Chocolate… a perfect pairing with wine, but certainly delicious all on its own. How could such a silky, flavorful collection of goodness come purely from ground cacao seeds? After a mere sniff of chocolate, I find myself humming Bob Marley’s timeless tune “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.” Give me white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and I’m yours–they call chocolate the “love drug” for a reason, folks. 

All the chocolate lovers can agree that chocolate has the perfect range of flavors. It remains flawless. But, what if I told you there was a way to enhance your chocolate eating experience to spark sensual joy and ignite your sexual senses? Beneath the sexy flavors of chocolate are sexual stimulants. According to WebMD’s “Chocolate’s Dark Secrets” you unlock the sexiest parts of chocolate with patience; let it melt in your mouth rather than consuming it all at once. As a matter of fact, the Aztecs found chocolate to be an aphrodisiac, not because of the hormones embedded within chocolate, but because of the way it makes you feel when you let it slowly melt on your tongue. There’s nothing like those tingling sensations that a bite of chocolate sets in motion. Not only do these tingles tickle your tongue, but they also warm your heart and help you forget about any worries you’re carrying around with you. 

ASMR & Chocolate

The perfect pair for a sensational experience…

I invite all my chocolate lovers to truly elevate the five senses through ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). ASMR relaxes the body while activating, what I call, your “happy hormones” (dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins). By following our 5 steps to the perfect ASMR chocolate experience, you’ll gain a new appreciation for chocolate, and you’ll adopt a new awareness of your sexual senses. What more could you want than to eat chocolate, relieve your stress levels, and partake in something sexy?

Now, let’s dive into the perfect ASMR chocolate experience. Engage with your lover, chocolate, through these simple steps:

The 5-Step ASMR Chocolate Experience

1. Listen

Slowly unwrap your chocolate and ask yourself, “what do I hear?” Make sure you take your time to unwrap your chocolate; nothing is less sexy than surrendering to instant gratification. How do the sounds of the unwrapping perhaps build up suspense and anticipation? Tease yourself a little… Enjoy the chase…

2. See

Now, I want you to take a good look at that chocolate; really feast your eyes. What color is your chocolate? If it’s brown, what kind of brown? Is it mahogany or closer to pitch-black? Or, is it white chocolate? Is it off-white or more ivory? I want you to now pull out those words you just brainstormed for me in the previous section “Smell.” Why? See if those words open up creative lanes for your mind to interact with how you see the color of the chocolate.

3. Smell

Chocolate varies by color, country, shape, size, and of course, by smell. Ask yourself, “how does my chocolate smell?” Is your chocolate’s smell sweet like fudge? Bitter like coffee? Neither? Think of three things that the smell of this chocolate reminds you of. Got them? Good. Now, think of three things that the smell of this chocolate makes you feel. Keep those words in mind as we journey through the next ASMR phase.

4. Touch

OK, you’ve teased yourself enough… get your hands on that chocolate. But not so fast, chocolate lover, we’re not quite done yet. I want you to feel the texture of this chocolate because, after all, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” It’s true, you never know what kind of chocolate you’re gonna get, so make sure you acknowledge its unique qualities.

5. Taste

Don’t let this title deceive you, friend. Resist the urge to indulge just one more time. Although you get a little taste, I beg you to remain patient and keep reading before you take a bite. If you follow us on Instagram (@fivesensestastings) you’ll see that none other than the superlative Jcoco Chocolate–one of our exceptional vendors–left us a fabulous tip for a world-altering ASMR finish:

“Pinch your nose before taking a bite then release it and take a deep breath after the chocolate has melted a little.”

I’m going to need you to really commit to this one… the more patient you are with the slow, gooey melt, the more sensual joy you’ll get out of these 5 steps to the perfect ASMR chocolate experience.

The company was founded, as so many are, as kind of a side gig. I was working full-time in a technology company but I was also curious about bringing my background in music together with my growing love of wine. I wasn’t in love with how wine was taught, and I wasn’t in love with how classical music was marketed so I wondered if I could take the idea of a “flight” of wine and apply it to music. That’s how the idea of “tasting the music” was born.
