The thought of combining beauty, creativity, and sensual touch is enough to get me excited. Erotic body painting is a fun and easy way to do just that and spice up your foreplay. You don’t have to have the skills of Picasso or Michelangelo to make this kind of art. Keep it lighthearted and enjoy the new sensations… after all, sex is meant to be fun.
Before you get started, take a few minutes (seconds if you are impatient) to prepare. First, ensure that neither you nor your partner have any allergies to the paint you will be using. A trip to the emergency room is a quick way to ruin the experience. Next, realize that painting can be messy. Using old sheets or putting down plastic (trash bags work well) can help contain drips and spills. Make sure there will be no interruptions – having to explain to the kids why they can’t join in on the art project could be an awkward conversation. Finally, I suggest starting with clean canvases (so shower up).
Choosing your materials leaves you with endless possibilities. You can always use a paintbrush (thin tips are great)… or you can use fingers, feathers, and sponges. Choices of paint include flavored, water colors, food, and glow in the dark.
Here are some paint ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- syrups (chocolate, caramel, strawberry)
- jams & jellies
- berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries)
- watercolor kits
- water paints (can be found in the toy section in most stores)
- body paint pens
- specialized body paints
There doesn’t have to be a rhyme or reason with how you paint when it comes to the erotic kind. You can draw a map on your body for your lover to follow, including stops along the way with directions (lick, suck, nibble). Painting a picture is another fun thing to do – whether it is elaborate or simple doodles, the sensations you will create as you paint will have them squirming and begging for more. Try painting a thong and bra on her naked body… or get more creative by adding a corset and thigh high stockings. Paint a sexy pair of underwear on him (he can have a g-string too). For added excitement, use flavored paint and lick their new “clothes” off of them when you are finished. When you blindfold your lover, all of their other senses are heightened (including their sense of touch). So go ahead and slip a blindfold on them. Then paint words or messages on their body and let them guess what you are writing. Run a bath for two and bring along the water paints. There are bath paints made for kids that will work perfect. Painting a message on yourself with glow in the dark paint for your lover to find when the lights go out is a fun little surprise. Leave an X marks the spot or a silly message like “do me now”. Your gesture is sure to get a laugh and some action.
