No- BS responses to questions you can only ask Cosmo
Do nipples fluctuate in size based on temp? I swear my areolae get bigger when it’s hot out.
We all know what happens the moment you walk into the frozenfood aisle of the grocery store: Bing, bing! Headlights on. So yes, nipples can grow and shrink in size based on temperature – and heat usually returns them to normal. Nips can also change in size and appearance due to hormones and different life stages, says obgyn Dr Sherry Ross, author of Sheology: The Definitive Guide to Women’s Intimate Health. Period. As for your areolae – the darkened circle that surrounds your nipples – those can expand when there is added blood f low to the area (like during sex), which increases their sensitivity, too. Most changes are f ine, says Dr Ross, but tell your doctor if you experience any unusual sensations.
I’m travelling a lot lately. How can my boo and I keep things hot?
Spark mutual masturbation seshes on FaceTime or Skype, suggests sexologist Emily Morse, host of the Sex With
Emily podcast. ‘ It will turn you both on, and – bonus – you’ll learn exactly what works for your partner.’ Or try a toy like the WeVibe Sync ($ 295, wevibe. com/ app), a Ushaped buzzer that you wear while he controls its pulses from anywhere via an app on his smartphone. And don’t forget the throwback methods of seduction. ‘A sexy note or risqué photo can be erotic,’ adds Morse. Leave a couple hidden at his place for him to f ind before you jetset.
Why does swimming in the pool or ocean with my partner always turn me on?!
Think about it: You and your partner are both half naked, wet and in a setting that resembles an episode of The
Bachelor. What isn’t arousing about that scene? ‘For a lot of people, the ocean is visually appealing and is associated with relaxation,’ says sex therapist Megan Fleming. ‘ Plus, some f ind having sex in an unconventional place a turnon.’ The adrenaline rush of getting away with a splashy hookup can be a seriously sultry one. Not to mention, feeling weightless in the water makes you want to do sex acrobatics! Just watch for stray swimmers…
Any good tips for going down on my guy with ice- cubes? I’ve been wanting to try it.
The trick to giving him a chilly willy (without freezing his D off ) is alternating between warm and cold, and making sure that the ice doesn’t come in direct contact with his penis. ‘ That could cause him to lose his erection,’ explains sex expert Tracey Cox, author of Hot
Sex: How to Do It. To avoid such a dicksicle, start out by running an icecube over his nipples before popping it in your mouth, suggests Cox. Store it in your cheek as you take him between your lips to give his manhood a brief, cool rush, then take the ice out and swirl your tongue along the head of his member – one of his most sensitive areas. He’ll be ready to blow.
