Yes, it is hot and sticky outside, but that should not stop adults from having healthy passionate sex. Nurse Practitioner Barb Dehn R.N., M.S., N.P., also known as television personality and award-winning author Nurse Barb, offers some spicy and healthy tips for summer love-making.

Summer Sex: It’s all about having fun and staying healthy.

1. Take a tropical vacation in the bedroom - If you are unable to travel to an exotic location this summer, no worries, you can still create your own tropical experience with effective lubricant that will add new flavors to your sex life. Coconut Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are perfect natural slippery lubricants that are sensual, tasty and keep your skin healthy.

2. Sex at the Beach - When having sex at the beach, apply baby powder on your partner's skin. It is a sensual, gentle and a smoothing way to remove unwanted sand without your partner feeling that the top layer of their skin is being taken off with a belt-sander.

3. Take a shower with your partner - Don’t forget, we are in a drought. Try to make showering provocative, and you can do your part to conserve water. Showering with your partner is good for your sex life, the environment and your water bill. You can save gallons of water by turning off the shower after the initial rinse. You can then lather each other with soap and turn the shower back on to rinse off! Everyone is happy and clean. If you even want to save more water, enjoy a passionate sponge bath together!

4. Bring a bucket of ice to your bedroom - When your partner’s skin is sizzling, run a single ice cube along their arms, legs and some more sensitive places on their body. As things get hot and steamy, using a little ice will cool down the flames and keep everyone comfortable.

5. Avoid sex in a pool, lake or ocean - It may sound romantic, but it isn't healthy to have sex in a swimming pool, lake or ocean. Instead grab a blanket and find some privacy near the water's edge. Sex in the water can cause numerous bacterial infections.
