Going green in the bedroom doesn't have to be a bummer, in fact "going green enhances one's sex life and relationships -- it brings you into closer touch with your sensual self and heightens your awareness," says Eco-Sex author, Stefanie Weiss. Stefanie gives us some awesome, fun, and easy green tips to spice things up for Valentine's day.
MBG: What's the easiest thing we can do right now to green our sex life?
SW: Start with your relationship to your own body: choose only products free of petrochemicals, cancer-causing preservatives like parabens and other toxins. The better the quality of the stuff you slather on your skin, the better you'll feel. Your sex life will benefit greatly, as will your health and self-esteem.
Any favorite foods to help spice things up between the sheets?
Cinnamon -- easy, instant aphrodisiac for guys. You can buy organic, fair-trade varieties and use it for both sweet and savory dishes.
Chocolate -- This is a psychoactive food that gets it's name from the Greek phrase "food of the gods", and it's not by accident. Only buy fair-trade; make sure you avoid brands that source their cacao from places that engage in slavery. Once you've got that down, dangle a piece in front of your lady-friend and it'll get you far.
