Published . By Faith Strickland.

Has lock down got you feeling bored, lonely, and - um - horny? Whether you’re shacked up with a partner or self-isolating solo, all this extra time has got our minds wandering to more physical activities. And with sex events and parties still one of our most popular articles, it seems we’re not alone. So next time you’re twiddling your thumbs or looking to mix it up from your usual trackie and t-shirt days, check out our list of ways to sex up your lock down, from life-drawing and slinky burlesque through to naked speed dating. 

Intimacy Matters Adult Workshops

If the additional hours spent in the vicinity of your bed has you questioning all things horizontal, Colin Richards is your man for sexy lockdown ideas. The ‘sex and relationship engineer’ has appeared on TV and in publications, such as Cosmo, to help people improve their relationship - both with others and themselves. During lock down, the guru is hosting several classes, including a look into fetish and kink, as well as the psychology of attraction.

Quirky Speed Dating

You’ve seen Naked Attraction and now it’s your turn to recreate it. Before you start sharing nudes with that guy in all the group photos from Hinge (is he the fit one?), check out DateinaDash’s cheeky events, which in the past have included the likes of virtual naked speed dating and rounds of 'never have I ever'. If you’re not quite up for sharing your innermost secrets - amongst other things - with a prospective lover, the organisation has plenty of other lockdown dating ideas to help you find some lock down love.

Online Burlesque Classes

If, like me, it appears that your tracksuit bottoms have fused onto your arse and showering has become a concept rather than part of your morning routine, why not try something a little slinkier? While we all look sexy doing whatever we want, whenever we want, this burlesque class is a dose of old school glamour as an online teacher shows you how to shake your tail feathers. Along with an empowering private tutorial, there’s a pastie making course - that’s nipple tassels to you and me.

FORBIDDENDOG Strip Life Drawing

Dip your nib in the ink - literally - at one of FORBIDDENDOG’s kinky lockdown life-drawing classes. From ball gags, bondage, and blindfolds in the fetish Friday lesson through to nude poses and body contortions in the dirty life drawing session, model and performer Sofia Ruby is inspiring creativity in these art meets. Tickets are only a fiver and all you need to bring is paints, pencils and a blank sheet of paper.
