Sexy Simplicity

Filed under: Simple Living — Serendipity @ 8:11 am

Sexy simplicity–oxymoron?  Isn’t bigger, faster, and more expensive always sexier? Not when it comes to lots of everyday situations. If you’ve got a significant other, living more simply can feel like you’re constantly turning down the romance, which definitely doesn’t feel very sexy.

To turn simplicity into something sexy, just take the things you do everyday and cut the gesture or action down to the core.  Get the past the bells and whistles and rediscover the original sentiment.  You might find that without all the extra touches to get in the way, your raw emotions and pleasures shine through all the more strongly.

Here are a few ways you can enjoy simplicity and still feel sexy:

1.  Share your shower. Not only will you save energy and water, you’re sure to get in some quality time.

2.  Candlelight dinner. Everyone looks better and candlelight and it doesn’t take any extra effort to light a few candle.  Save on power and amp up the ambience.

3.  The single flower serenade. If one rose is good, a dozen are better, right?  Not always.  A single, perfect flower is long on sentiment and short on cost.  Bring home one beautiful bloom and use it to give your partner the softest massage ever.

4.  Fingers only. Who needs fancy four-course meals with two forks when you’ve got chocolate and strawberries?  Bread and oil?  Milk and cookies?  Save the cooking and dishwashing for another night.  Finger food is a simple and sexy change of pace.

5.  Sensuous snuggle. There’s nothing more decadent than a mid-afternoon nap, so indulge yourself and cuddle up together with a blanket.  It doesn’t more simple or more satisfying than that.

6.  Bed in the buff. Don’t waste money and closet space on fancy little nothings.  Enjoy the feel of fresh sheets and let your body’s largest organ–your skin–take a breather.

  1. I would rather camp in a tent than stay in a fancy hotel. Nature is very sexy!
