Have you ever been ready to start your engines, and suddenly interrupted by a rumble in your belly? You are not alone. Planning the perfect snack for your date night is an art and a science, and it can go a long way in making the night much more exhilarating. Eating the right food before and after sex is not just about setting the mood; certain foods can make both sex and the afterglow better!
1. Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate
Chocolate means that love is in the air. Whether it is Valentine’s Day, or simply Treat Yourself Day; chocolate is downright sweet and romantic; with a sultry side to it as well. Chocolate (dark chocolate in particular) is known to get you in the mood, making it the ideal way to get you started alongside a little seductive foreplay. A little chocolate makes for a perfect transition to some delicious bedroom fun with #LubeLife Mint Chocolate Chip Lube.
If you think that chocolate is just for before sex, think again! Chocolate can also have calming effects, allowing you to relax and bask in the afterglow of your glorious time together. Make sure to keep a stash nearby for an easy and delightful post-sex snack!
2. Seafood Is Sex Food
Seafood is light and luxurious - exactly what you want for that special date night! It does an excellent job of setting the mood and makes a delightful way to relax and rejuvenate after your between-the-sheets workout. The minerals found in seafood boosts sex drive and the high protein content gives you that energy boost perfect for round two. You can't go wrong with seafood!
If you are not into sushi, there is no need to worry! Other kinds of seafood are just as sexy. Feel free to try salmon, tuna, oysters, or crab; they all provide the same added benefits!
3. Salad, Anyone?
Salad, like seafood, gives off fancy and romantic vibes. A properly arranged and dressed salad is an easy way to impress your partner. While the salad might be the only thing not getting undressed this evening, starting your romantic meal with a sumptuous appetizer is always a good move. If you want to impress a certain someone with your cooking skills before you have blown their mind with your bedroom skills, this is the way to go. We recommend preparing the ingredients ahead of time and then pulling them out of the fridge when the timing is right.
While there are many types of salads you can make, avoid the cumbersome options and keep them light. First, start with a base. Both arugula and spinach are known to increase sex drive and happy hormones. Gourmet salad toppings that double as aphrodisiacs include:
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Pumpkin seeds
- Basil leaves
Add your favorites to the mix and start your love-making off with a healthy twist. Finish the greens with a sultry Italian dressing; giving your dining experience a crunchy and refreshing bite, with a sweet and seductive finish.
4. Go Fruity for Some Booty
When it comes to fruit, the possibilities are endless. Full of vitamins and healthy sugars, most fruits will give you a bombastic boost in the bedroom.
- Bananas are high in potassium, which serve to both calm nerves and increase desire.
- Apples and figs provide a sweet crunch that helps boost your mood
- Strawberries and watermelon are refreshing and hydrating to heighten your sense of what’s to come
The last two fruits on the list are some of the most popular and are an excellent follow-up to any sexy activities in which Strawberry Lube or Watermelon Lube have been put to use. One romantic idea is to serve chocolate-covered strawberries for a light snack either after sex or as an incentive to begin round two! Remember that citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits freshen you up and give you a quick sugar rush to kick-start the action! When you are looking for a pre-session snack, don’t forget about these fruits to sweeten up the occasion.
5. Just a Drink, Please
You have time for just a quick sip of something before going back at it! Food is not the only thing to make your sex and post-sex better. There are plenty of drinks to keep up the mood. For a simple yet effective drink, lemon water is a great go-to. It is refreshing and invigorating and also tends to calm your nerves after an exciting night! If you want to take things a step further, upgrade your lemon water to ginger-lemon water for an extra buzz before or after sex.
No discussion of sex-friendly drinks would be complete without mentioning a glass of wine. You have to be careful here because you do not want the buzz of the wine to drown out the buzz your sexy partner gives you. However, a glass or two of wine can increase sexual desire and pleasure if taken before sex or can add immensely to the sense of celebration afterward! Plus, sharing a glass of wine is intrinsically romantic.
6. Spice It Up
Last but not least, it is time to turn up the heat. Everyone wants to spice things up in the bedroom, but have you ever considered taking that phrase literally? Spicy foods are well known to increase libido in men and women. You’ve been warned, your special time might end up being louder and crazier than ever before! Foods that get your blood flowing and your body tingling contain:
- Chili peppers
If you have your spicy snack before sex, just make sure to bring a mint! As you don’t want any extra tang in between your pillow talk!
Which snack idea is your favorite? Which one are you a little bit suspicious of? Consider this a dare to try something new next time you are planning a romantic evening with your partner! It is time to bring the spice back into sex and don’t forget the #LubeLife.
