Valentine's Day is just around the corner, which means that the card, flower and candy companies are hoping you’ll buy their wares for your friends, family and lovers. 

But it's not just about these traditional gifts. A recent CNN poll found that an astonishing 85% of men and women say that sex is an important part of the Valentine celebration, and that half of the respondents said they'll be disappointed if they don't "get lucky" on the 14th. Furthermore, nearly a third plan to buy a "more specifically sex-oriented gift" for the occasion.

If you plan to start your V-Day with a little love before breakfast, keep this in mind: sex need not be like cornflakes – plain, dry and boring! And, if you need some help, take a look at a few products that can add juice and spice to your V-Day festivities!  

Cock Rings: These tried-and-true nifty sex aids moderate blood flow and help the penis to stay erect. Some cock rings also come equipped with mini-vibrators to stimulate the base of the penis, as well as the man's partner's parts. 

Couple's Vibrator:  Relatively new on the scene, internal vibrators such as "We-Vibe" stimulate both partners during intercourse. As an added bonus, the manufacturers claim that they're easy to clean. 

Prostate Massager: If you're feeling adventurous, you might try a prostate massage with your partner. Different people like different sensations — some preferring pressure, rather than vibration. So, take it slow to find out what works best for you and your lover. 

Lubes: Dry and painful sex is a common complaint among American couples. It's especially common when the male partner has been circumcised, because the foreskin's natural moisture and gliding action are missing. Thankfully, help can be found at the corner drugstore.   Lubes come with water, oil and silicone bases. They come in flavors. And some lubes will give you and your honey a warm or tingling sensation. Read the labels carefully, and stop using any product that causes a rash or irritation. 

And don’t forget coconut oil (be sure to buy organic, and "food grade"). It’s natural, and it tastes GREAT!

This Valentine's Day, put a little extra love into your heart, hands, and everywhere else!  And remember, sex should never be like cornflakes!

Again, Intact America endorses no products, nor can we confirm the efficacy (or even safety) of the compounds and devices described above. But we want you to know what’s out there! As awareness grows about the harms of circumcision, we can expect to see more products entering the mainstream.
