Dr. Jess on Sex: Reignite the spark this summer at some of Toronto’s cosiest spots
The city is on fire, and August is the perfect time to explore the romance, excitement and sensuality of our urban landscape.
If you’re looking to reignite the spark, book a date with your partner and check out Toronto’s steamiest spots for lovers.
If your relationship could benefit from an adrenaline rush, visit the CN Tower for EdgeWalk and let mutual fear rekindle your desire for one another.
If, however, the thrill of hanging at 1,168 feet doesn’t do it, take a walk in Mount Pleasant Cemetery at sundown or head to the Garrison on Aug. 16 for Tell Me Something Good to hear real-life sex stories from fellow Torontonians. This free live show allows willing storytellers to put their name in a box and be chosen at random to come on stage and dish the details of a steamy rendezvous.
The Docks Drive-In has the potential to arouse more than just nostalgia, so head down this weekend to take in a double feature and reminisce about your early, untamed days of dating.
While driving to the lakefront theatre, ditch the day-to-day talk and instead retell the story of your first date or listen to music from the year you met.
For those inspired by romance, pack a blanket, some cheese and a few cans of Origin sparkling wine to take in the sunset with your love.
Visit Riverdale Park East for a skyline view or Grenadier Pond if you prefer the pastoral.
Better yet, hail a water taxi and head to Hanlan’s Point or Mugg’s Island (if you can score an invite to Island Yacht Club Spoke on the Water) for the most romantic sunset views in the city.
Like most couples, you could probably benefit from a change of pace to set the scene for romance, so consider a visit to Guild Park and Gardens for a hand-in-hand historical walk.
The gardens ooze romance and the historical monuments scattered throughout the grounds offer a well-needed step back in time for couples looking to S-L-O-W down.
There is something exciting about discovering architectural relics, so be sure to look for the old Oxford University Press pediment, Victoria Park School bell and O’Keefe Brewery keystone as you wander.
The summer is the perfect time of year to plan a date night, just for the two of you.
The weather is great, the days are longer and, in many cases, the kids are off to camp.
So take advantage and make time to reconnect with your partner and reignite that spark.
