We are blessed to live in a country with good weather with temperatures that dangerously uncomfortable.
But did you know that when it comes to your sexual drive, weather and body temperature play a very important role?
Studies have shown that weather has an obvious influence on our sex drive.
In Uganda, our two conditions are cold or hot.
There are days when it gets so hot that the last thing on your mind is sex. If it is hot and humid, you will naturally not feel an urge to get intimate with your partner or anyone for that matter.
You get sweaty and the feel of your skin against another skin is even mentally irritating. The thought of a sweaty partner, the vigour of sex, the energy needed seems like too much work during hot seasons. It is for this reason that many are too lazy to have sex when it’s hot. So no, it’s your partner, it’s the weather.
However, when it comes to cooler weather, the body temperature rises! On a cold day, all you want is to cuddle and warm up with your partner.
Women in particular are more horny when it’s cold. The need to warm their bodies creates a craving for a man. Even if she didn’t particularly like the man previously, the weather will get her there a lot faster.
The degrees however have to be considered. Let’s keep it practical to create a clear understanding.
It has been observed that if the temperature is above 27 degrees celsius, it can cause sweat and dampen your sexual drive. Imagine a couple in karamoja for example.
On the other hand, temperature as cold as 5 degrees celsius can make your body too cold to get intimate. Picture a couple in Kabale for instance.
It is important to find out what kind of weather triggers your sex drive and can promise you a great sexual performance.
Ironically, hot weather encourages a higher sex drive than cold weather.
This might sound little weird but it has been scientifically proven that your sex drive stimulates in summer, all thanks to your hormones. Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone (MSH), the one that is responsible for triggering sex drive in women is secreted more in bright sunlight and heat. Also, the feel-good neurotransmitter called serotonin in both men and women is produced more during warm weather thereby enhancing your sex drive.
The sex drive drops when its cold. Due to less intensity of sunlight and reduced production of serotonin, the hormone promoting sex drive, you may experience a drop in your sexual urge during very cold weather. Serotonin gets replaced by melatonin that impedes your sex drive.
Unsurprisingly the rainy season for planting is the best time to have sex. It is a wet season accompanied by the thrills of thunder and lightning, the perfect mood to turn on your sexual desire. With the soft breeze around and cooling droplets of rain, your body gets the need for intimacy and that’s where lights the spark.
The combination of fire and water has always created magic and no wonder, rains outside and passion within your bodies generate that magical heat that can drown you in the long-lasting pleasure of a great sexual performance.
