There is always pressure surrounding wedding night sex and wedding night rituals, but here at Wedding Chicks, we hate stress and obligation and expectations—especially when you’ve been planning a wedding for months (if not years). Your wedding night should be exactly as you want it to be. If there’s sex, then great; if there’s not (because you literally just want to pass out), more power to you, you can proceed with the deed at another time. But what about hot honeymoon sex? Throughout the last few decades of your life, you’ve probably been conditioned to think that you need to have unbelievable sex on your first trip away as a married couple. We’re here to tell you that you don’t need that added pressure. This vacay needs to be whatever you want it to be, so let’s change the script from “you’re only there for a short time, make sure you sex is bangin’” to “this is our time, we’re married AF now, so however things go down at our destination is perfect. No need to put pressure on ourselves!” Foria, a foremost leader in the sexual wellness category, helped us put this list for pressure-less honeymoon sex together—and we’re so here for it!
Okay, so yes, 🔥 honeymoon sex is the dream. But there is NO need to be all in your head about it before you get there. Being tense is the last thing you want going into the getaway of all getaways.
You can make things more relaxed, though, if you consider these things to keep you relaxed and more aroused for your romantic (and remote) romps.
You probably already have your honeymoon booked, especially if your wedding is coming up in the not-too-distant future or even in the fall or winter. But you might want to explore more luxe accommodations, if you can (if it’s in your budget; if it’s even available at your resort/hotel). Even if this isn’t your first trip together, it’s still a major milestone in your relationship—and it should be celebrated. If your room is already totally tricked out #luxeonluxe then enjoy! But if you could do with some extras, like a private, secluded pool in your room’s backyard, an outdoor shower, an inspiring en-suite hot tub, etc., don’t be afraid to ask.

Did you get a few pieces of lingerie for your wedding shower that just don’t match your vibe? Maybe they’re too risque or too cutesy or too cheesy? (Not everyone gets amped about silk or satin panties with a new last name embroidered on the butt…). Or maybe your bridal party went in on a few new sex toys to ‘spice up’ your honeymoon, and you’re either not into toys, weirdly turned off by them, or not ready to throw something new into your sexual repertoire when you’re far away from home. We get it, especially having seen or heard of those crazy freak accidents/events that have happened to couples on honeymoons. Instead, pack the pieces you feel most comfortable in or the ones you know your hubs or wifey loves to see you in—don’t get caught up in needing to bring something white or blue, or with lace embellishments or appliques, etc. Whatever gets you turned on to take things off is a win, in our books.

On the regular, we’re never ones to say go ahead, go all in on gluttony. But this is your honeymoon. Eat, drink, and be merry, 100 percent. Whether you’re staying at a world-class all-inclusive resort, going somewhere more exotic and staying at a variety of places, each with its own vibe, or doing a road trip, hitting up dozens of cities with epicurean delights of every kind, exploring aphrodisiacal foods and sipping seductive cocktails will help you unwind, relax, boost your libido, and poise your minds and bodies for pleasure.
The hype around honeymoons is to get busy all day, every day. If that’s your jam, then, by all means, get itttt, but don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything if you’re not in bed from check-in to check-out. This is a trip for you to do everything, nothing, or all the things in between (the sheets or not). So, don’t get hung up on a schedule. Do your outdoor activities, have your poolside drinks, go see shows or check out the swanky hotel piano bar, and when you feel the energy start sparking, then go back to your room, shut the door, lock up, and strip down. As long as you’re having fun, without the idea in the back of your head that you have to be doing it, “like newlyweds should,” you’re doing it right!
Traveling together, honeymoon included, provides you with more shared memories, and offers a lower-stress environment away from your everyday lives to get back into an in-sync sexual rhythm (because if anything harshes a healthy sex drive, it’s planning a wedding for months on end). While you’re packing for your titillating time away, and stocking up on all your travel-size amenities anyway, consider bringing a few more accoutrements with you, like The Honeymoon Set from Foria. It includes full-sized picks from the brand’s entire Intimacy Collection, oils, heightened-sensitivity suppositories, and a deeply satisfying bath soak all bundled together in a muslin bag that’s vacay-ready.
You can definitely take a peek at The Honeymoon Set in more detail, but here’s what we know about the CBD-infused combination of products, and how they’ll get you in the mood naturally.
Used topically, CBD promotes increased blood flow to all the important [private] parts – a vital part of arousal and sexual pleasure. It’ll also help relax muscles and ease tension, supporting comfort where it counts (and when you’re on your honeymoon, doing lots of sightseeing, scuba diving, kayaking, bungee jumping, ziplining, hiking in the heat, really, anything active that’s working out your bodies, you need that big time). Discomfort with sex is more common than you'd think and CBD has been shown to help manage this – gently and naturally. Soooo, do you have high hopes for your honeymoon? Good! Just be careful about creating White Lotus-level expectations for yourselves… because real-life doesn’t always measure up, and that’s okay. Keep the above things in mind—and at the ready (that honeymoon set is a travel must—and we promise it’ll bode well for all your post-wedding boning.
