The holidays are a time for indulgence, delicious feasts, and plenty of food. However, the post-feast moments don’t have to signal the end of intimacy with your partner. In fact, finding ways to be intimate after eating a lot can be both fun and connective. 

Here’s a guide on how to maintain and even enhance intimacy after a hefty meal:

Digest and Relax

Take a Stroll: Going for a leisurely walk together can aid digestion and create a relaxed setting. Enjoy the fresh air and each other’s company. Use the time to connect and check-in with each other. 

Get Cozy: Snuggling under a warm blanket or in front of a fireplace can create an intimate and comforting atmosphere. The couch always seems cozier after a big meal. 

If the weather is cold, try some Temperature Play with your partner 

Engage in Light Activities: Consider engaging in gentle activities like light stretching or yoga. This can help ease any discomfort from overeating and create a sense of tranquility. This can also be a bonding activity for you and your partner. 

Create a Sensory Experience

Aromatic Candles or Oils: Light scented candles or use essential oils to create a relaxing atmosphere. Scents like lavender or chamomile can help you both unwind and feel more at ease.

Soft Music: Play soothing music or your favorite tunes. Music has the power to evoke emotions and can enhance your post-meal relaxation.

Massage: Take turns giving each other gentle massages. This not only promotes relaxation but also fosters physical closeness.

Stay Playful and Connected

Play Games or Puzzles: Engage in light-hearted activities like board games, card games, or solving puzzles together. It’s a fun way to connect without being overly active.

Communication is Key: Open up and have light, engaging conversations. Sharing thoughts and feelings can keep the connection strong, even after a heavy meal.

Use Toys: When you want to “get down” when full, let the toys do the work. Why rough-and-tumble with each other when you can let the toys work for the both of you.

Getting Down-n-Dirty

Be Mindful of Physical Comfort: Ensure you’re both comfortable. Whether it’s on the couch, a cozy chair, or even lying down, choose positions that feel good for the both of you.

Go Slow: There is no need to rush during intimacy – especially when you’re full from all that food you both just ate. Take things even slower than you usually do; maybe explore some areas you haven’t given much attention to before.

The Goal is Pleasure: The goal of intercourse is pleasure, not orgasm. By releasing the pressure of orgasm, you can sexually enjoy yourself more (and may be more likely to experience an orgasm!)


Intimacy after a heavy meal doesn’t have to be sacrificed. It’s a time to slow down, relax, and connect on a different level. By creating a cozy, comfortable, and light-hearted environment, you and your partner can maintain closeness even after indulging in a big feast.

Remember, the key is to embrace the post-meal moments with a sense of togetherness and enjoyment. Finding activities that promote relaxation and light engagement can lead to intimate moments that reinforce your bond, even after the biggest of meals.
