How to Plan a Hot Date in a Hot Tub at Home

Hot tubs have always been associated with relaxation, but also with romance. Whether you are looking to impress your new partner or looking to spice things up in your long-standing relationship, hot tub romantic date nights are always a one-of-a-kind experience. It is the perfect way to unwind while being able to cuddle and do all the hot tub do’s and don’ts (chuckles). The warm water and lack of clothes will surely help you to get in the mood for romance in your 2 person spa, but there are also some other things that could help you turn your date night from warm to hot.

Hot Tub Beautification Process

Although hot tubs are beautiful on their own, adding a little bit of ‘magic’ will surely make it look more appealing. Rose petals, for instance, are the ideal way to give your 2 person spa a more romantic look. This type of date night simply wouldn’t be the same without cupid’s favourite flower, so I suggest you stop by the closest flower market and get some roses. You can place several flowers in a vase next to your hot tub and place the rest in the water or in a bowl by the spa.

Chocolate, Champagne and Passion

No romantic date is complete without champagne, but you can make your hot tub experience even more amorous with some sweet treats and chocolate. Milk chocolate with hazelnuts, caramel or oreo – you can’t go wrong with any of these, but if you really want to impress your other half, melt some milk chocolate in a bowl and prepare some sweet and ripe strawberries to dip in it.

Set the Mood with Lighting & Music

Lighting is also an important part of making the best of any romantic date. Except for hanging some lights, you can also place some candles and dimly lit lanterns to decorate the area around the tub and make it more pleasant. Once done, create a romantic playlist based on the mood you want to set (more dynamic or softer) and you are all done. Here’s a suggestion of a playlist that can instantly put you in the mood.

Seducing Scents

The power of essential oils is known since ancient times. In fact, it is considered that the sense of smell is closely linked to experiencing sexual arousal. You can add several drops of some essential oil directly into your hot tub or use an aromatherapy diffuser. Ylang-ylang is considered a natural aphrodisiac, so I’d suggest you go for that one.

These are just some of the many things you can do to light the spark and keep the fire burning. Enjoy!

A Word, or Two on the History of Street Wear

A Word, or Two on the History of Street Wear

We all want comfort in our lives, nowadays more so than before because of the busy lifestyles we lead. A huge part of comfort has to do with clothing, so it’s no surprise street wear has made it into such a trend over the years, about 40 to be exact.

Though primarily known as the clothing of people into the surf and skateboarding cultures, as it was them who wore such clothing pieces, and some of them who started creating the clothing altogether, like Shawn Stussy, it didn’t take long for it to grow into a style, the one that spoke to people of hip-hop, punk, rave, and youth in general.

Of course, this proved to be quite a profitable business, as it opened a niche many were interested in, so many brands emerged that have turned into classics by now. High quality street wear is composed of brands that aren’t afraid to push the boundary of style, surpassing the lifespan of a trend, and turn into a culture (yes, a culture, and not mere clothing!) of timelessness.

Even if you don’t think you fit in with that culture, you’d still find a piece that speaks to you greatly, because wearing street wear isn’t just about style, it’s about lifestyle too: a lifestyle of comfort.

Nowadays, when the boundaries of formal and casual clothing have become blurred (so longer strict dress codes), it’s possible to wear streetwear in any setting you set your mind to, because the pieces can be used in a number of combinations.

It’s nothing unusual to see sneakers paired with more formal trousers, or even skirts; moreover it was thanks to streetwear that there came to be a blur between the classes too, since clothing used to be a way of expressing one’s belonging to a specific class, and it was streetwear that became the desired clothing of the poor, as much as of those of the working-class, middle class, even high class.

Not surprisingly, we can now see the merging of luxury clothing with streetwear, as in the example of the merging of brands like Louis Vuitton and Supreme; the perfect example of how influential this culture has come to be. It’s impossible to stay immune to streetwear, staying immune to it is like staying immune to comfort.

While we see trends coming and going, we can be certain streetwear isn’t going anywhere, it’s here to stay for good – we can only wait to see what more there’s in store when it comes to surprises for all of the streetwear fans.

My Past-Time Stories of Sex, Poppers & Zero Worries

I miss my college days. Back when you didn’t need to have an excuse to go out and get drunk, when girls said they’d do whatever you liked them to do. The time when getting high off on party and sex drugs was just part of an everyday repertoire. This story includes it all, the night that makes me reminisce about the college days more than any other. (more…)
