Sat­isfy Your Sex­ual Hunger

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE - By tay­lor an­drews

Splosh­ing: sounds kinda gross, but it can ac­tu­ally be re­ally sexy. It’s the act of play­ing with food to arouse your (and your part­ner’s) car­nal ap­petite. But be­fore you start haul­ing gro­ceries into bed, know that only cer­tain types of food are plea­sure-in­duc­ing. Oth­ers are just a straight-up mess – or even haz­ardous. Then there’s the golden rule of frisky food play: safe sus­te­nance can go all over the body but al­most never in­side the vagina, where it could cause in­fec­tion, says gy­nae­col­o­gist Alyssa Dweck, coau­thor of The Com­plete A To Z For Your V. Fol­low this guide to naughty nib­bles.

Eff Yes! Cho­co­late sauce

A driz­zle makes naked skin taste sin­ful, and it con­tains phenylethy­lamine, a com­pound that’s linked to dopamine, which is a chem­i­cal your brain re­leases when you’re in love. Have your part­ner spread some on your breasts and lap it up, sug­gests sex­ol­o­gist Su­san Block.

Pineapple

Eat­ing the tart trop­i­cal fruit sev­eral hours be­fore sex can sweeten the taste of your (and bae’s) sex­ual flu­ids, says Block. And shar­ing a piece dur­ing a morn­ing make-out can mask any less-arous­ing flavours.

Ice lol­lies

Oh, look: your own melty phal­lus! Drive bae crazy by teas­ing what’s to come. Suck on the icy stick, then rub the tip against your nip­ples, stim­u­lat­ing your own plea­sure. Trail the cold lolly along his pe­nis be­fore tak­ing him in your mouth. The quick tem­per­a­ture shift can push his cli­max to new heights.

Av­o­cado

‘It is full of vi­ta­mins E and B, which can in­crease your en­ergy later,’ says sex and re­la­tion­ship ther­a­pist Megan Flem­ing. (So, ideal for round two!) Place a slice on your lips, neck, col­lar­bone, breasts and in­ner thighs, and ask your mate to eat up while go­ing down.

Co­conut oil

The slip­pery stuff has a con­sis­tency sim­i­lar to vagi­nal fluid, so it can act as a nat­u­ral lu­bri­cant. Slather some on his shaft and stroke him with your hand. (Pe­nis co­lada, any­one?) If a lit­tle gets in­side you, that’s okay: co­conut oil may be the one food that doesn’t wreak vag havoc, says Dweck. Just don’t use it with a la­tex con­dom, which could break.

Hell, No! Grape­fruit

The grape­fruit BJ – im­mor­talised by Tif­fany Had­dish’s char­ac­ter in Girls Trip – in­volves cut­ting a hole in the cit­rus fruit, then slid­ing it (along with your mouth) up and down his pe­nis. The tech­nique went vi­ral on­line, but IRL it’s not so hot. The juices can cause a painful burn­ing sen­sa­tion in a guy’s ure­thra. ‘Steer clear,’ says Dweck.

Veg­gies

Al­though cu­cum­bers and car­rots may seem like cheap sex-toy al­ter­na­tives, never rub them around or in­side your vagina. There’s likely bac­te­ria on the sur­face that can cause an in­fec­tion. ‘There are enough amaz­ing vi­bra­tors avail­able that you shouldn’t need a veg­etable,’ says Dweck.

Cin­na­mon

The spice is a des­ic­cant, which means it dries tis­sue quickly. If it gets on your vulva or in your V, it could cause ir­ri­ta­tion or in­flam­ma­tion. Keep it away from your guy’s ure­thra too: ‘Putting cin­na­mon in any ori­fice other than the mouth is not ad­vised,’ says Dweck.

Hot sauce

Be like Bey and keep some in your bag – but make sure it stays there. Spicy chilli sauce can burn skin and cause very un­pleas­ant in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal ir­ri­ta­tion for both of you. It’s an ab­so­lute no-no in the bed­room. ■
