But know this: a sin­gle sexy thought can be enough to send “get ready!” signals to your brain and nether re­gions, prompt­ing de­sire and in­creas­ing vagi­nal lu­bri­ca­tion, says gy­ne­col­o­gist eliz­a­beth poynor, md. tap into this ef­fect from the minute your alarm goes off and you’ll build up your sex drive hour by hour— to the point that your body will be scream­ing for a re­lease. use these tricks to gift your brain a lady boner so ma­jor, you’ll be rar­ing to go by tonight’s hookup.

7 A.M. Lather Up

In the shower, use a wash con­tain­ing an es­sen­tial oil that primes you for get­ting down. For in­stance, stud­ies show that laven­der oil can lower stress (a to­tal O-blocker) and jas­mine oil can stim­u­late your en­tire body. Rub it on your skin us­ing your hands to ac­ti­vate feel­good oxy­tocin. (We like L’oc­c­i­tane Aro­ma­cholo­gie Re­lax­ing Shower Gel, P1,150, for its de­sire-boost­ing ex­tracts.)

7:30 A.M. spritz on per­fume

Specif­i­cally, a pow­dery one. Yes, re­ally—the scent of baby pow­der can in­crease fe­male arousal by 13 per­cent, per the Smell and Taste Treat­ment and Re­search Foun­da­tion in Chicago.

9 A.M. Ban­ter With the Barista

Just think­ing that your new cof­fee guy is flirt­ing with you—whether or not it’s true—can turn you on, says An­thony Bo­gaert, PHD, a psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sor at Brock Univer­sity. Walk around like ev­ery­one wants you and it will have a cu­mu­la­tive ef­fect.

11 A.M. peek at some sexy cou­ples

Per­mis­sion to take a work break granted. Do some photo re­con on your phone of var­i­ous Hol­ly­wood hot­ties in steamy movie scenes. Re­search shows that, un­like straight-iden­ti­fy­ing men, straight-iden­ti­fy­ing women can get all hot and both­ered by erotic vi­su­als fea­tur­ing men with women, women with women, men with men…your body’s sex­ual re­sponse doesn’t judge!

12:30 P.M. skip the sand­wich

“Carbs el­e­vate blood su­gar, which leads to a sup­pres­sion of the hor­mone DHEA—AND when DHEA falls, sex drive de­clines with it,” says func­tional nu­tri­tion­ist Alisa Vitti, cre­ator of Myflo, a pe­riod-and-hor­mone track­ing app. Too many carbs can also lead to li­bido-killing bloat (oh, bur­rito belly, you cruel mis­tress), so opt for a high-pro­tein, low-carb lunch like chicken salad in a let­tuce wrap.

3:45 P.M. rewind a Bit

Rem­i­nisc­ing about sexy en­coun­ters you’ve had in the past—like the time your part­ner sur­prised you with oral right af­ter you walked in the door— can help you “think” your­self off. But if you need a more sub­stan­tial re­minder to spur hot mem­o­ries, reread­ing old X-rated sexts works too.

5 P.M. put on a pod­cast

Prefer­ably one that fea­tures a deep male voice. A study found that a low male voice sug­gests a big­ger phys­i­cal frame—an evo­lu­tion­ary turn-on for fe­males. Not that you need sci­ence to tell you that Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch’s tone tit­il­lates you in all the right places.

6:30 P.M. get a slight Buzz

As you’re get­ting ready for your date, slip a re­mote-con­trol vi­bra­tor into your undies. Even if you never turn it on, just know­ing a lit­tle friend is along for the ride will put sex front and cen­ter in your mind. Hand over the re­mote to your plu­sone at the end of the night—that is, if you can hold out that long.
