Valentine's Day is traditionally seen as a holiday for couples, but why should people in relationships have all the fun?

At Lovehoney, we believe that you don't have to be coupled up to appreciate the most romantic day of the year. So whether you decide to treat yourself to some brand-spanking new sex toys or get stuck into an erotic novel, here are 5 ways to have a super-satisfying Valentine's Day, whatever your relationship status.
Lovehoney needed someone with a vagina to try a variety of anal toys, so being the selfless individual that I am, I volunteered. I know, I know, it’s a bit of bummer but don’t worry, it’s all behind me now.
Jokes aside, I loved trying out these four new toys. Ok, they’re not ‘new’ per se, but all were new to me.
I haven’t had much experience with anal play or anal sex. This isn’t because I don’t want to take part in this fantastic form of fornication, quite the contrary.

Giving head, eating out, tossing the salad - whatever you call cunnilingus, fellatio and anilingus, one thing's for sure: oral sex is an unbelievably satisfying, intimate act.
Unsurprisingly, people have been doing it since the year dot. In the city of Pompeii, which was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, erotic frescoes depict people doing it, while the Kama Sutra suggests some tricky tongue fun positions.
And the Victorians were a pretty creative bunch when it came to describing oral – from "prick eating", to "minetting" and "eating seafood".
But despite the fact it's been around for years, even the most enthusiastic "lick-spigot" probably has a few questions and hang-ups about oral sex.
So, we thought we'd put all our tips together to bring you one big guide!

Join Jess and Lisa in this weeks special festive sex toy video to find out which toys they'd give to their partner in a stocking.
