The Origin & Evolution of Sweetest Day
From a corporate philanthropic marketing event to a Midwestern mini-Valentine's Day, learn how Sweetest Day started and how it has changed over the years. Now a special day to remind someone you're sweet on them, get some ideas for sweet and sexy ways to celebrate on October 16th!
Picture yourself in a business meeting 99 years ago, working for a candy company. The bosses are looking at a horrible handwritten balance sheet of their faltering company, heads nervously shaking, voices booming, wondering how they will stay afloat through winter. They know they need to make it back to the booming times like Valentine’s Day, when candy is bought with reckless abandon. Even the cocoa competition is freaking out - scared enough for multiple local confectioners to call a truce and meet to figure something out. Suddenly, someone stumbles across an idea that just might save everyone in the candy industry. Think of the children!
That’s right! Why not start giving away candy to kids, the underprivileged, and shut-in people? It will start a public trend! Others will buy chocolate as a sweet gesture for their loved ones, and sales will come roaring back to life! But what should it be called? You, being the go-getter that you are, raise your hand in this meeting 99 years ago, busting out of your wrinkly suit to let everyone know what the day should be called – Candy for Everyone Day!!!
Minutes later, as you gather your things and put them in a box, then are escorted out of the building that you used to work in, you see the other executives hugging and smiling in the big meeting room, overhearing through the cheers and hurrahs the real chosen name of this new holiday- Sweetest Day. And so the tradition begins...at least in the Midwest.
Sweetest Day may have corporate & commercial roots, but fast-forward 99 years and it’s come a long way. It may not be well-known everywhere, but the knowledge has been spreading beyond the Midwest for years now. One of the biggest hurdles to awareness may be that it’s a floating holiday, always landing on the 3rd Saturday of October (this year, it is on the 16th). Mark your calendar now, because it’s no longer about only candy. There are plenty of sexier ideas that will satisfy more than just your sweet tooth. Here are a few suggestions to help make Sweetest Day fun to celebrate this year and for years to come.
Becoming the treat this Sweetest Day is as simple as slipping on a new sexy piece of lingerie. Make mouths water when you wear this Not So Basic Babydoll in a bright candy color - slightly see thru, completely irresistible!
Forget that full-body robe for a weekend and instead try out a Sweetly Sexy Gown. Wearing this isn’t quite as warm as a fuzzy robe, but steamy thoughts will arise in your partner in no time once they see you in this yummy piece.
Want to invoke some sweet but sinister thoughts? How about a Sweetest Day strip tease? Start off wearing your weekend loungewear, but underneath, surprise your lover by wearing a seductive bodystocking. Your body will look incredible, and your confidence will soar!
You are on Intimacy Advisor reading our lusty articles, so I am going to assume you are somewhat familiar with sex toys. But just in case, why not go with a classic tried & true vibe that will help lead to sweeter stimulation, and maybe bigger orgasms! Bullets are discreet and powerful, plus quite popular in a pinch. Basic touch speed controls that are easy to operate while providing extra stimulation during foreplay or sex.
Want to simulate penetration? How about a Jack Rabbit vibe? Great for getting off, this type of toy not only vibrates and tickles your clitoris with its cute bunny ears, but it also features rotating beads in the shaft for extra stimulation that will help take you over the edge.
Sometimes, telling someone "Happy Sweetest Day" just isn’t enough. Why not use your mouth for more than just lip service, and show them how much you care? You’re never too old to learn new tricks, and you just might stumble across new ways to get your partner to come. Brush up on your oral technique (or maybe give your partner a not-so-subtle hint to that they could use some help) with these books on the art of oral.
