Tips for a simple (and sexy) Valentines Day #ChurchDwightAmbassador

Since becoming a parent 2.5 years ago, The Hubster and I have changed how we celebrate holidays during the year.  The way we celebrated Valentines Day pre-children is VERY different how we celebrate Valentines Day now. Pre-children we would have gone out for a nice dinner (and made reservations weeks in advance) and exchanged elaborate gifts. I would have spent way too much time trying to find the perfect card even though I hate cards. Last year, our Valentines Day celebration consisted of an exchange of Princess Peach. Bargaining who would bathe her, feed her etc. I did make a delicious cheese fondue for dinner which Princess Peach refused to eat but The Hubster and I devoured. It’s very easy when you become a parent to get caught up in your busy lives that you forget the simple and yes, sexy.  Valentines Day doesn’t need to be all about the gifts, cards, chocolate and all of that other hoopla. It’s about spending time together as a couple (even if it’s 30 minutes once the kids are both asleep!).

Sexual Health Expert Robin Milhausen offers 3 tips that cost less than a box of chocolates and can be part of a healthy sexual relationship, not just on February 14. robin headshot color

  1. Foreplay, all day – “When it comes to the bedroom, foreplay can start early and build throughout the day,” explains Milhausen. “Leave your partner a sexy note in their briefcase, send a text at lunch, and let the anticipation build.”
  2. Good vibrations –Vibrators, such as the Trojan Vibrating Pulse, are perfect for foreplay with concentrated pleasure pulsing pretty much anywhere you and your partner think you might enjoy.* “If you’ve never used a vibrator before, these non-intimidating products are a great option,” explains Milhausen. For added convenience, they can be found at your local drug, grocery or mass retailers. PA1007775_Pulse_right
  3. Indulge your senses – There are three Trojan pleasure-enhancing lubricants to choose from including Continuous Silkiness, Arouses & Intensifies and Tingly Warmth.  Personal lubricant is the perfect way to take passion and pleasure to new heights.* “A lot of couples have the impression that a lubricant is only used to fix a problem, but they can also be about increasing pleasure and fun,” says Milhausen.lube

I hope that everyone tomorrow will be able to spend some quality time with your partner. No matter if you’re a parent of young children or not it is very important to get that one-on-one time together. Hope you have gotten some ideas for making  your day special! As Robin Milhausen says “Connecting sexually in a new and different way can be all it takes to have a Valentine’s Day you will never forget”.

Wishing everyone a sweet Valentine’s Day!
