Dark Chocolate Body Paint
Most paints, flavored lubes, body frostings, etc. seem like a good idea, then turn out to be super gross. But that’s not an issue with this chocolate body paint. Inspired by the famous chocolate shops of Brussels, jump on this delicious gift: High on Love’s Dark Chocolate Body Paint. It is delicious and full of hemp-seed oil, known for its relaxing and pain-relieving properties. There is a version made with THC (for literal high love), but is only available where cannabis products are legal. No breaking the law!
This chocolate body paint comes in a gorgeous glass, heart-shaped bottle alongside a small paintbrush. Take turns painting flowers and hearts on each other’s bodies and then licking it off. It’s a beautiful and sensual gift.

Burn No. 1
Massage is an awesome foreplay technique. Rubbing your partner’s back, shoulders, and legs can really get them in the mood. To make a massage even sexier, add in a simple BDSM element: Hot wax.
Don’t go rifling through your kitchen closet looking for a regular old candle to drip on someone. You will end up in the ER. instead, give your partner a sexy massage candle. These candles heat up to just the right temperature for skin. Plus, you know, fire.
You get to sensually drip wax on your partner, without any risk. We love this musky, cedar scented candle from Maude. It legitimately smells like what you imagine sex smells like in your imagination. Infused with Jojoba oil, it will leave your skin silky and smooth, never greasy.
