Ah, the holidays. The gifts, the decorations, the caroling. Why, it's enough to make any guy hornier than usual.

Maybe it's the anticipation of a big surprise. Or perhaps it's the seductive way you eat a candy cane. Whatever the cause, the holidays are a mating call for men everywhere to go get some.

Thing is, women view the holidays as time to celebrate with friends and family. Playing with your jingle bells is the last thing on your wife's mind. So how do you go about changing her attitude and bringing some joy to your world? Glad you asked! Here are a few surefire ideas that are all but guaranteed to get your wife wanting sex during the holidays!

Give her a frankincense back rub - Massages can be very sensual. Toss in some seasonal frankincense, and before you know it, she'll be equating Christmas with your oily, kneading hands. Pavlov wasn't so crazy after all, now was he?

Appreciate that holiday sweater - Admit it. You've got one. Everyone's got one. A hideous, ugly, ridiculous holiday sweater that even your regular sweaters are embarrassed to be near. Well, it's finally time to put it to good use. Meet your wife in the bedroom wearing that holiday sweater ... and nothing else.

Hang mistletoe from your belt buckle - You know what they say about mistletoe. About the kissing. Well, if you hang it ... yeah, forget it. This one will either get you a laugh or a slap across your face.

Fruitcake in bed - Express your love of fruitcake and tell wifey you want to enjoy a few pieces up in the bedroom with her. You can't have fruitcake without whipped cream, right? Once you've got the food and your lady in bed, you've got all the ingredients for one hot night (minus the fruitcake)!

Channel Christian Grey - Don't start spanking your wife - that's certainly not in the Christmas spirit! Instead, when she's hanging up the decorations, go over and gently whisper in her ear, telling her exactly what you'd like to do to with that garland.

How do you get your chestnuts roasting during the holiday season?
