Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight was defined in ancient times as somewhat love making during daytime, the mischievous type. ‘Afternoon Delight’ also dates back to 130BC in ancient Egypt, when folks went out in the afternoon to the banks along the Nile and made love to their partners. Afternoon Delight coming from the Ancient Egyptian words Aftaron, meaning before night, and delita, meaning sex. For Pura Vida, ‘Afternoon Delight Promo’ is simply an extra 30-minute massage for free. Select any body or foot massage from our selection (Swedish, Shiatsu, Foot Reflex etc.) and avail of our 30-minute massage free from 11am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (except holidays).

Afternoon Delight Promo Origin

Afternoon Delight is popularized by a song recorded by Starland Vocal Band featuring close harmony and sexually suggestive wordplay written by Bill Danoff, one of the members of the band. On July 10, 1976, it hit the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Single. The title actually originated from a zesty menu item of the identical name at Clyde’s restaurant in Georgetown. Danoff relished writing the song but downplayed the rather provocative lyrics, saying, "I didn't want to write an all-out sex song ... I just wanted to write something that was fun and hinted at sex." In 2010 Billboard named "Afternoon Delight" the 20th sexiest song of all time. So from ancient Egypt practice and the sexy song that hit the billboards, came about the connotation of the words Afternoon Delight. Although Pura Vida’s Afternoon Delight is purely and strictly a massage, using the word “Afternoon Delight” is simple combining "best of both worlds", enjoying a longer relaxing afternoon massage.
