If you’re looking to light up your holiday weekend, here are a few ways to create some fireworks in the bedroom for the unofficial start to summer.
THE OPENER (AKA: FOREPLAY)
Every good firework show has an opener. You know, the occasional bottle rocket that fizzes into the air right before dusk that lets the people know… it’s time. There’s nothing sweeter than anticipation and the same is true for sex! Let foreplay be your opening act to let your partner know things are about to heat up!
TRY A STEAMY MASSAGE:
Hands-down, a sultry massage is one of our favorite ways to create sparks in the bedroom! There is no better segway into sex than the touch of skin on skin and stress melting away with each caress. Incorporate HeLi Massage Oil Infused with Hello Libido or textured massage gloves into your massage to add another dimension of seductive sensations!

WATCH PORN TOGETHER:
Ain’t no shame in the porn game, hunny! Chances are, both you and your partner have watched porn before, separately. So, why not together? Watching porn with a partner can be a huge turn on and can also help encourage communication about each other’s likes and dislikes and spark ideas about new things to try! Sharing in the excitement about what you’re watching on screen makes what’s about to happen in real life that much hotter!
THE MAIN ACT (AKA: SEX)
Things are really starting to heat up! Sex is like a firework show in more ways than one. It’s always “good” but there’s a difference between a Disney show and the city park. If you want the former, here are our tips on how to fan the flame!
ADD A VIBE:
A study in The Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy finds that 36% of women need clitoral stimulation during intercourse to reach orgasm. Adding a vibrator into the mix will not only deliver stimulation to the clitoris during penetrative intercourse but if your partner has a penis, using a couples toy like Come Together can also make their erection last longer! If you’re not sure how to breach the subject with your partner, read our advice about Introducing Sex Toys Into the Bedroom.
STRIKE A NEW POSITION:
We don’t know who needs to hear this but there’s more to life than the missionary position. Switch it up and try something new! (Maybe even something you saw in that porn you watched earlier?) if you need some inspiration, check out what the people had to say when we paired up with OnePoll and asked Americans what their favorite sex positions are!
THE GRAND FINALE (AKA: THE BIG O)
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for– Just like a stellar firework show, the grand finale of your night between the sheets should be ended with a BANG! We promise, after these last tips, you and your partner will be seeing stars!
ADD AN ENHANCEMENT:
One of our newest products for enhancing your big O is ExciteMint! Make the night sizzle and bring tantalizing heat with Excitemint warming clitoral gel. Formulated with niacin and stimulating botanicals like clove and peppermint, this warming, tingling formula heightens sensation, so every single touch excites and delights. Better yet, it’s powerful enough for your partner to enjoy, too! Check out our Enhancement Guide to find which cream or gel is best for you!
A NEW WAY TO O:
There isn’t a “right” way to reach the big O. If you have a vagina, you probably reach your orgasms with clitoral stimulation. If you have a penis, penetration probably does the trick. Mix it up and find new ways to orgasm! Try Close Contact or Oh Em Gee to experience the legendary G-spot orgasm or try Behind The Scenes to stimulate the prostate for a mind-blowing grand finale!
