There was a 70′s group called The Starland Vocal Band with a one hit wonder type of song titled Afternoon Delight:
‘Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight. Gonna grab some Afternoon Delight. My motto’s always been; when it’s right, it’s right. Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night, when everything is clearer in the light of day. And you know the night is gonna be there anyway. Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon Delight. Afternoon Delight.’
Straight to the point, isn’t it? Will Ferrell’s character in the movie Anchorman also starts to sing the song as a response to the question, “Hey, Ron, what does love feel like?” As we start to see a trend in the idea, definition, and obvious execution of what makes up an Afternoon Delight, it doesn’t consist of any type of high maintenance; sometimes they are short and sweet so you can go about the rest of your day, while other moments turn into all day session(s).
Alas, the big question: was it FAB (Hit) or a complete fail (Miss)? We’ve all had moments in love/sex of trying too hard to make things happen. Hopefully most things just happen naturally, right? Regardless, there is nothing like the thrill of getting it on while the postman puts a letter in our mailbox, or in the dressing room of a Victoria’s Secret. You know what we mean… So after a brainstorm or two, we give you our version of a hit or miss:
HIT: Keep it spontaneous. Strike when the mood is right.
MISS: Answering the phone mid-play, resulting in completely killing the moment.
HIT: Inviting your man over for lunch to reveal your outfit: high heels and a coat.
MISS: Looking over to see a photo of Mom smiling back at you.
HIT: Serving up whipped cream, honey and chocolate sauce to play with.
MISS: Having your lover blurt out someone else’s name.
HIT: Major eye contact – one of our favorite HITS.
MISS: Not being on the same page if you partake in “between the sheets dialogue.”
HIT: Know how to be creative with an ice cube.
MISS: Planning it out and having your lover not show, resulting in a not so savvy masturbation session.
