Valentine's Day Special

 

 

Flowers, Chocolates(heart shaped fugly ones), stuffed cuddly(the ‘safe’ kind of teddy), candle light dinner. The adventurous will add a sprinkling of good old porn. Is your Valentine’s Day becoming a re-run of all the Valentine’s Days you’ve been having since 2000? Single or taken, throw a curve ball in Valentine’s Day celebrations this year with these 6 off beat things to do whether you’re single or taken.

No this is not a gift guide or what to do on your date ideas. These are some fiery answers to this love day’s mushiness. Bae or Boo or just you is bound to love at least one of these! Go on light your fire!

1. Love travels. If you’re in any of these places this year on Valentine’s Day, check out these. Or ear mark them for next travels.

 

Valentine's Day Love Hotels

 

We’re sure you’ve heard of them. They’re not all sleazy or seedy if you’re scared of that, but definitely a dying phenomenon now- so see it before they become ‘sedate’. These pay as you go hotels give a surprisingly wide array of services from complimentary sex toys, role play costume rentals to non scented toiletries(to conceal that you were out playing!!!). But what will blow your mind is the very quirky interiors of some of them which are perfect for your kitsch love fix. Revolving beds and mirrored walls are just the tip of the iceberg. So choose well. Check out Booking.com for the best deals on Tokyo Love Hotels.

 

Valentine's Day Crazy Horse

 

Crazy Horse, the legendary cabaret show in Paris, is less known to tourists who throng to Lido and Moulin Rouge. But ask any Parisian and they’ll tell you it’s a landmark of Paris along with the Eiffel and the Louvre. The show which came about as a rebellion against not seeing nudity as an art form is a sensual feast for the eyes. You’ll be just as thrilled by the dancing as the erotic themes- can you imagine some tap dancing erotica?! For the cued in, the costumes were first designed by the legend Azzedine Alaïa and Burlesque legend Dita Von Teese has also performed on this stage.

 

Valentine's Day Museum Of broken Realtionships

 

Yes, there is a thing like this! And we all know that Valentine’s Day is as much about heartbreak as it’s about mushiness. An ode to not just broken hearts but love in all its forms, the Museum of Broken Relationships is a moving, quirky and surprisingly uplifting collective of personal objects from former lovers along with their heartbreak stories in Zagreb, Croatia. Believe us not all stories leave you sad so it’s a great place for a solo trip or with your partner. And if you’re nursing a heart break, it’s just the thing for you- contribute to the museum and give yourself that much needed closure. It works much better than burning that picture of your lover! Contribute here.

 

2. New age sex talk. Put down your playboys and get out of your 50 Shades of Grey. They won’t solve your lust problems. Giving you some much needed disruptive sex talk are these cool picks- you won’t need to go incognito for them either 😉

 

Valentine's Day Karley Slutever

 

Reclaiming ‘slutty’ for all us is Karley Sciortino with a candid blog, Slutever, on sexuality, eroticism and ‘all things slutty’. Karley is also the author of the book Slutever: Dispatches from an Autonomous Woman in a Post Shame World, coming out anytime now, columnist at Vogue and the executive producer of the documentary series by Vice- Slutever. Paper magazine calls her the POST-WOKE CARRIE BRADSHAW. If you’re looking for porn turn elsewhere but if you’re looking to be more ‘woke’, get on it.

For some old-school fun that challenges the sexual & the creative intellectual on you, you could try your hand at penning a slutty personal! Yes, in the age of Tinder, Grindr, Bumble, Craigslist Personals etc., there were newspaper personals. As Slutever has long been a point of convergence for those of us with non-conforming sexualities, it seemed like the right thing to do to help sluts meet other like-minded sluts so Lonely Sluts personals. Whether you’re kinky, vanilla, lonely, poly, a dom, a sub, both, neither, looking for love or lust in the form of a unicorn, monogamy, someone to tie you up, someone who’ll let you worship their feet, a sugar daddy, a leather daddy, a friend with benefits…. Slutever wants to help you find your soulmate. Or the top to your bottom. Or a great one night stand. Or, if nothing else, a good story. Your submission should be (as) artfully written (as you possibly can) and should follow this structure:

So send in a personal, if not to Slutever, then to the one on your lust list or just have fun reading other submissions on their instagram account.
