K-Y Intimacy Experiment Day 8: In Good Taste

Joe and I both love food. But as far back as I can remember, I have always been the chef in our house. Don’t get me wrong; Joe will occasionally grill some burgers on the grill or make some pancakes for breakfast. Yes, that is by far the extent of his cooking talents.

Recently we participated in a wonderful cooking class together. Believe it or not, it was actually Joe’s idea! We chose a hands-on class specifically for couples. Not suprisingly, it was one of the coolest dates we’ve had in a long time. Each couple chose a part of the meal to prepare. Together we chopped, mixed, baked and plated our delicious menu items. When it was all complete, we got to sit down and enjoy our elegant meal together. We both absolutely LOVED the whole experience and will definitely do this again in the near future. It is amazing how much we interacted with each other and worked as a team. We chatted and laughed the whole time. And guess what? Since our cooking class, Joe has been cooking more at home – and loving it! Cooking together can be very sensual with all of the delicious aromas involved…and even more so if you add in foods that act as aphrodisiacs such as oysters or chocolate.

Here’s some food for thought: “In a recent survey of 1,500 couples, nearly 83% of those who said they cook together at least three times a week rate their relationship as excellent, compared to just 26% who said they rarely or never do. A little sizzle in the kitchen may even translate to the bedroom: The same survey found that 58% of couples who often cook together are satisfied with their sex lives, compared to a third of those who don’t.”

Today’s experiment – Prepare an aphrodisiac-filled meal together. Unfortunately I spent a long day at a conference in New York and did not arrive home until after dinner. Although sad to bypass the main meal, we went ahead with dessert. We chose to make dark chocolate brownies with strawberries and whipped cream. There is something super sexy about strawberries and whipped cream. And you certainly can’t go wrong with chocolate. Hey, it’s an aphrodisiac! We paired all of this up with a nice glass of wine. The result? It turned out to be the perfect recipe to set the mood for a sensual, romantic night.
