About Dr Love




Keep in mind that romance and sexuality need to appeal to the senses so let that be your overall theme for the occasion.  Food is another very important area.  It's not just the fact that you might be eating a meal as part of the proceedings; it's the type of food and the way it's presented that will either enhance or detract from the atmosphere you've created.  Food is a very sensual feature of life and some foods are 'sexier' than others.  There's nothing very sexy about a cauliflower or a yam, but asparagus, strawberries and seafood are known aphrodisiacs.  It could be because we use our fingers to eat these foods and they're cool and delicious, or it could be because they're considered luxury foods that add to the specialness of the meal.  Fruit is also excellent, especially grapes, peaches and melon.  Chocolates are a delicious way to end the meal, especially if fed to each other.

My feeling about the food for a romantic meal is that it should be less, luscious, and luxurious.  If I were planning the food for a romantic occasion, I would not offer an entire meal, as who wants to make love on a full stomach?  I would have lots of little expensive nibbles rather than something you would eat normally, like steak or a casserole.  It's also much nicer if you eat informally.  A candlelit dinner at the table is wonderful but, for a change, why not help yourselves off a large server while reclining on a sofa, or on a rug in front of an open fire?

Some people like to eat in bed and others don't, but that would seem to be the next obvious destination for lovers, together with a fresh bottle of champagne and whatever food is left.  That's another good reason not to overeat — there's nothing more off-putting than a whole pile of dirty dishes and leftovers.

After all this, it would be difficult not to be relaxed and, if you're ready, you can move straight into love-making.  If not, there are still many ways to stay in foreplay mode.
