An Intimate Valentine's Day Without Sex
Actually, touch, massage and cuddling without sex can be very romantic. It's no longer "foreplay," leading to the climax (pun intended!). It's intimacy in and of itself. Explore and marvel at the changes in your body, and share your hopes and dreams for the new life you are creating. Curl up in each other's arms and enjoy the feelings of safety, security and love experienced within a mere embrace.
Enjoy each other's company, perhaps sharing some intimate secrets that you haven't spoken of before. Or reminisce about how you met, what attracted you to each other, your favorite dating memories, etc. How about watching your favorite movie, listening to music that shapes your mood or cooking a gourmet meal together? Drink alcohol-free champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate.
Sex is an easy way to be loving and romantic. However, exploring and discovering other ways to express your love and commitment to each other can bring your relationship to a whole new level of intimacy.
