40 things to do while naked (we're not talking bubble baths)
drop your panties + let's get this naked party started
We love an excuse to be naked, especially when studies show it can boost our self-esteem, improve our bedroom skills and up intimacy with our partners and ourselves. We've got 40 things you can do naked that don't involve sex, but obviously there are a fuck-ton more (we didn't even dive into the kinky or sex-specific ones so stay tuned...). Feel free to share your faves in the comments section ;) In the meantime, use these suggestions to build body confidence, add more play, up your mojo, get more acquainted with your body and feel that fuck-it-all freedom that comes when you're living life in the nude.
decorate your body in jewelry.
netflix and... naked.
Even if a movie isn't the goal, snuggling up with a flick (with or without the fuck) is a whole lot more intimate sans clothes.
fight with your partner.
Experts say that arguing when you're naked adds vulnerability so you see the person and topic in a different, more compassionate and authentic light, while helping diffuse the anger. Plus you're a step ahead when it comes time for makeup sex.
This one is probably best reserved for at-home negotiation with a partner but it's a good way to shift the balance the power. ;)
If you haven't tried yoga sans clothes, are you even living? Good news, today's a new day to hit that mat in just your skin. Think vulnerability, think authenticity, think freedom.
play scrabble and invent a new genre.
Think, every word has to be related to the body/sexuality and even what's on your bucket list with your lover tonight. Technically, you can probably turn most board games naughty with a little imagination.
get in the kitchen + get your hands dirty.
Let's test this theory: what sounds better to you... A) creating a charcuterie board or B) creating a charcuterie board naked? See?
Step 1) Burn the French maid’s outfit. Step 2) Get those rubber gloves and some heels and get to work. Pro Tip: Practice your Dom skills and make your (consenting) partner do the cleaning while you watch (naked of course).
do your lingerie shopping.
Imagine how you want to dress yourself up and down.
worship some cock and pussy.
This is all about the consensual celebration, adoration and savoring of the cock or pussy you're with, including gazing at, complimenting, touching and more with no pressure to do or be anything, anyone or anywhere else. Yeah, we said this list wasn't sexual, so don't make it. Just worship. Or make it sexual and forget we said anything.
stroke every inch of your skin.
Explore your body with a fan, preferably made of feathers. If feathers aren't your texture of choice, find the one that is.
hunt down a new orgasm….
listen with your body.
Finding new music is a great way to explore what moves you in new ways. Explore a variety of playlists to see how different genres, lyrics, voices feel in different areas of your body and how they inspire your movement — or don't. You'll gain more intimacy and connection to your emotions and heightened body awareness.
discover different erogenous zones....
Using different tools: a paintbrush, a chilled spoon, jewelry, leather, rope.
boost that immunity.
You can simulate a cold plunge in your tub or if it's winter and you've got an arctic breeze coming, streaking in your backyard just might be invigorating.
Wear something you can easily shrug off your shoulders when you get deep in the forest. Note: we mean an actual forest, not Central Park or your community garden.
trade pedis with your partner.
You get to recline seductively in the buff while getting your feet massaged and toes painted. then you have to lie fairly still while they dry... of course, you have be willing to do the same. (P.S. if you read "trade pedis with your partner" as "trade penis with your partner", yes, trading strap-ons, dildos and vibrators is also a fun naked activity with your lover.)
They're naked. They know you are. And they're blindfolded. Now the fun begins. Tell them what you're doing to yourself and let them visualize. Maybe they get to command you what to do. Maybe you get to guide their hands where to touch their body. Maybe you get to decorate their body. Maybe you even get to make it all up as you fucking go.
get high and...
Visualize your future, meditate, create a vision board, use your imagination to go as far and deep as you can go with your future, your fantasies, your bucket lists. (Weed is obviously optional... and super lubricating for dreaming)
call someone on the phone.
Yeah, actually pick up the phone. And yes, keep the video off. This is a secret between you and you. Especially effective when you need a burst of mojo. Who knows, it might give you that extra dose of mojo when you're negotiating your cable bill.
hang between the sheets.
Stretch your body, nap, eat breakfast, read... immerse your body in your senses (feel of the sheets, scent of a candle, music) and stay off social media.
tie someone up.
Handcuff, tie up or otherwise restrain your partner, leave them there to think about what you’ll do next.
host a sushi party…
their body or yours is the plate (or the menu).
discover a new masturbation position.
test-drive your toys.
If you have trouble giving yourself time for self-pleasure, consider this a very productive battery-checking session.
but make it erotica. Write down your passions, turn ons, bucket list items. Visualize (and fantasize) about your likes, curiosities, down-to-tries and explore how you feel about them. You're not writing for publication so take off the pressure and free flow that creative fire.
host a naked brunch.
For advanced practitioners of nakedness, how about bring your crew along. (Pro tip: make sure the invite says “clothing optional” and it's a consenting guest list.)
explore new scents.
Dab you and your partner with different scents — woody, florals, spicy, on different areas of the body (wrists, neck, back of the knees, lower back, behind the shoulder…) and discover how different body parts respond to different scents, and how they all mix together to reflect the complex aroma of your whole self. See which blends have an aphrodisiac effect on your mind and body.
If you work remotely, see how it feels to be the boss, in your own skin. And don't forget to mark February 3 as National Work Naked Day, so now it's official.
Get creative with lighting, mirrors, fabrics, toys...
make your own porn.
And if you're not down to star, being a voyeur is just as fun. We love how MakeLoveNotPorn turned the social sex you're already having into the hottest, sexiest, messiest, realest way to tune in and get turned on.
Try some portrait play in the nude... paint what you see/love in your partner and they do the same. Or say, fvck the canvas and paint each other's bodies with your most delectable, lick-off-able syrups.
create a gratitude body map.
Place words that symbolize what you appreciate in each other on all their special places (either sticky notes or write them with lipstick or chocolate sauce), and then read aloud what poetry your gratitude creates all over their body. (PS Studies show that saying aloud what you're grateful about in your partner increases intimacy.)
Studies show getting zzz's sans your jammies leads to better quality sleep because you're less likely to get overheated. Scientists didn't test whether clean, fresh, yummy sheets also helped but we think that's a no brainer.
download an online sex class.
Let your curiosities guide... erotic massage? Impact play? Oral skills? Facesitting? Or, keep it non-sexual and download something else you want to learn. Lounge and learn without a care or ounce of clothing in the world.
dance your sweet ass off.
Twerk. Move sensually. Rock your hips. It's one of the fastest ways to elevate a mood, zap stress and free yourself of whatever might have you stuck in a moment. The naked part is just hot.
Salt caves, clay caves, jacuzzis.
bonus naked activity:
Get your sweet (naked) ass to a masturbation circle. They're designed to amplify, harness and channel your sexual energy. If a circle is too daunting, just do it with a lover or yourself (in a mirror).
