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 for men or get stuck into some new reading material, here are 5 ways to have a super-satisfying Valentine's Day, whatever your relationship status.

1. Experiment

Being single is a great time to find out what you really like without the pressure of wanting to please a partner.

Although you probably already have an idea of the type of things that turn you on, there's no harm in experimenting on your own terms - and what better day to do it than Valentine's Day?

If you've never experienced the sensations of a male masturbator, lube one up and go to town. If you've always been curious about anal play spend your evening getting acquainted with a butt plug or prostate massager. We could go on but you get the idea...

2. Restock Your Underwear Drawer

Whether you prefer briefs, boxers, or something more exciting altogether, we believe that the pants maketh the man.

Wearing flattering underwear is a quick win when it comes to feeling more confident - for guys as well as women.

Fabrics such as mesh and satin feel amazing against the skin while simultaneously flattering your package - making investing in some new undies a no-brainer!

3. Catch up on Your Reading

Forget the sex tips you once read in a copy of Men's Health while waiting for a dentist appointment - if you really want to brush up on your bedroom skills, you'll need to invest in some quality reading material.

Whether you want to learn more about how to satisfy yourself or please a future partner, a better sex guide is a great way to research fantasies and explore new techniques.

4. Get Prepared

You know the old saying 'you can never be too prepared'? Well, this has never been truer than when it comes to sex.

This Valentine's Day, replace any out-of-date condoms that have been gathering dust at the back of your bedside drawer with brand new ones.

From ultra-thin to flavoured, ribbed and even natural - you might be surprised at the selection of condoms available.

If you want to restock your sex stash further, why not invest in a new sex lubricant? As well as being a must-have if you're using a Fleshlight or masturbator, having a decent lube on hand is bound to score you extra points with any future partners!

5. Take Control of the Remote

Does the thought of getting frisky in a public place turn you on? If so, why not try a wearable toy while you're out and about.

Whether you're an experienced user or an anal play novice, we stock a wide range of vibrating remote control butt plugs - from dinky beginners toys to chunkier prostate massagers.

As captain of your own orgasm ship, you're in charge of the vibrations. Simply lube up your chosen toy, slip it in and keep the remote control to hand.
