All couples enjoy date nights but may shy away from them because of the expense, or because they’re bored with options they’ve already exhausted. For a wonderful date night in your own backyard, consider using your hot tub. You don’t need to go anywhere or spend any money, and you and your partner can be as casual as you like because you won’t need to wear anything except bathing suits. There’s also no need to worry about getting kicked out; the hot tub closes when you say it does. Here, we’ve provided a few tips and tricks to help you create a perfect hot tub date.
The Food of Love
Some people don’t like to eat in the hot tub because they worry the snacks will drop into the water. If this is a concern for you, make your own floating containers using Rubbermaid containers and pool noodles cut to fit them. Try easy, portable snacks like fruit kebabs or squares of dark chocolate. Veggie trays or chips and dip can also be a good idea, but make sure the dip is securely anchored in the center of your container or plate. Other fun ideas include miniature sausages, cheese cubes, or small sandwiches.
Play, Then Love
Many couples find it easier to get “in the mood” if they’ve been active first. Try exercising together and showering before getting in the tub, or alternate time between your hot tub and pool. Do silly dives together (safely!) or play pool games, or if you don’t want to be too active, try hot tub yoga with some relaxing music in the background. Many aquatic yoga websites have plenty of partner stretches to choose from.
Set the Mood
Overall, the hot tub should be a mellow and fun location. If you and your partner want to enjoy it together, set the mood. Use flameless candles in your favorite scents; rose, lavender, mango, and melon are all great olfactory aphrodisiacs. Play some soft music, and massage each other while in the tub.
