Sizzling Sexy Summer Sparks (Frugal Fun Tip, July, 2002)

Shel Horowitz's Monthly Frugal Fun Tip for July, 2002
Vol. 6, No. 3: Sizzling Sexy Summer Sparks

Been a while since we've had a romance column! A whole year and a half, in fact. Too long!

This is the time of year when my Northern Hemisphere readers get hot and lethargic. It's hard to think romantic when the temperature outside is higher than normal body temperature. The other day, our local bank thermometer said 100 degrees Fahrenheit!

But summer is a great time to be sexy together! In fact, you don't have to worry about keeping warm, so lots of things that wouldn't be possible in the winter become possible now. Here are a few ideas.

* Swim together and take turns throwing each other in the water, giving each other piggy-back rides, or just hugging tightly while you stand in cool water up to your chin.

* Get an ice cream sundae with chocolate sauce (or something else); feed each other tender morsels

* Sit in an air conditioned cafe, reading love stories to each other over iced cappuccino

* Throw on some rock and roll, pull the shades, and dance together (clothing optional).

* Dim the lights and do a sexy striptease for your partner

* A deep, relaxing, lengthy massage

* Find an old-fashioned soda fountain counter and share a large root beer float (yes, two straws!)

* Work up a really good sweat together with your favorite outdoor activity--and then cool off in the bathtub.

* Write a poem or song together, and perform it for each other

* Go out for an early morning hike, before it gets too hot

* Make a gourmet fruit soup in the blender, and serve it with a mint leaf and perhaps a scoop of ice cream

* Set up a double-bed hammock in a shady spot on your porch or in your yard

I've also reviewed books that I bought, because they were worthy of your time. And I've also received dozens of review copies at no charge that do not get reviewed, either because they are not worthy or because they don't meet the subject criteria for this column, or simply because I haven't gotten around to them yet, since I only review one book per month. I have far more books in my office than I will ever read, and the receipt of a free book does not affect my review.
