I don’t know if you’ve heard the news, but we’ve entered a new portal, people. And by “portal” I mean year, and by “year” I mean a unit of measurement, although after the years we’ve had, you’d be forgiven for forgetting, exactly, how we measure time.

Anyway, here’s what we can say! It’s cold. You need date ideas. And while “cozy” is the adjective du jour during these long winter nights, there’s nothing stopping you from getting your sexy on too. You just need to dress appropriately, aka layers, which will be super fun to take off later…wink wink. 

So here are five sexy date ideas to inspire you this New Year, ranging from “quite adventurous” to “mixes well with pajamas.” Which one will you be lining up?

1. Make out at a drive-in movie.

It’s the 1950s! Just kidding, it’s the 2020s and this cute date has withstood the test of time. Drive-in movies are private, temperature-controlled exactly to your liking, and best of all you can kiss / cuddle / whatever you want to do, provided your parking brake is on. Just make sure the car is filled up with gas or electrically charged, and bring your own sexy snacks: who needs overpriced Good N’ Plenty when you can BYOC (bring your own chocolate)? 

2. Read erotica to each other at the fireplace.

If you’re looking to practice your dirty talk without the pressure of generating it yourself, why not peruse some hot erotica? Why not read them out loud in front of a roaring fireplace? Why not find a bougie hotel with said fireplace, get all dressed up, and read them to each other there, with wine possibly in-hand? Enough with the questions – I think you know what to do.

3. Seduce your tastebuds with a cooking class.

If you, like me, think of the spaghetti scene from “Lady and the Tramp” when you read this date idea – then congratulations, we can be friends. But more to the point, this is a date concept that is both sexy and useful, because you get to take home something delicious! And what’s more, you can keep those skills next time you’re whipping up something special for each other. Oops, did you accidentally just smear some sauce across your face in the most adorable way? Guess your date will have to rub it off and gaze into your eyes, rom-com style.  

4. Let the great artists inspire you (and your nudes).

If COVID left you culture-starved, get thee to an art opening and let the great masters do their magic. Chat in advance about the type of museum experience you’re craving, but do know this: just because they lived hundreds of years ago doesn’t mean the famous names of art history weren’t kinky AF. Regardless, if you’re both into art, you’re going to have a lot to talk about during and after, and as we like to say around here… communication is a lubrication. 

5. Go camping + go at it.

Depending on where you live, you might look at this date idea and go – LOL, nope, too chilly. But listen! “Camping” has a lot of guises, from tents, to glamping, to rentable RV’s and campers. And weather permitting, i.e. no blizzards, camping has a lot going for it in the sexy department: you can make s’mores by the fire, cuddle in a blanket with warm beverages, and last but not least, have sex under the stars. Did you know that winter is the best time of year for stargazing? How cool would it be to locate a soulful cosmic body and then make love underneath it? Look at you, being so astrological! 

The truth is, winter date night ideas abound, from sledding, to building a snowman, to wine tastings and chill movie nights – but hopefully, this list inspires you to mix it up, chase off the winter blues, and create some heat…the bodily kind.
