How can I introduce temperature play into the bedroom?
The thought of using ice or heat in the bedroom might seem a little odd – I mean, who wants to stick something freezing cold or boiling hot inside of them?! But temperature play can actually open up a whole new world of possibilities in the bedroom, and help you find the perfect sensation for you!
While it might sound a little bit intense, temperature play is definitely not just for the experienced players out there. It’s actually really easy to introduce a little bit of temperature fun in your sex life, no matter your experience level!
Why would I want to introduce temperature play?
Long story short, it can feel totally amazing! While rubbing ice cubes over your partner’s nipples or erogenous zones might not be everyone’s cup of tea, for many it is a very sexy and sensual experience that can be fun to play around with either alone, or with a partner. Not only is it a bit of fun and something different to try, it opens the door to new possibilities and can help you discover different ways of getting off.
Temperature play can help "shock" your senses (in a safe way, of course!), which can help switch up your usual routine easily.
Whether you've considered the idea before, or aren't even sure where you would begin, here's some beginner's tips for enjoying temp play!
Put your dildos in the fridge!

Certain products, like those made of glass and metal, can be easily put into the fridge or run under some cold water to add a chill to your bedroom adventures! These materials will hold the chill well, meaning they are perfect for temperature play. Cooling down your sex toys can be a super thrilling sensation!
If you’re new to the world of temperature play, make sure you test how cold the toy is before inserting it anywhere – you don’t want to give your body too much of a shock! However, the good thing about playing around with cooler temperatures, is that there is a low chance of hurting yourself. Just leave your toy out for a minute or two so it’s not completely frozen before play!
Another way to indulge in temperature play with sub-zero temperatures, is to simply freeze some ice cubes and bring them in the bedroom. Ice cubes can be perfect for foreplay and building up the suspense, and you can place them on any erogenous zones to take pleasure to the next level. You can also simply hold the ice cube in your mouth for a few seconds before oral sex!
You can also put your lubricant in the fridge for that cooling touch. While many lubes are made to provide a cooling sensation, this is a great trick if you don’t want to purchase more!
Turn up the heat!

Glass toys are also perfect for turning up the heat a little! Just like you can freeze your toys, you can also put them in a cup of hot water. This can be perfect for the winter months – nothing is worse than a cold toy in winter (unless it’s on purpose, of course)! Simply fill a cup with hot water, leave your toy in it for a few minutes, and you’ll be good to go. Make sure you double check the temperature is comfortable first, especially if you’re playing with a partner!
Another way to introduce temperature play into your sex life is by warming up your mouth before oral sex, or even just kissing. Sip some hot tea and let your lover squirm beneath your touch!
Or why not try out a warming lubricant?
