Making time for Simple Sexy Food™

In our ridiculously fast-paced, hectic lives filled with fast food and occasional, perfunctory rolls in the hay, many couples find their bodies expanding, energy sagging, and their sex lives languishing. The antidote: Try a Simple Sexy Food™ approach to preparing and sharing a meal. Slow down to make better, sexier food choices. As you savor them, connect with your lover. Appreciate the fragrance of his skin, the curve of her hips, the beauty of your lover’s smile.

This pleasure-focused approach to food and your bodies goes beyond oysters and chocolate to include a full eighty-eight foods, herbs, and spices with intriguing, fun aphrodisiac reputations, AND sexy nutrients that support those reputations! In Simple Sexy Food™, you’ll learn about scientific research that shows the power of pumpkin pie spice scent to get a man’s blood flowing, or the lore revealing Catherine de’Medici’s passion for artichokes that created scandal in 16th century Europe.

Also uncovered are the results of my 21st Century aphrodisiac survey findings showing that 50% of personal favorites are finger foods, from chocolate-covered strawberries, to sushi, to grapes. As for drinks, champagne tops the list, followed by red are a few tips and suggestions to rev your libido with simple, sexy foods:

1. Schedule a date night that includes simple sexy food. One Spanish couple had a weekly tapas night, a small-bites meal with wine; it always inspired the sexual activity that followed.

2. Another couple loved lazy Sunday mornings filled with the aromas of freshly baked pumpkin bread (Simple Sexy Food™ offers recipes for pumpkin-Coconut Bread and Pumpkin Pancakes) and their favorite coffee, or on special occasions, a mimosa (mix of orange juice and champagne). They ate this breakfast in bed, and were inspired to remain there for an hour or so longer.

3. Co-prepare a meal to ease the workload and, if a dish calls for a 30 minute simmer or time in the oven, take advantage! “Intermezzo moments” involving flirting and kissing, caressing and fondling will whet appetites of all sorts!

4. Develop a sexy food mind-set. When preparing an otherwise ordinary meal, think about how to create a sensual context in which to enjoy it. Wear a sexy apron or lingerie while cooking; dim the lights or set out candles; set a table on the balcony or in the back yard, gather some flowers from the garden; suggestively arrange food on a platter.

5. Take advantage of unexpected moments for a sexy food exchange: spontaneously flirt with your lover, telling him or her you feel like feeding them, and pop something in their mouth, maintaining a sexy gaze.

6. If you love the idea of sharing sexy mealtime moments in theory, but find it tough to pull off in practice because of kids, enlist grandparents to enjoy them for an evening or a weekend, or regularly trade sleepovers with another couple.

7. Don’t forget! Put your relationship first! Cut off all electronic devices (that includes the television)! The world will still be there when you reconnect!
