“What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast? You look good doing it, and it’s a nice thing to do for somebody you just had sex with.“
Exactly. And it doesn’t have to be some lengthy gourmet ritual or sensual experimentation in licking maple syrup off each other (unless you’re into that). All you need is a little food, some creativity, damn strong coffee, and these tips.
Set the scene
Make it a surprise. This is a generous, nurturing gesture that makes others feel really special. Even more so when they don’t expect it.
Pick a time when you two can lounge for awhile. This should be a lingering, indulgent, relaxed experience.
Doesn’t matter if you eat off clean dishes or straight out of a pink bakery box. What does matter is avoiding spillage of anything that’s scalding hot or super sticky.
If only there was a breakfast in bed playlist. Oh wait! There is.
