College is the best time to experience hookups. Yeah, the ones where you go back to your dorm room to do the dirty. It’s when we are learning what we want and don’t want in the bedroom — and in future relationships. 

If you want to get your sex drive through the roof, here’s what you can do to experiment and try out new experiences in college. 


There’s nothing wrong with having candles. These can elevate intimacy, and will also help you to relax. If you want to spice things up, try wax play, or (with consent) pouring a small amount of  warm wax on your partner to integrate multiple sensations into the experience. If you want to get a special candle for the moment, you can go to an adult store and purchase skin-safe candles for that reason.  


Think Mean Girls, specifically the scene where Coach Carr gives a lesson on sex education and pass a box of condoms out to students after class. You should always use protection when you’re having sex, because if you don’t, you will — in Coach Carr’s voice — get pregnant. Plus, they help prevent STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. 


This will be your best friend in the bedroom. Lubricants help make sex and foreplay more comfortable. It’s great to get water-based lube, because it will not break the condom. If you’re a college student on a budget, you can usually get lube for free at your school’s health center. They have all the supplies you need!

Work Your Schedule with Your Roommate

This needs to be addressed when you move into your dorm room. If you’re bringing someone over to have fun, and you don’t want your roommate to be there or walk in during the act, why not text your roommate code names? For example, try sending each other either a word or fruit emoji so that way you both will not embarrass each other. 

Sex Playlist

To get you in the mood, try creating a sex playlist. Music helps relax your body, and everyone has their favorite song that gives them motivation, especially when getting their freak on in the bedroom. Try putting some of your favorite artists like Beyoncé, Megan Thee Stallion, Rihanna, or Cardi B, to give you some fever. 

Take these tips and get your sex experience on the next level!
