Dr. Trina’s Response: Sadly, I believe, a big reason couples lose their desire to kiss passionately is a lack of attention to their (bad) breath. Yet, bad breath is one of those “darned if you say something and darned if you don’t” predicaments.
Sometimes subtle tactics work; hints like, offering a stick of gum, sprig of parsley or whatever breath freshener is available. However, most people pick up on this, will probably get defensive and walk away in a huff—breaking the (already broken) mood.
You need to ask yourself: is your guy’s bad breath a once in a while thing, or is it chronic? If it is the latter, a trip to the dentist may be in order. Otherwise it means having a gentle chat that acceptable breath isn’t only for his work environment.
Remember, it’s a big motivation for him to know fresh breath equals you feeling more romantic.
Then show him this trick: When he wants to get romantic, simply lick the inside of his wrist and sniff. If he does not like what he smells, he immediately needs to do something to alleviate the situation.
Great Sex Tip
Make sure to keep something like a pack of Listerine PocketPaks at your bedside table when things start heating up. You will both have minty fresh breath and things will stay heated up.
