Sometimes it can be hot to just jump right in. Down and dirty, throwing caution to the wind, no frills food eaten purely to satiate yourself isn’t a bad thing. There is a time and place for meals that have no purpose but to satisfy a craving. But more often than not, jumping right in without any prelude will leave you feeling dissatisfied. One of the most important factors in achieving foodgasm is to put yourself in the right frame of mind. Set the mood.
It may sound cliche but stereotypes exist for a reason. Butter me up with a smattering of cheese, kisses of caviar and a good rub(bed meat) and I’m much more likely to let go of inhibitions and jump into the main course with an open mind and heightened nerves. In fact, foreplay done right can be a foodgasm of it’s own (foodgasming early is okay, as long as your able to rally) rolling you into a crazy awe-inspired night. You may even forget there was ever anything else and indulge yourself in small bites for hours on end. Lots of tiny foodgasms are more than equal to one big one.
When it comes to foreplay there are a few things to keep in mind.
Yes, it involves a certain amount of holding back but you can say a lot in a little bite. Pack it full of scintillating flavors, kinky textures and exotic plating.
