Perhaps the best foreplay ideas come from a couple’s shared vision of what they both want from their sexual intimacy. Do you communicate your ideas and fantasies to each other? Do you agree to try things you haven’t tried before, changing things up to see where it leads you? Do you engage all of your senses?
While many couples get turned on by going from 0 to 60 quickly, others find that satisfying foreplay ideas involve taking time to set the mood.
Who hasn’t enjoyed a luxurious soak in a candlelit tub with your lover? Or slipped some mood music into your sound system? Or explored your environment for items and locations that might bring some unexpected mojo to your intercourse?
You want your senses firing on all cylinders as you move towards moments of intimacy; touch and sight probably come to mind first. But don’t underestimate the power of taste and smell, too. Our sense of smell is responsible for about 80% of what we taste. Without smell, our sense of taste is limited to sweet, salty, sour, bitter and savory. Your sense of smell guides you, comforts you and even alerts you to danger or – as you probably well know – is part of the complex set of variables that let you know you’re attracted to another person.
One way to capitalize on this power is to surround yourselves with aromas that resonate with you. This could be as simple as applying perfume or aftershave, or permeating the air with essential oils or candles. But think about the benefits of combining these two powerful triggers – smell and taste – to go along with touch, sight and sound.
Lubricate your lover’s body with a scented massage oil that appeals to you – even better if it’s edible. Then you can create an intoxicating mélange of sight, smell, taste and touch.
Or take your foreplay ideas a step further by investing in edible candles you can use to stimulate your lover’s skin.
Smell is a powerful thing, with proven links to memory and emotions. Combine that with taste and you can knock your sexual senses right out of the park!
