Indulgent treats like dark chocolate can make you feel wonderful while infusing your body with antioxidants.
Dark chocolate is the candy of love! Nothing against gummy bears or lollipops, which also have their merits (and, in fact, are valid options for enticing your love interests... sugary goodies of any kind will do). Dark chocolate, however, takes things to another level. How does dark chocolate improve thee? Let us count the ways... The antioxidants in dark chocolate keep cells healthy, lower blood pressure, and help protect your body from free radicals and oxidative stress. Beyond the benefits of antioxidants, dark chocolate can awaken your senses, bring you very much into your body and the present moment, and put you in a romantic mood. You are, after all, devoting time to enjoying and treating yourself. Your readiness to let go, relax and fully feel good in the moment contributes to how much romance you experience in your life. Because dark chocolate is considered a dessert, enjoying a bar helps you feel pampered. It encourages you to be open and receptive to pleasure.

Yes, yes, yes!

Whether you're enjoying a dessert on your own or savoring sweets with lovers of yours, dark chocolate can bring out your sensual side.

It's more than just candy and can be a full-blown experience. Just dreaming about dark chocolate before you even get your hands on it is where it all begins. This phase of anticipation leads to finally getting your hands on the sweetness you've been waiting for, unwrapping your treat (with the same eagerness you might display while removing a lover's clothing!), and at last savoring the complexities and nuances of flavor in dark chocolate (or what you've been fantasizing about for some time now).

The fun really begins when you're with lovers. Have you ever tried drizzling dark chocolate syrup all over a lover's body? I can't recall having ever tried this myself, but I imagine it's sticky sweet fun! Or try taking a bite of dark chocolate, have a lover get a mouthful of whipped cream, and kiss each other!

Paired with red wine and strawberries, dark chocolate becomes an especially romantic treat - as well as a prelude to other date-night activities.

Dark chocolate can relax you - and feeling relaxed and sensous can lead to passionate make out sessions! Try having a lover blindfold you while they feed you different varieties of dark chocolate.

Get some.

Not only does dark chocolate help you nutritionally, it can do things for your love life that will have you saying, ""yes, yes, yes"" to more chocolate on a regular basis! Put these things on your sexy bucket list for dark and delicious fun:
  • Drizzle dark chocolate syrup all over a lover's bare skin.
  • Take a bite of dark chocolate and kiss a lover who has whipped cream in his/her mouth!
  • Surprise a lover by blindfolding him/her and feeding them different varieties of dark chocolate.
  • Make s'mores together while buck naked. Hot gooey marshmallows and dark chocolate firmly pressed against each other between graham crackers = YUMMY!
