and “Doin’ It” by LL Cool J or “Darling Nikki” by Prince.
Good bang for a few bucks: lubes and little vibrators.
A little lubricant can go a long way in terms of making sessions last longer and feel more pleasurable. Lubricants with a cooling, tingling effect are great for summer – check out Jo Premium Cooling Lubricant on our website. If you are trying to avoid body heat, consider letting a small, hand-held toy do the work for you – trace a Frisky Finger or a small bullet vibrator over any body part that would appreciate the attention.
Pair with: frozen grapes* or a chocolate-covered frozen banana* and “Strawberry Bubblegum” by Justin Timberlake or “That’s the Way Love Goes” by Janet Jackson.
Sexy splurge: Njoy toys
This is our version of heavy metal – durable, medical-grade stainless steel dildos and anal plugs by the great brand njoy toys. Stainless steel has the wonderful property of responding to temperature – you can put the toys in the fridge to make them cool to downright cold before use and let them warm up to your body temp when you use them. The best part is these toys don’t absorb bodily fluids and they are easy to clean, making them fit for use all year round.
Pair with: mint chocolate gelato* and D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does it Feel”) or “Do I Move You” by Nina Simone.
Of course feel free mix and match the toys and tips. Better yet, share your own with us. Don’t forget the sunscreen and H20 ;) Happy summer sexing!
*Food items are not recommended for sex play.
