Arkansas is finally enjoying autumn in all its glory. Ask any women what her favorite thing is about the fall and you’ll get a mixed bag of answers, but we’re guessing that boots and sweaters probably are in the top ten. We endure the sweltering heat of summer with the promise of cozying up in our favorite sweater come cooler weather. It’s more than just warmth we’re seeking, though, its the feeling of the materials touching our skin.

The Cut sums it up beautifully, “It makes sense that the word feeling can refer to an emotion and a sense of touch. Like smells and songs, certain textures can call up specific emotional states — the sense of calm coziness, for example, that comes from stroking the fur of a cat, or wrapping turn up the heatyourself up in a fleecy blanket.”

Turn Up the Heat

Touch can add another layer to your sex life too. According to Women’s Health Magazine, adding heat in the bedroom isn’t just a euphemism for sex, it’s also a great tip for increasing the way things feel because, “It increases blood flow, which makes your skin more responsive to arousal. Try the hot water trick: Pre-oral, take a sip of hot (not boiling!) water and swish it around your mouth before swallowing. The warm sensations on your S.O.’s nether regions will send him over the edge.” Follow the link to their article for more great bedroom tips.

Fetish Materials

You’ve probably heard that some people have latex or leather fetishes. These materials have definite feelings associated with them as well as a cult-like following. Men’s Journal shares that “Some like the smell and some need to feel it on their face.” A Wiki article takes the topic of leather a step further stating, “any people associate leather culture withBDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sado/Masochism, also called “SM” or “S&M”) practices and its many subcultures. But for others, wearing black leather clothing is an erotic fashion that expresses heightened masculinity or the appropriation of sexual power; love of motorcycles, motorcycle clubs, and independence; and/or engagement in sexual kink or leather fetishism.”

Sensory Overload

Latex checks off a lot of boxes for people when it comes to touch. “The constriction of latex not only heightens physical sensitivity but also apparently makes your body ultra sensitive to temperature. So as things start to heat up, so do you,” according to an article on Vice. It also creates a physical barrier which, for some with sensitivities to being touched, makes intimacy more of a safe space, thus more enjoyable.

Lingerie is Luxe

While Quora lists several reasons why lingerie is such a turn on for men, they highlight the way it feels and we couldn’t agree more with this statement: “Lingerie is soft and silky unlike most things that men wear and when placed or rubbed against a mans skin can feel very pleasing and erotic and start tingling sensations they would love to have on other parts of their body as well as all over their body all at once.”
