Chocolate stole my heart.  I remember the day so perfectly.  A block of pure Cacao (ka-kow) Butter (white raw chocolate) arrived at my doorstep.  I opened the package and instantly was moved by an aroma that sent my heart swirling.  My lover and I hovered over it, anxious to get a taste.  We sliced off a small amount and as soon as it melted in our mouths we looked at each other, both of us excited with the discovery of the same idea, instantly we started smoothing it into each other’s skin.  But of course the fun didn’t stop there! Our lips and tongues got involved, and you can imagine the rest.  Within moments we were in a new place of sensation; aroma, taste and touch had us very awake, very much aware, and very much aroused.   
 
I never thought I would be a chocoholic, but when I found out that chocolate has aphrodisiac and healing qualities I had to find out for myself. I couldn’t resist the temptation, which is why the white chocolate was delivered right to my doorstep. By the time I heard about white raw chocolate, the whole realm of pure chocolate had become nearly an obsession. If you read anything about the history of chocolate you will discover that the magical properties of this plant were well known in ancient cultures. For Example, did you know that at one time Cacao Beans were actually used as a form of money and considered just as valuable as gold? In the book Naked Chocolate, David Wolfe states that Cacao has over 300 chemical properties that affect our brain chemistry. Of these, I find three to be of most interest; PEA (the chemical the makes you feel as if you are falling in love), Anandamide (the bliss chemical), and Dopamine (a mood booster). These three chemicals which are in pure raw chocolate are produced naturally by the brain and released during love making and at the moment of orgasm.     Chocolate is actually good for you in its natural state. It is one of the highest sources of Magnesium, which makes it very heart healthy. So, it makes perfect sense that chocolate is connected with Valentine’s Day and the heart. Chocolate is also a natural mood booster and helps the mind to focus.
 
Over the years I have enjoyed bringing cacao into my erotic escapades, tapping into many erotic uses of Cacao.   Creating sensual pure chocolate recipes became my favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. First, I experimented with just eating it right off the skin. But it didn’t stop there. Besides the taste, the aroma of the chocolate stimulated my senses and created a deep sensual feeling. You can use a blindfold on your lover and have them deeply inhale the aroma.   The smell of chocolate does affect the libido. But one of my favorite erotic uses of chocolate is using it as massage oil. Imagine yourself sensually massaged with chocolate butter that leaves your skin feeling decadently soft and lickable. The oils soak into the skin and cause a similar effect to eating it. And it is one of the best flavored lubes you could possibly imagine.
Try these recipes and find out for yourself. You can find most of these ingredients at your local health food store or on-line.
 
Erotic Chocolate Sauce
1 Cup Cacao Powder
½ cup of Unrefined Coconut Oil
½ cup of Agave Sweetener or Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Vanilla Bean
 Bananas or a Lickable Partner
 
Melt the coconut oil by placing the jar in warm water. Mix all ingredients except for the bananas. Make sure that it is all mixed in well. If you want a darker chocolate add more Cacao Powder. Now you are ready to drizzle onto a partner, or if you want to create a treat that you can feed each other cut the bananas into chunks and freeze for 4-6 hours. Dip the bananas in the chocolate sauce and the sauce will freeze into a hard shell. Have you partner close their eyes while you slide this frozen aphrodisiac into their mouth!
 
 The Best Chocolate Massage Oil EVER!
½ of a cup of Cacao Butter (also known as Raw White Chocolate)
¼ of a cup of Coconut Oil
Melt both the Cacao Butter and Coconut oil by placing the containers in hot water. Mix the melted oils together in a measuring cup for easy pouring. Pour into small massage bottles or a jar. Leave close to your bed to use as a sensual and edible massage oil or lube.

Note: This mixture will solidify at room temperature so you will need to melt it before use as oil. You can do this by placing the jar or bottle in warm-hot water. Even though you will be tempted, don’t put it in the microwave, the heat will destroy many of the beneficial properties of the oils.
