St. Valentine's Day: Advice, Flirtations, and Arched Eyebrows

Happy Valentine's Day all!

We've seen so many Valentine-themed blogs in the past few days that we decided we just had to offer our own thoughts on how to celebrate this holidays for lovers. Candy and flowers are nice, girls, but what do you really want from your man? And men, what would you like your women to do to show you they love you?

A very happy Valentine's Day indeed!

It's a day meant to celebrate love and affection. It's a day where the florists and chocolatiers are at their busiest. It's a day filled with Valentine's cards. In fact, as Scarlett can tell you, it's one of our favourite days.
I'll start by suggesting that as men, we like to feel appreciated.

I know how you like to be appreciated, darling, but maybe you should give our readers some details.

Oh, yes, we're supposed to be behaving ourselves and giving them tips and thoughts.

What do we men want? No, not a case of beer in front of the television. At least not if we're worth anything. I know that's a common stereotype, but not all of us are like that.

It's the little things, really, that make us feel appreciated. Those small gestures of affection. It might just be a momentary rub of an arm. A pat on the back. A kind word.

Oh, and we really like back rubs.

Now when did I ever want you to behave yourself, sweetheart?

Girls, try the back rubs. Try a full-body massage. Try a warm, sensuous bath for two. Sip champagne. Eat chocolate dipped strawberries.

Better yet, feed them to him. Give him a shave. 

A shave, yes. It implies a great deal of trust, guys. She's got that sharp razor at your throat, after all.

And by the way, gentlemen, feeding her those strawberries too is a very good idea. They're tasty... they're good for energy, and both of you will need that energy.

Just take your time. Make sure that champagne's the good kind. And while you've got her in that tub, give her legs a rub. Yes, it might well lead to more vigorous activities, so to speak.... but do it just for the sake of doing it too.

Now, speaking of full body massages, there was this time Scarlett and I got carried away with ourselves in the governor's mansion...

I still don't understand why everyone was so upset. The press catching us certainly drew attention away from the accusations being hurled at him....

We ended up on the cover of every newspaper in the state and the National Enquirer.  I thought we looked fabulous! I don't know why they put those silly black ribbons across our private parts, though....

They're perfectly natural parts of the anatomy, after all, but some people....

Anyway, where were we? Oh, yes. Talking about massages. You can make it a mutual thing, guys. Let her massage you, and do the same in return. And I strongly suggest lots and lots of practice.

And while we're at it, try a couple's massage. Take a weekend away. Go to one of those all inclusive inns. Have a couple's massage done. It's a wonderful way to unwind...

Go to a cozy bed and breakfast, just the two of you. Pamper each other. Indulge each other's fantasies. 

Like that naughty nun James enjoys so much....

The naughty nun. And you look so ravishing in a habit.

Or that dashing swordsman you so adore....

Ah, Zorro. The fox. And James does look so very foxy in that cape, boots, mask, hat...and nothing else. 
His sword is impressive. And that sabre's not bad, either.


  1. I have the least romantic guy in the world!! But, I know one thing that will get him into the mood...a decent steak...
    He took me out to a very fancy restaurant last was very expensive...and he had a $36 plate of steak and lobster tail...He raved about it the whole time we were there. (I guess you get what you pay for)...well, when we got home, he wouldn't let me put my PJ's on, if you know what I mean.

  2. I guess the route to a man's heart really IS through his stomach.

    I am soooo screwed!

  3. When are we going to have the tell all about the governor's mansion incident?

  4. I love a foot massage. It feels incredibly sensual. *Sigh*

  5. Beth and I have the same hubby-bot...mine lays there waiting for it to happen.

  6. I'm beginning to think that men who actually like to be romantic...or even form complete sentences are only in the movies...movies written by women!

  7. @Beth: You don't have the least romantic guy in the world because I'm the least romantic guy in the world.
