Out go all my wild ideas and adventurous tendencies in favour of flannel and hunkering down. Racy skin exposure is replaced by lots of warm huddling under the covers. Sleepy and slow is the way I would describe winter sex, compared to the frisky frolicking of the sunny months. The challenge is to be happy with the difference and the changes. Mastery comes from appreciating all that is delicious and subtle in the winter mode, and cultivating a big-hearted approach with the tendency to take all of this personally.
There is nothing wrong with me or my partner when we feel the effects of a long dark winter. There are plenty of other ways we can connect and weather the season intimately. I notice the quality and depth of our winter meals; hearty nourishment that fills my belly and delights my taste buds. I revel in my clothes; the many weights and textures of comfort. I adore essential oils; anointing myself daily to feel warm and supple.
This year we enjoyed a couples’ visit to the Boudoir photographer. We also make the most of our Sexy Sunday Series afternoon Tantra class. I expect a visit to a sumptuous hotel room is in my future, as well. Candlelight and a fragrant bath, definitely.
What are some of your favorite ways of feeding the flames of passion under all this snow? I would love to know ~
