What's worse than being a contestant on "The Bachelor"? Watching "The Bachelor" alone in your bedroom while your partner watches a football game in the living room. Wouldn't it be more fun to do something together?
We all tend to hibernate in midwinter. The days are short and the nights are cold. We put on sweaters and socks and forget about sexy lingerie and romance. We turn on the autopilot and forget to make sure that our partner knows how much we love and cherish them.
Why not take advantage of all that time that you're both trapped indoors to have a stay at home date night? Rekindle the fire and bring sexy back to your home. You'll look forward to getting home after work and you won't be bored. We've got some ideas about what you can do to spice up your winter nights at home.

1. Have a Nintendo Wii Tournament
It's all fun and games until someone starts to win. How long has it been since you've challenged your partner to a game? There's nothing like a little competition to turn up the sexual heat in the room.
2. Role Play
Pretend you're the chief medical officer on the USS Enterprise and your boyfriend is Mr. Spock. Give his body a full and complete check-up from head to toe. There's no reason why you have to wait for Halloween to wear your favorite costumes.
3. Play Hide-n-Seek
This might be even more fun if you make it "strip" hide 'n seek. Get in touch with your inner child when you and your partner play an indoor game. You can stalk each other through the house with Nerf guns or have an old-fashioned rubber band fight. All that matters is that in the end you end up naked and intertwined.
4. Read Romance Novels Out-loud
We're not suggesting that you sit in separate corners and read bodice rippers. We're suggesting that you find the dirty parts in some of your favorite books and read them out-loud to each other. You won't believe how sexy this activity can be until you hear the object of your desire reading aloud a passage that set your imagination on fire.
5. Have A Wine Tasting
Pick up a few bottles of some various wines you've been wanting to try. Prepare a cheese tray. Put on some romantic music and spend the evening trying new wines. Be sure to keep a record of your favorites. It doesn't matter if you get a little tipsy, you won't need to call a cab to get home.
