7 Ideas for a Sweet and Sex-Positive Galentine's Day

Shoutout to our true soulmates — our friends.

Galentine’s Day is almost here, which means it’s time to celebrate the friendship between you and your real soulmates. Typically celebrated on February 13, Galentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, meaning you will have even more options. Take a tip from our favorite Galentine’s Day fiend from Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope, and show some love to the amazing women in your life.

Below, we round up seven amazing ideas for this special day.

1. Make DIY vulva and penis pottery

Purchase a Valentine’s Day kit from Pottery With A Purpose and make vulva art with your friends. Get even more creative like founder Sam Hoff and try making titty incense holders. The kit comes with both air dry and ceramic options, so you can either make the process fun and easy or level it up with a kiln.

2. Take a pole dancing class for beginners

Pole dancing comes with not only all the benefits of a workout, but also the pleasure of sensuality. It releases those feel-good hormones while helping you and your friends tap into your sexy energy. Don’t worry about not having any experience — the beauty of beginner’s courses and the presence of your friends is that you don’t have to be perfect.

3. Sex-positive binge night

Of course, you can keep it cute and binge-watch your favorite episodes of Sex and the City or enjoy spontaneity with some new favs. Our top two favorite sex-positive shows right now are The Sex Lives of College Girls and Euphoria.

4. Go on a lingerie shopping spree

You don’t need a lover to wear lingerie, and you definitely don’t need a lover to feel sexy. There’s no better confidence boost like admiring yourself in a new set of intimates. Have some fun with it and invite your friends out to go lingerie shopping on Galentine’s Day. You can spend the day laughing, sipping wine and affirming your beauty.

DISCLAIMER: We discourage irresponsible and/or underage drinking. Drink responsibly and legally.

5. Set up a boudoir photoshoot

Gather your friends after your lingerie shopping spree and celebrate femininity with a boudoir photoshoot. Boudoir has so many benefits, from boosting confidence to helping you find your personal aesthetic. For your dream setup, you can either pick up a rosy backdrop and backdrop stand for an at-home shoot, or hire a boudoir photographer to help you execute the vision.

6. The classic: brunch, bottomless mimosas and girl talk

Thankfully, Galentine’s Day this year falls on a weekly holiday: Sunday, which means brunch. In the wise words of Leslie Knope, “Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we just come and kick it breakfast style.” If you’re a brunch enthusiast, feel free to stick to your usual routine. After all, girl time is the best cure.

7. Bonus: visit the Museum of Sex if you’re in New York

The Museum of Sex is a great way to add a sex-positive element to any day in the city. Explore the Superfunland: Journey Into The Erotic Carnival installation if you and your friends enjoy the chaotic and hedonistic side of things.
