Seduce Your Palate: Why Wine and Food are Better than Sex

This post is from guest blogger Tamara Belgard of @sipwithme All my blood was rushing to the organs in the lower regions of my body. I sat there looking across the table at my husband, slowly wrapping my lips around the cool metal fork, enveloping the last bite of warm toffee bread pudding, feeling it sweet and satisfying as I took it in my mouth and let it slip down my throat.
