Sultry Mediterranean nights will boost libidos lighting the flames of passion in bedrooms across the nation, according to experts. While many will be stripping off to cool down through the next week with others will be ditching the layers to heat things up. Overnight temperatures are expected to break records over the coming days as the nation gears up for a heatwave nooky bonanza.
Annabelle Knight, a sex and relationship expert with sex toy specialists Lovehoney, said: “Britain is facing a sex boom as temperatures go red hot this week.
“Science shows us that passion rises at the same time as temperatures and this is why we feel more loved up during a heatwave.”
Sunshine boosts the body’s production of vitamin D and testosterone levels in men further driving Britons’ lust, she said.
A stint in the sun can not only increase sex drive but can help men achieve better orgasms, she added.
She said: “Hot weather does increase libido because after exposure to sunlight our bodies produce more vitamin D, this then leads to increases in testosterone levels.
“Research is available which reveals men have 33 percent more testosterone flowing through their bodies in June compared to January.
“Men with more testosterone have more orgasms, in other words, spending time in the sun can lead to better sex.”
Britain could be facing a spring baby boom with an increased number of women likely to conceive durning heatwaves, she warned.
“It is too early to say if there will be a baby boom after this summer’s heatwave and there has not been research done on the subject after other notable heatwaves such as 1976,” she said.
“But there is every chance there will be more births in nine months time based on behavioural patterns.”
Temperatures will hover around the 22C (71.6F)-mark on Wednesday night as steamy Continental heat smothers the nation, according to the Met Office.
Meteorologist Alex Burkill said: “It is going to be very warm over the coming days as warm air originating from Africa comes up into the UK from France and Spain.
“It is going to be warm overnight Wednesday and into Thursday, although temperatures may be slightly down compared to the start of the week thanks to clearer skies.
“However we are still looking at temperatures not dropping below around 22C (71.6F) or 23C (73.4F).”
Hannah Findley, a meteorologist for The Weather Company, said: “It will be a very hot week with air from the near Continent moving northwards across the British Isles, we could see 37C (98.6F) on Thursday.
“Temperatures will be up to 8C above average and around 10 degrees above in the south-east on Thursday.”
