Sexy Food Play

Food and sex go together a lot better than you may think. It’s not about rolling around with abandon in a tub of whipped cream (although that might be interesting). Just think about that good old movie classic, 9 ½ Weeks. If any of you young’uns don’t remember it check it out on Netflix. Good sex scenes never go out of style. Anyway, there is a fabulous scene in the movie where food is used in a very sexy and playful manner. So, in homage to Kim Basinger writhing around in honey and Mickey Rourke pre-plastic surgery, dive into these general rules when it comes to food sex play.

Hot to Trot
Stay away from anything too spicy or with peppers in it, as mucous membranes like the vagina, can be highly sensitive.

Is that a banana in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
Discuss with your partner what foods he/she finds sexy. You may get some surprising answers for food you never would have thought to incorporate into sex. Rutabaga, anyone?

Sexy Playground
The best places to experiment with a little food play are your kitchen floor, your bed with towels or plastic spread out, the shower/tub or if you can get the privacy – your backyard. Clean up should be a snap in any of these areas.Sexy Food PlayAvoid That Nasty Rash
You and your partner should also discuss food allergies and stay away from those foods that might cause agitation (nuts, citric fruits etc.). You don’t need to end your evening with a trip to the ER.

Don’t Lose It
Be sure that if you are using smaller foods such as cherries or strawberries that you are careful with insertion. You want to be sure you can retrieve them. Again, no fun to have some medical professional rooting around in your nether regions.

Your Body is a Wonderland
Take turns so that both of you can explore one another’s body with the food. Focus on all of those nooks and crannies where your hands or mouth can help you discover sensations you never dreamed of before.
