3. Rose Petals

Like Water For Chocolate / Via

You probably didn't know rose petals are both romantic and edible. Use them in that crazy dish from Like Water For Chocolate and see if you can brandish similar (but not exactly the same) results. It's rumored to inspire a certain fiery passion.

4. Strawberries and Champagne

Pretty Woman / Via

Eat them together to really bring out the flavors of these two romantic foods, both known aphrodisiacs and linked to romantic activity in almost every scenario they appear in.

5. Animal Crackers?

Armageddon / Via

Animal Crackers don't seem particularly romantic but Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler demonstrated otherwise in Armageddon. Follow their example, right down to the exploration turning from innocent to erotic.

8. ADVANCED CLASS: Whipped Cream

Varsity Blues / Via

This one is NOT for beginners. If you're looking to take it to the next level, try using a bottle of whip cream as an outfit. Guaranteed to take the atmosphere to new extremes, as demonstrated by Ali Larter in this classic scene from Varsity Blues.
