The Art of Seduction

As a Rebel, dinner and a movie just ain’t gonna cut it. You’re not one to sit back, relax, and just wait for the mood to strike. You’re going to make things happen in ways that are unexpected and exciting. Tell your partner to buckle up!

Sure, hand-holding is nice, but it’s even better when it’s done on a roller coaster! White-water rafting, bungee jumping, skydiving — anything that gets your heart racing and your blood pumping makes a great date, because those bodily reactions mimic what happens during arousal. Pretending you’re in mortal danger together is a real bonding experience that increases intimacy instantly, which is a great way to get into the mood. (Why do you think the producers of The Bachelor send the people with a fear of heights on mountain-climbing dates?)

In a world of instant messaging, instant coffee, and instant gratification, it’s great to deliberately slow things down. Go in for a kiss but don’t let your lips actually touch for a good few minutes. Explore everything but your partner’s naughty bits for a half hour. Tell your sweetie you’re going to ravish him or her but wait two hours, two days, or even two weeks! Building anticipation increases erotic tension so that when you finally get what you both want, it’ll feel that much better, be that much more intense, and be appreciated that much more.

Foot fetishists often get a bad rap as deviant weirdos who don’t get out much, which is such a shame because the feet are full of nerve endings just waiting to be stimulated. So it takes someone bold and, yes, a little rebellious to include some footsie attention in his or her foreplay. After a nice soaking, have your partner lie back and enjoy your nibbling, sucking, light tickling, and massage. You’ll see: A million reflexologists can’t be wrong.
