Looking to get hot and heavy with someone special this weekend? If the wackiest new sex trend has any merit, your first step should actually involve lowering the temperature – down there.

Love-hungry Brits are freezing their penises through a treatment called “Love Mist”, which involves blasting your genitals with negative 256-degree Fahrenheit liquid nitrogen vapor.

The bizarre treatment, made famous by the Ainscow Spa in Manchester, England, is said to cause your blood vessels to undergo “vasoconstriction”, which happens when the sudden cold front on your junk triggers your temperature receptors.

“This produces a quicker blood flow and ramps up endorphin levels, generating a natural high,” claim spa staff.

The procedure is also said to enhance the overall appearance of your package.  

“While the skin continues to feel the ‘freeze,’ the body sends signals back and forth to the brain,” say staff.

“These messengers tell the brain if there is damage to the tissues, to repair them. [This] generates a tighter, youthful, clear, and vibrant genital skin appearance through boosting collagen.”

If for some reason any of this sounds appealing to you but you aren’t in the Manchester area and/or don’t feel like shelling out close to $100 to have your junk subjected to sub-zero temps, perhaps start by introducing it to a tub of ice cream (or don't.)
