Top 10 Gifts & Games for Better Foreplay
If you're looking for a unique gift that will be truly appreciated and treasured, give your relationship the gift of incredible foreplay.
In the age of night shifts, school runs and overtime, the pressure is on to fit in as much as we can into as little time as possible, but sex is not somewhere to cut corners. A quick rush and fumble and we're down to the deed? We think not!
Coital speeding is a sexual happiness offence, so it's time to slow down the pace and learn to linger.

4. Rude Food: Lovehoney Oh! Chocolate Body Paint
Is chocolate as good as sex? Well… it has high levels of PEA, which causes the body to release dopamine (a feel-good hormone) and also a small amount of adrenaline. Dopamine then elevates the levels of oxytocin in the body, a bonding hormone that is released when we kiss, hold hands, and get sexy together. You can expect to feel happier and relaxed, with increased sensitivity to pleasant sensations and more emotionally connected with your partner.
So now you know why our Lovehoney Oh! Chocolate Body Paint (£5.99) is a best-seller! Did we mention you can also lick it off your partner's naked body?
"This was my first purchase on Lovehoney. It tastes yummy, better than other brands we've tried. Really recommend this. It's good for foreplay" - MrsMac14, Lovehoney customer.
