Are a lot of your friends birthdays in September? Ever wonder why? It is a simple explanation- a lot of babies are conceived on Christmas! Based on a record database by MooseRoots, Christmas is the number one holiday people are intimate, followed by New Year’s Eve, and then Thanksgiving. A study in 2004 showed that a large number of men buy Playboy magazines only in the month of December. Talk about feeling frisky! While you are home for the holidays, and find yourself feeling more aroused than normal, get it on. As many studies have shown, it is normal to have sex on the brain more during the holidays. So this holiday season don’t be a bah humbug, be a hump-bug! That’s right, as the snow falls and the fire burns, put that elf back on the shelf and bring sexy back!
Why The Increased Interest?
The word sex was searched on the web the most around Christmas, not just in the U.S., but all over the world. People were not just searching porn, they were also searching general knowledge about sex and contraception. There are a couple of reasons people get it on more during the holidays. One reason is because the closeness the holidays promote. The holidays are all about the message of giving, love, and being together. People feel happier, and are more likely to start thinking about a family around the holidays.
Another reason for an increased interest in sex is alcohol consumption. All of that spiked cider from a Christmas party will not only promote bad judgment, but frisky behavior as well.
No one wants to be alone during the holidays, which brings us to another reason people desire more sex during this season. People are more likely to seek out sex partners than to be alone. We crave connection, and the sense of being wanted, especially during Christmas. And what better connection is there than a sexual one?
During the holidays, we get together with our families, immediate and extended, and learn to appreciate each other. It is the one time during the year that everyone is free of work and school, and can just relax with friends and family. This closeness is especially true for parents and adults to reconnect. This is the time to get rid of the stressors in your life, put away cell phones and electronics, and bring out the lingerie and toys.
Baby It’s Cold Outside
It is cold outside, so what does that mean? Well, a lot of cuddling and sex sessions of course! Did you know that northeast U.S. has better lovers? A survey conducted around the country found that the Northeast came in first with claims that their lovers are better in bed during Christmas. My guess is that it might be due to the weather being so cold. Save up on your heating costs, and create some body heat under the sheets.
The closer you feel with a person, the more likely you are to communicate, connect sexually, and orgasm more. This happens to take place more during, you guessed it, the holidays! 34% of people report to having 3 times as many orgasms at Christmas than during any other time of the year. That is enough reason for anyone to want to have sex on Christmas. Bring on the pleasure!
The holidays can bring a lot of stress from rushing, and trying to get a lot done so that you can enjoy it with your loved ones. We have to shop, cook, travel, get projects done, decorate and so forth. But another thing the holidays bring on is sexual desire. It is no coincidence that a lot of people are born in September. Grab your partner and make the best of your time together.
