Remember those itty bitty variety packs of cereals you loved as a kid - how long you’d take to choose which one you were going to eat first, and how they always felt like a huge treat? Give them a naughty grown-up twist by hiding a slip of paper with a sexy dare written on it inside each little box – from ‘Tell me about your hottest ever wet dream’ to ‘Let’s watch ourselves making love in front of a mirror’ and ‘Smooth a long, looping treasure trail of strawberry Durex Play gel onto my skin with your fingertip – then follow the trail with your mouth...”. The cereal your partner opts for determines the dirty dare they have to carry out.
You could also place a different condom from the Durex Surprise Me pick ‘n’ mix pack into each box. It includes Tickle Me and Pleasure Me varieties, which feature ribs and dots to provide extra sensation and stimulation.
Open a new box every day to extend the Valentine’s fun across a whole week.
Give your breakfast a quirky ‘indoor picnic’ vibe by spreading a tablecloth or blanket over the bed or on the floor and laying out tasty treats and finger foods. Once you’re done dining, the throw can do double duty protecting your sheets or carpets as you smooth plenty of Play Feel gel all over each other, then have the slipperiest, slidiest, most gleefully messy wrestling/pillow fighting/sex session on record! Durex Play gels are water-based and non-staining, so simply put everything into the washing machine afterwards to erase every trace of your joyously giddy playtime.
This breakfast is all about getting your 5-a-day (plus at least one orgasm each!). Serve up fresh juices or smoothies; fruit muffins; and a big bowl of cherries…
Challenge each other to see whether you can perform the classic trick of tying a knot in a cherry stalk using only your mouth. To up the ante, set a timer and see who can manage the feat fastest. The winner then has to put their oral dexterity to good use by slicking some Durex Play Strawberry flavoured gel onto their lover, and putting their talented tongue to use elsewhere…
Try passing a cherry back and forth between you and your amore as you kiss, until only the stone is left. Truly take your time, lingering on their lips and kissing deeply, sensuously and indulgently.
Get your lover to lay on their front and close their eyes, then dip your finger in honey/raspberry sauce/fruit juice and write a short message like I WANT YOU on their back. See if they can guess what you’re spelling out before you lick your words away. Be careful not to use sugary syrups or food around your partner’s private parts though, as they can trigger infections or upset these sensitive zones; stick to using Durex pleasure gels and massage gels on intimate areas instead; they’re specially formulated to be body-friendly.
If you’re left feeling a tad icky ‘n’ sticky once this game’s over, jump into the shower or bath together and continue your seduction amid the suds. Durex Real Feel pleasure gel is silicone-based, which makes it water-resistant, and perfect for use in the bathroom. You might imagine things would be wet enough in there, but water can actually wash away a woman’s natural lubrication and make sex uncomfortable; using Real Feel gel helps your bodies slide and glide smoothly again. Lots of Durex’s sex toys are splash-resistant, too; try experimenting with a Durex Play Pleasure Touch vibrations in the tub to add an extra layer of saucy trouble to your bubbles.
This breakfast in bed is guaranteed to help you turn up the heat between the sheets, but it’s themed around all things cool. Spoil your loved one with Champagne on ice, and switch their hot cafetiere of wake-me-up coffee for a refreshing iced latte instead.
Time to get spicy! The spice rack in your kitchen is full of roots, berries, barks and powders that are reputed to have the power to amp up your sex life. Serve your lover a fragrant cup of chai, or hot chocolate infused with cinnamon and a touch of chilli, topped with whipped cream and dusted with nutmeg. All these spices are said to possess aphrodisiac properties – and taste terrific.
Buy fresh cinnamon ring doughnuts from your local bakery, and make sure they’re doused with plenty of sugar. Look deep into your partner’s eyes as you suggestively suck the crystals off your fingers – and theirs – or indulge in a sweet, sugar-frosted snog.
Durex Play Massage 2-in-1 Stimulating contains Guarana - a natural ingredient derived from the seeds of a tree native to the Amazon. Cosy, sleepy, lazy spooning sex can be blissful, but this gel can help ensure you’re stimulated enough not to miss a moment and that you’re able to savour every sensation.
Try hiding a tiny dab of it somewhere on your body, and challenging your partner to find your ‘spicy sweet spot’ with their lips.
