Has your sex life turned into regular routine? Whether you are single or in a relationship, here are some creative ideas to spice up the romance and amp up your sensuality. Of course, I recommend supporting local businesses by purchasing the items below at your local organic grocer or farmers’ market.
Here are some natural aphrodisiacs and sexy suggestions to in-JOY with your date, lover, and/or partner:
1. Seasonal berries
Select a variety of juicy, ripe, local berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries…). Blindfold your lover and plop them into a waiting mouth one at a time. Have your lover guess what type of berry you are feeding them. Take turns. Savor the juices, feel the berries in the midst of a sensuous long kiss. For a bit more playful and mischievous fun, smash them on each other and take pictures of these juicy designs before biting and licking them off each other.
2. Melted, vegan, organic chocolate
Step 1: Heat up rich, dark chocolate on the stove (make sure you wear a sexy, little apron with nothing on underneath while you stir and heat up the chocolate). Step 2: Place a cup full of this luxurious melted deliciousness next to the bed. Step 3: Use your fingers to write something erotic on your lover’s skin, then erase it with your tongue. Nothing’s better than dipping fruit or fingers into thick, warm chocolate and having a sensuous tongue lap it up. Chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine (PEA), which stimulates the production of endorphins (the feel good hormones) and increases dopamine levels, which are associated with pleasure and arousal. Many scientists believe that PEA is the chemical our body naturally produces when we are falling in love (or lust). Edibly erotic!
Hopefully, on your trip to the farmers’ market you have loaded up on sexy, succulent, fruits and vegetables and you’ve remembered some avocados. This smooth, silky, vitamin E filled, emollient, is perfect for rubbing body parts, boosting arousal, and adding intensity for a slippery edible adventure. After rinsing off, you will both notice how moist and sexy your skin feels. For dessert, make vegan chocolate pudding with avocados, full fat coconut milk and cacao powder (with optional maple syrup and vanilla extract). Slowly and sensuously feed this creamy pudding to each other to replenish your energy.
Buy it organic and from the bulk bins. This surprisingly sexy ingredient feels like liquid silk. On a hot day, lay a sheet over the bed and start by massaging your lover’s back with this smooth, sleek powder; gradually work into a fully body massage, making sure to not to miss any special parts. When things start to heat up. Let the pleasures flow.
5. Homemade granola
After your erotic adventures, you both may be ready for something a bit more hearty yet not too heavy. Spend an evening at home making some organic, vegan granola together. Granola, made with organic oats and grains, is rich in magnesium and other healthy vitamins and minerals. Make sure to add your favorite toppings like seeds, nuts, bananas, berries and/or dates. Aim and toss it into each other’s mouth; whoever catches the most gets a sexual fantasy fulfilled by the other.
6. Sensual Aromatherapy Oils
Most agree that the top four sexiest natural scents are citrus, cinnamon, ylang ylang and vanilla. Mix all four together and make your lover go wild with desire. You can also ask your lover what their favorite fragrances are and then go to your local, natural foods store and match some essential oils to it. Dab (just enough, don’t overdo) your most erotic places before each date and become irresistible.
7. Remember your bedroom!
Create the mood by burning eco-friendly candles, saving electricity. Bee’s wax candles are the best as they burn clean and smell delicious. Choose a natural lubricant and avoid petroleum-based and artificially flavored products. Pure, organic, virgin coconut oil is amazing and edible. Most conventional condoms are made with casein, a dairy derived ingredient that a vegan woman would not want in her vagina! Check out the first ethical, fair trade condom company GLYDE (certified vegan for over 20 years), which even uses recycled paperboard and vegetable inks in their packaging. Go for eco-friendly, sexy lingerie from GreenKnickers and Wear PACT for women, and for men try Red Dog or Cottonfield.
