Ladies - need an idea to get him interested again?
The “Fifty Shades” books are full of them! The problem is that Ana and Christian are a couple who can not keep their hands off of one another and who have very few other responsibilities (children, mortgage, cars that need fixing, etc.). No reason to fret, with a bit of imagination and some adjustment, many of these ideas can be brought into your real world.
One of the best passages is in the second book around page 44. Ana wants to go to bed and Christian is making her wait. She starts a flirty foreplay until he gives in. First, she gets him out of his comfort zone and has him go grocery shopping with her. When was the last time you got your husband in the store? Don’t have to be a multi-gazillionaire to do that! I know, he will roll is eyes, decide it is women’s work, whatever. Take it as a challenge, not a turn-off. If he has always had a wish for you to go out sans underwear, this may be the time to use that as a bargaining chip. Promise that it will be fun. Do whatever you need to and get him into the local grocery store.
Walmart may not be the best location for this. A smaller store may be better. Also, this is not the time to do the marathon shopping for the week. Plan and shop for a small get-together, even if it just for two! Early on in the trip, give him something to do…find his favorite chips, etc.
“WHEN WAS THE LAST time you were in a supermarket?” Christian looks out of place, but he follows me dutifully, holding a shopping basket. “I can’t remember.”
Follow up with something suggestive, “think the cucumbers have gotten larger since you tried it last?” When he looks up surprised, “I’m thinking of shopping, where is your mind?” <wink> If you can continue without being overheard, “What do you think? I have been thinking about overcoming this gag reflex and am not sure whether practicing with bananas or cucumbers would be better. What do you think?”
As he continues to be shocked, you can always play the innocent, “I meant for when I brush my teeth, what were you thinking about?”
If he gets the idea and starts advancing, slap his hand away and remind him that you are both in a public place. On the other hand, if you took the advice on going out without your panties, this might be a good time to tell him or remind him!
If it is summer time and hot outside, hold a small jug of milk or OJ to your face, look at him through your lashes and tell how good the cold feels since you are so hot…
There are tons of other ways to flirt, tease and generally torture him in the grocery store. Ideas include – nuts, coconuts, any food that you can handle.
Go to the utensils area if you are brave enough. With him watching, get one of those plastic serving spoons and slap it against the palm of your hand, “makes a very satisfying sound, don’t your think?”.
Pick up a bottle of soda, “you know, if you do not handle these correctly, they spray all over the place”. You will be much better at this than he is. Do not overthink it, just have some fun. Make sure he has to do the “manly” thing and put the groceries in the car. Tell him you will tip him when you get home, later that night… If he gets the idea and gets into it, you may have to hold him off until you get the ice cream put way, but that is another article…
