Eating food and having sex are undoubtedly two of the best things about being alive. As dining is already an integral part of dating, integrating food into your sex life is an easy peasy way to try new things in bed.
Some more extreme kinks involving food may seem pretty far out, but the connection between sex and food makes perfect sense. They’re both comforting activities often shared with those you love. Not to mention, sex is supposed to be messy.
For those of you who are intimidated, fear not: There are plenty of ways to incorporate food into your sex life that keep you within your comfort zone. Not convinced? I’ve rounded up some great foods to bring into the bedroom, along with beginner tips.
Try out Nyotaimori, the art of eating sushi off a naked body, at home. Order your favorite rolls, and then take turns arranging them on each other’s bodies and then eating them. Traditionally, a barrier such as bamboo leaves is between the sushi and the body, but if you’re going to place it directly on your partner’s skin, you might want to make sure they’re clean first.
Go old-school and preface your foreplay by challenging your partner to the classic kissing test: See who can tie a cherry stem in a knot with their tongue. Beyond that, cherries are a great addition to the bedroom. Run them over your partner’s body, or drizzle the juice over their erogenous zones and then lick it off.
I know: Popsicles look like penises. But since they’re made out of mostly frozen water and sugar, they’re not good to use for penetration, so don’t use them like this. Not only can the sugar in a popsicle throw off your partner’s pH balance and potentially cause yeast infections, but the popsicle itself might melt inside her orifices. That’s not so fun for a woman’s vagina, but it’s super fun (and delicious) for a mouth. Ask your lady to how off her blowjob skills by sucking and licking a popsicle as you watch, or sit across from each other and swap the icy treat back and forth between your mouths during a make out session. The frozen dessert is also an exciting way to introduce temperature play into your sex life; try running a popsicle over your partner’s nipples and then lick off the sweet residue.
Brie & crackers
If your taste buds prefer savory over sweet, brie can be used in the same manner as gooey chocolate syrup. Get messy by spreading the soft cheese over your lover’s nipples and licking it off while enjoying an entirely new flavor profile than the sugary treats traditionally used for food play. Not turned on by eating fancy French cheese off your partner’s body? Brie and crackers can also be served as the ultimate post-sex snack. A cheese plate in bed is pretty much the classiest and most delicious palate cleanser you can have after an oral sex marathon.
As part of breakfast in bed, after Sunday morning sex, add grapes to your partner’s plate of well-deserved delicacies, and feed them to her Cleopatra-style. She’ll feel worship worthy for sure. Before you get to the post-sex snacks, grapes can be used for temperature play while getting it on. Frozen grapes are delicious even without the love making, so imagine how delightful the fruit can be when orgasms are involved. Place a bundle of grapes in the freezer over night. When you’re ready for some icy hot foreplay, pluck a frozen grape from its stem and run it over your woman’s nipples and other erogenous zones.
If the infamous Varsity Blues whipped cream bikini scene didn’t convince you, whipped cream is a classic for a reason. It’s delicious and it has the perfect fluffy-yet-sticky consistency that helps it stay put on erogenous zones. Integrate the tasty treat into your foreplay by spraying it on your partner’s nipples and licking it off. You can also use it as the perfect segue way to oral sex by creating a line from your partner’s neck down to just barely above their genitals. Lick your way down, then proceed to eat her out. Be careful about getting the dessert inside the labia, as sugar can cause yeast infections.
