Is Chocolate Really Better Than Sex?
Can anyone really say that, when we have a “chocolate vs. sex” dilemma, the former wins? Sure, we all love eating chocolate, but come on — banging is banging! Surely, when it comes to chocolate and sex, the latter is the preferred choice for all. But, is that really so?
When you look at it, chocolate is much better and more convenient. For instance, if you have chocolate on top of your workbench during work hours, you won’t get face-slapped. You can eat all kinds of chocolate in front of your mother. You can ask a stranger for chocolate without being called names. The word “commitment” doesn’t scare off chocolate, and the sentence “If you love me, you’ll swallow” has real meaning with this sweet, sweet thing.
Joking aside, let’s take a look if chocolate can really be better than sex. While reading this, you can fill your mouth with chocolate — it will be a hairless experience.
The Long-Running Question
This dilemma is not a new one. The question we’re asking here is something people have been thinking about for decades, if not centuries. There have always been folks who would ask us what we thought about it. And we always say the same thing — good chocolate is easy to find, it’s cheaper, and it’s consistent. You always know what you’re gonna get when you buy some. Even when you buy something cheap, you will get the expected outcome.
With sex, it’s a bit different. You don’t really know how it’s going to play out before it actually goes down. No matter how bad the chocolate is, it will never be as bad as poor sex. You can take it whenever you want, as much as you want. It will never leave you with a headache, and it will never unexpectedly get you up the duff.
But, when you find that perfect someone who does exactly what you want them to do in bed, then what? Is a Mars bar still holding its ground? Maybe not. Well, instead of guessing, let’s take a look at the facts.
Another clue that this is a frequent question comes in the shape of the sheer number of surveys about the topic. Across the world, researchers asked people to choose between sex and chocolate. For instance, in 2014, Harris Interactive carried out a poll in France, and you may find the results surprising.
The poll surveyed 1,000 people. On a scale from 0 to 10, women rated sex at 6.7 regarding how much pleasure they got from it. Men, unsurprisingly, gave it a better score — 7.5. Both genders rated chocolate as the most pleasurable piece of food. However, women rated it higher. In fact, 23% of women said they enjoyed chocolate more than sex. If they had to pick between them, 57% of them would rather cut back on sex. Compared to this, only 39% of men would pick chocolate over sex.
One of the reasons why so many people prefer chocolate is due to our perception of sex. Simply, chocolate never disappoints us. You know exactly what you can expect from it, and that’s exactly what you get every time. With sex, it’s a different story.
Many people have grown accustomed to not having regular sex. Their expectations are just too low. They simply believe that sex for them can be mediocre at best. Many of us don’t find the thrill in it, and getting to the point of having sex can be hard work for some. So, the question between chocolate and sex can be asked differently. Do you want something mediocre that you have to work hard for, or do you want something great that you receive instantly? The answer is obvious. On top of that, you can bite the nuts too hard — the chocolate won’t mind.
Why Choose When You Can Have Both
There isn’t really a reason why you have to keep these two separate. Chocolate sex can be a great way to spice things up in the bedroom, while both elements have various health benefits on their own. You can eat chocolate before getting into the action, as it’s proven to be an aphrodisiac. But, you can also combine it with foreplay.
If you want to incorporate something new in sex, chocolate is your best friend. For instance, you can play a sensual game of hide and seek. You can put a blindfold on your partner and put some chocolate somewhere on your body. Then, get your partner to find the chocolate with their tongue, licking your body everywhere you like in the process. Another thing you can do is make hot chocolate and spray it across the erogenous zones of your partner.
If you really love the taste, you can use a chocolate-flavored condom or lube. Just make sure you don’t put actual chocolate in your vagina, as it can lead to infections.
