Recipes For Sex Challenge: Steamed Lobsters

It's week three of our challenge!! Are you eating well and getting frisky often? I hope so. This week is about pampering yourself and your partner and getting a little indulgent. Ready?!?!?!?!?!?

Oscar sure was ready...he sat and guarded the lobsters like it was his job!

When my mother told me that she was sending me Maine lobsters via mail for my birthday, I was canning with her and my mother-in-law. I said, "That's awesome! Who should I invite to dinner?!" They both were in agreement that I should use them as a recipe for sex. Who was I to argue? After all, lobster dinner definitely gets me hot under the collar and it's one of my FAVORITE foods.

I decided that steamed lobsters was, in fact, the perfect date night in. It's also decadent....and it made me think of decadent sex. For me, this type of sex is about indulgence. I wanted to be indulged in lobster and my husband all in the same night. It also happens that lobsters are a food that my husband and I like to cook together.

I waited for his day off, told my mom to send the lobsters that day and I got my mind in the mood for sex. When the lobsters came, I proudly declared to my husband: "I am going to eat these lobsters for dinner, and then I'm going to eat you for dessert." The best part? I still wasn't sure he had caught on to my Recipes For Sex Challenge and he said, with a touch of surprise in tone, "Ooo, that sounds great to me!"

I have had this lobster pot since Christmas (thanks to my Dad!), and I have only used it a handful of times, so it was perfect and I was stoked to finally be using it for LOBSTER! You don't have to have a lobster pot to execute this recipe, but you will need a big pot. The upside to have this lobster pot is that it's got two pieces to it, so you can throw the live lobsters in the top, set that aside and then put it on the steamer once the water gets going.

And let's talk about the water thing. I used a mixture of water, veggies, and chardonnay. I also made some lobster thermidor from the other lobsters my mom sent (she gave me four in total) so this made sense for me to do. You can use the water/veggie/wine mixture or just keep it to water. This is totally up to you.

I also know there is the element of killing live lobsters here. There is only one thing to do in this case: don't think about it, get over it and focus on the outcome (feasting on perfectly cooked, fresh lobster.) At one point when we put them on the pot, my husband said, "They could be alive right now." I promptly scolded him and said, "We are NOT talking this thing out. Just let it lie!"

After we dined on fresh, yummy lobster, I didn't feel overly full and I was ready to indulge in the carnal portion of the evening...but this was not normal sex. This was post-lobster sex, so it needed to be treated as such! I went into the bedroom and changed into some sexy, black lingerie and reappeared in the living room. When I came in, my husband was so excited he paused the TV. Hehe. Let's just say, we didn't make it out of the living room. It was an indulgent, living room sex kind of night, and I loved every minute of it!

The challenge: steam the lobster, eat it, dress up sexy and indulge yourself sexually. Take your time with the sex (and the dinner!) and go that "extra mile" when it comes to taking care of yourself and your partner...maybe do it in a place that isn't the bedroom. I always think that adds an element of excitement, don't you?!!?

Decadent sex: CHECK!
Steamed Lobsters

Time: 40 minutes, start to finish | Serves 2 | Difficulty: How do you feel about killing a lobster?

You Will Need:

2 live lobsters (mine were 1 3/4 pounds each)
1 lobster pot 

Salted water -or- I used 1/2 cup white wine, 3 cups water, some parsley, peppercorns, bay leaf and onion (sliced thin). I made thermidor after this, so this made sense, but otherwise, the salted water will do. 


Bring the water or broth in your steamer to a boil. 

Place the live lobsters in the pot portion of your steamer. (If you don't have the type of steamer I have, you will be putting them directly in the pot. Cover with a lid and don't think about it too much. 

Place the top portion of the steamer over the boiling water, and keep that lid on there tight! 

Allow the lobsters to cook for 20 minutes. When they are done, they should be bright red the meat should be white. 

Serve with drawn butter. I also served mine with a simple side dish of roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts. 

Eat, enjoy, and then  GET LAID!
