Here's a brilliant idea for saving on energy bills as temperatures cool: Make your own damn heat. With these scorching bedroom tricks, you may have to put the fire department on speed dial.
1. Have a naughty-movie marathon. Rent a bunch of flicks with famously steamy sex scenes. How could you not get inspired?
2. Intensify his orgasm by placing two fingers an inch behind his balls. For the last 30 seconds before he comes, massage the spot in circular motion.
3. Tie two or three knots of a nylon stocking and gently wrap it around the base of his penis so it's snug, yet has grip. The compression makes him even more sensitive, and the knots stimulate your clitoris as you move in girl-ontop.
4. Put a small mirror out to the side, parallel to his body, while you're going down on him-he'll have an eye-popping view.
5. To make his orgasm explosive, gently squeeze the base of his penis for five seconds before he comes, and then release.
6. Close your eyes and masturbate in front of him. It's a turn-on because he'll feel like the only viewer of a private porn show.
7. Text your man racy one-word messages that, when strung together, hint at what you want him to do to you that night.
8. Make a playlist of sultry songs, and set it to shuffle during sex. Change up your pace and mood to match each new tune.
9. Buy a small, bullet-shaped vibrator that has a remote operation. Hold it over your clitoris, and hand him the controls.
10. While your man is hard, use one hand to push his penis up towards his stomach. Lick the underside of his shaft by keeping your tongue flat and moving your head from side to side to cover more surface area.
11. While he's giving you oral sex, tell him to insert a finger in your vagina and stroke your G-spot with a come-hither motion.
12. On a cold, rainy day, pick five spots in your apartment, and challenge each other to have sex in every one before sundown.
13. Get it on outdoors in a sleeping bag in your backyard. The cosy space makes missionary position even more intimate.
14. For increased sensation for both of you, apply a warming lube designed for sex to his penis right before he enters you.
15. Straddle your guy, then lean forward and rest your upper body on his torso. Bring one leg out to the side, and bend it so that the inside of your leg is against the bed. Then straighten the other leg, and slide it in between his legs. You'll be better able to rock your clitoral area against his pelvis.
16. As your man goes down on you, ask him to draw figure eights with his tongue over your clitoris so he hits every angle.
17. Challenge yourselves to have sex every day for a month.
18. Before sex, take a hot shower together and rub each other's bodies with salt scrub. The steam and rubbing action will stimulate the nerve endings and blood flow.
19. Sit on the sofa with your legs spread, feet on the ground, and your hips slightly off the edge. Have your man kneel in front of you and enter you, then use your legs and arms to slide yourself up and down on him.
20. Explore tying each other up by getting a sport sheet, which slips over your bed and has four Velcro restraints at each corner, you could get one made.
21. While on top, straddle your guy and clench your legs so his arms and torso are pinned down. As he keeps still, roll your hips, switch to counterclockwise, then back, every 30 seconds.
22. Play porn star by bringing a camcorder into bed to view yourselves. But don't record the action-just seeing each other through the lens is a huge turn-on.
23. Trade butt-cheek massages, using firm, kneading motions to stimulate the surprisingly sensitive gluteus muscles.
24. Ignite all his senses by giving him light, fluttery, barely there kisses all over his body, from his forehead down to his toes.
25. Kiss and lick your way down his torso, stopping short of his penis, then give him a smile and work your way back up. Repeat several times until he begs for mercy.
26. Pop an erotic film into the DVD player, and let the noises serve as inspiration-you'll feel like you're in the midst of an orgy.
27. Build momentum by keying in to an ocean legend, that the seventh in a series of sea waves is the strongest. Lie on your back on a bench and have your man make every seventh thrust his most powerful.
28. For a superintimate move, have him sit Indian-style (with legs crossed) on the bed or floor. Then straddle him, wrap your legs behind his back, and rock back and forth.
29. When out at a party, lean your back against his body so to others it looks like you're just affectionately resting your body on him. Then subtly grind your butt into his package instead.
30. Try side-saddle position for a more unique and snug fit. Make a bridge with your arms behind you on one side of him and your legs in front of you on the other. Then slide yourself down his penis.
31. Flash back to high school by keeping your panties on during sex. He can massage you through the fabric-with both his hands and his mouth-as foreplay. Then, when you're begging for skin-on-skin contact, have him pull the panties to the side.
32. Put lube on his penis, then get on top, slip it between your labia, and slide up and down along his shaft, targetting your clitoris.
33. In girl-on-top position, lean back and place both hands on the bed behind you with your head tilted back. He'll get a full view of your breasts and torso and a tickling sensation from the feel of your hair on his legs.
34. When giving him oral sex, invite him to finish on your breasts.
35. Run your fingertips over your nipples and gently squeeze your breasts in your hands, all while holding eye contact with him.
36. Put a frozen grape in your mouth and warm it up a bit. Then hold it between your teeth and glide it down his neck, around his nipples, and over his lips. Finally, use your tongue to slip the grape into his mouth.
37. Have him tease you by varying his thrust technique: entering you with just the tip and then going only halfway in or stroking you on the outside with his member. He can even swirl inside you, in a circular motion.
38. In the middle of intercourse, dig your nails into his butt and pull him in closer.
39. When he's giving you oral sex, have him approach you at a perpendicular angle so he can move his tongue across your clitoris, rather than up and down. It's easier for him...and superintense for you.
40. While kissing him, lick and suck his tongue to simulate action below his belt.
