It’s all in the name!

Temperature play is any sexual activity or scenario involving hot, warm, cold, and/or cool temperatures. It can be kinky, sensual, etc. as it’s all about how YOU want to play! There are several ways you can incorporate temperature play into your sex life - whether solo or with a partner.

1. Heating Toys

A toy that does all of the hot and heavy work for you!? Yes please! Mainly seen in vibrators and penis strokers, some toys have a heating function that warms you up with the push of a button.

2. Warming & Cooling Lubricants

If you wanted to try out temperature play on a lighter scale, you could experiment with warming and/or cooling lubes to explore the sensations on your body. They provide the best of both worlds if you’re already a big fan of lube - which you should be btw!

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to blow! Depending on how close your mouth is to the lubed-up body part, a breath that is further away can feel cooling whereas closer to can have more of a warming effect.

3. Glass & Metal Toys

4. Wax Play

Turn up the heat with some wax play! It’s a form of temperature, sensory, and sometimes pain play; all with the use of melted candle wax (from body-safe candles). It can be both a sensual and painful experience, all depending on the level of heat. You can make it hotter by dripping it closer to the body, cooler by dripping with more height, and/or drive their senses wild by incorporating a bit of both!

5. DIY Play

Use what you’ve already got! Think ice cubes, the warm/cool temperature of water from a showerhead or faucet, the condensation from a cold drink, etc. Get creative with your hot and cold props as long as they’re body-safe.
