If you’re planning a hot night with your paramour you may want to reconsider the foods you eat. I know it sounds kind of silly to point this out, because the foundation of a fun date always involves some sort of eating (be it food or sexy bits…), however sometimes we choose foods too hastily. Eating certain foods is guaranteed to get your juices flowing, nevertheless many have a reputation of leaving a lasting impression on you and your partner—and I’m not talking about the good kind of impression.
A few meals stick out in my mind as HUGE “no-nos.” I honestly wish I had discovered these avoidable foods without having to do the field research myself. Many of my favorite foods are on the list, and if I know my night will turn grabby I will try my hardest to make wise choices before going head first into a serving.
FOODS TO, NO MATTER WHAT, AVOID AT ALL COSTS:
While many people would say avoid the obvious offenders of fish and asparagus, I would like to also pass the blame onto curry, garlic, and cheese. These foods are all “toxic” smell generators. They make our foods so much tastier and flavorful; however they also make our tummies not the happiest. One time I felt like eating my weight in Fuel City tacos, after allowing them time to digest and finding myself incredibly bored with our movie choices, I created a fun distraction by jumping the guy I was dating at the time. After we finished we both noticed that our favorite tiny tacos left a pungent smell in the air. The smell was so overwhelming that we could barely remain sitting in the room, let alone even considering going at it again. Thankfully we could both laugh about it later, but it still makes me incredibly weary about eating any Spanish or Mexican food on a date. I like fish tacos, but I don’t like the room to smell the same way.
FOODS, WHEN AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF TIME HAS PASSED, THAT WON’T DISGUST YOU OR YOUR PARTNER:
A few offensive foods, such as seafood, aren’t so bad a few hours after you’ve eaten them. Meaning you could still bump uglies without passing out from poisonous gases or suffering from a case of rumbly tummy. I remember the first time I realized eating sushi for dinner was a horrible idea. I love sushi but I do not love the smell that comes out of me after spicy tuna mixes with my own natural musk. My ex and I had to change our sheets after we both got so overwhelmed by the smells. Thankfully a few sushi meals later I realized that if we chose to refrain from sex five hours or more before sex the smell would clear itself up naturally and it would never be anywhere near as overwhelming as the first time.
SAFE AND ENCOURAGED FOODS:
If you are trying to eat foods that will attract your guy or girl to you, I have a few suggestions. Unless you are allergic, pineapple, apples, oranges, and bananas are your friends. These fruits are not only healthy and full of fiber, they more importantly dispense a wonderfully sweet flavor on your body. Just like you can taste the alcohol or fish on your lover’s naughty bits, you can taste the sweetness there too. They mingle with your natural scent and draw your lover to you more effectively than you’d imagine. Pineapple will also help “clean out” any foul smells from previous meals. For example, if you plan to eat sushi for dinner, try drinking a cup of pineapple juice before sex time, it truly helps cut the musty smell. Eating ripe fruits was definitely a welcome addition to my pre-sex routine, and I hope the same for you.
