Take the creative power of sex one step further this weekend: Try a little body painting with your partner. You don't have to be a van Gogh to wield this paintbrush! Whether using your imagination or a set of stencils, body-friendly paints can bring your inner impressions to life and put a little fun back in the bedroom. Let him paint a flower on your breast or torso, dress him up with a little war paint, or show your creativity with a more abstract design using wild colors and textures. Many body paints are edible (and tasty!) too. Have fun with flavors — red paint tastes like cherry, yellow like lemon, and blue like blueberry.
Want to create a lasting (and provocative) piece to hang in your home? Try using your bodies as the paint brushes! Get a large sheet of paper from an art supply store and paint various parts of your bodies. Press a part here or your entire body there — you can even paint each other and then make love on the paper to see what design you're left with — now that's modern art!
For other forms of sensual artistic inspiration, try giving these ideas a shot:
Hot & Cold: When your partner comes home, surprise him with a blindfold. Lead him to the bedroom, remove his clothing, and instruct him to sit — or lay — down. Beside the bed, have a smorgasbord of hot and cold sensual delights prepared. Try taking a sip of hot chocolate or ice water before teasing him with your mouth. To add a little more flare, eat a hot pepper, pop in a breath mint, or take a long sip of cold, bubbly, champagne and keep it in your mouth as you orally please him. Drip low-temperature hot candle wax on his torso or try stimulating his nipples with a piece of ice. For slightly more PG-13 options, take a swig of champagne and slowly dribble it into his mouth, or pass a piece of ice between you as you make out. If you take your fun to the bathroom, try sprinkling each other with cool, dry cornstarch or give each other a milk bath!
Got Rubber?: For a more animalistic experience, try experimenting with liquid latex. If you’re really in tune to physical sensations, you should love the feeling of the cool rubber being painted onto your body by your partner, and how sexy and tight it feels when it dries. It’s a visual feast for him, too, as your frame is covered with artwork that hugs every curve and contour of your physique. And when things get hot and heavy in the bedroom, you’ll both have fun peeling the rubber off in long strips to get at the soft, sensitive skin beneath. But be careful. Don’t paint your entire body — your skin needs to breathe!
Bring Out Your Inner Writer: Try your hand at writing erotica. One day, when he’s not around, sit down at your computer and dream up an erotic fantasy that you can act out in real life. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try using fake identities. In the fantasy, you can even pretend you’ve never met him prior to your steamy rendezvous! Before leaving, print your fantasy and leave it in a place where you know he’ll read it. Hide it in the newspaper, put it under his coffee mug, or tape it to the fridge, next to the grocery list. Don’t tell him why you wrote it. He’ll read it, and then he’ll spend all day thinking about it and what it means. As soon as you get home, make the fantasy a reality — it’ll be sure to drive him wild!
No matter how you choose to do it, getting creative in the bedroom can be thrilling. It adds an element of the unexpected to what might be an otherwise predictable sex life, allowing you to see and experience each other in new and exciting ways. So what are you waiting for? Get those creative juices flowing!
