3 At Home Date Night Ideas For The Winter

I don’t know where you live, but it is cold here in Texas right now. Surprisingly enough, we’ve had to run our fireplace quite a bit this week. I thought it would be fun to give you a few ideas of sexy date night ideas for these long winter nights.

1. Snuggle Date

Invite your spouse to a night of snuggling. Make up a basket of warm items you can cozy up with. Put in a blanket, socks, pj’s, and hot chocolate.

Include fun things to do in the basket as well. Choose a fun movie that you will both enjoy. Of course, the top pics would include a movie that has a romance story, whether it is a comedy or drama.

Also, you can add a few packages of hot chocolate and other snacks to enjoy while you watch the movie. To really make this date night sexy, get undressed and snuggle under the covers towards the end of the movie. It will help build anticipation for activities to come afterward.

2. Enjoy Dinner In Front of the Fireplace

Light the fire and spread out blankets and pillows on the floor. If you do not have a fireplace, do the same thing in front of your Christmas tree or some soft lighting. You can even  

Put together a simple menu that you and your spouse can eat while sitting on the floor together. To make it more comfortable, place the pillows up against a wall or couches so that you both have a way to recline while eating.

Want to kick it up a notch? Make the night sexier by wearing lingerie or something revealing. Focus your conversation on sex or something sultry. It will make the night even more exciting.

3. Make Smores

If you do not have a fire indoors, you can build one outside that you can huddle around. The night sky and blazing flames are sure to give you the environment you need to have a romantic evening.

If you can, roast a few marshmallows and feed them to each other. I once saw that you can actually roast them over a candle flame. Not sure if it would actually work, but you can try!

Sexy date nights are so easy in the winter. Snuggling and cuddling in front of the fire and warm glowing lights is so much fun. Of course, don’t forget to take off your clothes at some point and enjoy some naked snuggling.

How to Talk About Your Sexual Fantasies With Your Spouse

I get it, it’s really hard to talk about sexual fantasies with your spouse. In fact, some people think that it is more intimate to talk about sex even more so than having sex. You have to open yourself up and share your feelings and emotions.

We had Jay Dee from Uncovering Intimacy on a webinar with us recently to talk about this very thing. He said that many of his readers say that they struggle in this area. He gave us some really great advice. You can check out the webinar and listen in.

If you would rather read what Jay has to say, you can head over to Uncovering Intimacy and read his post, The Best Way to Talk About Sexual Fantasies.

Top 10 Sex Positions

I received this amazing resource from the owner of Christian Friendly Sex Positions. He put together a list of the top 10 sex positions from 2017. These are the top ranking positions on his website. I would say that many couples should be able to do at least a few off this list.

Check out the hottest sex positions from this past year-

10. Packing the Suitcase


top sex positions

This position requires the wife to raise her legs above her head. If she is not quite flexible enough for that, then she should bring her legs to the side and not straight up. Instead of the husband having his arms around her legs, she should open her legs more and let them fall to the side.

9. Flatiron


hottest sex positions

Flatiron is a rear entry position that requires both husband and wife to lay on the bed. You can do this position without  using a sex pillow. However, using a pillow like that will make this position easier. Otherwise, the wife is going to need to bring her butt up towards her husband’s stomach.

8. Indian Headstand

I’ll be honest, I have no idea who has the strength to do this one. But you might be able to make something like this happen if the wife laid over a chair to help brace herself. Basically, both husband and wife are going to need some strength and agility.


 7. Jack Hammer

The husband needs to brace his hands against a wall so that he can hold himself up. The wife will pleasure him with her mouth.

6. Throat Swab


hottest sex positions

For the Throat Swab, a wife will need to lay down and hang her head off the edge of a bed. The husband will need to spread his legs and stand over her. He should gently place his member in her mouth and slowly thrust, being careful to not go too deep.

5. Reverse Grinding the Corn


hottest sex positions

A lot of women like Reverse Grinding the Corn (reverse coital alignment technique, or CAT). It is a wife-on-top sex position. It can allow for deep penetration for the husband. But, for the wife, there is great clitoral stimulation. She can also determine how deep she wants to go. 

4. Doggy Style


hottest sex positions

Doggy Style is also known as “From Behind”. This position can give a women great g-spot stimulation, but her husband needs to be aware of how deep she can handle it. Make sure there is plenty of communication between husband and wife for both to enjoy this position. 

The wife can consider using a bullet vibrator to stimulate her clitoris while her husband makes love to her.

3. Grinding the Corn

Grinding the Corn (coital alignment technique, or CAT) is a husband-on-top sex position with great clitoral stimulation. The wife should raise her hips and squeeze her butt during this position to make it more stimulating. She can also put a pillow under her bottom to get the right angle. 

2. Best View


hottest sex positions

Best View is a sex position where the wife lays on her back and the husband gets on his knees. He will need to bend his member down to insert it in his wife. The wife will need to rock her bottom down towards the bed and help to guide her husband in. 

This is a great position for the husband to use a bullet vibrator on his wife.

1. Banana Split

hottest sex positions

Banana Split is a deep penetration sex position that’s enjoyed using the edge of a table or counter top. If there is a large height difference between the husband and wife, then the shorter one should stand on a stool. This will help to get the angles right for penetration. 

