The holidays are, without question, a sexy time. While I enjoy being a single gal for 11 months of the year, the month of December is always cause for reflection on my lifestyle. From the outside, the holidays seem like such a fun time for couples. Between choosing thoughtful gifts for each other, attending office holiday parties with a plus one, decorating the tree and baking cookies, everything seems like it would be more fun with a partner.
I haven’t even started in on the effects of the cold weather. Body heat and fireplaces and hot baths and increased cuddliness… I have apparently created a holiday rom com in my head, rife with all of the sexual energy and mistletoe meetings you’d expect. So if it were up to me to plan sexiest holiday getaway, here’s what I would suggest:
1. A cabin in the woods. The movie version of this vacation includes lots of flannel and wool socks, a fireplace and peppermint tea. Throw in a bearskin rug and some handcrafted wood furniture and you’ve got the sexiest camping set up I can imagine. Who cares if there’s no tv and the electricity is spotty? All you need for a little romance is some candles and a bit of skin-to-skin heat transfer, ifyouknowwhatImean.
2. Skiing in the Alps. Let’s pretend for a moment that in the movie version of this scenario, we are all independently wealthy and we all know how to ski. Let’s head to the Alps (I can personally vouch for the adorable quaintness of Chamonix, France) and spend the daylight hours skiing and the evening hours soothing our muscles in a hot tub. And everyone knows “hot tub” is just code for “get naked and make out”, so I think we all know where this night is going.
3. Somewhere tropical. I’m not too particular when it comes to beach vacations. My only requirements are that it is all-inclusive, I can walk to the beach, and there is a spa. Mexico, the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean, Fiji, sign me up. I will spend my days sipping drinks by the pool to get me loosened up for the nights spent dancing and falling into bed. Bonus points if the local language sounds romantic.
4. Volunteering in a third world country. I hope I’m not the only one who would love to do this over the holidays one day. On the surface it might not sound as sexy as snow capped mountains or white sandy beaches, but helping others is a passion of mine and watching the man I love get as enthusiastic about doing good as I am? Well, there’s nothing sexier than that.
What’s your sexiest dream vacation?
