Who says revamping your life and embracing long overdue change is just a spring thing? Fall revamps are seriously underrated in every aspect of your life, and your bedroom repertoire is no exception. Winter is the perfect time to cozy up with your partner, a favorite sex toy, or both for some serious pleasure time, and it will be here before you know it.
You already spend some of your fall preparing for cold weather and the approach of the holiday season. Treating your intimate life to a little reboot at the same time is something you’ll be glad you did when you’re reaping the benefits next season. Here are some ideas to get you started in the right direction.
1. Redecorate your bedroom.
Chances are you already spend part of your fall transitioning the different rooms in your home from summer mode to winter. So, when you get to your bedroom, consider factoring your sex life into the mix.
Get rid of any clutter that’s accumulated over the summer while you were focused on other things. Pack away the lighter summer bedding and window hangings in favor of cozy, luxurious options in indulgent fabrics and luscious cool weather colors.
Don’t forget to finish by filling your goodie drawer or toy chest with a fresh crop of yummy lubes, erotic literature, or whatever else you like to keep close at hand. The idea is to create an inviting, sensual environment that makes lingering in bed sound like the most beautiful thing in the world.
2. Go through your toy chest.
Ideally speaking, this is something you should be doing once every month or two anyway, just to make sure your collection is in tip-top condition. But it’s definitely something to add to your to-do list if you’re planning a fall reboot for your intimate environment, especially if you maintain an extensive running collection of items.
Go through all your toys and inspect them for signs that it might be time to retire them soon. (Think frayed cords, loose O-rings, and surfaces that are cracked, discolored, pocked, or warped.) Then, treat the items left to a nice, thorough cleaning and a new charge or battery, so they’re primed and ready to go for next time.
Treat yourself to some fun new items to replace anything that was broken or that you decided just wasn’t doing it for you anymore. Here at Castle Megastore, we’re constantly updating our catalog with all the latest and greatest toy options, so there’s bound to be something there you’ll love.
3. Give your downstairs a bold new look.
Although many people tend to look forward to fall and winter as an opportunity to relax their grooming standards a bit, that may not be desirable to those who value their sex lives. It’s not just about looking your best for whomever you’re sharing your bed with, either. When you feel well-groomed and well-maintained, you tend to feel sexier and friskier overall, as well.
That said, this is a great time to consider whether it’s time to do something new in the landscaping department. Maybe you’ve spent the summer bare and beautiful down there, but like the idea of sporting a big, fluffy bush for the winter. Or perhaps it’s the opposite – that you’re an au naturel type of person who’d like to trim things back for a change.
What you do doesn’t matter. The idea is to pick a look and feel that keeps you good and excited about sex through the winter. If you like, now might be a good time to add some fun new items to your lingerie drawer, as well. Think cute seasonal options, lush jewel tones, sensual fabrics that are perfect for cooler weather, and so forth.
4. Touch base with your partner.
If you and your partner aren’t yet in the habit of talking about sex regularly, there’s no time like the present to get started. Communication is an integral part of any healthy relationship, especially sexually speaking. It’s the key to making sure both of you are truly getting what you want and need out of the things that you do.
Try integrating a sexy board game or card game into your repertoire for a fun new way to spark lively conversation and get your creativity flowing. Then, harness that momentum and use it to establish a habit of discussing sex and touching base with one another often. Trade fantasies once in a while. Enjoy some porn or erotica together. Bask in the benefits of what it will do for your sex life.
Of course, these aren’t the only ways to get your sex life in gear just in time for the cooler months, but they’re great places to start. Don’t be afraid to come up with even more sizzling options yourself!
