What­ever your fancy, Toronto has a wide range of op­tions on of­fer for sin­gles and cou­ples look­ing to reignite the spark this sea­son.

Shak­ing up your rou­tine is also im­por­tant to stave off bore­dom which un­der­mines close­ness in re­la­tion­ships. Try­ing some­thing new is not just about ig­nit­ing pas­sion, but also cul­ti­vat­ing in­ti­macy.

For the crafty folk look­ing for a sexy hands-on work­shop, look no fur­ther than Luna Matatas’ body paint­ing work­shop with Virgo Vis­ual Artistry to ex­plore your cre­ative out­let while em­brac­ing the beauty of the hu­man form.

Whether you opt to be painted or the painter, con­sen­sual ex­po­sure to nu­dity is pos­i­tively as­so­ci­ated with body con­fi­dence which trans­lates to low­ered in­hi­bi­tions and hot­ter sex behind closed doors.

If you’re the fit and flex­i­ble type, check out an acro yoga class. It com­bines the health ben­e­fits of yoga with the intimate con­nec­tion boost of phys­i­cal touch, trust cul­ti­va­tion and team­work. A rich body of ev­i­dence re­veals that touch is not only good for your health, but also ce­ments the bond be­tween lovers.

You have sev­eral op­tions in the GTA in­clud­ing the Flying Yogi in Les­lieville, Acroyoga 360 in Vaughan, the Oc­to­pus Gar­den on Col­lege Street and Acro Bud­dhas’ var­i­ous locations.

Those seek­ing a new ad­ven­ture will find just what they’re look­ing for at Pad­dle­board Ad­dict in the Scar­bor­ough Bluffs. Learn to standup pad­dle board as you ex­plore the water ways around Toronto’s unique float­ing home com­mu­nity. Ex­plor­ing new ter­ri­tory is one of the sim­plest ways to boost pas­sion chem­i­cals.

If you’ re look­ing for an adren­a­line rush, you can also take flight with in­door or out­door sky­div­ing, hot-air bal­loon­ing with Sky works Bal­loon Com­pany, or hy­dro-flying with Fly-Board Ni­a­gara.

Ex­po­sure to scary sit­u­a­tions can in­crease at­trac­tion, in part due to “mis at­tri­bu­tion of arousal” meaning your body in­ter­prets fear as arousal.

Adren­a­line-pump­ing ac­tiv­i­ties aren’t the only way to reignite pas­sion—self-de­vel­op­ment also lays the ground work for happy, ex­cit­ing re­la­tion­ships. U of T’s Hart House of­fers a rang eo f cour­ses in­clud­ing Em­pow­er­ing Your Pres­ence and Free­dom from Self-Con­scious­ness, which ar e de­signed to im­prove com­mu­ni­ca­tion from the board­room to the bed­room.

What­ever your in­ter­ests, make a com­mit­ment to try one new thing that ex­cites or sc ares you in June, as you al­ready know that the real magic oc­curs out­side of y our com­fort zone.
