3) Engage all your senses
Bringing food into the bedroom engages the senses and we don't just mean taste. Use foods that smell and feel good on bare skin. (Sorry, stinky cheese lovers. Save that for a real meal!) To keep things hot, try foods you can heat up, like chocolate or honey. Or you can go the opposite direction with popsicles, frozen grapes, or just plain ice. Play around with these items, hot and cold alike, running them over sensitive zones like the neck, earlobes, nipples and lips.

At the same time, don't forget to use your hands to stroke, caress, and massage your partner, especially below the waist, where food is off-limits.
4) Get creative with your mouth
Good oral sex is about varying the amount of pressure and speed with your tongue and mouth. Good foodplay works the same way. Instead of simply licking food off part of your partner's body, try sucking cream off his finger or gently nibbling honey off his body. (Yes, getting toothy's okay, as long as your partner likes it.) Or start with simple lip touches and work your way toward completely enveloping skin in your warm mouth.
5) Come prepared
You wouldn't go to a picnic without napkins, but you wouldn't take your 10,000 thread count sheets either. So don't forget to pack some appropriate gear for your naked picnic. Lay down towels or sheets that you don't mind getting dirty. Bring napkins, or even better baby wipes, for clean-up. Using tools, like a drizzle bottle for chocolate and honey, can make foodplay a little tidier and keep your hands clean. Ideally, licking fingers (or other parts) clean will suffice before you get busy. And don't forget to keep the usual sexy stuff — condoms, lube, and any toys — nearby.
6) Have fun
"Play" is a key component of "foreplay." Be creative in the way you use food with your partner. Tease each other with little bites. Dribble honey onto each other and slowly lick it off. Share a lollipop. Make a whipped cream bikini with cherry nipples on top a la Varsity Blues and make him beg for a taste. And don't be afraid to laugh at each other. You might be surprised at how something that starts off silly can end up sexy.
7) Clean each other off afterwards
You set the table and devoured your partner. Now don't forget to wash up! Gather any plates, utensils, leftovers and food-splattered clothing or bedding, so you don't have a big mess to worry about later. Then hit the shower and help your partner clean those hard-to-reach spots. Who knows? It may even lead to round two. Dessert, anyone?
