See if there is a relationship between sex and food that it is almost impossible to opt for one of the options, giving up the other.
Or, at least, that is what they have found out from LELO -the brand of erotic luxury toys-, with their latest study where they asked to choose and, as a result, 56% of those surveyed stated that they chose carnal pleasure before food.
Food and sex are connected to the point that “What is a kiss if not tasting your partner ?” reflects the sexologist and writer Valérie Tasso at the event organized this Thursday by the Swedish company in Ditaly.
«The function of the kiss is to see if we are going to like the other person, to see if we will be sexually compatible. It has a lot of sexual cannibalism,” says the expert.
In fact, that gluttony can also be taken to bed is something that is demonstrated by another of the results of the study that the sexologist explains to us.
27% of people between 35 and 46 years old fantasize about food and sex, which has its own name: sploshing.
This erotic practice, which consists of stimulation through food, ranges from the universal game of spreading some cream or ice cream on some part of the body, to harder versions involving seas of spaghetti covered in tomato sauce.
A real feast.
It is also another of the things that a sexual encounter or a meal share, with the quality of the raw material – that is, having good ingredients – little else is needed.
The fact that, according to the study, 91% of Spaniards do not know sploshing, even though they have put it into practice without knowing it, makes it clear that a series of basics must be reviewed in order to be able to practice it safely.
Safety recommendations for sploshing
For now, all that is spicy food -especially sauces- should be off the menu of the sexual encounter.
The mucous membranes, already sensitive, can be affected to the point of completely loading the vaginal or anal intimate flora.
If we want to spread or choose food to distribute throughout the body, it is recommended to do so only for external use.
Although, as Valérie reminds me, in BDSM contexts there are people who seek pleasure in pain, to avoid affecting their health, it is better to avoid introducing food through the urethra or other orifices.
Another example that has become very popular is ginger, whose itching effect seems to give any practice a plus, but, however natural it may be, it is better to use it only in areas such as “the nipples”, advises the sexologist.
(Also, you can always recycle the root later to make yourself an infusion.)
Subsequent hygiene is essential to prevent remains from entering where they should not – and could lead to an infection -.
And another safety recommendation that the expert points out is to pay special attention to the containers that are used to hold food.
In the heat of passion, it is better to leave everything that is made of glass away from the area of action and opt for plastic plates or dishes (or other flexible materials that do not run the risk of fracturing).
Once you have these clear recommendations -and that’s it- it’s time to take action. Plan the meeting in advance, get organized to buy everything you need (cream, syrup, ice cream, yogurt…) and enjoy.
Because, as Valérie reminds us, we also have to get involved in the search for new practices when we are in a relationship.
“People have time to look for a good restaurant, but not to work in the privacy of the couple,” he says.
Do you dare to contradict him and have an erotic cooking show at home?
