Let's face it, sex at your parent’s house (or worse, the in-law’s!) can be tricky during the holidays. Between bunking with the baby, all that family around, and the total lack of privacy (remember those paper thin walls from high school?), it often seems hardly worth the effort. But hey, if you’re using up your vacation time, why not shoot for some vacation fun…or at least vacation sex! In fact, by using some creativity, a few white lies and a little old-fashioned sneaking around, you can bring back that lovin’ feeling.
Silence Can Be Golden
In-laws in the room next door? Don’t worry, you can try something new: Sex without sound. Make a game of it; do all the things you usually do, but don’t make a peep. Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., sex educator at the Kinsey Institute and author of the book, Because It Feels Good: A Woman’s Guide to Sexual Pleasure & Satisfaction says this only adds to the fun. “Having quiet -- make that, silent -- sex means that you have to be creative and communicate in other non-verbal ways. You actually end up paying more attention to each other when you don't have noises as cues -- you look into each others' eyes more, nod (and look for nods of approval), or point to parts of your body that need attention.” Don’t be surprised if you use this method even after you return home.
