Valentine’s Day is one of the most underrated holidays. Everything is red and pink and shaped like a heart. Chocolate goes on sale. People buy you chocolates just because. You have all the excuses in the world to sit at home watching sad movies with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s on a Saturday night. Oh, and not to mention, it gives you another reason to tell everyone in your life how much you love and appreciate them.
Because we’re big Valentine’s gals here, we’re letting you in on all of our secrets for a romantic, love-filled holiday. Whether you’re newly in a relationship, had the same Valentine for years, or your planning to give yourself chocolates this year (no shame!), there’s something here for you. We’ve got lingerie, sex toys, massage oils — you name it!
There’s more than one reason it’s called V-Day, ladies. (Too much?)
This water-based lube can be used on toys and condoms. It's free of glycerin, glycol, and parabens, so you can have fun without worrying about anything gross coming in contact with your body. This one has a hint of natural lemon and vanilla flavors just for an added bit of fun, which might be exactly what you need to spice up your play time this V-Day.
This lube is aloe-based, meaning it's latex friendly, free of parabens or glycerin, vegan, and natural and organic. The ingredients list of this lube is pretty impressive -- including Quinoa Seed Extract, Chenopodium Cannabis (Hemp) Sativa Seed Extract, and Linum Usitatissimum (Flax) Seed Extract. These ingredients add moisture to the area and washes away easily with water.
The last thing you want to deal with when you're having some V-Day fun is the gross stuff inside your condoms. Opt for a line that is natural and won't cause irritation. Maude's condoms are a favorite because they're easy-to-open, meaning you'll never have to worry about which is side is up or down. Feel free to stock up on these!
OK, I know this one looks weird, but I promise you, it will change your life. Satisfyer says this is a "pressure vacuum," but the easiest way I know how to explain it is that it's a vibrating suction cup. This is one of those toy's you just have to try it to believe it. This has 11 different speeds, is waterproof, decently quiet, and comes with a USB charging cable. I'm serious -- you need it.
Using sex toys with a partner for the first time can be somewhat intimidating. You don't want anything too large-and-in-charge, but you also want it to have enough power to change up what you've been doing in the bedroom. A vibe like this is perfect for that. You could easily use it during sex to add more stimulation, but it also works well during foreplay or on your own. This one also comes in hot for it's affordability.
LELO is basically the Chanel of sex toys. They're gorgeous, high-quality, and feel so luxurious. This vibe is small and discreet, making it perfect for partner and solo play. It's the first ever scented vibrator, has eight different settings, is waterproof, and USB rechargeable. Go with this if you're looking to splurge this Valentine's.
