It’s still winter. Politics sucks, the weather sucks, and we’re all sick of being inside. Our Winteritis stories are for women who can’t read another think piece, who’ve pushed the outer limits of time it’s possible to spend on social media, and who kind of want to shop online and hibernate until spring is here.
Winter has really not been nice to us this year. Last week, much of the country (and the Midwest in particular) was plunged into record-breaking cold that literally made people's eyelashes freeze. Ah yes, winter: the season where staying cozied up inside isn't just nice, it's vital to keeping your face from freezing.
If you eventually run out of options on Netflix, and can't bear another minute of aimlessly scrolling through social media while you're cooped up inside, consider turning up the heat with a little snowed-in sex. These eight real-life stories from women who got it on while they were stuck indoors will make you want to huddle together for, you know, "warmth."
"I'd been chatting with a guy for a couple of weeks, and we decided to meet for drinks on Friday night after work. As we sat down at the bar of a fancy hotel near my office, he asked me if I'd seen the weather report—a big blizzard was apparently on the way. He was super handsome and our texting had admittedly gotten pretty hot, so I followed my first impulse and said, Why don't we just… stay? We found a room on HotelsTonight, got a few drinks in us, and headed upstairs so turned on we almost didn't make it to the room. As it turned out, the blizzard was bad, REALLY bad. The hotel sent all but a skeleton crew home for the night so there was no room service, the bar was closed, and we had absolutely nothing to do except tear it up in the room. We tied each other up with bathrobe belts, took a long, hot shower together, and stayed up all night playing. We eventually fell asleep around dawn, and woke up to a bright, sunny day in a GREAT mood."
"A few years ago, when my first son was only 5 months old, Tennessee had a rare snow day that kept my husband and I from work. My son had started taking consistent naps around lunch time, so while he slept my husband and I spent some (also) rare quality time together. Apparently, the time was TOO quality because five weeks later I was told that I was five weeks pregnant."
"My partner and I love snowed-in sex so much that we've been hoping she'll have a snow day from work! When we were in college, there were a few times that we stayed up late having sex because we either already knew we had a snow day the next day, or we were pretty certain classes would be canceled. Those were some of my favorite nights—staying up late with friends, watching movies, laughing, playing games, and then falling asleep next to her after having late night sex that we'd never have if we had 8 a.m. classes the next day."
"During the polar vortex, school was cancelled and businesses were closed, so I had a few days where I could work from home and definitely didn’t want to go outside in the frigid arctic tundra. I've heard about 'polar vortex babies,' and more people having sex during blizzards—why not take advantage of that idea solo? I took a nice hot shower, dressed up in some lingerie, and used my vibrator. It was as good as the real thing with none of the drama."
