My early memories involve us bumping into one another at the tents of NY Fashion Week, tech events and anything glam and amazing. We would tell our life stories in a matter of minutes or maybe a few hours! To know her is to be drawn to her and recently I love that we have been able to hang out more! If you heard my radio interview with her earlier this year then you know that Shoshi (Yolanda Shoshana) is the Modern Day Courtesan and Luscious Lifestyle Diva! She teaches us how to still retain our natural sexiness and how to initiate it in a world where many times our focuses are all over the place. Bi weekly she will share her sexy insights with us and I'm so happy that she is on board! In keeping with her name, her segments are Keeping it Luscious! Last week she laid out a fab plan to maintain sexiness in our relationships. Today we look at ways that we can be aware as well as to do a number of things that maintain sensuality for ourselves and others!
When we are young, we are taught about the five senses and how important they are. As we get older, it becomes a bit harder to stay in tune with our senses because we are a society on the go, plus for some reason there are times when we hold back because we worry about what other people may think.
Remembering to take time to please the senses can change your life. Here are six things to arouse your senses for pleasure which lead to a luscious life!
Feast on Aphrodisiacs- Aphrodisiacs are foods that are thought to lead to more sexual desire and arousal. There is something extremely decedent about these foods. Not to mention, some believe they can really spice things up during foreplay and during the real deal in the bedroom. Some noted aphrodisiacs are strawberries, honey, green tea, and oysters. It is quite easy to incorporate aphrodisiacs into your daily life. Don’t you think it is time to play with your food?
Scent- Do you have a signature scent? I always recommend for a woman to have a signature scent that makes people think of her. It is one of the reasons I started making perfume oil, because I am such a firm believer in the power of scent. Scent has always been written about for having the power to attract people into our lives. The scent you choose should be a unique scent, not the same perfume that everyone else is wearing. Search for something different that leaves the right touch of you as you saunter away.
Make a Mixed CD- Make a mixed CD of your favorite songs so that you can pop it in whenever you need a pick me up, you feel joy, or just because. Music is magical for setting a mood, so have a mixed CD for every mood. If it is not music that does it for you, think about what you like to listen to that brings you please and pop that on a CD.
Try Tantric Massage- A massage can be erotic, but add tantra in the mix to unleash a surge of sexual energy. The purpose of tantric massage is awaken the kundalini, a very intense and healing form of energy that is lying dormant at the base of the spine. The kudalini draws out sexual energy in the body. Sexual energy is creative energy and vice versa.
Get luscious lingerie- Toss your old tired cotton panties and step up your game with sexy lingerie made from silk, satin, or lace. Wearing it under your clothes will make you feel sexy and confident. Also, go for a sexy piece that would not be typical for you to wear. You will walk with a new sexy spring in your step, plus it will feel wonderful against your skin.
Follow your desires- Desires are your friend. They are the things that nudge you toward your dreams and goals. Listen to your desires because it is your soul talking to you about which path you should follow. Do not stifle yourself; it will only make you unhappy. All of your desires mean something; it is up to you to listen.
Be open- Last but not least, being open to try things in your life will give you pleasure. It gives you chances for spontaneity, creativity, and is way more fun. It also allows you to feel free to as you experience new things, places, and people.
