Ooh yeah baby. Sexy time in the hot tub. Not really. We just had a long hot soak and looked at the stars and the snow on the trees and roof tops around us. It was very relaxing. No you don't feel the cold while you're in a 40 degree C hot tub. Even when you first get out you don't notice the cold for a few minutes. Plenty of time to towel off and get inside.
