It's common knowledge that food and sex go hand-in-hand, isn't it? We as humans have appetites for both. Eating for sensual purposes generally fall into one of two categories. The first category is foods that are thought to be aphrodisiacs. In the second category are foods that you might actually incorporate into your sexy time.
Can food be an aphrodisiac? A lovely meal in an enjoyable setting with some inspiring company can certainly put a person in the mood. Just don't let the meal be too heavy. Here, it is the experience, more than the food itself, which inspires romantic thoughts.
Some foods are rumored to have a more direct effect on the libido. Oysters and chocolate are two foods that top this list. There is evidence that certain nutritional qualities of these foods might have an impact. For instance, oysters contain zinc, which can have an impact on testosterone and sperm production. Chocolate contains compounds that affect the brain in positive ways. In general, it is no secret that a good, healthy diet leads to better overall health. Better health tends to equate with better sex.
Let's turn to the use of food during sex. Not only does eating chocolate make you feel good, it can be fun. A very soft milk chocolate bar can be used on one's partner and followed up with a tongue. Chocolate syrup also works, but can be overly sweet and large amounts. I highly recommend whipped cream. The kind in the spray can has the positive quality of being easily aimed and can even be applied in patterns. It is also rather light so an overabundance isn't usually a problem. Fruit makes a lovely body decoration to be nibbled off and I'm sure you can think of something to do with bananas or carrots…or even cucumbers!
There are even BDSM aspects to the utilization of food during sex. Figging would fall into this category. This involves the use of the ginger root. Fresh ginger root is peeled and then pared into the desired shape. When inserted, the ginger produces a subtle burning sensation that grows over time. This practice is often accompanied by a spanking or caning.
There is really no limit to how to use food during sex, except the limits of your own imagination.
Have you ever incorporated food into your sex life? What foods arouse you?
For your reading pleasure today, I'm including an excerpt from my most recent release - The ABCs of Erotica - G is for Gigolo. I have incorporated food into this book. Our couple has a nice dinner to relax and get to know each other. They also enjoy a little fruit and wine…later.
The ABCs of Erotica — G is for Gigolo
Candace travels the world and happens to be stopping over in L.A. with one thing on her mind: red hot sex with no strings attached! After losing her husband, this sultry seductress is finally discovering herself. Widowed but wise, and ready for action, Candace knows what she needs and she will take it right now. The old boundaries from her marriage no longer hold her back.
Gavin is a gigolo. Sex with women like Candace is his job. Gavin is about to accompany Candace on a journey down an erotic path she never would have dreamed of.
"This…situation is rather new to me. I haven't done this."
"Don't be nervous. You're the boss. You are in charge. Let me know what you want. What you need."
Candace sighed. "That would be so much easier to do if I knew…what I wanted." Her voice contained frustration.
Gavin reached out with his finger and lightly caressed her cheekbone. "Don't worry. We'll figure it out together." He leaned in toward her and pressed his lips to hers in a gentle kiss.
Candace almost moaned. It had been so long since she had felt an intimate touch. "I wouldn't mind some more of that."
"As you wish." He shifted his body closer to hers, heating her skin. He took her lips in a kiss that was both tender and thorough.
Candace pulled back and looked into his eyes. All she saw was honest need. She wanted more. She wanted him to touch her. Candace unbuttoned her blouse, slowly, one button at a time. Gavin's eyes were riveted on her as she exposed creamy skin and a lacy, flesh-colored bra. She pulled her blouse from her skirt and dropped it on the couch. After slipping the straps of the bra off her shoulders, she reached behind and unhooked the bra. The lingerie fell from her body onto the floor.
