Spice up your love life with some unexpected ingredients.

Delectable food can transform a meal into a sensual experience. It's no wonder these edibles find their way into bedroom foreplay, adding a little heat with a dash of sugar (or spice) to a lovers’ night. If you're way past whipped cream and are looking to elevate your bedroom food game, give these four sexy bites a try.
It may sound strange, but cold-water fish is a known aphrodisiac. It contains vitamin B-12 and omega-3 fatty acids, both of which elevate your mood. Plus, during the Samurai period in Japan, sushi and sashimi were served on a naked geisha to celebrate a victorious battle. So next time you're feeling frisky, pick up an order of your favorite sushi selections and head straight to the bedroom. It could be a fun opportunity for some historic role play, too.
When you're steamy between the sheets, popsicles make a perfect condiment for cooling off. Grab your favorite flavor from the freezer, and visit your partner's erogenous zones. Take turns tantalizing each other. Want to drive your partner wild? Incorporate your favorite toy like the Durex® Play® Allure® Intimate Massager with the ice for an extra dose of excitement.
Nothing says seduction like hand-feeding grapes to your partner. Other juicy fruits that complement the bedroom include mango, kiwi, melon, passion fruit, strawberries and blueberries. Add fresh squeezed orange juice to a few glasses of sparkling wine and keep them bedside. Freeze berries in advance and break them out for some icy fun. Combine sugar, berries, and 1/2 cup water in a saucepan to make a raspberry coulis and get creative with how you eat it. The possibilities are endless!
Chocolate, a well-known aphrodisiac, stimulates the release of endorphins into the body and leaves lovers feeling euphoric. When you combine mouth-watering chocolate with the fluffy texture of whipped cream, you get chocolate mousse. It's less messy than chocolate syrup and more creative than whipped cream – the perfect compromise for dessert in bed. Scoop it into a frosted glass dish, serve it with a cold spoon and top it with a cherry to elevate the senses.
