Happy Orgasm Day

December 21st is winter solstice day in the northern hemisphere. It is also Global Orgasm Day for Peace. A choice of date that leaves nothing to chance. Solstice celebrations go back to Antiquity. The Romans, for example, great revellers, if ever there were any, organized awesome raves – Saturnalia: the mid-winter ‘festival of misrule’ – to celebrate the rebirth of the sun.

This event is the idea of a Californian couple – peace and love adepts – who think, quite rightly, that if you have a great time in bed, you won’t feel like going to war. A happy sex life for peace at home and in the world, is not such a batty idea after all. Pity it’s not part of diplomatic talks.

During the longest night in the year, if you want it to be the hottest too, with one or several cosmic orgasms, prepare your home to create a meaningful moment with your dear beloved.

For this feast of the five senses, lay out the aphrodisiacs. Forget rhino horn powder, it doesn’t work! We are talking real aphrodisiacs here, such as kissing, food, music, perfumes, massages, laughter, etc.

Create the perfect ambiance with candlelight and music. “If music be the food of love, play again…” scientists proved that music moves the body and the spirit as powerfully as sex – triggering sensations such as shaking, sweating, sexual arousal and sending a chill up your spine – simply because it tickles the same pleasure zones. According to research, melodies with most impact are those with sudden changes in harmony, dynamic leaps (from soft to loud), and melodic appoggiaturas, like you’ll find in Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No 2, Bach’s Toccata in F Major BWV50, Orlando Gibbons’ The Silver Swan, Adele’s Someone like you, Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, Oasis’ Wonderwall and Celine Dion’s My Heart will go on.

This list is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. If Raymond prefers James Brown’s Get Up (l Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine de, no problem! The important thing is to set the right mood.

Choose sensually stimulating food, such as dark chocolate, for example. A little square is big enough to triggers your feel-good endorphins. A study showed that women who eat dark chocolate on a daily basis have more satisfying sex lives than women who don’t.” So, yes, go and grab that bar right now and force yourself to eat a square a day for the better good of your love life.

Titillate your significant other’s senses of touch and smell by treating him to a massage with aphrodisiac essential oils. Various studies with MRIs to prove it, showed the relaxing effect of fragrances on emotions thanks to the same feel good endorphins. They allow you to let go and get high on sensual pleasure.

Tonight, try this magic massage oil for men: Mix 3 drops Ylang-ylang essential oil – with its bewitching fragrance, 2 drops ginger essential oil and 2 drops cinnamon essential oil with 20 ml sesame oil.

Get him to do the same for you and declare that Orgasm Day is to be celebrated on every day that ends in a “Y”
