Smell and taste
Let’s assume you have had some experience in the bedroom. You mastered the technicalities of sex and have lived to tell the tale. You may even have experienced encounters where foreplay has actually been the main event and sex felt like a minor side-kick to the whole procedure. Most of you, however, will probably have focused on the sense of touch. Of course, the eyes play a role when picking your partner, but once things get a little more juicy, touch plays a much more prominent role in your encounters. Some may get vocal, but sound is not usually a big thing except for crucial moments of ecstasy and the climax.
May I suggest a little extra? Have you ever thought of incorporating smell and taste into your foreplay routine? I’m not talking taking your partner out to dinner before making your move: I’m thinking of actually making use of the taste of taste/smell DURING your encounter.
You may wonder how you can do this, and you’ll be surprised that smell plays a crucial role from the first moment you encounter someone: there is good reason to suspect that we are much more driven by the effect of pheromones than we are aware of. But this is about experimentation with things that your partner can smell or taste as a surprise element that can heighten the excitement quite a lot.
It takes a bit of preparation, though. Not every food or smell are readily at hand in the bedroom and most need a level of preparation: it’s not particularly sexy having to wait for someone to cut those oranges or go and fetch the strawberries. Ice cubes have a nasty tendency to melt while waiting to be used, and you don’t want to spoil the surprise by having everything sitting right next to the bed either. Some smells need to be hidden by using the right containers, too. However, it’s certainly worth the effort, especially if your partner is of the playful sort. Remember, food can be shared, too!
A word of caution: be aware of food allergies and your partner’s preferences: you may be a fan of mango, your partner may not be! In the end, this is for your partner’s benefit, and whatever you choose, make sure it is pleasant for the both of you…
smell and taste are the twin brothers of vision, hearing and touch!
