Glamour‘s Smitten blog just posted six cute ways to get in the mood for some lovin’. One of their picks: Using a post-shower moisturizer to get frisky.

This one is for you and your partner. After slipping out of the shower, ask your man to join you in the bathroom. Have him rub lotion on your lower half—your legs and maybe even butt cheeks—while you focus on your upper body. The slick feeling of skin on skin will have both of you feeling hot-to-trot before the lotion even has a chance to soak in!

Hey, we’re all for that! Here at SheKnows, we like a nice glass of red wine to ease the transition from work day to sex night. What are your favorite ways to get in the mood? Let me know in the comments!
