If you want to bring back the spark to your December 31st activities, here are some things to do on New Year’s Eve that are sure to make it a memorable night.
1. GO IN ANOTHER DIRECTION
If you’re stuck in a New Year’s rut, try something different – even the opposite. If you’re used to staying in, go out. If you normally are out until the wee hours January 1st, try staying at home.
Plan well ahead of time by searching online for events in your area (or places you are willing to drive or public transport to).
It also doesn’t have to be New Year’s themed. You can take a painting lesson, go for a walk, or sit by a fire on the beach while sipping champagne. Think about the things you and your partner like to do and make a special even out of it.
Hell, you can build a pillow fort in your living room and watch the Christmas movies you didn’t get around to while eating ridiculous amounts of junk food. You’re an adult, and you can do what you want!
2. COOK A SENSUAL DINNER
If you love kitchen creativity, plan an entire menu made from aphrodisiacs.
Even if the food doesn’t get you going, the quality time you’ll spend making it will be memorable. After it’s all done, either sit by the television and watch a New Year’s program or opt out of electronics and dine by candlelight.

3. DO NAUGHTY SHOTS
This is one night that bars love! But it’s also a time when they have to get creative to snatch customers.
Research your local bars and see if any of them have a special drink menu. Or you can research your own dirty shots and have the bartender make them for you (be ready to teach them how if it’s something uncommon).
This can be fun if you just go as a couple (can we say body shots, boys and girls), but it’s extra fun if you go with a group.
NOTE: Throw in some drinking games for another layer of mischief.

4. WATCH A SEXY MOVIE
Line up your favorite romantic or down-right raunchy movies and have a marathon. Who knows, it might give you ideas on things you can do after the credit roll. *wink
5. GO TO THE THEATER AND MAKE OUT
Be a horny teen again and take your partner to a (late) evening showing (the fewer people the better). Claim a spot in the back row and lock lips. It doesn’t matter if it’s midnight.
6. DON A WEARABLE SEX TOY
Did you know there are sex toys that you can control by smartphone? Did you also know many of these models also have a function that allows them to react to music or ambient sounds?
And what if I told you that a few of these sex toys are wearable in public? (meaning you can put them in and walk around without them falling out). See where I’m going with this?
It’s also the perfect chance to try a little “public” play that is still private – assuming you don’t orgasm in front of the entire bar.
There are also sex toy games you can play if you want to get really spicy.

7. GET A ROOM
Sometimes it’s nice to get away for an evening and have someone else clean your room and cook for you. It also might be the dose of privacy you and your lover need. Whether it’s local or very out of town is up to you and your work schedules.
Also, if you live in a large city and plan on staying out late, it might be worth getting a room nearby, so you don’t have to deal with public transport or gridlock.
Go the extra mile and have flowers and wine ready for when you arrive. So romantic.
8. GET UBER DRESSED UP
Find a place that will let you put on your favorite suit or killer dress. And, if possible, give yourself plenty of time to pull out all the stops without a rush.
Extra points if you secretly put on sexy underwear and surprise your partner with it.
9. CONFESS A SECRET
Maybe it’s the night to tell that special someone that you care for them. Perhaps you want to share a steamy fantasy with your partner. Why not do it just before the last tick of midnight and end it with a kiss?
10. START KISSING WAY BEFORE MIDNIGHT
Why not! There are no rules. Maybe even make a little game of it.
11. GO ARMED WITH ADULT GAMES
These don’t have to be lewd (unless you want them to be), but it’s always fun to have a few ideas tucked in your back pocket if you and your lover (and maybe friends) are in a merriment lull.
Truth or dare, one truth and two lies, hypothetical situations, never have I ever, sexy dice are all oldie but goodie staples. Look online if you want more ideas – there are tons!
12. CUDDLE NEXT TO A FIRE
Not everyone has access to a fireplace (or open area that allows bonfires), but if you are one of the lucky few that does, take advantage of this luxury! Bring a picnic with wine, hot chocolate, or spiked coffee and spend the last hours of the year keeping each other warm under a fuzzy blanket.
13. GO DANCING
Most bars are “drink and chat or watch television”, but there should be plenty of places that offer different kinds of dancing. Choose something that excites you, get dressed up appropriately, and spend a night dancing up a storm.
14. SEXY PRE-PARTY PREP
Even the simple act of getting ready can be something sexy or romantic. Have a shower together, rub lotion on your bodies. Slip-on each other’s underwear. Give quick kisses to erogenous zones while she’s trying to put on her makeup. Partake in explicit sexting.
Hopefully, if you’re doing things right, you’ll be hot and bother before you even get to the party.
15. THROW A SEXY PARTY
This is reserved for the spiciest of us that have friends with equal interests. Try throwing an adults-only party. What you do is up to you. Maybe ring in the New Year with some spanking? The sky is the limit.
Just remember your SSSC rules.
