There’s a lot of pressure to be romantic on Valentine’s Day. Here are some tips.
1. Set the Mood
If your typical sex routine involves a little "wham-bam, thank you, ma’am!" whenever you can find a few spare minutes, maybe it’s time to slow things down and spoil one another. Extended foreplay is a surefire way to feel closer to your partner and increase the power and satisfaction of your next orgasm.
Start out by setting the mood and getting busy by candlelight. The soft flicker is super sexy and everyone looks good in candlelight – goodbye insecurities. Bonus points: Use massage candles that melt into massage oil. These special candles burn at a very low temperature so you don’t have to worry about burning yourself.
Surprise your bae in a sexy piece of lingerie. The visual will peak their interest; and leaving just the right amount of mystery will have them wanting more. If they weren’t already in the mood, they will be now. Oh, and don’t forget your pheromones.
2. Get a Hotel Room
If you live with roomies, this may be the most considerate option provided there's a reasonable hotel deal you can track down. No roomates? Still get a hotel room. A getaway is great a way to give you guys the time to focus on yourselves, rather than your neighbors.
3. Try Aphrodisiac Foods
Chocolate…and more chocolate. Oysters are also great. You can read our full guide on aphrodisiac foods here.
4. Buy Each Other One New Sexy Item for the Bedroom
Shake up your love making routine: commit to bringing one new thing into the bedroom.
Try a couples’ toy designed specifically to wear during intercourse like the We-Vibe Sync or a vibrating c-ring. If you’re feeling kinky, how about some restraints or a blindfold? The sensory deprivation of a blindfold will heighten all your other senses, like touch. H.O.T.!
Lastly, you can always pick up toys to use on one another. Use a stroker on your man when you’re giving him a HJ or this BJ Helper during a mouth party. For your lady, use a g-spot stimulator during oral.
5. Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday
Want to make sure you have the hot Valentine’s Day you deserve without being late to the office? Get it on BEFORE you leave the house!
Sure, it seems typical to go to dinner, have a few glasses of wine and then hit the sack for dessert. But, being full, tipsy and tired might not make for the most romantic romp and it’s likely to lack the necessary foreplay. If you can’t seem to make it happen, don’t stress. Get it on in the AM with some lazy morning fun in the spooning position; just don’t forget the reach around or a vibe so you can still make it to work on time.
