What first started as a conversation between couples over dinner and wine grew into a product that couples can turn to increase intimacy in their relationship.

After years of research and development, meet Masque Sexual Flavors. The first product of its kind, Sexual Flavors was designed to add some flavor to foreplay. No, real flavors: strawberry, watermelon, mango and chocolate,

The aptly named Masque Sexual Flavors, well, mask that salty, bitter, protein, congealed taste of ... semen. No kidding!

Unlike flavored lubricants and similar products, the manufacturer asserts that Sexual Flavors has been scientifically proven to cover up the icky semen taste. Of course, you might like the taste. But a lot of us don't.

If you find it a chore. Sexual Flavors allow the receiver to enjoy the foreplay "down there" as much as the giver. This not only creates a stronger bond between partners, it may end a lot of post-sexual arguments. Hey, don't be shy: We've all
been there!

Michael Guilfoyle, the president of Masque, the Tampa, Fla.-based company behind Sexual Flavors, cites "The science behind sexual attraction" that "focuses on what may be unconscious primal instincts. We think the combination of visual, taste, auditory and neurological processes determine the level of attraction between partners, and we developed Masque accordingly."

OK, so how does it work? You remove the individual foil from the package, remove the gel strip, place the strip on your tongue, and let it dissolve completely before beginning fellatio. These orally dissolvable gel strips will last for up to 15 minutes. !That should be waaay more than enough time!)

A partner's scent and taste are often considered an indicator of attractiveness. With Sexual Flavors, each strip ensures up to 15 minutes of flavor-filled pleasure aiming to increase intimacy between partners and encourage sexual exploration.

Sexual Flavors is available for purchase at or at many retailers nationwide in three-packs or single strips.
