Social Distancing? Flatten the Curve With a Date Night In

The COVID-19 pandemic may seem like an unusual time for romance. After all, you’re worried about yourself and your loved ones, and you’re (hopefully!) social distancing, which means you’re holed up either by yourself, with your family, or with your partner. If the latter situation is true, then you might have found that intimacy with your special someone has been on a steady decline. We get it — it can feel impossible to create a space for sensuality when it seems like all you do is wander around the house in your pajamas and binge watch your favorite TV show (no shame). You want to reconnect with your partner by taking them out on a date, but everywhere is closed, and takeout for the fifth night in a row doesn’t exactly scream of romance.

Don’t worry! Just because you’re social distancing doesn’t mean you can’t make time for intimacy. In fact, doing so is more important now than ever before. Times are dire, so it’s important to let your partner know much they mean to you. Thankfully, Liquid Love is here to help.

In this blog post, we provide you with three easy steps to create the perfect date night in for you and your special someone, culminating in a sensual massage courtesy of Liquid Love

Cook a Romantic Dinner

Thankfully, fresh ingredients are still available, so you can cook up a sizzling, steamy meal for your sweetie. First, pick out a recipe that you and your partner will love. We recommend opting for something that features aphrodisiacs, such as oysters, honey, hot chilis, figs, or asparagus. Next, find a recipe for a sumptuous dessert, like chocolate-dipped strawberries (a double aphrodisiac!) that you can feed to your lover with your fingers. Don’t forget the whipped cream!

Once you’ve decided on the menu, order some groceries online or quickly duck into your local supermarket to gather your ingredients. It could be fun to keep your date night a surprise, so you might want to tell your partner not to disturb you as you get cooking. 

Wine and Dine 'Em

Once the meal is ready, slip into something that makes you feel great and summon your sweetie to the table. We recommend dimming the lights and illuminating the space with candles (if these aren’t readily on hand, you can order them online). Serve up the meal on your nicest dinnerware and watch as your partner goes wild for your homemade creation. If you’re a drinker, break out a bottle of some romantic wine (red wine is always a classic) and toast to your relationship. If you’re not a drinker, opt for some non-alcoholic sparkling cider or fresh fruit  juice. Finish off the meal with your sensual dessert, then head to somewhere with a cozy surface, such as a couch, bed, or massage table, if you have one. 

Give a Sensual Massage

We’ll go into the basics of how to give a sensual massage here, but check out our comprehensive guide to sensual massage for the full 411 on how to do it right. First, dim the lights, adjust the room temperature so that it is comfortable, and turn on some romantic, relaxing music. Instruct your partner to get on the cozy surface face-down. They may be dressed or undressed, depending on their comfort level. Next, it’s time to apply your Liquid Love

Pour a quarter-sized amount of Liquid Love into your palms and rub them together to warm up the oil. Spread the oil down your lover’s back and, starting with a light touch and downward strokes, massage their back, neck, and shoulders. Communicate with them to determine what they like and don’t like (consent is always essential!). Pay attention to how their body responds to different motions and pressures and adjust accordingly. 

If your partner is okay with it, you might want to give some love to their erogenous zones — no, we don’t mean “down there.” The term “erogenous zones” applies to both genders, and simply refers to any part of the body that experiences heightened sensitivity and/or arousal when touched. Aside from the obvious areas (lips, nipples, butt, etc.) you can also try stimulating some not-so-obvious erogenous zones, such as the ears, feet, and inner wrists. Should your partner consent, use your mouth to lightly kiss, lick, or even nibble. As for what might come next...we don’t like to kiss and tell. 

Reignite Your Intimacy With Liquid Love

We live in uncertain times. In addition to staying safe, healthy, and informed, it’s important to let the people you love know just how much they mean to you. Just because you’re social distancing with your partner doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your intimacy. With Liquid Love you can reignite your love life in ways you never thought possible, all without having to leave the house. So, what are you waiting for?
