If you find yourself spending a lot of time at home right now, why not turn that time into a sexy staycation? A staycation is your chance to say aloha to paradise without ever having to step out of bed. Think of your bedroom as your own private getaway – your vacation from the daily grind, if you will.
The best part? You don't have to worry about someone down the hall or in the room below blowing your night with a noise complaint. Oh, and not having to exhaust time, energy, and money on travel is another luxury that comes with planning your own sensual staycation, of course.
To truly evoke paradise beneath the sheets, we're here to give you a few pointers that apply whether it's a solo trip towards self-pleasure or a second honeymoon in your bedroom.
Set the Scene
If you're looking for a change of scenery, investing in nice sheets, candles, blackout curtains, and a few sexual accessories can really spice up your bedroom and set the scene. You could even go as far as to install a sex-swing or a pole, which can still be enjoyed long after the staycation is over.
On the other hand, you could keep it more subtle by renovating your drawers with a few new smart, customizable vibrators for him or her. And if you'd like a little help getting started with your new toys, our website offers various guides and examples that will welcome you into a whole new world of pleasure.
Lube is most definitely a must, too. No matter how wet you get, water-based lubricants are a safe and highly effective way to ensure a smooth glide inside every time. You wouldn't want to find yourself without lube if you were on vacation, and the same certainly applies to your staycation, too.
Live Out Your Fantasies
Just because you're home doesn't mean you can't fantasize about being elsewhere. Indulging in roleplay is playful, creative, and kinky! With a little imagination, your bedroom can become a private island, a jet plane, or an office in a skyrise.
With the help of a few props and dressing the part, you can bring your fantasy into reality. If there's a partner embarking on this exciting "trip" with you, your staycation is the perfect time to try out a few new things in the bedroom – just be sure to go over the details with them first. After all, there's no reason to be shy. Trying out some new pet names is also very exciting and a big mood booster.
Map Out Your Staycation Itinerary
Although there's fun in spontaneity, having a plan will help you stay motivated to maintain the staycation mindset. Your itinerary can be packed with passion from morning 'till night, or it can focus on what'll occur after sundown.
The scope of your itinerary can go beyond the bedroom, too. You could plan to treat yourself to a gourmet meal, prepared from the comfort of your own kitchen (or cheat by ordering take-out). A little fun in the tub with a bath bomb, some candles, and some rose petals is another lavish way to spoil yourself at home.
Break Free of Your Daily Routine
Your paperwork can wait. Don't reply to your emails or spend your day glued to your phone – that's not how you would spend your vacation, so it's not how you should spend your staycation, either. Do as little housework as possible and set yourself free from your daily routine.
To keep yourself away from your inbox, you'll need to keep your hands busy and your mind occupied. Plan to do some activities you don't necessarily have time for during your typical week. Go on an evening stroll and enjoy the sunset! Spend hours just enjoying the breeze from your porch or deck, stargaze and try your hand at naming a few constellations (or make some up for fun).
Regardless of how you plan on incorporating some extracurricular activities, keep it light, keep it simple, and keep it loose.
Don't Forget the Massage Oil
Massages aren't exclusive to long hours spent in some far away spa. You can set the mood by buttering yourself or your partner up in a massage oil that'll leave your skin unbelievably soft and irresistibly smooth.
Treating Yourself to a Solo Massage
While you may not be able to reach the knots in your back, you can give your arms and legs the loving they truly deserve. Start from the tips of your fingers and gently start working the oil through the palm of your hand all the way up to your shoulders and neck. Knead the oil in with the fingers and thumb of your other hand in a circular motion.
Next, take your time and work the massage oil up your legs with both of your hands, paying particular attention to your thighs. You're more than worthy of some self-loving, so allow yourself to enjoy every moment of your "me-time."
Treating Your Partner to a Massage
Nothing says "I love you" like a massage before diving into foreplay. Start at the nape of your partner's neck, then transition into massaging the shoulders and back. Whisper into their ear every once in a while and be sure to ask if the pressure is okay or if there are any particular areas they'd like you to spend more time massaging.
Grazing their skin with kisses and nibbles along the way is both endearing and erotic. If things really start heating up during the massage, it may even be appropriate to start pressing your hips into them slowly and rhythmically. You can even intertwine your foreplay into the massage for a seamless transition into the highlight of your staycation: making love.
Make Each Moment Count
Sex and masturbation are not races, so don't bolt for the finish line. Enjoy every moment with yourself or with your significant other and don't be afraid to try something new, too. This is your opportunity to really learn to love the skin you're in, so familiarize yourself with your G-spot or hone in on perfecting your stroke. Likewise, you should take your staycation as a chance to explore your partner's body in a way that you may never have before.
Watching porn is a big way to enhance your session and it can provide some unanticipated inspiration, as well. Reading guides or using playing cards are fun and educational ways to enhance your sex life, too.
Why Wait All Day?
You've completely cleared your schedule for your staycation, so why wait all day for the festivities begin? Having an afternoon session is a rare treat, and morning sex is an intimate treasure, too. If no one else is home, then there's nothing holding you back from a little mid-day loving.
No Room Should Be Off Limits – Especially on a Staycation For Two
Light candles and leave a trail of rose petals that lead to the bedroom. Make out in the kitchen while you're making dinner, or get started in the living room before transitioning into the bedroom. Having sex in the shower is highly-coveted, too. In fact, every shower on a staycation should involve your partner. You could even have sex in the dining room or in your home office – just because!
In any case, no room should be off-limits, especially if you're on a staycation for two. But if you would prefer to spend the entire day in bed, there's nothing wrong with that, either.
Splurge a Little
With all the money you're saving by staying home, you are more than entitled to spend some extra money on a fancy bottle of wine, champagne, or even some jewelry. You can never go wrong with some new lingerie or vibrators, either.
In the long run, a little bit of splurging can go a long way in making your staycation all the more memorable. Your gift to yourself or your partner will make the occasion special and leave you with something tangible to remember it by.
A staycation is a luxury, so long as you put in the effort to really make your home feel like the ultimate getaway. This is your chance to experiment with fantasies, take a break from your daily routine, engage in pleasure, and splurge – all without having to travel halfway across the country or to the opposite side of the globe.
Whether you embark on your staycation alone or invite a partner to tag along, there's so much you can do to create a relaxing and intimate space, from candles and rose petals to lingerie, vibrators, and sex swings.
And your staycation doesn't necessarily have to revolve around having sex, not that there's anything wrong with that. ;) However, you can also take this as a chance to enjoy the luxury of being comfortable in your own space without being bogged down with your usual obligations. This is also a great time to build intimacy and learn more about your partner. Be silly, have fun, and enjoy yourself!