I hope that you and your spouse enjoy these positions.

How to Be More Enthusiastic In The Bedroom

I had a reader ask me to share ways they could be more enthusiastic in the bedroom. This is a tough thing for lower drive spouses. Since they don’t always feel excited, they can struggle to be enthusiastic about love making.

Here’s what you can do to be more enthusiastic-

1. Admit That You Enjoy Sex

It is so important that you admit that you personally enjoy sex. This is different than saying you like having sex for your spouse’s sake. Instead, you need to embrace how sex makes you feel. Let yourself get excited about the emotions and feelings you receive from the sexual experience you have together.

2. Define What Enthusiasm Looks Like

Here’s one of those words that you really must define as a couple. As Austin and I were talking about our definition of enthusiasm, it’s completely different.

This is what he considers enthusiastic-

  • Initiate sexual encounters
  • Talk about how to have better sex
  • Make noises and share emotion
  • Not just laying there

Those are pretty reasonable expectations of what it looks like to be enthusiastic.

Me, on the other hand, have much greater ideas of what enthusiasm looks like. When I think enthusiastic, I envision taking a lot of time to look sexy, making a grand entrance, and being really energetic.

If Austin says to me, I would like you to be more enthusiastic, and I base it off of my definition, then I might very well feel overwhelmed. But, since I know what his expectations are, they don’t seem unrealistic.

The same goes for him. If I were to ask him to be more enthusiastic, he would know what to shoot for.    

3. Create One Goal To Shoot For

To be more confident in your sex life, you need small wins. So, set yourself up to win. Come up with one small goal to shoot for. If you spouse says that if you make noises, they’ll know you’re being enthusiastic, then make that your goal.

Decide that you are going to make an effort to make noise during your next 3 sexual encounters. See where it goes from there. You don’t have to check off everything from the list, just do one thing.

4. Have Accountability

have accountability for your sex goals

I know that accountability in the area of sex is not easy. We don’t tend to share our personal struggles in this part of our lives. This is a place we need to get better as Christian couples. Instead of thinking we can handle everything ourselves, we should be confiding in others that are trustworth.

There’s a few ways you can develop accountability. Here’s a few ideas-

  • Schedule sex ahead of time
  • Write down your goals in a place you will see it (but your kids won’t find it out)
  • Keep a journal with your experiences
  • Set a reminder on your phone
  • Tell a friend you trust

Don’t have anyone you can discuss sex with? That’s why we created the Love Hope Adventure Community. The group is filled with people that are comfortable talking about sexual intimacy as well as other sensitive marriage topics.

You can get on the list to join the community below-

5. Play Bedroom Games

Bedroom games take the guesswork out of foreplay and sexual adventure. Austin and I created our first bedroom game before we were bloggers. In fact, we made it for some of our dearest friends.

Of course, we had to try out our finished product. We were blown away at how playing that first sexy bedroom game revolutionized our sex lives. We had a really great sex life at that point, but the games took it to the next level.

The reason the games help so much, is that it takes the pressure off of you. All you have to do is follow the prompts and enjoy yourself. You can check out our games in our shop.

How to Approach Your Spouse After They Have Refused Something Sexual

Have you tried to go to your spouse regarding something sexual that you want to try and been shot down? I think this is pretty common in marriages. There could be any number of reasons that this happens. So, what do you do if you want to try to ask again?

Here’s a few tips to help you have the conversation again.

Be Patient and Give Time

For one thing, you need to be patient and give your spouse time. Let at least a few months pass before you bring this up again. I know that may be a long time to wait, but if you come back to them too quickly, it can sound pushy. You want to handle this gently, because if you don’t, you can make it worse.

Become Adventurous In Other Things

If your spouse is one that already struggles to be adventurous in the bedroom, then you need to work on that concept. Find something out of the usual that they do want to try and start there. If they are a person that just never wants to experiment sexually, then consider going outside of intimacy and do things in life that are adventurous.

Work together to become more adventurous as a couple in different aspects of your life and it will open the doors to more adventure in the bedroom.

Have The Conversation in a Non-Threatening Setting

One of the reasons that your spouse may shoot you down about something new, is that you sprung it on them in the middle of sex. Some people need time to be mentally prepared to do things out of the ordinary. Rather then approaching your spouse right before a sexual encounter, you should have the conversation in a non-sexual setting.

Find Out Their Hangups

There’s likely a reason they shot you down. It’s important that you figure out why they did. What’s their hangup?

These are some possible reasons-

  • Moral objection
  • Feel embarrased
  • Hygiene concerns
  • Thinks it will be painful
  • Makes them feel dirty

Really listen to why they don’t want to try the new thing. Maybe there is a way you can work together as a couple to overcome those hangups. Ask them if they have any ideas of how they can get over those ideas and try it. Again, stay patient with them.

Be Thankful For What You Have Together

It can be really easy to focus on what you don’t have versus what you do have. Be really intentional about thanking your spouse for the things they do that please you. If they feel like they keep putting themselves out there, and all you do is bring up what they don’t want to do, it won’t go over well.

Hopefully some of these ideas will help you out when going back to your spouse about a sensitive topic. If you want to be a part of discussions like this, join us in the Love Hope Adventure Community. Sign up for the newsletter below and we will send you instructions of how to join the community.
