Sweets Can Sweeten

Monday, October 15th, 2012

In this day and age of being healthier and watching our waistlines and yes, trying to live up to societal standards of beauty, we often lose sight of something: dessert. Which is a shame because, you know what? Aside from tasting really good, dessert can be playful and sexy and fun. There’s a reason the old-fashioned image is of two teenagers sharing one chocolate malt from two straws. These days, it’s more likely to be one crème brulee and two forks, but the idea is the same.


Psychologically, we often experience a sense of freedom, of relaxation, when we allow ourselves dessert – and this relaxation can translate into the relationship. Physically, the act of sharing something brings us closer generic cialis online. Hands brush. Foreheads touch. Eyes lock. We are aware of each other in important ways. And, let’s be honest, sauces can be fun. While I only recommend enjoying those to the fullest in private, in public, we can easily get away with licking a spoon, flicking our tongues over our lips, or feeding a bite to our partner. Do that staring into each other’s eyes, with wicked smiles, and you’ll be calling for the check fast enough.
