I’m going to tell you an embarrassing but true story from one of my friends: one summer, she was doin’ it with her BF when, all of a sudden, she fainted. Like, while they were in the middle of having sex and she fainted. As horrifying as that sounds (she was okay, of course, and woke up seconds later), it actually is pretty common. Sex is really like a workout, and if you’re doing it in a hot and sticky room on an 80 degree day, you might get a little overworked, which can be scary. There are, luckily, some ways to make sure you are being safe this summer when it comes to having sex.
I’m not saying that you will definitely faint if you are having sex this summer, but you do need to be a little cautious when you’re doing it. The summer heat can do a lot of things to your body, and you want to be sure to be safe. Before you and your bae/partner/crush get it on this summer, you really should take a look at these important summer sex tips that can, potentially, save you from an awkward “fainting during sex” situation. Good luck! Drink water!!!
Stay HydratedSTAY HYDRATED, GIRL. If you’re hooking up with someone in a room that isn’t air conditioned, this is especially important. Between the heat and the work you’re doing, you could get dehydrated, which can make you feel sick and even make you pass out – but you can prevent that by drinking water. I know a lot of girls don’t want to drink a lot of water before sex because they think they might need to pee in the middle, but your need to pee actually diminishes when you’re turned on and having sex, which is pretty cool.

Use Ice CubesNot only is this a good way to keep cool, it's also a good way to ~spice up~ your sex life a little bit. Ice cubes can help stimulate you down there, or you can even put them in your mouth before giving oral sex for a super different feeling. Try is out! Image Source: iStock
Do It In The ShowerShower sex is good! You can adjust the temperature and make it feel like you are having sex under a tropical waterfall, if you're into that. It can also help cool you both down, which is good when you're both dripping in sweat. Then, afterwards, you can wash your hair! Super convenient. Image Source: iStock
Be Cautious Of Outdoor SexOkay, you CAN have sex outside, but be cautious of where you're doing it, and when. If you're in your backyard, late at night, you might be fine. But, you should keep away from doing it somewhere public and germy, like a public park. Not only will it be hot, but it will also be dirty and you really don't want to be exposed to bugs and dirt in 90 degree weather. Image Source: iStock
Remember To Close Your WindowsYou probably have your windows open during the summer to try and get a cross breeze, but you also might forget that the window is open until you're having sex with your bae and suddenly realize that you're being loud AF, right next to your window. It's not a HUGE deal if someone hears you, it's just a little embarrassing. Image Source: iStock
Pee After SexNo matter what time of year it is, you really need to pee after sex. But you ESPECIALLY need to do so in the summer, since you could be more likely to get a UTI during the hot and sticky months. After you have sex, you need to make sure to get that bacteria cleared out from inside you, so, for the sake of your health, please pee after doing it. Image Source: iStock
Don't Do It In A PoolI don't know what it is, but, for some reason, people are really into having pool sex. And that really isn't the best idea. Not only is a pool full of germs and dangerous chemicals, but it also can cause a condom to break, or put you at risk for a ton of infections. Just, keep it inside, okay? Image Source: iStock
