How To Keep Cool In The Bedroom When Things Are Heating Up

We're freewheeling it down to the hottest summer months here, and though the sun may not be particularly forthcoming, the heat certainly is.

But with the nights as humid as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.

If you're anything like me, the evenings are more an experimentation to see which combination of arms and legs flung outside the duvet keeps you coolest, rather than which combination of entwined limbs is most erotic.

Luckily, though, there are ways to raise the raunch factor without raising the temperature. We've put together a hand-selected collection of summer-friendly toys, lingerie, and bondage gear to keep you looking and feeling your sexiest through the summer months.

So whether you're getting steamy in Southampton, sizzling in Swansea, or fiery in Fife, just read on to see our sultry summer treats.


Sexy Summertime Lingerie

Whether you're looking for sexy sleepwear that won't leave you feeling sticky and uncomfortable, or a summer-y new take on seduction, we've got just the thing for you. Opt for lightweight, sheer fabrics which breathe easily, and flared shapes that skim over your body to give greater airflow.

Temperature-Play Toys

If you've never tried a temperature-responsive toy before, then now's your time. These glass, ceramic, and metal pleasure playthings can be heated (and, more importantly, cooled) in water before use for refreshing new sensations.
