Happy Valentine's Day, my fellow Healthkickers!
I love finding new ways to spice up sex, and one of my favorite spice-up-your-life techniques is through bringing food into the bedroom. And while many people like to bring in sugary whipped cream and calorie-ridden chocolate syrup, I've opted to look into healthier, but still insanely sexy, foods to bring into the bedroom.
Fruit: Any kind of juicy, succulent fruit will do. Most people will head towards the typical fruits, like strawberries or grapes. Instead, pick up a really juicy fruit, like a watermelon slice or peach, and bring it to bed. To spice up the sex, squeeze the fruit on each other and lick the juice off. You can even bring an orange to bed and peel it with each other and feed the slices to each other... HOT HOT HOT.
Breath mints: Breath mints not only provide fresh breath, but they also can be really sexy. Pop a mint before you jump into bed, and then lick your partner's neck and chest, following the lick with a soft blow of your breath. The mint will provide a cooling effect and will totally turn your partner on. (And duh! Breath mints are really low-calorie and many of them are sugar-free.)
Popsicles: Even though Valentine's Day comes with notoriously cold weather, popsicles can be really hot in the bedroom. Cold, phallic and sweet, popsicles can be rubbed on each other's bodies or can just be used as to tease your man (or woman!) with. Many popsicles also contain real fruit, so you'll be getting some of your fruit and veggie servings in bed!
Champagne: If you're old enough to drink and you don't mind a little mess, take some champagne and pour drops of it onto your SO, using your tongue to chase the drops. Not only will you hydrate a little and possibly even get a buzz, you're also taking an already romantic element and turning up the heat with it. And bonus! - champagne is generally low in calories and carbs, so you don't have to worry about the nutrition!
Honey: Try squeezing this sweet treat into your lover's mouth for a quick sugar high. While honey does usually bring along a good dose of sugar, it's unprocessed, all-natural sugar -- which is far better than any kind of processed nonsense you may find in whipped cream or other syrups. If you want to get a little sticky, try squeezing small drops of honey onto your lover and remove it by sucking the honey off; try sensual areas like the neck, nipple or inner thigh to get them super aroused.
Do you use food in the bedroom? Are you health-conscious about the foods that you bring to bed? What's your favorite way to spice up your sex life?
