Sam Roddick, founder of Coco de Mer, is interviewed in today’s edition of the Metro on the etiquette of flirting in the bedroom.
Any other suggestions to start off your week, on a grey and cold Monday morning in February?
Flirting in the bedroom
Sam Roddick (pictured) is the
founder of erotic emporium Coco de
Mer. She suggests these tips for
flirting in the bedroom:
‘Flirting is a form of sexual
communication that must be
a dance of words and touch.
If you get the balance right, you
will be rewarded with an
intoxicating night of passion.
Flirting is massaging the soul
into a horizontal position.
‘There are a number of ways to suggest seduce and prime your lover into the right mood for loving you with exceptional enthusiasm. ’The art of flirting should start a long time before the bedroom door beckons. A cheeky or suggestive text message to your other half at the office will get them squirming with anticipation. To keep the pot boiling, try not to meet them at the front door. Instead, leave a list of instructions, such as what to wear - and allude to what they may expect – and that they should be ready for a surprise. ’If you are starting the evening with a meal, a light game of footsies under the
dining table won’t go amiss. Also, keep the conversation away from family, friends and work, and try and recall passionate encounters from your early courtship days. ’When you get to the bedroom, toy visual suggestion, your eyes dipping down, leading them to look at a part of your body: hand caressing your skin slowly. ’Then there is the sure bet of wearing the right thing: a provocative shirt, a not-much-to the imagination dress, topped off with a beautiful push-up bra peeking out. ’Undressing is of
utmost importance. Undoing a dress with buttons at the front and letting your clothing drop to the floor, while keeping your high heels on, will ensure a delirious seduction.’

Valentine’s in London rocks
An avid follower of all things Javier Bardem since senior school…
Having enjoyed a passion for Spanish cinema and all things caliente for eons, Senor Bardem has been seriously high up on the latino pedestal for me.
Now enjoying life as a new Papa with Senorita Cruz, I have been ogling them from afar since Bigas Luna’s Jamon Jamon in 1992 – integral movie for modern Spanish cinema, hitting our previously one-track English-language obsessed big screens with a vengeance.
He demonstrates his immense love of all things cinema. The visual effect is mesmerising and the details so delicate, so beautifully thought out, woven together and smoothly edit; let alone music, script and acting, beyond expectations. A heavy, intense storyline with Javier Bardem delivering a performance bursting with compassion, emotion and empathy. His wife in the film is played by Maricel Alvarez. A clinically bi-polar neurotic who cannot care for her own children, Alvarez nails it. She took me back to the early days of the art house guru, Pedro Almodovar. He had the unique ability to pick his actresses to portray his protagonists whose faces resembled caricatures, of the ilk of Picasso portraits, verging on grotesque, a rarity in Hollywood, requiring the actress to actually ‘act’, gradually revealing to the audience her natural inner beauty from deep within her persona (apart from Cruz of course).
The plot is tragic, with intricate delvings into the ethnic underworld of Barcelona, ravaged with illegal immigrants struggling to survive in a new Europe, rarely touched on in the world of tapas and tourism extraordinaire where Michelin stars are firing on all cylinders.
Do go check out this film, a must-see for anyone thinks they they are a real fan of cinema. Bardem most definitely deserves the Oscar, if just for his method acting. How many expressions can one face give us? Great, powerful, raw masculine stuff. He is the star, however plays the part with a humility that is quite rare. Refreshing stuff – if mind-blowingly effective. Took almost a full day to get my composure back.
PR Girl does it again – and on a Saturday.
Out of breath, I burst into my local newsagents. Waddled through the door in flipflops on a very non-flipflop February day, following overdue pedi. What is the hurry on a Saturday afternoon? Freelance bird surely needs some downtime on the weekend…?
I couldn’t get to it fast enough. There it was; the Saturday Telegraph in all its glory, imprisoned in cellophane. Heming jewels are featured in the weekend’s Valentine’s engagement ring feature, edited by Victoria Bain. The ring is from Heming’s vintage collection – diamonds with sapphires in yellow gold.
After all sapphires are having somewhat of a right royal rebirth this year…Go on boys, make her Valentine’s ’11. Something blue that sparkles..
