Going on your honeymoon is an exciting and romantic time for any newlywed couple. It's a time to relax, unwind and celebrate your love for one another. While planning your honeymoon, it's important to also consider how to prepare for intimacy with your new spouse. To help you out, here are five tips that will help you get ready for honeymoon sex.

1. Communicate with Your Partner About the Honeymoon Sex

While this may seem obvious, before you even leave for your honeymoon, it's important to have an open and honest conversation with your partner about your expectations for sex. Discuss what you both feel comfortable with and what you are excited to try. Don’t just assume the sex will be great and your partner will be up for all your wild freaky ideas. Don’t also assume that he or she won’t have any of their own if any at all.

Here are a few ways you can bring up and discuss sex on your honeymoon.


Sit down with your partner with no pressure and talk openly about your desires, preferences, and boundaries during your honeymoon. Share your fantasies, favorite positions, or specific activities they would like to explore together.

Example: "Honey, I’m really looking forward to spending time with you after the wedding during our honeymoon. I’ve also been thinking about what I'd like to do to you. I want to share some of these fantasies with you but only if you promise to share yours with me after.”


For some couples, expressing what you want directly can seem a little scary. Even if you’ve been a couple for many years. If that's you, try writing a letter. It provides an opportunity to carefully articulate your feelings and expectations without the pressure of face to face.

Example: "Darling, I've written down some of my deepest desires and fantasies in this letter for our honeymoon. After reading it, I hope you’ll write me your own letter so I know what you want as well."

Shared Sexual Resources

Couples can explore various sexual resources, such as books, articles, podcasts, or videos, together to initiate conversations and learn more about each other's desires. This shared exploration can help stimulate conversations together about honeymoon sex ideas.

Example: "I found this interesting book about sexual exploration and pleasure. How about we read it together before our honeymoon? We can discuss the chapters and see if there are any new ideas or techniques we'd like to try together."

2. Pack the Right Honeymoon Sex Toys

When it comes to packing for your honeymoon, don't forget to bring the right gear for your intimate moments. This could include things like sex toys, lingerie, massage oils, lubricants, and condoms.

Oomf CBD Lube

CBD-infused lubricant can enhance sexual pleasure by promoting relaxation, reducing discomfort, and increasing sensitivity. It can help to enhance arousal and create a more pleasurable experience for both of you during your honeymoon.

Make sure that the country you’re traveling to for your honeymoon is CBD friendly. In some countries, CBD is illegal and could land you in jail. Not the start of a honeymoon anyone wants.

Sensual Massage Oil

A high-quality sensual massage oil can add a luxurious and intimate touch to the honeymoon experience. It allows partners to explore sensual touch, relieve tension, and heighten pleasure.

This is great especially if you go for a couples massage and want to continue the fun back at your hotel room.

Vibrating Couples' Ring

A vibrating couples' ring is a small, wearable device that can be placed around the base of the penis. It provides a naughty bit of fun as well as added stimulation for both partners during sex, enhancing pleasure and intimacy.

Sex Games

Honeymoon sex games are a great way to spice up your days. Instead of just lounging by the pool or beach, play a couples adult card game to increase the sexual tension between the two of you. It will also allow you to lighten up, laugh and enjoy each other's company before doing the deed later that night.

3. Practice Safe Sex

It's important to practice safe sex, even on your honeymoon. Make sure to bring plenty of condoms with you and use them each time you have sex. This is especially important if the wife is not on birth control and you don’t want to become pregnant yet.

If you want, you can include the condoms, as well as all the sex toys we mentioned above, into a honeymoon sex kit. You and your partner can open this up together at the start of your honeymoon as a signal to the both of you to begin the fun activities.

4. Take Care of Your Body

Taking care of your body is important for your overall health and well-being, but it's also important when it comes to sex. Consider getting a wax or a trim before your honeymoon, especially if you're planning on wearing a swimsuit or lingerie.

You may also want to consider using a gentle exfoliating scrub to keep your skin smooth and soft. And don't forget to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest, as this will help you feel your best during your honeymoon.

5. Be Patient

Finally, it's important to be patient with yourself and your partner when it comes to honeymoon sex. You may not feel completely comfortable or confident right away, and that's okay, specially if one or both of you are virgins.

Take your time, explore each other's bodies, and don't be afraid to ask for what you want. Remember that every couple is different, and there is no right or wrong way to experience honeymoon sex.

At the end of the day, there's really no need to rush things as you and your partner have all the time in the world to become more comfortable in intimate moments.


We hope these tips prove to be useful when it comes to helping you make your honeymoon as special as possible for you and your partner. Preparing for honeymoon sex can be both exciting and nerve-wracking.

Remember, the most important thing is to enjoy each other's company and celebrate your love for one another. Feel free to refer back to these tips if you feel like you need more help when it comes to intimacy with your partner.
