I love the way those two words go together and the idea of using simple ceremony or tradition as a means of engaging more sensually with life.
The first morning my man and I woke up together, he brought me a cup of coffee in bed. This, of course, was grounds for marriage. I was so touched that I drank it which was totally reckless since I get wired off a cup of decaffeinated green tea.
Let's just say I found a way to channel the buzz and eleven years later Coffee In Bed is still one of our favorite rituals.
I encourage you to try it whether you are single or in a relationship because either way, there is something completely decadent and loving about crawling back into bed with your morning coffee or tea. Besides, testosterone levels are highest in the morning and why let that bit of biochemistry go to waste?
A few suggestions:
If you are flying solo: Allow this to be a potent self love ritual. Savor every sip. Drape your sexy self in some lingerie. Massage lotion into your skin. Indulge in some great reading material (like the Blog Me Sexy archives). Fantasize.
If you are with a lover: Forego the sexy underwear and sip naked. Entangle your legs. Light candles. Be sure and keep your conversations focused on sensual things. Share your dreams from the night before, especially sex dreams. Read erotica or this blog to each other. Talk about what you are going to have for breakfast, anything really but work, bills or life issues.
And between sips, press your warms lips together and let those coffee-flavored tongues dance.
I met a couple a few years ago that had a ritual of sharing a bottle of champagne each month on the full moon. What about you? Any sexy rituals to share?
