thanksgiving dinner

Thanksgiving is certainly one our favorite holidays, but it can also be the most stressful. From hours of travel to see family, opposing political opinions at the table and debates over the best stuffing recipe it might make you want to stay on your couch with a pumpkin pie next year.

But then, there’s all the reasons we love Thanksgiving. Delicious food, reminiscing of the good ol’ days with your family and friends, and the nostalgia of visiting your home town. Instead of skipping Thanksgiving all together, you just need a few ways to decompress after the drama and relieve some of that stress. What better way to do that than with an orgasm, or two.

I know what you’re thinking… Turkey makes you sleepy and feeling full doesn’t lend itself to romps in the sack. Fear not, my friend. You can still make your way to relaxation and orgasm bliss without too much physical effort.  

Start With a Massage

With or without a partner, massage is a great way to loosen up your muscles and release all that tension. Plus, the intimacy of a massage is some of the best foreplay and will help get you in the mood and lead to better orgasms. Don’t forget the massage oils and candles. Not only will they make it less work for the giver by providing a slick surface, it will add sensation for the receiver. Warming up the oil in your hands will aid in the muscle relaxation.

Use a Position Aid

So, you're feeling full and the last thing you want to do is have to use your ab muscles during sex; we get it! Grab a Liberator Wedge or the Jaz Motion and give your butt a boost. The angle will allow for deeper penetration and G-Spot access without you having to tire out your abs. You can also try a position master that will do the work to hold your legs up in missionary. Because there's nothing wrong with getting a little help from your friends. 

Add a Vibrator to the Mix

When you’re feeling lazy, sex in the spoon position provides lots of physical contact and it doesn't take much work. There won’t be any clitoral stimulation in this position without some extra hands; but a simple clit vibe will make it that much easier, and help you reach the finish line in time with your partner. Some of our favorite clit vibes to use in the spooning sex position are the Lelo Sona, and Rocks Off Mini Vibe.

Get Kinky

For many, BDSM play is a release for stress and tension. If you’re new to the scene start off small with a little spanking and some simple restraints. Opt for a crop instead of a flogger, like the riding crop from Sex & Mischief. Crops are easier to control when you're starting out and this one is compact and travels easily. For restraints, furry handcuffs are a great to avoid any marks on your wrists. No need to raise eyebrows during dessert!  Have your lover spank your bottom, or lightly tap your nipples and clit while you're handcuffed to the bed. The anticipation of the next touch is bound to drive you wild. Just be sure to discuss your limits ahead of time and have a safeword. 

Try a Swing

If you love sex standing up, but can’t fathom pulling that off after Thanksgiving dinner, we’ve got you covered. The Hustler Door Jam Swing does all the heavy lifting so you can just enjoy the pleasure. If you don’t have a door handy, try the Whipsmart Body Swing. The idea is the same, you just wrap the swing around your partner and lift yourself up and on them. The swing holds your weight, while the padded straps keep you both comfortable.

Play at the Table

Disclaimer, this one is not for the faint of heart. With the array of remote controlled and Bluetooth capable sex toys, there's no reason why you have to wait until after dinner to start the foreplay. Think about it; how much more tolerable would your Uncle's ridiculous political rant be if you were feeling the vibe in your panties? For the most discreet experience try a remote vibrating panty. You can also try a wearable vibe like the Jive by We-Vibe. Get simultaneous G-Spot and clitoral stimulation, and you don't even need a remote. You can control the Jive with the We-Connect app right from your smart phone. Are you playing candy crush or buzzing your way to ecstasy? We’ll never tell.
