Sex and skiing
2nd December 2011
Are they the best pastimes around? A press release from a specialist ski tour operator points out a few similarities! Which activity do you prefer?
According to Directski it is a tough call to choose between them.
But the company has issued a press release pointing out ten reasons why sex and skiing are the Brits’ favourite winter pastimes.
It is a simple PR stunt of course but we like to bring you a few more fun and frivolous stories on at this time of the week.
It is Friday after all!
Top Ten Similarities
1. When you draw breath at the end of it, you’re always willing to get back on top and give it another go.
2. Skiing burns more calories, but that depend on how adventurous you are in the bedroom. You could always combine them for the ultimate workout.
3. The longer you go without it, the lower your standards get. After months without satisfying your cravings, abstinence from either could be a ‘slippery slope’.
4. The beer and shower afterwards can be almost as good as the real thing. There’s nothing more satisfying than a cold beer and a refreshing shower after a long hard session.
5. You can go at it alone, but it’s much better together, or even in a group.
6. You’re never as good at it as you think you are.
7. After having children, you’re lucky if you mange it more than once a year.
8. Skiers like to go large, big slopes, big challenges, big brags, but with the 2.2m skis a thing of the past does size really matter?
9. A good wax job reduces friction and provides a much smoother ride. It’s all about the grip and the glide.
10. They say practice makes perfect, but nobody’s perfect so best to keep practicing.
Directski has a certain, er, direct style to its marketing. The online ski holiday specialist told us about sexy ski moments last season and annoyed Geordies with this campaign and possibly CrystalSKI with this one.
Directski.com claims to be continuously lowering its prices to make skiing affordable for all which means skiers really can do it more often.
Skiing that is.
Now while we are on the subject of sex one of our readers has just sent us a link to a picture gallery of the 30 hottest women in winter sports.
There are the obvious ones of Lindsey Vonn, Maria Reisch and Julia Mancuso. Chemmy Alcott makes the list as does another Brit.
So if you like pictures of women, some semi-naked, posing for the camera then see here!
We are currently trying to find a similar photo gallery for hunky male skiers and snowboarders, but no luck so far. Sorry ladies.
There are a couple of pictures of the male ski body in this PlanetSKI story.
For the spirit of the mountains
