Taste the Sensual Rainbow

Feb 06, 2023

Hey Sexy Thang, Taste and sex may seem like unrelated topics, but research has shown that there is a connection between the two. The sense of taste plays a significant role in sexual pleasure and can even influence sexual attraction. One of the ways in which taste and sex are connected is through the sense of smell. The sense of smell is closely linked to the sense of taste, and studies have shown that the way a person smells can influence how attractive they are to others. For example, research has found that men who eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables are considered more attractive to women due to their body odor. Similarly, women who eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables are considered more attractive to men due to their body odor. In addition to influencing sexual attraction, the sense of taste can also play a role in sexual pleasure. The taste of food can affect sexual arousal and can even lead to orgasm. For example, some people may find that certain foods, such as chocolate or oysters, can increase their sexual arousal. Chocolate contains compounds such as phenylethylamine and tryptophan that can elevate mood and create feelings of pleasure. Oysters, on the other hand, are a rich source of zinc, which is important for testosterone production. There are many cultural beliefs that attach the taste and consumption of chocolate and oysters to arousal as well as their general symbolic meaning. You don't need to eat chocolate and oysters to include taste into sensual play. Including taste into your sexual experiences can look like: eating foods off the body, dripping foods onto the body, and eating out of one another mouth/hand. These actions can be done during solo pleasure or partnered. They aid in increasing the desire for yourself and the partner- especially if its a food you like! Overall the sense of taste can influence sexual attraction and the taste of certain foods can affect sexual arousal. Pleasure Opportunity: Explore different ways to include taste into your solo playtime. Use foods that hit multiple:

  1. taste buds- sweet, salty, tart, tangy etc. and

  2. textures- creamy, soft, sticky,

  3. temperatures

Notice how they feel in your mouth, on your skin, and in your hand. See which taste and foods bring you the most pleasure, and the most sensation to your body and your taste buds.
