Whether single or in a relationship, we can always bring more sensuality into our lives while keeping it vegan!
I recommend supporting local businesses by purchasing the items below at your nearest earth-friendly co-op or green grocer. Buy organic and GMO-free when you can. Remember, it’s all about the allure of caring for the planet and each other.
Here are some natural aphrodisiacs and sexy suggestions to enjoy with your date, lover or partner:
· Seasonal berries – Pick juicy, ripe, local berries and get a nice variety (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries). Blindfold your lover and then plop them into a waiting mouth one at a time. Savor the juices, feel the berries in the midst of a sensuous long kiss. Have your lover guess what type of berry you are feeding them. If you are feeling very berry-licious and a bit mischievous, smash them on each other and take pictures of these juicy designs before biting and licking them off each other.
· Melted, vegan, organic chocolate – Step 1: Heat up some rich, dark chocolate on the stove (make sure you wear a sexy, little apron with nothing on underneath while you stir and heat up the chocolate). Step 2: Place a cup full of this luxurious melted deliciousness next to the bed. Step 3: Use your fingers to write something erotic on your lover’s skin, then erase it with your tongue. Nothing’s better than dipping fruit or fingers into thick, warm chocolate and having a sensuous tongue lap it up. Chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine (PEA), the same “loving” chemical that our body naturally produces during the first moments of falling in love (or lust). Edibly erotic!
· Avocadoes – Hopefully, on your trip to the farmers’ market you have loaded up on sexy, succulent, fruits and vegetables and you haven’t forgotten a few avocadoes. Yes! This smooth, silky, vitamin E filled, emollient, is perfect for rubbing body parts, boosting arousal, and adding intensity, for a slippery edible adventure. After rinsing off, you will both notice how moist and sexy your skin feels. For dessert, make vegan chocolate pudding with avocados, full fat coconut milk and cacao powder (and optional maple syrup and vanilla extract). Sensuously feed this creamy pudding to each other to replenish your energy.
· Cornstarch – Buy it organic and from the bulk bins. This surprisingly sexy ingredient feels like liquid silk. On a hot day, lay a sheet over the bed and start by massaging your lover’s back with this smooth, sleek powder. Gradually work into a fully body massage, making sure to not to miss any special parts. When things start to heat up. Let the pleasures flow.
· Homemade granola – After your erotic adventures, you both may be ready for something a bit more hearty but not too heavy. Try some organic homemade vegan granola, or make it together. Granola, made with organic oats and grains, is rich in magnesium and other healthy vitamins and minerals. Add some seeds, nuts, and dried fruits. Aim and toss it into each others’ mouths; whoever catches the most gets a fantasy fulfilled by the other.
· Tomatoes – Red, succulent, and juicy! Often coined as “the apple of love,” one juicy bite and you’ll see why. Buy these vine ripened at your next farmers’ market. Bring a basket made by your local tribe and shop together. Feed it to your lover and see how this erotic fruit really heats things up. The slurp alone can get you hungry for more. Make sure you have a nice, soft, organic, cloth napkin on hand to continue this erotic pampering.
· Sensual Aromatherapy Oils – The top three sexiest smells are citrus, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix all three together and make your lover go wild with desire. You can also ask your lover what their favorite smell is and then go to your local, healthy living store and match some essential oils to it. Douse yourself with it in the most erotic places before each date and become irresistible.
· Don’t forget to green your bedroom! Create the mood by burning eco-friendly candles, saving electricity. Bee’s wax candles are the best as they burn clean and smell delicious. Choose a natural lubricant and avoid petroleum-based and artificially flavored products. Pure, organic, virgin coconut oil is perfect. You can purchase condoms that support sustainable use of the Amazon rainforest called Natex. Go for eco-friendly super sexy lingerie from GreenKnickers and People Tree for women, and for men try Red Dog or Cottonfield.
