If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere then the spring equinox (also known as the vernal equinox) will be greeting you on March 20th.
In addition to being able to happily wave goodbye to winter, the Spring Equinox also brings with it many fun cultural associations.
The Spring Equinox
New beginnings is the name of the game when it comes to the Spring Equinox, and the occasion is marked by the spring hare, a balance between the darkness of winter and the light of the coming days, and an awakening for any animals that have reaped the benefits of hibernation.
It’s a time of energy, and fertility, and rejuvenation—a time to embrace life and all it has to offer. Now we don’t know about you, but one of our best ways to embrace life is through one of its most carnal manifestations, namely sex. Accuse us of having a one track mind if you will, but inspiring the erotic elements of life is what we do best and it seems to us like sex has a place in all aspects of life.
So let’s rejuvenate the year with some sexy ideas on how to celebrate the Spring Equinox.
The vernal equinox is also known as the ‘First Point of Aries’ or, to sound slightly more erotic, the ‘Cusp of Aries’. Your mind may have gone straight to Aries the war god but the Spring Equinox is a time for lovers, not fighters, and Aries here refers to the constellation (i.e. the zodiac sign).
Typical attributes of Aries includes strength, a sense of adventure, and (of course) confidence—the ability to take the ram by the horns, if you will, and really charge head first in to all life had to offer.
With this in mind take the time on the Spring Equinox to embrace a bit of self-confidence—either in terms of self-loving or other bedroom activities.
Look at yourself in the mirror and find one thing about yourself that you absolutely adore. If things you dislike come up at first then that’s fine, but redirect your focus as soon as you can. Then bring a sexual element to this aspect.
Stroke the area if it feels good, glimpse at it. See what happens when you change your posture to a more conventionally sexy pose. Then own that aspect of yourself during a wild embrace.
‘Wild’ being the key term here, because the Spring Equinox is a great time to…
Get In Touch With Your Wild Side
As Spring comes about animals begin to awaken and approach the world with revitalized vigor. Follow suit and try to use the occasion to awaken the animal inside yourself.
Play with your more primal elements in the bedroom. Bite or scratch your lover. Try doggy style, and make your mutual concerns in that moment the exquisite release of an animalistic fuck.
Get your spring hare mindset on and try rapid thrusts or deep thumping motions. Be a bit playful and bounce on the bed. Frolic like a deer or invoke the sly allure of a fox. Flutter your eyelashes like a butterfly, and growl like a ravenous wolf.
Whatever your personal animal appeal make sure that your partner is just as enthusiastic about your experimental displays of primal passion as you are. Who knows, you may even discover a new mutually shared kink along the way.
Put Some Spring Zing Into Your Romance
Fucking like rabbits is great, but maybe you’re more the tender lovin’ care kind of person?
Fear not! The Spring Equinox is great for embracing those classic romance clichés too, but with its own unique twist.
Rose petals leading up to the bedroom are one of the most iconic acts of classic love a person can offer, but why not mix it up for the equinox with some daffodil petals or wild-flowers? The difference in color will instantly catch your lover’s eye while still drawing them in.
Yellow is generally evocative of joy and confidence in people so it is also the perfect complement to the themes of the equinox (and of a loving evening together).
The Spring Equinox is also attributed with marking the year gone by and welcoming in a new one so it’s a perfect time to lie down together in the post-sex glow and talk about everything you love about each other.
You could also share other things—your hopes and dreams for the future, your secret optimisms, where you see each other in five years’ time. There is no better occasion to fondly recount these things to each other than while you’re surrounded by spring petals and a sense of assured renewal.
Explore New Sex Toys
New beginnings, new sex toys. You knew this was coming (and, if you didn’t then for shame!)
With the revitalized approach of the Spring Equinox encouraging confidence, awakening, and an embrace of refreshed sensations we can think of no better time to try a new type of sex toy, or to simply treat yourself to a new version of an old favorite.
An egg would be classic. Not only is it strongly associated with the Spring Equinox (and March in general) but there are technically ‘egg’-based toys for most anatomies out there.
And That’s All For Now!
Part of the fun of celebrating any occasion is figuring out how to make it work for you and whether or not you want to give it your own sexy twist, so take what we’ve said here and using it as a springboard to create your own events too (pun definitely intended).
Read up on the Spring Equinox (or any other upcoming occasion) and see if there is any element that appeals to you on an erotic level. If there is then there’s nothing stopping you from trying something new, especially not when it comes to this time of year.
The equinox is in your favor so take that creativity of yours and (like a fresh spring egg) get cracking!
