"Say goodbye to the stress of your neighbour or flatmate hearing you through the walls."
It's the day of all things romance, of chocolate-dipped strawberries and champagne, teddy bears and cheeky Nando's dates. Also the perfect time to stay in, experiment, and treat yourself (or your lover, if they're lucky) with the sex toy of your dreams.
We've selected our faves to give you ideas. The cherry on top: they're eco-conscious! Let's get to it.
1) For fans of the Rabbit: the Camphor by The Natural Love Company
Get ready for a lot of solo fun. The Camphor offers both penetrative G-spot stimulation and simultaneous clitoral suction - a combination of dreams thanks to its 10 vibration patterns, rechargeable power with over 1 hour of play (giving you ample time to explore), waterproof properties, body safety, among other features. The Natural Love Company is the master in eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing sex toys, and it doesn’t disappoint here. You can also find a wide range of organic and vegan-friendly lube, condoms and toy cleaners onsite, as well as couple hampers, and an innovative sex toy recycling scheme that gives customers the option to send back their redundant sex toys (no more throwing away or hiding old sex toys).
