You’ve just had a marvelous wedding with the partner man of your dreams. Next on the agenda is a honeymoon. Of course, romantic candles and erotic massages are sexy, but why don’t you try one of these more creative and unexpected honeymoon ideas to make your honeymoon sizzle.
1. Plan an Adventurous Activity
While you might have decided to sleep on the beach all week and gaze at the stars, consider scheduling at least one excursion that makes your heart beat crazily. Need ideas? Go for a long bicycle ride, take a scuba diving trip, climb bridges or attend/participate in an exotic car driving and racing show.
Whatever crazy activity you decide to do, these activities allow your brain to release endorphins that can elevate your mood and senses. You get where we’re going with this, right? *wink*.
2. Wear a New Piece of Lingerie Every Day
Ooh! There’s nothing as sexy as modeling on your runway (bedroom) when you’re with your spouse. Bring out new pieces for each night of the honeymoon. Think of themes or even just different colours to help you plan it out. And don’t leave your man out of the fun either. Get him, or ask him to get himself, a few new pairs of boxers or boxer briefs.
3. Go Dancing
Find a local spot near the hotel/resort with dancing and hit the dance floor together. Dancing is sensual and a great precursor to other (coughs) night-time activities. Just make sure to do a little research before you go.
Find a spot that’ll be relatively crowded so there’s no need to feel self-conscious about any subpar/crazy dancing skills. And stay safe too: If the crowd makes you feel uncomfortable at any time, take that dance party back to your hotel room.
4. Make a Playlist
Get sexy with your music. Put together a mix of music to fit the locale; maybe it’s a selection of reggae, hip-hop or Latin music or even sultry French songs to play in the room and create a little soundtrack of your own. Just make it sexy!
5. Read (Or Listen To) a Steamy Book
Find some adult-only reading that will most likely keep you up and leave you desiring each other sooo baaaad. Pack along a pillow book or two. While Kama Sutra is a classic, there are plenty of other options to choose from, like Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, or Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence. You can also consider adult honeymoon movies.
6. Watch a Sunrise
While sunsets can be charming, watching a sunrise together can be far more exciting and interesting than you’d imagine. At that hour, chances are you’ll have the whole sun to yourself, and the beach, pool or any other gazing point will be virtually deserted. Afterward, make a beeline for your room and order breakfast in bed and see where that leads.
7. Take Boudoir Photos
Create a little photo session of your own and snap a few of each other in the privacy of your room. After the trip, make a mini photo album exclusively of your risqué photos. Keep it in a safe place (where kids, family members or prying friends won’t see it) and sneak a peek every once and a while to remember your trip.
8. Book a Couples’ Massage
Reserve a private room at the spa, a spot right on the beach or book an in-room service if you’ve got the money for it. A massage is a great way to relieve stress and tension from the wedding day.
If having a stranger giving you massages isn’t quite alright with you; then, take turns giving each other massages in the comfort of your hotel room or villa. Buy or bring along your own massage oil and plan to make use of it long after the honeymoon!
9. Order In
One of the best things about being on “honey-cation” is enjoying the amazing local cuisines. And while your honeymoon might be at an awesome destination, it also gives you a great opportunity to order in from your bedroom. Try a meal that includes at least one classic aphrodisiac like oysters, avocados or asparagus — and oh! Don’t forget the wine!
