How To Have The Best Sex Dreams

May 06, 2015 3 min read

Sex dreams, probably one of the greatest, most glorious surprises you can have in the night time. They often run the gamut from sexy, to funny, to bizarre, and, as the Kinsey Institute reports, they can end in orgasm (37 percent of women over 45 have reported reaching orgasm through a sex dream).

Want your share of sexy dreams? The good news is that you can increase your odds of having a sex dream by sleeping in a certain position. The study, which was published in September in the journal Dreaming, found that people who sleep on their stomachs with their arms above their heads are more likely to have sex dreams than people who do not. They are also more likely to have erotic sex dreams that include activities like bondage or hooking up with a sexy celebrity.

Researchers theorize that sleeping prone might allow for more genital stimulation and that sleeping with your arms above your head mimic the feelings of bondage or intense sex. There are a few other things you can do to try to increase your likelihood of getting it on in dream world. Here are some waking acts that might help your sleeping self:

  • Sleep in something sexy. Baggy sweats or flannels might be great for lounging around the house but they certainly don't inspire sexy thoughts or deeds. Try wearing a sexy, lightweight nightie, or going naked. If you have a partner, sleeping with nothing between you but the sheets can inspire a sense of freedom and sensuality.
  • Have a seductive nighttime routine. Instead of thinking about what you need to do the next day or talking to your partner about errands or the kids' schedule, have time where you can connect via flirting or kissing, cuddling (if you're single, think about those, connect to your own sexuality). Being present and connected to your partner will not only improve your relationship, it will also inspire deeper sleep and maybe even erotic dreams. And of course, again, if you're single, connecting to your own deep thoughts and desires can only help you feel sexy as you nod off.
  • Keep the kids out of the bedroom. It is hard to have sexy dreams if you and your partner are crowded out of the bed by your children. Cuddling with your kids is important, but it’s also important for them to develop healthy sleep habits and for you and your partner to have “adult” time and space where you can connect as lovers and not just parents. You'll get more rest and you and your partner can really redevelop your intimacy.
  • Switch off the television and the laptop. Do this at least one hour before bed. Recent research from the National Sleep Foundation's annual Sleep in America poll shows that two-thirds of people aged 30 to 64 watch television right before bed, while younger people were more likely to spend time on their smartphones or laptops. It should come as no surprise that the survey found that 63 percent of Americans are not getting enough sleep. Researchers believe that this is due to the light emitted from these devices messing with our sleep cycles. Shut down your electrics and engage in some extra cuddle time with your partner or spend some sexy time alone.
Listen to music, have a bath. Read erotic fiction. Whatever it is that gets your blood pumping. Then drift to sleep and see what comes to you. Who is game for starting these habits tonight? I know I am.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.
