Sensuously Celebrating Being Green!
by Jill Crosby
Whether single or in a relationship, we can always bring more sensuality into our lives… while keeping it green!
I recommend supporting local businesses by purchasing the items below at your nearest earth-friendly co-op or green grocer. Buy organic or GMO-free when you can. Remember, it’s all about the allure of caring for the planet and each other.
Here are some natural aphrodisiacs to enjoy with your date, lover or partner:
Avocadoes – Hopefully, on your trip to the farmers’ market you have loaded up on sexy, succulent, fruits and vegetables and you haven’t forgotten a few avocadoes. Yes! This smooth, silky, vitamin E filled, emollient, is perfect for rubbing body parts, boosting arousal, and adding intensity, for a slippery edible adventure. After rinsing off, you will both notice how moist and sexy your skin feels.
Cornstarch – Buy it organic and from the bulk bins. This surprisingly sexy ingredient feels like liquid silk. On a hot day, start by massaging your date’s/mate’s back, work up to a fully body massage when things start to heat up. Let the pleasures flow.
Melted, free-trade, organic, rainforest chocolate – Support the free global market by heating up some rich, dark chocolate, placing a cup full next to your date, and begin tantalizing them through their nose. Nothing’s better than dipping fruit or fingers into thick, warm chocolate and having a sensuous tongue lap it up. Make sure you wear a sexy, little apron with nothing on underneath while you stir and heat up the chocolate. Use your fingers to write something erotic on your date’s skin, then erase it with your tongue. Remember, chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine (PEA), the same “loving” chemical that our body naturally produces during the first moments of falling in love (or lust). Edibly erotic!
Homemade granola – After your erotic adventures, you both may be ready for something a bit more hearty but not too heavy. Try some organic homemade granola or make it together. Granola, made with organic oats and grains, is rich in magnesium and other healthy vitamins and minerals. Add some seeds, nuts, and dried fruits. Aim and toss it into each others’ mouth, whoever catches the most gets a fantasy fulfilled by the other.

Seasonal berries – Pick juicy, ripe, local berries that are small and delicate. They are just right to plop into a waiting mouth. Savor the juices, feel the berries in the midst of a sensuous long kiss. If you are feeling very berry-licious and a bit mischievous, smash them on each other and take pictures of these juicy designs before biting and licking them off each other.
