It’s that time of year when love is in the air. Chocolates, flowers, jewellery, expensive restaurants all feature on lists of how to demonstrate your love to your partner. It’s safe to say we’ve been there, done that and got the rather clichéd T-shirt.
Take eating out on Valentine’s Day. There’s something rather galling about paying over the odds to go to your favourite restaurant only to be surrounded by other couples trying to have a good time, desperately trying to resist the urge to check their phones, reply to that urgent email, call the childminder…the list is endless. There’s nothing sensual about that.
Although it’s true that the three key ingredients to having a happy Valentine’s Day. Food, love and sex play a huge part in stimulating our senses and they all give us great pleasure. So why not combine all three in a less traditional yet more exciting way?
Here at Ann Summers, we know a thing or two about feeding your desires. So, we’ve created a menu of our top ten list of seriously seductive foods which will leave you and your loved ones feeling satisfied in every sense of the word.
For many women, chocolate is better than sex. So why not combine the two? Chocolate sauce will always be considered a go-to option for an ultra-seductive night in between the sheets. The only rule? Be as creative as possible and squeeze anywhere you want. So, with that in mind, let the fun commence…
There are far more pleasurable ways to enjoy honey beyond pouring it over your granola or porridge. Time to get messy with the sweet stuff. And there’s no denying that honey ticks that box. Simply drizzle it all over each other and get creative…
Another classic, whipped cream is not only for sundaes. Simply licking it off each other should do the trick.
But if you really want to take things up a notch, squirt it over your partner’s erogenous zones.
A cherry on top is optional.
Not into sweet treats? Then savoury food can have just as much of an impact. Think Lady and The Tramp – it’s so iconic for a reason. Being face to face will always feel very intimate. And remember, there’s a guaranteed kiss for you both at the end. Who knows what that could lead to…
