If you ask people to name two things that they love, the majority will say food and sex. They are our favourite things, and if we get the chance to combine them you can bet that we will! The problem is figuring out which food items will work best for food play.
While some might seem like a good idea, you’ll quickly discover that they make the wrong kind of mess. There are a few foods you can try which will work perfectly, while others you should avoid. So what kind of food is perfect for food play, and which are you best leaving in the kitchen?
One of your five a day
The image for this blog will have already given you one perfect food to use. Strawberries are popular with food play because you can sensually feed them to your partner. You don’t have to worry about the mess they make, as they are small and bitesized. They are also delicious!
On that note, fruit is excellent for this type of play in the bedroom. You can use pretty much any fruit, as long as it won’t leave a huge mess afterwards. For example, kiwis aren’t great because of the juice left behind and the skin, if you prefer to take the skin off.
Blueberries, grapes, raspberries, and even banana can be good. Your partner might want to tease you by slowly slipping the banana into their mouth… or perhaps they’ll lay a trail of blueberries along your body and eat them on the way to your cock. It’ll be fun, but make sure you don’t squish any into the bedding. Those stains can be difficult to remove!
The problem with using fruits, especially round ones, is that they can easily get away from you in the bed. One wrong move and you’ve squished the delicious fruit into your bedding, leaving it stained. Definitely not what you want, and so you might decide to instead try something else.
A good rule of thumb when it comes to food play is to stick with bitesized pieces. If you and your partner really love something and can make it bitesized, you can use it in the bedroom. Take chocolate for example. Breaking up your favourite bar is going to give you something delicious to snack on.
You can even go for mini muffins to sensually feed to each other, or your favourite sweets. Why not leave a trail on your body for your partner to follow? They can see exactly where you want their lips and it will be a lot of fun!
Using sticky stuff
If you take a quick search online for the best things to use during food play, you’ll get a lot of suggestions like whipped cream, syrup, and honey. Now these items might seem like a good idea, but when you start to think about it, they can cause a few issues. You could get stuck to the sheets, and they aren’t always as easy to get off as you might think.
So you have a few options. Keep some wet wipes to hand so that you can easily clean up any mess. Your tongue might be good, but if you apply a lot of honey to your honey, it is going to take a lot of licking to get clean again.
You can also finish off your food play with some fun in the shower. Once you have managed to get yourselves completely covered in a sticky mess, hop under the water together. You can get each other clean while getting dirty at the same time!
Things to avoid
Something I see suggested a lot when it comes to food play is popping candy. It goes by different names, such as pop rocks, but they are essentially small pieces of candy you put into your mouth. When they get wet, they start to pop. For some, this makes them think of putting some in their mouth before going down on your partner.
This isn’t a good idea. For a start, the popping can be painful. Not only that, but as they shrink in size (which they will) they can easily get lost in places. One Reddit user warned against it, stating that “popping inside a penis feels strange and uncomfortable”, so try something else instead.
On that note, you’ll want to avoid getting anything inside of the vagina or on your penis. With the vagina in particular, sugary items can alter the bacteria in the vagina, which can cause issues. Keep the food play above the waist and, if you can’t resist, make sure you clean yourself thoroughly when you are done.
Do you love food play?
It might get a bit sticky and messy at times, but food play is a lot of fun when you find the right things to try. Keep things small for ease, and make sure you have wipes to hand in case there is a mess. The quicker you clean it up, the quicker you can get back to your fun.
I like to use food in the bedroom every now and then. What about you? Is it something you’ve done before, or simply something you have fantasised about? Let us know in the comments below, and tell us your favourite food to play with.
