Christmas is the time for all things fun and festive, and that shouldn’t exclude your sex life. So celebrate the holidays in the right way with our seasonal Christmas sex ideas, from sex positions to products to sexy games. You’ll be on the naughty list, that’s for sure.
Who said advent calendars were just for kids? Yep, sex toy advent calendars exist! Spice up the countdown to Christmas with a lingerie advent calendar – and you can show off your gifts to your partner. The Lovehoney ‘7 Nights of Seduction’ lingerie calendar has a different wine-coloured lace piece for each day. Perfect to get you in the mood.
Or Mrs & Mrs, or whatever titles that work for you. It’s a classic Christmas game, and one that you can spice up to play by yourselves. Without showing each other, write down your answers to sexy questions, like: What’s your favourite position, sex act, sex aid, outfit or your biggest fantasy. Then, guess each other’s answers. It’s up to you how the winner is rewarded…
Lube is a must for any season of the year, but if you want to truly get in the Christmas spirit why not invest in some festive flavoured lube? Lovehoney sells this Special Edition Gin & Tonic Flavoured Lubricant, which is sure to do the trick… if you’re not too hungover.
Christmas might be a time for board games – but that doesn’t mean they need to be boring. If it’s just you and your partner playing (or you’ve got any special guests), switch out Monopoly for Monogamy, with a sexy challenge at each stage of the game.
Looking for a sex position you can safely try with family members in the next room? Lovehoney’s sex and relationship expert Annabelle Knight recommends The Love Hug. The receiving partner sits upright with the balls of their feet on the floor, which means no bed banging against the wall.
“This works because there is less thrusting (therefore less noise) and more bobbing up and down,” Annabelle explains. “You’re facing each other and can kiss which is great for added intimacy.”
This is another quiet sex position for those times when you’re staying over with family. “It’s also a really relaxed sex position if you are both feeling full after Christmas lunch,” says Annabelle. Simply lie down and take it slowly!
If you’ve got guests staying over, or you’re sleeping at a family member’s house, you’ll probably be wanting to keep things as quiet as possible in the bedroom. So why not turn it into a chance to make things more exciting?
There are plenty of ways to stifle noise, and the tension can make things more fun. “Tell your family you’re wrapping presents and not to disturb you, then turn up some music,” Annabelle suggests. “If your problem is a banging headboard or squeaky bed, move things to the floor.”
Alternatively, she suggests a modified version of doggy style, where one partner can bury their face into a pillow in order to stifle any sounds.
You might hate the cold, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it to your advantage! Cold hands will feel amazing to be touched with, so when you come inside from the icy weather hold off on warming up your hands and head straight to your partner.
Being stuck inside over the Christmas holidays is the perfect time to experiment with all the different household locations you don’t usually have sex in. The kitchen, the bathroom, even the stairs: it’s all yours.
Christmas is the time for relaxation, right? And what better way to relax than with a bath bomb with a cheeky bullet vibrator hidden inside? The Lovehoney Oh! Sex Bomb Sexy Surprise Bath Bomb does exactly that. This gift is a great way to surprise your partner, and it’s the perfect hiding spot for a sex toy if you’re staying over with family. Literally – it’s impossible for anyone to find it.
For men and people with penises, you can also try a bath bomb with a hidden cock ring inside, with the Lovehoney Oh! Sex Bomb Sexy Surprise Bath Bomb for Him. No one need feel left out!
While we’re on the topic of hiding sex toys from family members, the Lovehoney Oh! Kiss Me Lipstick Vibrator disguises as part of your make-up bag – perfect to surprise your partner with when you unpack your suitcase!
If you want to make your sex toys even more discreet, the Tingletip Electric Toothbrush Clitoral Vibrator literally attaches to the end of your electric toothbrush. Simply switch it out for your usual brush head and any family members will be none the wiser! Plus, it’ll be a nice surprise for your partner.
Christmas is the time for eating, after all. And what better time to bring some tasty treats into the bedroom? Fruit like strawberries or sweets work well – and it’s up to you where you put them. Or try licking some honey off your partner’s body. You’re sure to work up an appetite.
Treat each other to an early Christmas present with a sexy massage each. And make things feel more festive with a Christmassy scented oil, like this Vanilla Kissable Massage Oil from Lovehoney.
You don’t need to buy a sexy advent calendar to get involved in the fun. Create your own calendar by each writing 12 of your favourite sex acts on separate pieces of paper, then place them in a bowl. You’ll have 24 in total – one for each day of December until Christmas Eve.
Christmas is the time for fancy dress, so why not get into the spirit with some role play? Choose an idea that you’re both into – sexy Santa outfits optional.
Bored of playing Christmas games? Play a game of your own with some sexy dice like Lovehoney’s Oh! Kama Sutra Sex Dice. You’ve got three dice with different instructions: a sex position, how to do it and where to do it. Beats Uno, right?
Erotic lingerie can give us all a little boost, so why not get into the festive spirit with a sexy red outfit? Be rude not to, really.
Candles are a Christmas must-have, but if you find yourself drowning in cinnamon spice then put them to good use in the bedroom. If you’re feeling adventurous, try safely delving into wax play. Melted wax can feel amazing on skin, but a good tip is to drop it from a height of at least two metres so that it has time to cool before it reaches the skin.
All those Christmas card games become a bit samey after a while, so make things more exciting with a sexy card game of your own.
On five cards, write five different character combos, whether it’s couples or groups. Then write five different locations and five different sexual accessories on separate cards.
Shuffle each deck, then take turns to pick up cards and tell each other an erotic story. Let your imagination go wild!
