You complain you’re cold. He doesn’t understand. The lights go out, the wall goes up.
Sound familiar? Well, ladies, we now have science on our side and a solution that will make everyone happy — especially you.
Once upon a time, not that long ago, Dutch scientists concluded that women can increase their sexual pleasure by … keeping their feet warm in bed.
Cue Nookies, The Original Pleasure Sox. Cozy meets sexy with these temperature-regulating, super-soft foot-warmers that are guaranteed to banish the bedtime chill.
How groundbreaking is this? Well, Nookies may be the only undergarment label that promises a 30% increase in orgasms. Yes, promises. For once, we’re telling you about something sexy that should stay on all night!
If this sounds like ridiculous hype, read this first before you dismiss Nookies’ claims. The 2005 Dutch university study looked at differences in arousal and pleasure between men and women. Among its findings:
The experiments also revealed a rather surprising effect: both men and women found it easier to have an orgasm when they kept their socks on. Draughts in the scanning room left couples complaining of “literally cold feet”, and providing a pair of socks allowed 80 per cent rather than 50 per cent to reach a climax while their brains were scanned.
Nookies are not your old bulky and sweaty gym socks; this is flirty hosiery made with finer-than-cashmere yarns. “Innocently suggestive, playfully seductive,” as they say. Mostly, though, they’re meant to keep you warm where it matters.
The flirtatious cherry-adorned hosiery comes in various heights (so you can style your lingerie wardrobe appropriately, no doubt) and styles to help you do away with your cold-feet hesitations.
The Sex Kitten Sabrina (bottom photo below) is the most popular style; perfect for warmer-weather climates, this pair keeps your toes — and little else — warm. The Hanky Panky Pamela (above) is the sexiest of over-the-knee socks, and the OH! Susannah pair (second photo below) offers sexy pinup stripes while keeping you comfortable. Come Hither Christine is the fourth option, an elegant ankle sock in a classic cut.
And all this ecstasy comes cheaply, too. Nookies range from $10-$30 a pair and are available through the brand’s online store.
To amp up the pleasure, each pair of socks comes with a Nookies Pleasure Map, illustrating reflexology points on your feet. So pull on a pair, hand him the map, and have fun.
There’s no shame in wearing socks to bed. In fact, we now wholeheartedly recommended it.
