Love it or hate it, pumpkin spice is not going anywhere anytime soon.
The autumnal spice blend — a mix of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice — has been used for years in recipes, pumpkin-based or otherwise. However, as more brands release new and unconventional uses of this flavor and the PSL fandom grows online, one thing is clear: fans are willing to add it to all parts of their life.
But what about the bedroom?
We’ve rounded up seven products and positions to help “pumpkin spice” up your sex life. Try one (or all) of these and get ready to bring on the fall fun! (Or just laugh along with us. Because, really? Capitalism is ridiculous.)
1. Pumpkin Spice Lube
This lubricant is described by the seller as “…just what you need for playful bedroom sessions that excite the taste buds.” Several reviewers rave about the real pumpkin spice taste, with many saying it’s the perfect bedroom addition for the true PSL fan out there. Because it’s water-based, this lube is perfect for those looking to have sex with any kind of condom.
2. Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Spice
What better way to spice up your bedroom foreplay than with a little fall flavor? If you’re a fan of whipped cream, sprinkle a pumpkin spice blend on top of places you’ve applied the cream before going to town.
Bonus points if you follow your sexual romp up with slices of pumpkin pie in bed!
3. Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm
Kissing is an oftentimes overlooked, but incredibly arousing action to add to any sexual session, or simply enjoy on its own! If you’re looking for a fun challenge or game to play in the bedroom, apply some pumpkin spice-flavored lip balm and place a bet on how long the flavor lasts. The prize? Well, we’ll leave that up to you to decide.
4. Pumpkin Spice Pasties
Sometimes it’s nice to feel more cute than sexy in the bedroom. If that’s the case you may want to try these sweet pumpkin pie nipple pasties on for size. Because they’re waterproof, you can use them to surprise your partner before a steamy session of shower sex. The pastie-bilities are endless!
5. Pumpkin Spice Candles
Is there anything more romantic than candle-lit sex? For pumpkin spice lovers, the addition of the warm, spiced scent can help inspire a more sensual, intimate sexual session.
Important note: if you’re into candle or wax play, only use special, body-safe wax candles, not the ones included on this list.
6. Pumpkin Spice Cock Ring
If you’re a leather lover, this one’s for you. While this product does not technically have the pumpkin spice scent or taste, we’ll let it slide. Cock rings are a great toy for anyone with a penis as they help increase sensitivity and may lead to harder erections. Also, they just feel damn good!
If you’re into matching sets, this item comes with an optional matching ball stretcher.
7. Pumpkin Spice Sex Position
Last but certainly not least, we have a fall-themed position coined by inclusive sex toy and lingerie brand Ann Summers. The move, called the “Pumpkin Spice,” is a fun and festive variation on cowgirl that relies on a simultaneous rocking sensation to achieve orgasm for both partners.
To try out this position, you should, “Take control of your partner by straddling them and outstretching your legs on either side of them, then take hold of their shoulders as they lay back, helping keep you in the driving seat and well in control.”
Though we’re unsure where the pumpkin spice actually comes into play, we’re fully here for it!
Whether you’re a PSL-die hard or just looking to spice up your sex life, these fun and festive additions can serve as a great way to connect and bond with your sexual partners this fall.
