So, we thought it would be nice to come up with a series of posts of different things we could do to help keep the romance in our relationships. Not all of these will be something that will blow you down awesome, but we think little things add up. It's the little things in life that truly count anyway, are we right?
Since we don't live close-by, we had to make our own love lube separately. Renee's turned out great as you can see in the lower right hand picture, looks like it's had some fingers digging in it. *wink wink* Mine on the other hand, not so much.
I just couldn't get the stuff to whip right and ended up with a few hard balls (pun definitely intended) of lube, although I guess "lube" isn't the right word since there's not much it can be rubbed on in it's solidified state. My hands are nice and smooth from handling all of the coconut oil though so that's a plus.
I told my husband about this little idea and he didn't seem all that enthusiastic. You see, I get these great ideas and he just nods along as I tell them to him. Sometimes they come to fruition but most of the time there is a little something left to be desired with my "concoctions."
Here's a little secret: I'm not that good at making things using a stove.
As I was adding the aphrodisiac to the coconut oil and beeswax my husband walks in, sniffs the air and says, "what's that smell?" Reminding him about the lubricant and showing him the bottle he says "it smells weird," then "I think I'm allergic to coconut, well I was when I was a kid but I can eat Samoas."
So even if the lube had turned out more luby, lubie, lubey... we might not have been able to use it. We did enjoy a box of Samoas before bed.
Yes, my experience! The great thing about writing with Kris is that I get to live vicariously through her. She's almost.... well lets just say a few years younger than me. I think we make a great writing team because we look at things differently, but still similarly enough that she doesn't make me fell too old.
I made my personal love lotion on Friday night with high hopes of it giving Mr. Renee a hint. After being married over 20 years, sometimes they need a nudge in the right direction.
I made the fluffy concoction. I brought the essential oil bottle for him to smell. I ask Mr. Renee, "What do you think about this smell honey?"
He paused whatever stupid show he was watching on the t.v. with a big sigh. He just answers, "yeah, that's nice." So the scent that's supposed to be "aphrodisiac" didn't bring on spontaneous desires, as I had hoped (oh, I didn't mean to type that.). As we went to bed that night, I said, "feel the texture of this stuff, it's awesome." (Yes, I'm a little too enthusiastic.)
He sticks his fingers in it and rubs it in his hand, "It's a little greasy," He tells me.
I told him it was supposed to make "things slick".
So, without anymore details, it does make things slick. He didn't like the oily feel on his fingers. I, on the other hand, love the texture of this stuff! If you rub it in your hands really well, it leaves them baby soft!
I love using Coconut Oil, it has so many benefits: Increase your energy expenditure, helping you to burn more fat. So, my thoughts are this; use coconut oil for your love lotion and burn more fat while keeping the romance alive!
