While the holidays might bring you comfort and joy, they may also bring you stress and indigestion and more stress. The holiday season can definitely be a trying time — whether it's a difficult family, running around traveling, or just facing the shopping crowds. But in the midst of all of the to-ing and fro-ing, it's also important to make sure you're making time for some fun and, hopefully, some sex.
"Sex during the holidays is a perfect reason to emphasize the cuddly coziness that can be achieved with you and your partner," Dr. Megan Stubbs, sexologist and relationship expert, tells Bustle. Plus, you can use the holiday stress to increase your sexual pleasure. "Find innocuous happenings during your holiday events to create a fun game with your partner. Count how many times someone makes a passive, or just plain aggressive comment about politics and make that number the time you try to make your partner come." You may be able to take all of that family angst and turn it into something useful — and maybe those orgasms can help the family tension just wash right over you.
