Combining Sex and Food During Foreplay
Keeping you up to date on the latest coital and culinary trends, we’ve recently revealed foods to avoid before having sex, but to balance the yin with the yang, it’s time to explore the other side of the sexual spectrum.
So next time you’re in the kitchen looking through your metaphorical spice cabinet, try reaching for one of these five frisky foreplay-enhancing foods.
Cliché with good reason, whipped cream is ideal for its sweet taste, easy application and seductive, signature sound. Simply apply the whipped cream to any part of your lover’s body, and enjoy the removal process with the assurance that it won’t melt.
Packed with as much protein as possibilities, peanut butter can be playfully scooped and sensually applied with the finessed flick of a finger. After application, near your finger to your partner’s lips, encouraging them to taste you before you taste them. Unlike its jellied companion, peanut butter won’t run as your bodies move.
When it comes to frozen treats, keep the gelato and popsicles on ice. If you’re looking to get icy and spicy, stick to plain-water cubed ice—they won’t leave your skin sticky or mess up those sheets. In addition, the cold sensation of ice followed by the warmth of your mouth will send shivers up their spine.
Synonymously sweet and easy to sprinkle, a light lick of your partner’s skin proves to be the perfect adhesive for a few sugar crystals. Optimal bodily areas to (lightly) dust with sugar include your lover’s neck, the inside of the thighs and around the breasts. Don’t go overboard though, as doing so could lead to a grainy ‘sandy sheets’ feeling.
We all remember our teenage days of playing “pass the ice cube” whilst kissing. Recapturing the playfulness of this game in adulthood, we recommend using fruit—especially cherries, grapes and strawberries. Start with a piece of fruit in your mouth and passionately pass it to your partner, savoring both the taste and the experience.
The rule of thumb for bringing food and beverage into the bedroom is to avoid sticky situations and keep it clean and sweet. But remember, while some foods have playful properties, others have very real libido boosting powers.
