Valentine's Day is tomorrow! Still not sure what to do? Don't worry- Kama Sutra has got you covered with our guide to everything you need to have the perfect Valentine's Day (yes, even if it's last minute!).
KAMA SUTRA'S GUIDE TO THE PERFECT VALENTINE'S DAY
What to do:
Stumped on what to do and where to go on Valentine's Day? You have two options, each depending on whether you enjoy crowds and people or prefer to celebrate more privately.
Make reservations at a favorite restaurant that you and your partner both enjoy. Many popular restaurants are booked during peak dinner hours, from 5 to 8 pm. Get in last-minute by requesting an early or late dinner reservation like 4pm or between 9 and 10 pm. If you still can’t find an opening at your desired eatery, try some place new! It could be somewhere you’ve always wanted to try or someplace completely random, the element of surprise will give your evening an adventurous twist. Who knows- you might just find yourselves a new favorite spot!
If you prefer the quiet, comfort and privacy of home, skip the reservations and cook your lover their favorite meal. If you’re not a great chef, let them cook one for you- or even better, cook the meal together! Cooking together can be a fun bonding experience for couples that brings them closer and sets the stage for deeper intimacy after dinner. If the house is messy, or staying home bores you, pack up a picnic for a romantic dinner under the stars. Grab a bottle of wine and head to a beautiful local spot in nature, whether it be a park, a beach or even an empty roof top in the city. Just being alone together, at home or outside, will really get the romance flowing. You will each be able to focus all of you attention on one another without distractions or interruptions.
What to wear:
This is a fun one- whether you’re a man or a woman, staying in or going out, we have the perfect look for you. Just follow these guidelines:
Valentine’s Day is all about love (and sex, too!) so you want to wear something that shows your partner that you’re ready for love. Keep it classy, and chose something you personally feel sexy and confident in. Wear that little black dress that fits you perfectly, or the shirt she got you for your birthday that she says brings out your eyes.
You have to feel good, to look good. Don’t wear something that is too tight, too revealing or just plain uncomfortable. Be yourself.
Plan for the activities that will follow dinner… by choosing the appropriate undergarments. According to Psychology Today, both men and women are attracted to the color red. Red increases feelings of passion and represents strength, heat, love and power. If you’re a woman, put on your favorite set of lacy, red lingerie. He will love the sexy surprise when he takes your clothes off after dinner. If you’re a man you don’t have as much to work with- just underwear. Put on your silkiest softest pair of boxers or briefs (bonus points if they’re red!)- she will love the sensation against her skin when you hit the sheets.
What to eat:
Whether you’re dining in or dining out- what you eat on Valentine’s Day can influence the course of the night. Turn up the heat and the feelings of passion with these aphrodisiacs:
Probably the #1 food linked to love and sensuality, just the aroma of chocolate is enough to boost sexual desire. Known to release pleasure-enhancing dopamine into the brain, eating chocolate is associated with love and attraction.
Red wine can help you heat things up with your sweetie by sending your lust into overdrive with the mix of resveratrol from the fermented grapes and the alcohol to loosen tension and ease nerves.
Bananas contain an enzyme called bromelain which can boost testosterone production. They are also rich in Vitamin B6, which helps build serotonin levels and elevate your mood.
Avocados act as a mood-booster because they are rich in folic acid, vitamin B6 and potassium. Originally discovered by the ancient Aztecs, the smooth and creamy texture combined with the rich flavor has been known to increase feeling of love
Oysters have a notorious reputation for increasing love and promoting fertility since they are high in zinc, which has been shown to boost libido. They also contain amino acids that may trigger sex hormone production.
Salmon can help elevate mood and prevent depression with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids may also raise serotonin levels in the brain, which improve feelings of happiness and excitement.
