The Art of Bedroom Seduction: Our 3 Steps to Creating a Sexy Atmosphere this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, with the whole of February being known as the Month of Love. This means more partner appreciation, more date nights and more intimate moments. Some people are made for this time of the year and simply ooze sexuality wherever they go. For others, however, the art of seduction doesn’t come quite as naturally!

Whether you are trying to seduce a loved one, a date or even yourself, here’s how to achieve it in three simple and sexy steps.

Step #1: Mood
Yes, sometimes a quickie does the trick. But for Valentine’s Day, setting the right
mood can bring all the romance.

Harsh, overhead bulbs are not sexy. If you have a dimming function, use it! If not,
ditch the room lights and try something softer, such as a lamp. Some lamps have
colour settings you can choose from, such as red and pink, for boudoir vibes.
Flickering candles and twinkling fairy lights are another way to shed some flattering light to make the night feel more magical.

We all know that touch plays a big role in sexuality, so make sure that the bed is a
soft and seductive space. Do this by switching your regular linen for something more luxurious, such as silk or satin. Adding soft throws and pillows can also make the bedroom feel way more inviting. Deodorise and elevate the scent of your space with the addition of some fragrant scented candles

Let’s not forget the all-important sense of sound, with music being known to have
mood-altering abilities. Browse YouTube or Spotify for seductive playlists (there
are *plenty* to choose from!) for both of your listening pleasure.

If you want to get more hands-on with your date, it’s time to take it up a notch.
Slipping on, or gifting, some sexy lingerie will make it hard for them to keep their hands off you!

Once the clothes come off, nothing beats a sensual massage, so make sure you stock up on massage oil and get those hands, or even better a massage wand, to work.

Need some inspiration when it comes to spicing up your moves? Fun sex games can help you both loosen up and get in position for pleasure.

Step #2: Food
It’s not time to devour each other just yet! Because first comes something else to
devour – some natural aphrodisiacs. There is a long history of certain foods
being associated with increased libido and sexual prowess. Some of these include figs, pomegranates, asparagus, oysters, truffles and pistachio nuts. And, if you can’t get your hands on fresh shellfish, expensive nuts or rare produce, some chocolate-covered strawberries will also do the trick (even MORE so if you feed them to each other!). And hey, why not some chocolate body paint while you're at it 😉

Food, however, isn’t the only thing you can ingest that can get your rearing to go.
There are several safe stimulants and enhancers available that can increase
performance and stamina. Libido pills and male enhancers can be taken in advance so that you can start the evening off in an amorous mood and keep you going all night long – guaranteed!

Step #3: Get nude
Finally, it’s time to rip each other’s clothes off and do the dirty! With the right mood
for lovemaking being well and truly set, it promises to be a mind-blowing and
memorable month.
