Get It On in the Great Outdoors!
Summer’s almost here, so heat up your hookups with these eight tips for mind-blowing sex al fresco.
1. Reach new heights. If you’re not ready to take the plunge into full-blown woods-or-beach banging, try sex on a balcony first. “It offers a balance of thrill and security. You may be visually exposed to the world, but you can always slip inside if the thrill of exhibitionism proves to be too much,” says Jessica O’Reilly, Ph.D., a sexologist and the author of Hot Sex Tips, Tricks, and Licks. “Get creative with the railing to try new positions and take on varied views of the world below you. If you don't have a balcony, your backyard may be the perfect getaway—just bear in mind that you'll always be subject to your local laws.”
2. Think like a boy scout. Here are the three most important words to keep in mind when it comes to sex outdoors: Always. Be. Prepared. Sure, it seems obvious now, but nothing is worse than stripping down and realizing you forgot a condom—or worse yet, bug spray. “At a minimum, bring a blanket or sheet, some insect repellent if you're in the woods, and sunblock if you're on the beach,” says sexologist Gloria Brame, Ph.D. “You want sweet memories to remind you of your adventure, not painful burns on your ass.”
