In the days before social networking websites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter became the place to meet friends, Halloween was a night for romance. Young women looked forward to the harvest with corn-husking parties and bobbing for apples with the eligible men. It was a night when flirting was not frowned upon but encouraged.
Women today carry on that tradition, planning Halloween parties and "home alones" for their favorite man.
In my Halloween video podcast, I've put together a trick or treat bag sure to bewitch any man. I give you tips on what to pack in his treat or treat bag, including my favorite treat, a romance novel.
Why read him romance? Nearly 75 million Americans read at least one romance novel in 2008, the latest year statistics are available from the Romance Writers of America. Romance novels are a $1.2 billion industry with 7,311 new romance titles released last year.
So what are you waiting for? Give your man a special treat this Halloween. Don't feed him candy. You're all the sugar he needs. Read your favorite erotic scene to him.
Men are visual creatures, but don't underestimate the power of the written word, especially when you combine that with your low sexy voice and a slow striptease.
What happens next is up to you.
It sure beats bobbing for apples.
