Does something happen to all of us when the weather gets warmer? Yes – it’s called Spring Fever. The days are longer, the sun is brighter and we just want to wear as little clothing as possible!

It’s no surprise then that summer is the time when we find love or rekindle our existing romances – summer lovin’ so to speak. I’m not kidding – this is based on fact – 77 per cent of Canadians say that summer is the sexiest time of year*.

Here are 5 tips for hot romance in the summer:

1. Plan ahead and plan well.

Take advantage of the few long weekends during the summer that we have. Take the opportunity to leave the kids with the grandparents and take off for an adventurous trip or trick everyone and have a quiet staycation with your honey. It doesn’t matter where you go – what’s important is to spend time with your loved one usefully. Use this extra time to explore new things about each other in the bedroom that you may not otherwise.

2. Turn off the tech.

No we don’t particularly want to see selfies of you and your spouse in the bedroom but feel free to take some with your DSLR camera for your own private viewing pleasure! Summer is the best time to LOG OFF – turn off your phone, laptop and TV and give yourself a break from the chaos of everyday life. As impossible as it seems to disconnect, your mind and body will appreciate a mental break. If you redirect this energy to your partner… well then… wonderful things can happen.

3. Spice things up.

One-third of Canadians say they have more sex in the summer*. Get out of your comfort zone and spice things up by trying new and fun products in the bedroom… New Trojan™ Explore Just Pure Fun™ Gel Lubricant and Multi-Thrill™ Intimate Massager can help you and your partner indulge your senses in new ways. Trojan Naked™ Sensations® Double Pleasure Condoms provide freedom of movement for a more natural experience allowing both partners to feel infinite pleasure.

4. Pamper yo’ self.

Summer is the time to pamper yourself to frequent manicures and pedicures. It’s the time to give yourself a mini-makeover, show off those legs in a flirty new dress and get a new hair style. Feeling spontaneous? Go to a latin nightclub and dance the night away – you’ll both feel like 20-somethings again and the night will likely end up with a happy ending.

5. Get outside!

“Outdoorphins,” a term aptly coined about the natural high people experience when being out and about in nature. Whether it’s a quick walk in a park or a hike in the forest, get your blood pumping and make your heart happy with someone you love. Then you can always retreat to the bedroom for some intimate, sweaty fun.
