It's Getting Hot In Here! How Summer Impacts Your Sex Drive

With how hot it can get during the summer (especially in Australia), sex would surely be the last thing on people’s minds, right?

Well, perhaps not. If you’re feeling hot under the collar in more ways than one lately, it might be the scorching Australian summer increasing your sex drive, and it’s not hard to see the most obvious reasons why. Everyone is wearing more revealing clothing, slurping on ice creams, slathering themselves with sunscreen…we’re working up a sweat just thinking about having all that eye candy around! But did you know the weather can actually have a more profound effect on your libido, and even your attitude towards getting intimate? Here are all the ways in which summer affects your sex drive, plus a few of Sexyland’s top adult toys to buy this summer!

Hormonal reasons behind wanting more sex in summer

If you’ve noticed that the temperature isn’t the only thing that’s rising now that we’re in the warmer months, it could be down to your hormones. The extended hours of sunshine can promote increases in serotonin and dopamine levels, and both of these feel-good chemicals can have a hand in you feeling happier and hornier in the heat.

More exposure to the sun can also decrease the amount of melatonin your body produces (the hormone responsible for regulating your sleep cycle), and melatonin has been linked to lower sex drive, so thank the summer for your wandering mind!

Last but not least, the sun is a direct source of vitamin D, which is great for boosting men’s testosterone and women’s oestrogen levels, both of which are linked to an active libido.

The psychology of being more interested in sex during summer

Even as kids, plenty of us associate the warmer months with fun, excitement, and relaxing during our time off from school or work. This lower-stress environment promotes interest in play and passion, making it easier to enter a state of relaxed arousal and daydream about more frisky things…

We’re also generally more sociable when the weather’s nicer, and with longer days and warmer nights, it’s normal for us to want to go out more, meet new people, and have new experiences, including sexual ones!

Summer (in addition to the new year) also often prompts us wanting to exercise and eat healthier, which naturally boosts our libido. Getting in shape is also a fantastic way to build confidence, which can lead to more willingness to engage in sexual activities with a summer fling. In fact, according to a survey performed by the dating site OkCupid, the willingness to engage in casual romantic encounters increases by 17% at the first sign of warm weather. It peaks at the height of summer, with casual sex being sought out by 33% more users than in any other month in the year!
